Beyond Bilal: Black History in Islam
For far too long, discussions around the black presence in, and contribution to Islam has been limited to Bilal and possibly one or two individuals after him. In Beyond Bilal: Black History In Islam, Mustafa Briggs aims to shine a light on the often unknown and forgotten black legacy in Islam. What is the deep-rooted relationship between Islam and black history? Who are the black prophets and prominent black figures in the Quran and around the Prophet Muhammadﷺ? What is the riveting history of Islam in West Africa and the Diaspora?
This book intends to be a contribution toward the growing discussion around the intersection between Black History and Islam.
