During that time, he founded AL AQSA SUNNI CENTRE, a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to spreading true knowledge of Deen Islam.
For the past 40 years, he has accomplished highly laudable religious activities, ranging from publishing dozens of books, pamphlets, organising seminars to giving hundreds of speeches in créole (native language in Mauritius) and Urdu.
