Abstract:The subject of the present study is the effect of Islam on the religious beliefs and practices of a Negro people. The group selected for this research consists of the inhabitants of Kano in Northern Nigeria with its surrounding rural districts (an important section of the Hausa speaking peoples of the Central Sudan. The field research was carried on in 1938/1939. Islamic influences had been at work a sufficient period for their effects to be judged; yet in the rural districts there remained a population which was still pagan and represented to a considerable degree the culture of the Hausa of this region prior to Moslem contact.
