Abstract:Outlines the story of the Muslims who moved into the area now covered by the Brong-Ahafo region. Their story is one of participation in trade rather than of carrying Islam to the people with whom they traded. This trade was first in gold and to some extent in slaves to which kola was added in due course. By the time kola took pride of place in the north-bound trade, gold had probably ceased to have any significance as an item of trade. Notes.
