Abstract:The articles in this special volume of the 'Journal for Islamic Studies' concentrate on three central themes: reform (tajdid), religious leaders and education. With a particular focus on reform, the articles show the significance and impact of these themes in African contexts. The articles emerged from a conference on 'Islamic reform and public life in Africa', organized at the University of Cape Town in 2011. Contributions: What is 'reform'? Approaches to a problematic term in African Muslim contexts (Roman Loimeier) - Sufism, education and politics in contemporary Morocco (Rachida Chih) - Islamic reform in colonial space: the jihad of Shaykh Boubacar Sawadogo and French Islamic policies in Burkina Faso, 1920-1946 (Ousman Murzik Kobo) - For the Saudi's kingdom or for the umma? Global?ulama? in the Dar al-?adith in Medina (Chanfi Ahmed) - Traditional Islam and pedagogical change in West Africa: the majlis and the madrasa in Medina-Baye, Senegal (Zachary Wright).
