13:36
938 views
When we think of the Muslim world, we usually think of the Arab World and surrounding nations. Often, we overlook areas like sub-Saharan West Africa, home to millions of Muslims. Today we'll look at the history of Islam in the region, with a particular focus on Timbuktu, an important centre of learning in the medieval Mali Empire. To embark on this historical journey, we're joined by Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick. Dr. Quick is a Senior Lecturer at the Islamic Institute of Toronto; Head of the History Department of Al-Maghrib Institute; and Outreach Coordinator for the Canadian Council of Imams. He holds a PhD in West African Islamic History from the University of Toronto.
