The Islam practiced in Mali in the mid-1300s varied from that of North Africa and Arabia both in the way it was practiced (highly syncretic) and its pervasiveness in society (weak outside the cities). Looking at the Epic of Sundiata and the visit of Ibn Battuta together with Shillington and related material, were Islamic or non-Islamic cultural and social practices more important to the Empire of Mali in the 1300s, and why? Keep in mind that Mali’s level of syncretism means these two categories are somewhat fluid, so you will need to define them (or argue against the categories validity if you wish there’s a lot of room for argument). Our major source for proper Islamic practice is the rather uptight Ibn Battuta, and some non-Islamic elements so prominent in variations of the oral Epic of Sundiata were important to rule right through the era under study. Therefore you should consider Battuta’s evaluation of Islamic practice in Malian society (and its neighbors) as well as the qualities ascribed to rulership and society in Niane’s transcription and Kouyat’s film. Yes, you may hearken back to Wagadu and earlier Islamic expansion if useful.
