Some Zulu Muslims

Muaalim Adam Ismail Mmambo a young Zulu Alim who wrote Poetry and Zulu Nasheeds died a few months after this video of one of his works was recorded. I had the honor of getting to know him and his mother Mualima Zuleigha Mmambo where they operated a Madrassa in Delft, Cape Town.

Ismail was proud of his Zulu Culture and was exploring ways of combining his African Roots with his Islamic Values. He questioned why Indians and Malays Muslims were allowed to maintain their cultural identity but Afrikans were expected to abandon theirs when they embraced Islam, have a look at this video to see his point. May ALLAH SWT be pleased with him and his contribution INSHALLAH.
