Mashishing (Lydenburg), Mpumalanga


Mr. W. Language built the mosque in 1935. Mr. A.C Osman and Mr. Nato, chairperson of the Church Council planted the palm trees. The men prey to Allah in the Mosque five times daily (sunrise, one o'clock, four o'clock sundown, later at night). The women prey the same time at home. Before entering the Mosque, the face, hands and feet have to be cleansed.
