Great Muslims of the West
Muhammad Mojlum Khan
Muslims have lived in the West for hundreds of years, yet the lives of all but a few are little known. In this illuminating work, Muhammad Mojlum Khan sets out to change this by revealing the lives and impact of over fifty significant Muslims, from the founder of Muslim Spain in the eighth century to Muhammad Ali.
Including the contributions of great philosophers, scientists and theologians, alongside the achievements of musicians, sportspeople and writers, this work shows just how diverse, original and positive the Muslim influence on the West has been, and continues to be.
This extraordinary book features biographies on the enslaved African Prince Ayuba Sulaiman Diallo, who was put to work in the tobacco fields of Maryland; Abdullah Quilliam, the Victorian Shaykh of the British Isles; Alexander Russell Webb, the voice of Muslims in Victorian America; and W.D. Muhammad, Elijah Muhammad’s son, who mentored Malcolm X and transformed the Nation of Islam in the United States.
