The early 13th century is ultimately known for the uprising of two influential civilization in Tropical Africa and Asia. Sultan Iltutmish is credited as the founder of Delhi, while Sundiata is recognized as the founder of Mali. Although the Delhi Sultanate originated in India and the Mali Empire in Western Africa, both empires’ political, social, and economic structures are perceived to be established around a certain idealistic belief. The authoritarian structure of Delhi and Mali’s government system and the rigorous framework of their military were cultivated by adapting early Islamic culture; nevertheless, this commonality shared between the two civilizations resulted in the diversity of Mali’s wealth relying heavily on long distance trade,
Islam is the second biggest religion and fastest growing in the world today. Islam is a religion that Muslims follow and is a monotheistic faith regarded as revealed through Muhammad as the prophet of Allah. For Muslims, Muhammad is the last prophet and Abraham is the patriarch of the Qur’an, Bible and Torah. Islam is followed by over a billion people and Muslims make up approximately one quarter of the world’s population. Islam spread quickly during the 600’s trade, choice, and conquest.
European imperialism not only involved Africa, imperialism stretched from North America to Asia and Australia. Western Europe and the empires that existed within it, were the most advanced during the time of imperialism and colonisation and the reach of these empires was worldwide and their impacts are still seen today. Due to the comparatively late decolonisation in Africa, the effects are more prominent there than anywhere else today. This does not deduct from the fact that the effects of European imperialism cannot be seen elsewhere. Similar to Africa, colonisation allowed for infrastructure to be vastly improved and modern technology improved their lives.
British and French European countries were considered the biggest winners in the “race” to size African colonies in 1914. By 1885 the only two African countries to remain independent was Ethiopia and Liberia.(Doc A) John Ruskin announced in his lecture at Oxford University February 8, 1870 that the colonist “first aim” should be “to advance the power of England by land and by sea” This influence that John had for the European countries was a great impact for imperialism in Africa . Great Britain made about 3 million dollars from exports to South Saharan Africa in 1854 and this number increased to 20 million in 1900. This change in rate of growth for exports in Great Britain was a cause for competition in Africa among the European countries with the resources Africa was providing such as copper, zinc, lead, and coal.
The Mali Empire was located along the Niger River and included even more land than the Empire before it, Ghana. Like its predecessors, they also participated in salt and gold trade. Mali had a famous Muslim leader by the name of Mansa Musa. He spread Islam throughout West Africa and went on a famous pilgrimage to Mecca. He also supported education and Islam so he had scholars set up schools and mosques in Mali.
Decolonization refers to the process by which colonies became independent and were allowed to govern themselves; from a state of ‘colony’ to that of ‘Republic’. Presently, there are 16 remaining non self-governing territories (Decolonization, 2015). It took different forms with different countries. For some, it was gradual and peaceful while others were violent and characterized by native rebellions who were fired up by nationalism. There were various factors that led to decolonization in Africa particularly after the Second World War (WWII) when European countries generally lacked the wealth and political support necessary to suppress revolts in the colonies (Decolonization, 2015).
The creation of Islam in the Middle East and its future spread to the other parts of the world beginning in the 600s allowed for diverse and powerful societies to be formed with the monotheistic religion being either the foundation or a major influence. With Islam’s large spread across Africa, Asia, Europe, and continual spread in the Middle East, empires like al-Andalusia and Ghana arose in the West and the Ottoman and Mughal arose in the Eastern part of the world. Islamic beliefs and values shaped these empires similarly to how Christianity became the leading influence in Europe. Moorish rule in the Western Muslim society of Spain lasted for seven hundred years and clean and lavish cities created under their rule served as a contrast to the
In History of Africa, Shillington focuses on many aspects of African culture and factors that made Africa to be the continent that it is today. Chapter 5 primarily focuses on the Northern region of Africa and how empires took over and spread their ideology technology, and culture all through out the region. Even today some remnants of the Roman and Greek empire live on to this day (Shillington, 69.) Despite many people getting the impression that Northern Africa is only influenced by Arabic and Islam, these empires and their conquests are best understood through topics like intricate trading routes, farming, and the spread of religion. Shillington provides an in depth analysis of how many of these conquests affected Northern Africa centuries ago and today.
Dr. Amer Ahmed’s discussion educated me about the history of Islam and how it has influenced hip-hop throughout the years. Islam was prevalent in Africa through trade prior to the start of the transatlantic slave trade in the 15th century. Arabs migrated to North Africa, specifically Somalia and Ethiopia, seeking refuge, and along the way, began trading and sharing ideas with the natives. Over the next century, 44.7 percent of Muslims ruled Africa, and Islam began to spread into western parts of Africa. When slaves were brought to America from West Africa, the practice of Islam was carried on through oral tradition.
Arab armies spread Islam through the Middle East and beyond. Muslim traders also spread Islam. The Islamic territory ranged from northern Afghanistan to northern parts of Africa to Spain and centered in the Middle East, which gave them a geological advantage in terms of trade. The Islamic
