As we remember Brother Madiba, we remember the relationship he had with Islam and the diverse Muslim community in South Africa. We must remember the strong engagement of the South African Muslim community in the struggle against apartheid & the many Muslim activists involved in the ANC, some of whom were in prison with Mandela.

“Today is the birthday of the Prophet Mohammed and our thoughts will be with you and the entire Muslim community, wherever in the world they may be, as you all gather at the various mosques to pay homage to a unique religious leader, whose influence continues to spread to practically every part of the world and to every nation,” – Nelson Mandel
