This was a very interesting read especially for anyone interested in anthropology or historical customs It is an ancient travelogue of a guy named Ibn Battuta He traveled around the Middle East Asia Minor India and Africa for 29 years During this time the majority of the people in these places were Muslim and this common cultural element is what enabled Ibn Battuta free reign to travel where he pleased He would stay in places for a few days or a few months Everywhere he went he wrote about his activities people s customs and his thoughts about what he saw From the introduction it sounds like he wrote about all of his travels but this book only covers his travels across Africa specifically down the eastern coast along the Indian Ocean and across the western Sahara This is not a modern travelogue so there are portions that are somewhat dry However it s also a very fast read and has a lot of fascinating details It s also a short read The tale itself is only 75 pages long with the rest of the book being footnotes and appendixes

رحلة ابن بطوطة في افريقيا

Boring states during its period of prosperity from mining and the trans Saharan trade He wrote disapprovingly of sexual integration in families and of a hostility toward the white man Ibn Battuta's description is a uniue document of the high culture pride and independence of Black African states in the fourteenth century This book is on. Ibn Battuta which means son of Battuta is a Moroccan Muslim scholar and traveler who visited many different parts of globe specifically the Muslim world in the 1300s during its sunshiny Golden Age Ibn Battuta s sentiments and opinions towards many aspects of black culture and leadership were often shaped by his religious knowledge about prayers generosity modes of dress and the treatment of rulers which makes it a work addressed specifically to Muslims although it is interesting and insightful enough to be read by everyone His list of good ualities and bad ualities which he found specifically in the Malli kingdom during the reign of Mansa Suleiman was sculpted by his background knowledge as an Islamic learner and scholar Among the good ualities he observed for example were the prevalence of peace in their country the meticulous observance of the prayers and the memorization of the uran by heart On the other hand the ualities Ibn Battuta did not like were the ways that slave girls dressed or rather did not dress at all and the practice of eating animals that was not prescribed in the uran to eat and the practice of dusting one s head in front of the Mansa ruler On many occasions he had a laughable amount of self esteem which prompted him to deliberately expect a certain degree of hospitality When he did receive that he would praise the black person profusely Hence most of the practices that Ibn Battuta expressed distaste for fundamentally refuted Islamic teachings while practices for which he expressed adoration and amazement are in sync with the teachings of his religion or his Arab culture He was a curious observant man and this book reveals a lot about Islam in Africa during the 1300s including trade culture food clothing entertainment ect I also personally would like to do research about slavery that existed in Africa at this time

    The Muslim world of the 14th century, just like the Roman world of the 2nd century AD or the world of the Fertile Crescent Civilizations 3000 1000 BC, was pretty much just like ours in the ways that count.The realm of Islam covered much of the known world in the 14th century. Some people traveled around it just for the sake of experience and such, like this guy. He was from Morocco, and made it as far as China, Europe, and Sub Sa

    Extremely interesting first documented report by a traveler in Western and Eastern Africa. It provides a rare non racist and non european insight to the cultures and realities of Mali and the Swahili coast 700 years ago.
