October 25, 2005 / Ramadhan 21, 1426H - Anjung Rahmat, Kuala Lumpur - ABIM received a guest from South Africa, Sister Semetjane B.M. @ Maryam. She is now in Malaysia doing her task of collecting donations and seeking sponsorship for Mosque and Private School in Soweto, Johannesburg, South Africa.

During the discussion with her, she who is coverted Christian Methodist said that there is great potential for the spread of Islam within the Black communities of South Africa especially after the post era of Apartheid Regime. Sister Maryam who is white woman married to a black man, Imam Ibrahim who is the Imam of Soweto Mosque. Imam Ibrahim succesfully made a number of Muslims in Soweto increasing from 2000 to 10 000 Muslims now.

She is calling upon GPTD to do some social service overthere eventhough for a short period. InsyaAllah GPTD will think about the invitation seriously.
