MUSJIDUL AZIEZ (Pier Street Mosque, Port Elizabeth, South Africa) is named after the Sultan of Turkey and the Khalifa of the Muslim world, Abdul Aziz, who contributed a few hundred pounds towards the building.
This Musjid was built towards the end of the 19th century. The first Imam was Abdul Wahhab Salie, the son of Abu Salie, one of the Malay pioneers who settled in Strand Street during the early part of the 19th century.
Imam Abdul Wahhab passed away at the age of 114. His grave in the Forest Hill Road Cemetery is easily distinguished by its large tombstone.
