Islam in Africa

"There are not many ideological options in Africa and I consider the chances for Islamic expansion in Africa to be as good as, if not better than, ever before. I have tried to present a brief sketch of the spread of Islam in Africa, its diversity and some of its problems; but also its unity and immense power when put under pressure by an enemy, as most recently by the threat of Communist military and ideological takeover. We in South Africa are irrevocably involved in the future of Africa, therefore Islam concerns every one of us in a most personal way."
