Title : Annual review of Islam in South Africa (ARISA)

Description :
The Annual Review of Islam in South Africa (ARISA) is produced by the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Cape Town. It publishes works that relate to Islam and Muslims in South Africa, but includes reports on relevant matters from other parts of the African continent. ARISA is jointly edited by Susana Molins Literas and Shaheed Mathee. This homepage allows free access to all articles published in the review between 1998 to 2005. The materials are presented in PDF. Adobe Acrobat Reader is therefore needed for access. Among the articles featured include: 'Aspects of Muslim Participation in the South African Economy'; 'Muslim Political Space in South Africa: Imagining a Local Ummah'; 'Current Research and Writing Relating to Islam and Muslims'; and 'Muslims in the Townships of South Africa'. This should be a useful resource for those seeking a better understanding of the role of Islam in Africa and the experiences of Muslims there.
