Islam Around The World!!! Give Your Contribution

71 posts in this topic

As Salaam Wa Alaikum

There are Middle Eastern people here in South Africa but there are only a few in numbers. There are foreigners here not perminant residence if you know what I mean. There are many Pakistanis Nigerians Congolese and many other North Africans that try to come into SA but they are illegal immigrants. As for Arabs I do not think that there are here. If and when they come it is for visiting the country. Islam amongst the foreigners that come here is not strong. I have visited many countrys and I would like to confirm that in my opinion Islam is pretty powerful here in SA. They may be a few that go astray but the majority are very staunch in their belief.

Here in SA we are also free to wear what we want. But alot of the muslims are now trying to wear the hijab. In the past the woman just wore the long dress with the pants but now they are wearing the abayas and hijabs There the youngsters that still wear the jeans with long tops and have their hair covered so it is pretty flexible.

You know what sis, So far 3 South Africans have approached me In the college campus, 2 of them were asian, all of them asked me If I was a christian, I just don't get it. I am a hijabi all covered up and people mistake me for a Christian? rolleyes.gifI just wonder why they thought I was a christian? The fact that they happened to come from SA made me wonder if maybe in S-A christian women wear hijabs maybe? Like I said I just don't know. But I found it a bit Odd. Just thought to share this with ya.

at first it left me all in amazement but after the second time and a third person came along to ask me the same questions, I begin finding it all amusing lol.

My brother brother and I were watching a movie that was in a medieval type of setting. I said, "Why are all the women wearing hijabs?"

All of the women had thier heads convered. Then I said, "Oh yeah, this must have been in a time when people were still practicing modesty."

Alhamdulillah, you get to make a little dawah to those who ask you if you are christian. Obviously they don't know about Islam too much so it is good exposure. Jazaki Allah

It is strange why these people asked you if you were christian. I guess they just did not want to take things for granted and assume that you were muslim. Or maybe they have visited other countries were the christian people also wore hijab. Most North African countries were the hijabs even if they are not muslims. It is just their dress code which is very traditional and it is very similar to our hijabs. LOL Here in South Africa you can certainly tell the difference between the christians and the muslims. Even when some of the muslims try to hide their identity by wearing western clothing you can some how tell if they are muslim or not. Strange but true.

How would you pronounce this name. Will the d be silent. It is quite cute. Also when you say that in Indonesia has the most muslims. Is it relative to land size or it really has the most muslims regardless of the size of the country. If this is the case then well done. HATS OFF TO INDONESIA.

In Number they have the Biggest muslim population, Look out for indonasia in the future, I am counting on indonasia for several reaons one is ; They'll be the strongest muslim country in the world, they are not vulnerable as many muslim countries are.

Do you have any idea how much the west fears indonasia?

ps: I'm not from indonasia;)

Yes the horsies beat everything, else hands down :smilingfl

I guess I answered your question in my previous reply. There is truly more to indonasia then just being blessed with the biggest muslim population.
