Description

The Auwal Masjid in the colorful suburb of Bo-Kaap is the first and oldest standing mosque in South Africa. In the 1700s Malay slaves brought with them the religion of Islam which led to the construction of this mosque in 1794. The slaves who were brought during the British Occupation of South Africa were not able to practice Islam openly thus the masjid becomes a beacon of hope during these troubled times. Tuan Guru a released prisoner from the infamous Robben Island opened the first Madrasa and thereafter submitted an application to the British government to allow for a masjid to be constructed. This proposal however was sadly refused.
