Milestones in the History of Islam
by Ismael Ibrahim Mukhtar
Milestones in the History of Islam in Eritrea, a new book by ISMAEL IBRAHIM MUKHTAR.
When I first embarked on my research on the histories of Islam and Muslims in Eritrea in the mid to late 1990s there were only a handful of publications on the subject. The few available English and other European language works were outdated, both in terms of the information that they provided and their general approach to the topic. And though the independence of Eritrea in the early 1990s spurred a small flurry of publications during that decade, those focusing on Islam and Muslims were mostly written in Arabic and printed in several cities across the Middle East (I vividly remember acquiring a number of books in Cairo in 2000). These publications were therefore less accessible to many otherwise interested potential readers, both in Eritrea and outside it. That post-Independence momentum and excitement was sustained for some time. The opening-up of the country to research after long decades allowed researchers, including myself, to conduct fieldwork studies, consult archival collections in Eritrea and unearth new historically valuable sources. The fruits of those efforts were published in a number of books and articles that presented new information and insight on the characteristics and trajectories of Islam in Eritrea. Read more:
