Islam was introduced in Zambia through Arab traders who entered the region through Malawi and Tanzania. Zambia was under British colonial rule till 1964, when it gained independence. During the colonial era, many Muslims migrated from the Indian subcontinent, adding up to the number of Muslims in Zambia. It was in the 1970s when the Muslims of Zambia began to create organizations that represented the Muslims of the state. 

The majority of the Muslims are Sunni, and only a few belong to the Shia and Ahmadi sects. Most Muslims are immigrants from India, West Africa, and the Middle East. Only a few Muslims are the natives who converted to Islam.  There are around 115 mosques in Zambia today, representing the freedom Zambia gives religious communities.
