Since we are critically-thinking human beings, the views of the author may be subject to change, revision, and rethinking at any time. Islamic learning in Africa has always been in fruitful dialogue with broader developments in Islamic intellectual history elsewhere in the world. African Muslims travelled or migrated to the Middle East and other places in the Muslim world. Arabs and others visited or came to live in Africa. Africans read the literatures of Muslims around the globe, and sometimes studied under the great scholars of their time in Cairo and the like. So too did non-Africans read the works of African Muslim scholars, and apprentice themselves to them when given the chance. Historical dynamism, travel, and circulation have been consistent themes… (Introduction (pp. 19-21) Zachary Wright). Join ILS to discover and understand Africa’s role in developing Islamic scholars.
