Brought to us by the Ethiopian scholar Shaykh Muḥammad Amān al-Jāmi, Islām in Africa Throughout History chronicles three significant phases of Islām in Africa which helped shape the world. This classic manuscript begins with the courageous stance of the Abyssinian king an-Najāshi, which shook Heraclius of Rome, defied the tribes of Makkah while influencing the kings of Oman, and even softened the hearts of Prophet Muḥammad’s staunchest adversaries.
The second part recounts two waves of da’wah in Africa: the Arab merchants and the Ṣūfis, both of which left a lasting imprint upon the continent.
The third part details the scholars who led the revival of the Salafi da’wah in Africa and advises the students of knowledge about the future of Islām in Africa.

This book contains valuable information about An Najaashee of Abyssinia that you don't find in other English translations of other history books.
Also the book briefly explains which Salafee scholars affected the Salafee Da'wah in West Africa and how the Sufism that was spread in Africa made it easier for Communism to affect the continent.
I hope more books in greater detail on this topic will be translated in the future.
