Ahlan Wa Sahlan / Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the Islamic Council of South Africa (ICSA). We are proud to announce that we have moved to our new premises in Mount View, Cape Town. ICSA was originally formed as an umbrella body of Muslim organizations in South Africa. Prior to its establishment in 1975 the affairs of the Muslim community were expressed in local and regional bodies and institutions, but the need for a central organ for the better ordering of its life, had been long felt. During 1975, Dr. Inamullah Khan visited South Africa as representative of the Rabitul Alam.Al Islamic, Makkah. Dr. Inamullah felt that the Muslims of South Africa urgently needed a common platform and a single voice to enable the community to become a living and prosperous part of that great body, the World Muslim Community. His urgent pleas created the impetus that soon after led to the establishment of the Islamic Council of South Africa (ICSA) on 29 November 1975. Representatives from 109 organisations, covering nearly all major institutions of the country, assembled in Durban and unanimously approved a provisional Constitution and elected the first interim Board of Directors.
