Q. What is a Memon?

Memons are a group who follow the Islamic faith. According to most reports, Memons trace their origins to Nagar Thatta, in the province of Sindh, India (Now Pakistan). It is believed that in the year 1422 C.E. / 824 A.H, this group comprising of about 700 families, converted to Islam at the hands of the pious saint, Sayed Yusuffuddin Quadri (R.A.), who was a descendant of Hazrat Sheihk Sayed Abdul Qadir Jeelani (R.A) - widely regarded in Islam as the most pious and powerful of all Saints. Sayed Yusuffuddin (R.A.) used the name "Mu'mins" (true believers in Arabic) to describe this group, owing to their absolute faith in God and accepting Muhammad (S.A.W) as the final Prophet. The word Memon originated from this word. Wherever they have migrated, Memons have always been at the forefront of trade and industry, blessed with great business acumen. It is in gratitude to the Almighty that the Memons consider it their duty to assist those who are less fortunate. The SAMF is thus a platform on which this may be achieved.
