Indigenising Islam as a Minority: A South African Community with Southeast Asian Origins, and the case of Shaykh Seraj Hendricks
The Middle East Institute at the National University of Singapore, in coordination with Wardah Books, invites you to join Dr Hisham A. Hellyer (Cambridge University’s Centre for Islamic Studies), in conversation with Dr Suzaina Kadir (Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, NUS) and Mr Fazlur Rahman bin Kamsani (Middle East Institute, NUS), for a discussion on the ‘indigenisation’ of Islam as minorities, with reflections on the South African Capetonian Muslim community in general, and the example of the late Shaykh Seraj Hendricks, often referred to as the ‘Mufti of Cape Town’.
Dr Hisham A. Hellyer will also be sharing insights on his recently published Shaykh Seraj Hendricks: A Luminous Lamp in the Shade of Table Mountain.
Copies of the book will be available for sale after the talk.
