Bismillah was performed by Igshaan Adams and his father, Amien Adams, in a dark, dusty basement – the ‘underbelly’ of the 1820 Settlers National Monument that became a grave-like site. Following the Islamic ritual of preparing the body of a relative for burial, Amien Adams tenderly washed, dried, perfumed and wrapped the body before him.
