Our November 10, 2023 print edition featured a centrespread on the theme “African Muslim Intellectual History” which covered a selection of fourteen leading Muslim scholars from the early 19th to the early 20th centuries. (The digital version of the feature in print is available online here).
The project was undertaken in collaboration with Saulat Pervez, a researcher at the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) in Herndon, Virginia, USA. The academic editor of the feature was Dr Muhammed Haron whose academic interests include Islam in Africa.
However, scores of other important scholars could not be included in the infographic due to limited space. These scholars will be featured online, in this space, as an addendum to the infographic in our print edition.
