The first copy of the Qur’an in Uganda

The first copy of the Qur’an in Uganda reached Buganda Kingdom in the 19th Century at the hands of traders from the East African coast, who also introduced Islam. 

The copy is handwritten and incomplete. It is preserved at Nabulagala-Kasubi Mosque, where an Islamic museum is being constructed. (PHOTO BY BAKKABULINDI KAGIMU)
