Visits to Shrines & A brief History of the Origins of the Islamic Faith in South Africa

Nazeem takes us on Karamat, visits to several shrines in Cape Town, dedicated to brave leaders who nurtured the faith of Islam. Many where banished from their homelands and came to the Cape Colony, as prisoners, in chains and shackles. Despite their struggles in a foreign land, many were supportive to the slave population of the 1600 and beyond. They inspired them with teachings from the Holy Scriptures and a following was born.
