Islam in Swaziland

Baitul Hadi mosque, Hlatikulu

The nation of Swaziland is home to over 1 million people, of which approximately 10% are identified as Muslims according to CIA, most of whom belong to Sunni branch.[1] Islam in Swaziland probably dates to the colonial period, when, as in Swaziland's much larger neighbor South Africa, many Muslims settled in the country from other countries under the dominion of the British Empire. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community claims 250 members in the country.[2]
