This book explores many key aspects of the globalisation process, discussing how Muslim countries are coping with globalisation, as well as considering how the West is responding to Islam.

Description : Globalization and postmodernism are on the lips of scholars in the West or East. It is argued that the debate on globalization as a paradigm is in many ways also the successor to the debates on modernity and postmodernity. This book has certainly established globalization as a central thematic in social theory and in the understanding of socio-cultural change. The present conditions of the Muslim world and their role are closely discussed in this book. Globalization is a reality now. Stenberg in his book 'The Making of a Global Islam' suggests, viewing Islam as a 'social product' and an 'ongoing discourse, concerned with authority', because those who are active in the new discourse are mostly not trained religious expertsa. Their response to the new kind of 'free-floating' intellectuals can be quite critical, as in the case of Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, himself a 'global mufti. The new global Islam shapes a different understanding of the Muslim world, which is less a geographical entity and more a world of ideas, thoughts and practice. Thus globalization acts as a condition for these new developments within Islam and the Muslim world.

Description : Lately, Islam has been enduring considerable pressure and criticism for its violent nature and its involvement with anti-social activities, such as terrorism, assassinations, suicide bombings, etc. Some evidence of the growing awareness of Islam and its efforts of peaceful co-existence has come to light in the form of increased interest in reading history and about the past events. This awareness is not sufficient. The authors in their book, Globalization of Knowledge, have endeavoured to dispel this undue criticism. In this treatise, the authors have undertaken to illustrate Islam and its efforts for creating and maintaining a peaceful and harmonious global village. They have also brought to the attention of the readers contributions of the Islamic Civilization to human knowledge, particularly the preservation and further advancements in philosophy, sciences, astronomy and other social disciplines. The book is an easy reading and full of information. Readers can learn vicariously from the Islamic contributions to human knowledge.

Description : The thesis titled, "Globalization-its implications, fluctuations and repercussions for the Muslim Ummah" was undertaken to resolve a key issue in the Muslim World today which is the domination of one global economy and its repercussions specified for the Muslim Ummah. The scope of the research includes the negative aftermath of Globalization on the Muslim Economies in general and the Ummah at large. However the scope does not include the precise economic scenario of globalization in the Muslim World (as the thesis is bound to prove the ill-effects of globalization) on the Muslim society. The research methodology comprised of adaptation, surveys, criticism and personalized opinion. The research and data was analyzed by using telephone interviews, internet and Books. Supporting illustrations have been added to facilitate understanding of the research data.The main findings of the research are Globalization is not restricted to the economy; Terrorism exists because of the existence of globalization; Globalization is a means of acquiring' one world order'. The researcher understands that there could be subsequent reasons for those findings. One, misrepresentation of facts relating to globalization; two, meager understanding based on one sided application; three, misinterpretation of the one world order. Nevertheless, Globalization acts as a nuisance for the Muslim Ummah; if installed according to Islam, globalization can act as a driving force for unison of one global community; World economies dominated by the Capitalistic are the edifice of globalization. The researcher has undertaken a sincere effort in understanding globalization and hopes that the findings and suggestions in the thesis will be beneficial to the Muslims in general and the entire human race at large.

Description : This book examines the cultural responses of Muslims to the transformations, contradictions and challenges confronting contemporary Islam as it moves towards the twenty-first century. The diffusion of populations, the globalization of culture and the forces of postmodernity have shaken the world like never before. These developments have generated a debate among Muslims which, as the contributors to this volume show, will have far-reaching consequences not just for the Muslim world, but for relations between Islam and the West more generally.

Description : A unique focus on the relationship between religion and political culture in the Third World using a comparative and thematic approach. Specific issues of religion-politics interaction in the Third World in recent times include: the rise of Islamic fundamentalist groups throughout the Middle East and other parts of the Muslim world; the political effects of the decline of Catholicism and the rapid growth of Protestant evangelical sects in Latin America; communal conflict between Hindu nationalist groups, and the politicisation of Buddhism in South East Asia. The common effect of such developments is to challenge existing forms of relationship between states and societies with religion used as a political resource.

Description : This book is an accessible and comprehensive account of political Islam in the twenty-first century. Drawing on insights from comparative politics and Islamic studies, it explains the complex interaction between Islam, society, the state, and processes of globalization. The book demonstrates that political Islam, far from being a monolithic phenomenon, varies considerably from country to country depending on its position in relation to society, the state, and the broader political environment. The book provides a portrait of Islam and politics through a combination of detailed case studies and country overviews that span the globe from the Middle East to Central and South Asia, Southeast Asia and Europe and North America—as well as a detailed account of the global jihadist movement. Engaging the debate on "post-Islamism" and the aftermath of Arab Uprisings, the book also provides a roadmap of possible futures for Islam and politics. Subjects covered include: • history of Islam and politics and an overview of key concepts • how political Islam interacts with the nation-state and the global economy • a wide variety of global case studies • profiles of key movements and individuals Fully illustrated throughout, featuring maps, a glossary and suggestions for further reading, this is the ideal introduction to the crucial role of political Islam in the contemporary world.

Description : This is the first empirical study to explore the impact of globalisation upon the construction of Muslim identity in the West, in particular in Britain. Drawing on a number of theoretical models, the book examines the way in which globalisation generates paradoxically two parallel processes: homogenisation and heterogenisation. The former process is chiefly characterised by increasing westernisation, while the latter is observable in the different forms that Islamic 'resistance' has taken in Muslim societies worldwide. By examining second generation young adults born in the UK or migrant Muslim parents and the extent to which the western 'global cultural industry' has influenced their identity the study suggests that through the process of heterogenisation cultural forms have become diversified and fragmented, and identity construction diffused.

Description : Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject Sociology - Religion, grade: 1,7, University of Applied Sciences Fulda, language: English, abstract: Constructing an identity today is complicated by the nature of our postmodern world we live in but more significant than ever. For most people it is very important to identify oneself with at least one aspect like nationality, ethnicity or religion. Identity could determine the position which one has in society, depending on the country one live in. Finding one's identity can be very challenging. Many people struggle with the notion of their identity, especially minority groups like Muslims living in the "Secular World" asking themselves "Who am I?" Moreover the globalization led to significant changes in the Islamic world and within an Identity crisis. In this paper I will focus on the following questions: What is the link between Islam and identity? What exactly is a Muslim Identity? As Muslims are coming from different countries, ethnics and different groups (Sunnis, Shiites and so on) can we talk about Muslims as a collective group or is there a Global Muslim Identity? And when how is this type of identity created?

Description : Establishing the link between Saudi political ideology and the proliferation of Wahhabi missions around the world, this fascinating tour de force includes a rigorous intellectual history of Muslim radicalism, from the Kharijite movement in early caliphal history through Wahhabism and Salafism to their violent synthesis in al-Qaeda. While increasingly suspicious of official Saudi politics, local hybrids of Wahhabism and neo-Salafism across the Middle East, Central Asia, South Asia, and Southeast Asia show a genealogical link between theology and terror. Among contemporary worldviews, Muslim radicalism poses the number-one threat to international security today. Saudi State, Wahhabi World: The Globalization of Muslim Radicalism analyses the ideas and structures that have sustained and nourished Islam's radical thinkers and actors. It finds that radical Islam is unavoidably linked to the religious political life of Saudi Arabia, whether one examines ideology or the institutions and organizations that ensure the spread of Islamic fundamentalism. Over the past two decades, Naveed S. Sheikh explains, Wahhabism has reengineered the traditional theological norms of Islam so that we are left with a schismatic, and ultimately uncontrollable, form of religious anarchism. Wahhabism is sustained by a transnational regime of agents and organizations acting as twin conduits for funds and views-the former predominantly Saudi, the latter principally Wahhabic. In the process of manipulating the intellectual and political history of Islam, this book argues, the Kingdom has now itself become a target of the genie it let loose.

Description : In an increasingly globalized world, there are new economic, strategic, cultural, and political forces at work. The Political Psychology of Globalization: Muslims in the West explores how these shifts and shocks have influenced the way in which Muslim minorities in western countries form their identities as political actors. Catarina Kinnvall and Paul Nesbitt-Larking uncover three identity strategies adopted by Muslims in the West: retreatism, essentialism, and engagement. Six western countries - Canada, Denmark, France, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom - serve as places for exploration of the emergence of these Muslim political identities. These countries are discussed in light of their colonial histories, patterns of immigration, and citizenship regimes. Although retreatism, essentialism, and engagement occur in Muslim citizens of each of the six western nations discussed in this book, the countries that are best able to balance individual and community rights are most successful in promoting the politics of engagement. In contrast, regimes that focus on anti-terrorist legislation and discourses, and support majority political cultures that are exclusionary, also promote retreatism and essentialist identity strategies in both minority and majority communities. The authors discuss the importance of a climate of engagement that is based on recognition, dialogue, deep multiculturalism, a new global and "cosmopolitical" consciousness, and a sense of political identity that transcends national boundaries and regimes.

Description : “A very persuasive argument for the best way to counter jihadism” (The Washington Post) from the bestselling author of Zealot and host of Believer The wars in the Middle East have become religious wars in which God is believed to be directly engaged on behalf of one side against the other. The hijackers who attacked America on September 11, 2001, thought they were fighting in the name of God. According to award-winning writer and scholar of religions Reza Aslan, the United States, by infusing the War on Terror with its own religiously polarizing rhetoric, is fighting a similar war—a war that can’t be won. Beyond Fundamentalism is both an in-depth study of the ideology fueling militants throughout the Muslim world and an exploration of religious violence in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. At a time when religion and politics increasingly share the same vocabulary and function in the same sphere, Aslan writes that we must strip the conflicts of our world of their religious connotations and address the earthly grievances that always lie at its root. How do you win a religious war? By refusing to fight in one. Featuring new content and updated analysis • Originally published as How to Win a Cosmic War “[A] thoughtful analysis of America’s War on Terror.” —The New Yorker “Offers a very persuasive argument for the best way to counter jihadism.”—The Washington Post “[Reza] Aslan dissects a complex subject (terrorism and globalization) and distills it with a mix of narrative writing, personal anecdotes, reportage and historical analysis.”—San Francisco Chronicle “Aslan is not only a perspicuous, thoughtful interpreter of the Muslim world but also a subtle psychologist of the call to jihad.”—Los Angeles Times “[A] meaty analysis of the rise of Jihadism . . . dispels common misconceptions of the War on Terror age.”—San Jose Mercury News “It is Aslan’s great gift to see things clearly, and to say them clearly, and in this important new work he offers us a way forward. He is prescriptive and passionate, and his book will make you think.”—Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of American Lion

Description : This book presents an intellectual history of today’s Muslim world, surveying contemporary Muslim thinking in its various manifestations, addressing a variety of themes that impact on the lives of present-day Muslims. Focusing on the period from roughly the late 1960s to the first decade of the twenty-first century, the book is global in its approach and offers an overview of different strands of thought and trends in the development of new ideas, distinguishing between traditional, reactionary, and progressive approaches. It presents a variety of themes and issues including: The continuing relevance of the legacy of traditional Islamic learning as well as the use of reason; the centrality of the Qur’an; the spiritual concerns of contemporary Muslims; political thought regarding secularity, statehood, and governance; legal and ethical debates; related current issues like human rights, gender equality, and religious plurality; as well as globalization, ecology and the environment, bioethics, and life sciences. An alternative account of Islam and the Muslim world today, counterbalancing narratives that emphasise politics and confrontations with the West, this book is an essential resource for students and scholars of Islam.
