Abstract:Festschrift in honour of Isaac Adejoju Ogunbiyi (1941- ), Professor of Arabic Language and Literature at Lagos State University, Nigeria, since 1984. Ogunbiyi, a Christian working in the field of Arabic and Islamic studies, is seen by Nigerian Muslims and non-Muslims alike as 'an unfamiliar guest in a familiar household', hence the title of the publication. The contributions, some in English and some in Arabic, are grouped in three parts: Islamic studies, Arabic studies and epigraphy. They include papers on Islamic revival in Africa, the place of religion in the Nigerian secondary school curriculum, the institution of zakah and its administration in Nigeria, Nigerian literature in Arabic, a comparative analysis of Kanem-Borno works and sources in language studies, and a literary history of Sudan.
