About ICSA

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.

Vision and mission statement
