Western Cape Islamic Mosques Masjids - Claremont Main Road Mosque, Claremont, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa

The Claremont Main Road Mosque was established in 1854 and is the sixth oldest mosque in South Africa. It was the second mosque to be built outside the Bo-Kaap. It was administered for over 100 years by the Abderoef family, descendants of Tuan Guru. The first mosque Board in 1978 adopted the mosque constitution and established a system of democratic governance. Under the leadership of Imam Gassan Solomon the mosque played a prominent role in the anti-apartheid struggle during the 1980s. This legacy continues to define the role of CMRM as socially responsive in the post-apartheid period.
