Salaams thank you so much for this website. I am looking for information about a mosque that would have been in existence to service the Muslim population in Malay Location Johannesburg (Pageview) around 1880 and a bit earlier. I am in search of Nikkah records for the period 1880-1883. Is there any way you can help me in this regard? I am trying to find our people. Any help or leads you may be able to give me will be highly appreciated.
Johannesburg came into existence after gold was discovered in about 1886, leading to an influx of migrants. The first masjied ‘Kerk Street Mosque was established in about 1906. There are two masaajied in the Pageview area – 17th street and 23rd street mosque, they were established well after 1920
