Two Musjids were built in the South End area of Port Elizabeth, Musjidul Abraar (Rudolph Street) in 1894 and Musjidul Aziz (Pier Street) in 1901.
These Musjids stand as testament to the power of the faith of the Muslims of Port Elizabeth. When South End was declared a white area, there was an uproar from the Muslim community because of the threatened destruction of the Musjids. The matter went as far as the United Nations where the Muslim nations stated that a Musjid can never be demolished.
