The articles in this special volume of the Journal for Islamic Studies emerged from a conference organized at the University of Cape Town in 2011 on "Islamic Reform and Public Life in Africa." Three central themes were discussed at this meeting: reform (tajdīd), religious leaders and education. With a particular focus on reform, these essays show the significance and impact of these themes in African contexts.
