Alhamdulillah the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has extended Radio Islam’s broadcasting licence for an additional five years.
Radio Islam has captivated the hearts of its listeners not only in South Africa, but throughout the world and remains an award winning community radio station.
The station was registered in November 1993 as a section 21 company. It was granted a license in April 1997 and the first signal broadcast was on the 10 April 1997.
Since inception Radio Islam has established a captive audience based on its specific religious content. With internal growth, wider expertise and a broader range of content has attracted a wide audience in areas well beyond its licence mandate.
Radio Islam is guided by the Noble Qur'aan and the Sunnah (traditions of the Prophet Muhammad, (peace be upon him). It has also become synonymous with Islamic values and a tool to dispel misconceptions relating to Islam and Muslims in South Africa and abroad.
The station has become a beacon of guidance and an invitation to the world. Through the broadcast of high quality info-edutainment, Radio Islam has become a bridge across the community divide.
Radio Islam takes this opportunity to thank its loyal listeners for their continued dedication and support.
