  • The earliest presence of Islam in Chad can be traced back to the legendary Uqba ibn Nafi, whose descendants can be found settled in the Lake Chad region to this day. By the time Arab migrants began arriving from the east in the fourteenth century in sizeable numbers, the creed was already well established. Instead of being the product of conquest or the imposition of political power, Islamization in Chad was gradual, the effect of the slow spread of Islamic civilization beyond its political frontiers{}. Today the majority of Chadians are Muslims. Approximately 48% are Sunni, 21% Shia and 4% Ahmadi while the majority of the rest do not associate themselves with a particular group.Chadian Muslims have retained and combined pre-Islamic with Islamic rituals and beliefs. Moreover, Islam in Chad was not particularly influenced by the great mystical movements of the Islamic Middle Ages or the fundamentalist upheavals that affected the faith in the Middle East, West Africa, and Sudan. Perhaps as a result of prolonged contact with West African Muslim traders and pilgrims, most Chadian Muslims identify with the Tijaniyya order, but the brotherhood has not served as a rallying point for unified action. Similarly, the Sanusiyya, a brotherhood founded in Libya in the mid-nineteenth century, enjoyed substantial economic and political influence in the Lake Chad Basin around 1900. Despite French fears of an Islamic revival movement led by "Sanusi fanatics," Chadian adherents, limited to the Awlad Sulayman Arabs and the Toubou of eastern Tibesti, have never been numerous.Higher Islamic education in Chad is nonexistent;[citation needed] thus, serious Islamic students and scholars must go abroad. Popular destinations include Khartoum and Cairo, where numerous Chadians attend Al Azhar.Chadian observance of the five pillars of the faith differs somewhat from the orthodox tradition. For example, public and communal prayer occurs more often than the prescribed one time each week but often does not take place in a mosque. Moreover, Chadian Muslims probably make the pilgrimage less often than, for example, their Hausa counterparts in northern Nigeria. As for the Ramadan fast, the most fervent Muslims in Chad refuse to swallow their saliva during the day, a particularly stern interpretation of the injunction against eating or drinking between sunrise and sunset.In the late of seventh century, Chad was not an easy place to enter because of its geography,and Muslim wars began to spread to West and South Africa. Spreading Islam in Chad was very slow because the Arab people who were spreading the religion could not enter there because of its geography. It is a rocky place that people cannot travel inside of. Chad is behind every other Muslim country in Africa. Because Chad is a Muslim country, and their maternal language is not Arabic caused them to lack the experience of understanding Qur'an. Most of them attend Islamic schools, and they still do not understand the meaning of the Qur'an they are reciting. Muslims in Chad lack the understanding of Qur'an which impacted many countries like the countries of Sudan and West Africa. It impacted Sudan and West Africa because it sped up the spread of Islam in Chad which was the main focus in other Muslim countries, and they made organizations which motivates people to spread Islam further. Since Islam relies on Qur'an Muslim people in chad should seek for Islamic schools to increase their knowledge in Qur'an.Comparing to other Muslim countries like Saudi Arabia which has reached development in their religion can be an example of Islam in Chad since it is not well developed yet.
