Mustafa Briggs is a graduate of Arabic and International Relations from the University of Westminster whose dissertation focused on Arabic Literature and Literacy in West Africa. Mustafa started an MA in Translation at SOAS, University of London with a specialization in Arabic and Islamic Texts, before going onto al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt where he is currently doing another degree in Islamic Studies and Arabic.Mustafa rose to international acclaim for his ‘Beyond Bilal: Black History in Islam’ lecture series which saw him explore and uncover the deep routed relationship between Islam and Black History; and the legacy of contemporary African Islamic Scholarship and its role in the International Relations of the Muslim World as well as the vital role Female Scholarship plays in the West African Islamic Tradition, which he presented at over 30 Universities across 3 continents, including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard and Yale.Beyond Bilal was then turned into a book, which became an amazon best seller within the first month of its release and lead to an American and European book tour, during which Mustafa was hosted and interviewed by various scholars at various Academic and Islamic institutions such as Imam Omar Sulaiman of Yaqeen Institute, Shaykh Suhaib Webb of Islamic Centre of New York University, and Professor Shadaab Rahemtulla of Edinburgh University, where the book is currently being studied as part of the educational curriculum.
