Islam and Africa

The history, culture and politics of Islam in Africa Today. The legacy of Islam and its contributions to African societies. From Mansa Musa to Malcolm X, Islam has sculpted the African world since it arrived in Africa as a refugee from Arab persecution.

Religions in Africa Today

All spiritual systems practiced traditionally by Africans, whether native or mainstream, are organized religions. The rituals of Voodoo, Orisha, Serer, etc are all highly organized, and without exception function in a communal setting. They all have degrees of a priest class, ceremony, sacrifice, libation, religious holidays, creation stories, saints, divine systems of punishment and reward.

Women’s Empowerment in Islam

One of the key accusations against Muslims today is “inferior treatment of women.” But men have always assumed some superiority over women –Muslim societies are no exception–and have sought to dominate the world and relegate women to the background. Cultures and civilisation have sought to confer legitimacy to this male superiority and have accordingly developed myths and conventions that tend to perpetuate them.
