Islam in Cape Verde

Islam in Cape Verde is a minority religion with a small but growing community.[1] Most Muslims are immigrants from Senegal and other neighboring countries, and are active in small-scale commerce and souvenir trade.

According to A Semana, Cape Verdean Muslims celebrate Muhammad's birthday through the country.[2]
