Exbition “Islam, Religion of Unity by Prayer: History of Islam and Religious Life in Western”

Islam has a large presence in North Africa and in numerous regions in sub-Saharan Africa. It is also widely practiced in the eastern and western regions of Ethiopia,situated in the northeast of sub-Saharan Africa and famous for its ancient Christianity. The Kingdom of Jimma, founded by the Oromo in the early 19th century, played an important role in the Islamization in western Ethiopia. ILCAA has obtained an Islamic prayer book which J.Borelli, a French explorer who visited Jimma region in the latter half of the 1880s, brought back from the kingdom. This exhibition focuses on the history of Islamization in western Ethiopia and religious life of Muslims in this region by exhibiting the above mentioned Islamic prayer book and other valuable books, explanation panels,photos, and movies.
