Recensies en Artikelen

"This is an excellent, original study of an important transnational Islamic movement, based on a long-term acquaintance with the movement and a considerable period of participating observation in Indonesia, Malaysia and South Thailand. The existing authoritative literature on the Tablighi Jama’at is rather limited: besides the standard work by M. Khalid Masud, the major contributions were made by Barbara Metcalf, Dietrich Reetz, and Yoginder Sikand, whose work focuses on the Tabligh in South Asia. There is now a rapidly growing literature on the Tabligh in other parts in the world, but this study by Farish Noor stands out as unique in its scope and depth. No one else has ever carried out extensive fieldwork and been able to study the movement from within as he does in this book. For this reason, this study represents a major step ahead in our understanding of the Tabligh." -- Martin van Bruinessen, Chair for the Comparative Study of Contemporary Muslim Societies, Utrecht University

"Farish Ahmad Noor is an extraordinary thinker: cosmopolitan, Asian, Muslim, humanist, truth-teller. Here we get him at his best, looking at the rise and spread of one of the most important missionary Muslim organizations, the Tablighis. Highly recommended!" -- Omid Safi, Professor of religious studies and Islamic studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"This is a truly impressive piece of work that will appeal to a wide audience and will be the definitive work on this complicated subject for a very long time." -- Abdullah Drury, University of Waikato, New Zealand

Islam on the Move

The Tablighi Jama'at in Southeast Asia

Dit uitgebreide onderzoek naar de opkomst van de Tablighi Jama’at plaatst deze massale islamitische missiebeweging in het grotere perspectief van de wereldwijde ontwikkelingen binnen de moslimgemeenschap. Noor vergelijkt het spirituele kader van de beweging met de opvattingen van de politieke en religieuze autoriteiten in de landen van herkomst van de aanhangers, en met de westerse ‘securocratische’ benadering.
