Languages of publication
„Der Spiegel" is one of the most influential weekly magazines of German spoken countries. It has an edition of over one million copies. About seven million people read it weekly, while the Internet edition of „Der Spiegel" („Spiegel Online") is visited over 60 million times a month. Articles, which are published in „Der Spiegel", concern different issues of the modern society: policy, economy, science, culture and religion. The following article is a reference to the situation of Islam in the modern Africa in the light of publications from „Der Spiegel" which were published from 2000 to 2003. It is a conscious choice. The event of the 11th September 2001 makes here some kind of a time axis. The Spiegel journalists, who write on Africa, concentrate mainly on political, economic and social questions while the religious reality of the African Islam they consider superficial. It is worth mentioning, that the African Islam is not presented in the white-black way. They show the present situation in Africa under the influence of different factors among which the tribal (clan) structure is one of the most important. The western society often underestimates this social situation in Africa.
