Muslims in South Africa are a minority, making up approximately 2 % of the population only. However, we are strongly represented in government, business and community. Muslim struggle heroes were right up there with Nelson Mandela helping to free South Africa from the clutches of apartheid. Muslim women in South Africa are free to wear the hijab and the niqab and, in general, we are free to practice our beautiful religion. We are fortunate to have hundreds of masjids all over the country, halaal consumer bodies and strictly halaal restaurants, Muslim B&B’s, Islamic radio stations and madressahs.
