Meet the Founder of IMAZ

Dr Hassan Ashmawy, Founder of the Islamic Medical Association of Zimbabwe

Dr. Hassan Ashmawy

Motivated by people who needed help due to suffering, Dr. Ashmawy felt duty bound to assist the community in any way possible. The thought of a medical service offered under the umbrella of Islam was mooted.


Welcome to the Islamic Medical Association of Zimbabwe (IMAZ). Here you will find information on our activities, milestones and future plans.

About the Association

In October 2006 Medical Doctors and Pharmacists of Bulawayo came together and established the Islamic Medical Association of Zimbabwe (IMAZ). With the objective of alleviating the plight and suffering of people who needed medical assistance under the umbrella of Islam.

Through the assistance of the community, they purchased a clinic in Bulawayo and named it Al Shifa clinic. IMA South Africa donated a mobile clinic, which enables them to conduct outreach programmes in the outlying areas

IMAZ has established branches in Harare and Kwekwe. It is in the process of establishing Al Shifa clinics in these centres.

IMAZ received branch status from IMA South Africa, recognition from Zimbabwe Medical Association ZIMA, and is a member of Federation of Islamic Medical Associations (FIMA). It has a membership of more than 20 Doctors countrywide and is expected to grow.
