In Memoriam - Marhum Haji Alibhai Ebrahim (1889-1962)

New Picture 3Alibhai Ebrahim sailed from India at the age of 13 in 1902 for Dar es Salaam. He then went to Lindi and joined in the shop of his brother. In 1904 he returned to Dar es Salaam. At that time the country was under the German rule. In Dar es Salaam he started the business of hiring hand-carts and rickshaws. There were no motor vehicles at that time so hand-carts were used to move merchandise from the port. Most of the businessmen were in Bagamoyo and Dar es Salaam was a very small town.
The Ithna-Asheri community in Dar es Salaam was about 200. The Imambara was made up of corrugated iron sheets and namaz was also conducted at the same place. With the cooperation of community members the mosque was built in 1907. The main mode of transport was by foot, except for the wealthy, old and the sick who used machera (litter - carried by porters). The railway was introduced in 1905. Most of the houses in Dar es Salaam were made up of mud with the exception of those belonging to German officers and some among the wealthy. Dar started booming after the construction of the railway.
The Musafarkhana was built in 1912 with some trust money held by Nasser Virji. A new Imambara was built in 1941 entirely from the contribution by members. Mr Gulamhussein Virji had put a lot of effort towards the construction of the Imambara.
