    Written by NEWS DESK Wednesday, 03 June 2009 16:21 The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has released a 332-pages book that details the contribution of Islam to civilization and culture in eastern Africa.
    Titled ‘Islamic Civilisation in Eastern Africa,’ the book is a collection of 21 papers written by eminent scholars in history, political science, sociology, literature and Islam. They include Prof. Ali A. Mazrui. The book published in Turkey, under the supervision of OIC Secretary General, Prof Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, focuses on Somalia, Ethiopia, Djibouti, Eritrea, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Mozambique, Rwanda, Eastern Congo, the Comoros, South Africa, Yemen and Oman.
    The 21 articles were presented at an international symposium in Kampala, between December 15 and 17 2003.

    The symposium was jointly organised by Research Centre for Islamic History, Art and Culture (IRCICA), Istanbul, Turkey and the Islamic University in Uganda (IUIU).
    The articles were edited by Prof. Abdu B. K. Kasozi, Executive Director of the National Council for Higher Education and Dr. Halit Eren director of IRCICA.
    In his article ‘Africa and Islamic Civilisation: The East African Experience’ which forms chapter one of the book, Prof. Mazrui raises the possibility of Africa merging with the Middle East at one time in history because of the influence of Islam.

    “By far, the most ambitious idea of floating in the new era of Afro-Islamic speculation is whether the whole of the Arab world are two regions in the process of merging into one. Out of this speculative discourse has emerged the concept of Afrabia. Eastern Africa has been the starting point of a gradual merger between Africa and the Middle East. Sudan, Somalia and the Swahili coast have been the vanguard,” writes Mazrui.

    Some of the contributions of Islam to culture and civiliasation, Mazrui says, include gender empowerment and calendar, clock and alphabet.
    He says that indigenous cultures in East Africa gave more roles to women than Islam did, while Islam gave more rights to women than indigenous culture had.
    Other contributors include; Dr. Fatima Adam (Nigeria), Prof. Hussein Ahmed (Ethiopia), Dr. Ahmad Kawesa Sengendo (Rector IUIU) and Associate Prof. Ibrahim al-Zein Soghayroun (Muscat).
    The book is yet to hit the market in Uganda but copies for reading are available at all campuses of the Islamic University in Uganda (IUIU).

    This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah.
    Who believe in the Unseen, are steadfast in prayer, and spend out of what We have provided for them;
    And who believe in the Revelation sent to thee, and sent before thy time, and (in their hearts) have the assurance of the Hereafter.
    They are on (true) guidance, from their Lord, and it is these who will prosper.
    As to those who reject Faith, it is the same to them whether thou warn them or do not warn them; they will not believe.
    Allah hath set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing, and on their eyes is a veil; great is the penalty they (incur).
    Q 2:2-7

    I certainly fear Alah but it may not be my guidance! Or is your guidance every body's guidance?

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

    It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?

    You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

    We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

    As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

    X Paster, before you jump and post doubted ayats that supports your beliefs/faith, I argue you to tell us what is Civilization, islam, and islamization and how did islam influence and/or causes civilization in todays poor african continent. As well, tell us, when and where did civilization started.

    Hawa wanaojiita 'wanataaluma' wanazungumzia tu 'middle eastern civilization' na hawasemi juu ya utumwa ulioletwa na waarabu kwa karne kadhaa Afrika ya Mashariki. Au wanafikiri hatujasoma historia?

    Kwani utumwa ulikuwa ni wa taifa moja tu, dunia nzima nguvu kazi iliendeshwa kwa kutumia watumwa.
    Je kuna nchi ya ulaya (Ukristo) ambayo hakukuwa na watumwa?

    Kwa kuwa Ulaya kulikuwa na utumwa ndio iwe excuse ya kutouzungumzia utumwa waliouleta Waarabu na kuwatesa vibaya babu zetu bila ya utu na huruma? Two wrongs can not make a right! Wasituletee hizo 'civilization' za kujilipua na mabomu, wabaki nazo huko huko Mashariki ya Kati. Karne hizi sio za kudanganyana-everything is very clear.

    ukristo uliletwa na wazungu tanzania na africa je wale watumwa kule marekani na ulaya walipelekwa na nani kama sio hao manabii wa kizungu waliowafundisha nyinyi?

    Sasa kama kuna waarabu walichukua watu watumwa point yako ni nini?

    That is why you can not answer me. I asked you a very simple question, I will quote again for easy of reference:

    "X Paster, before you jump and post doubted ayats that supports your beliefs/faith, I argue you to tell us what is Civilization, islam, and islamization and how did islam influence and/or causes civilization in todays poor african continent. As well, tell us, when and where did civilization started"

    Lete burdan tusome.

    Tatizo sio sasa kama waarabu walichuwa watumwa, tatizo where are blacks arabs like the one we in US of A, Nikimaanisha African Americans. LOL.

    Pili, lete habari kuhusu hiyo civilization iliyo letwa na Mwamedi mtume wenu, tuione, na siyo maneno matupu.

    Just look, hapo kwenu Tanzania, Ukienda mikoa iliyo pitiwa na waarabu, kama LINDI, TABORA, NK, ndiyo inaongoza kwa UMASKINI, au sio? Je hiyo, ndio civilization unayo zungumzia? Hivi unafikiri kila mtu hapa JF ni mtumwa wa marehemu mwamadi na ni mbumbumbu kama Muhammadans?

    Msaidie ndugu yako XP kujibu hoja ya civilization.

    Jukwaa limevamiwa...!

    Sasa si ukawashtaki hao Waarabu walio wachukuwa babu zako utumwa? Ukilalamika hapa JF haitokusaidia... Kuna mahakama za kimataifa, pia kuna mawakili wa haki za binadamu... waone wanaweza kukusaidia.
