Largely, I am doing Islam in Africa,  focusing on Islamic Intellectual history of West Africa, and specifically interested in Arabic-oriented manuscripts of Islamic Rational sciences, namely: Logic and Islamic Theology from 16th to 18th centuries. My motivations come from the theory of decentralization of epistemology and deconstructions of intellectuality of African history. Previously,  I earned a first degree of Islamic theology and Philosophy from al-Azahr University, Cairo 2010 and a Master of Theology from University of Malaya Malaysia, 2017. I have been a junior academic staff at the Islamic studies department of Bauchi State University, Gadau Nigeria since 2012. I am now working with Professor Mamadou Diouf and Professor Soulaymane Bachir Diagne as supervisors.
