    Zeenat al-Islam Masjid, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe
    Imam: Maulana Nu’man
    Contact person: Mr Nuruddin Cassim, 30 Tewkesbury Road, Montrose, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe
    Telephone: 09 263 474770 (home), 09 263 69281 (office), 023406295 (cellular telephone)
    Masjid address: Volshenk Drive (off Reynolds Drive), Barham Green, Bulawayo, Zimbabwe
    Built and used by Cape Malay Muslims who had settled there from Cape Town and Kimberley, South Africa, during the early 1900s, this small mosque is otherwise known as the “Cape Malay Masjid”. Although the local people have lost all traces of “kombuis” Afrikaans, good “Cape Malay” surnames such as Cassim and Hendricks abound. A brass plaque says that the mosque library was opened by Boeta Moghammed [sic] Volkwijn. Dhuhr Salāh is done after the (Friday) Jumu’ah Salāh, of all things. The influence of Malawian Muslims has added to this practice. Like many Cape Muslims, men in Barham Green, Bulawayo, grasp one another by the thumb before shaking hands. They have also retained the Thursday evening Ratib al-Haddad dhikrullāh of their forefathers. A lovely garden adds to the serenity of the Zeenat al-Islam Masjid.
