Abstract:The central concerns of this study are with the development of Islam in Malawi, the response of the Christian missionaries, and the relationship between these two phenomena between 1875 and 1940. The author tries to give a description of the stages through which Islam has developed and of the main agents that have brought about this development. Also the author attempts to give an account of the reactions of the Christian missionaries, to examine the factors which influenced their attitudes and approaches to Islam and to show how this response has itself influenced the course of the history of Islam in Malawi.
