Blacks & North Africans in Islam,
*[A5] Paperback - 190 pages,
by Habeeb Akande,
Published by Taha.

Description :

Illuminating the Darkness is about the status of blacks and North Africans in Islam. The book is divided into two sections:

Part I : The first part of the book explores the concept of race, 'blackness', slavery, interracial marriage and racism in Islam in the light of the Qur'an, Hadith and early historical sources.

Part II : The second part of the book consists of a compilation of short biographies of noble black and North African Muslim men and women in Islamic history including Prophets, Companions of the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, and more recent historical figures. The reader is given a fascinating glimpse into the lives of truly noble characters, from luminous scholars to leaders of whole African civilisations.

The reader needs no other discrimination while reading this book than the one the author strives to make clear throughout: the din of Islam is not only free of racism but is utterly opposed to it as the most aberrant form of jahiliyyah (ignorance).

Habeeb Akande was born in London, England, graduating from Kingston University with a First Class BA with Honours degree in Business and Film Studies. After his graduation, Habeeb travelled to Cairo, Egypt in pursuit of studying traditional Islamic Sciences.

A student of the Maliki school of jurisprudence, Habeeb studied Arabic, Islamic Law and Islamic History at al-Azhar High School and University.
