Islam in South Africa
Mr. Paruk, a sugar mill owner, became
President of the Natal Indian Congress in 1940 when a group led by A. I.
Kajee revived the NIC, refusing to recognise the amalgamation of the NIC and
the Colonial Born and Indian Settlers Association in 1939 to form the Natal
Muslim near Durban,
Some Note from above website>
1869 Arrival of Muslims from Gujarat
and Kathiawar 40
Since 1869, Muslims from the Indian States of
Gujarat and Kathiawar arrived in South Africa and were referred to as
"Passenger" Indians by the authority. These immigrants paid their
own travel expenses, and came with the specific purpose of trading and
commerce. They served as wholesalers and retailers in urban towns, backward
rural towns, coal mining areas and also in several developed White centres in
Natal and the Transvaal. They called themselves "Arabs", probably
because they wished to be identified as Muslims. These "Arab"
traders from Western India possessed sufficient resources to establish
themselves as traders in staple items imported from India, such as rice,
ghee, dholl, tamarinds, dried fish, etc. Within two decades, they captured a
large share of the local trade in the rural areas of Natal and the Transvaal.
This displeased the White traders and so in the 1890s legislation was passed
placing further restrictions and growth on the Indian traders as a whole.
1874 Arrival of Ismail Kajee and other
businessmen from Gujarat 44
Another batch of Gujarati-speaking Muslims
arrived in Natal. Amongst them were Ismail Kajee,
father of the notable A I Kajee [d 1948, aged 52],
who arrived from Mauritius where he was in business, and Cassim
Paruk of the present Nu-Shop group of retail business outlets.
After 1875 more experienced "Arab"
traders began to dominate the retail trade and even entered the wholesale
business. The statistics show that there were in Durban in:
* 1870 two free Indian stores
* 1875 ten free Indian and one "Arab" stores
* 1880 thirty free Indian and seven "Arab"
· 1885 there were as
much as 40 "Arab" stores in and around Durban.
1884 Arrival of Esmail
Another prominent Muslim, Esmail
Mahomed Paruk, born in 1867 in Kathore, India, arrived from
Mauritius and settled in Durban and soon established his first retail
business in West Street. Thereafter, he went into wholesale trade; his firm
becoming one of the biggest concerns in Natalamongst the Indians. As a
financial giant, he extended his activities into milling and tea estates on the
north coast of Natal.
The magnanimous E M Paruk had an imposing
house at 383 Currie Road, Durban, where India's first Agent-General, Srinivasan
Sastri , lived at a time when White-owned hotels were open only
to members of the White community. E M Paruk became a Trustee of the West
Street Masjid in 1899 and served as Chairman of the Trust Board until his
death in 1942.
1885- Construction of West Street

The Juma Masjid Sunnat Jamat Anjuman Islam,popularly known
as West Street Masjid, was built in 1885, four
years after the construction of the Grey Street Masjid.
1890 Formation of the Indian Committee Durban 55
1893 Arrival of Mohandas Karamchand
A litigation, involving £40 000.0.0d [forty
thousand punds sterling], between the firms of Dada Abdulla and Company,
merchants and shipping agents in Durban, and Tayob Hajee Khan Mahomed and
Company of Pretoria, saw the arrival of Mohandas Karamchand
Gandhi [d 1948] in Durban. Gandhi, who came from Gujrat and
speaking Gujarati as well as Kutchi, "had been hired by the Porbundar
branch of Dada Abdulla's firm to assist their team of lawyers as an
interpreter and adviser.
1894 Founding of the Natal Indian
South Africa around 1900 AD
There were a few hundred people in the village. The oldest
of them remembered the days when the coastlines of Natal were covered with
natural bush being cleared by colonial settlers for the planting of cane
which became the crop on which the colony's later prosperity depended. Some
of them had arrived from India under the recruitment of contract labour
instituted by the British Government in agreement with the Government of
India. These were the indentured labourers. They were housed, fed and paid
ten shillings a month to till the earth, tend, and raise the crops, and
provide some of the domestic service which the Zulu was then not able to
