Islam and Blackness (Hardback)

£25.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

It is commonly claimed that Islam is antiblack, even inherently bent on enslaving Africans. Western and African critics alike have contended that antiblack racism is in the faith's very scriptural foundations and its traditions of law, spirituality and theology. But what is the basis for this?







Bestselling scholar Jonathan A.C. Brown examines Islamic scripture, law, Sufism and history to determine the extent to which this claim is true - and why. Locating the origins of the accusation in the old trope of Barbary enslavement, modern Afrocentrism and conservative politics, he explains how antiblackness arose in the Islamic world and became entangled with normative tradition. From the imagery of 'blackened faces' in the Quran to Shariah assessments of Black women as undesirable and the assertion that Islam and Muslims are foreign to Africa, this work provides a comprehensive study of the controversial knot that is 'Islam and Blackness', and identifies authoritative voices in Islam's past that are crucial for combatting antiblack racism today.
