Shia Islam in South Africa
Shia Islam historically has had minimal presence in South Africa, which is heavily Sunni with some small Ahmadiyya and Shia minority. However, following the 1979 Iranian Revolution there were allegedly some sympathetic conversions of Sunnis to Shiism. In the same period, the Ahlul-Bayt Foundation and the scholar Seyed established a Shia mosque in the Cape Town neighbourhood of Ottery.
