Islamic Groups and Their World-Views and Identities: Neo-Traditional Salafis and Progressive Muslims
Arab Law Quarterly (2009)
Abstract

Tis paper presents a snap-shot discussion on the origins and the world-views behind two global contemporary movements among Muslims, namely Neo-Traditional Salafis and Progressive Muslims. It endeavours to historically situate and position them in relation to the cumulative Islamic historical harvest and delineate their approach to modernity. Addition-ally the paper briefly examines the concept of the role and the function of women within these respective world-views. Finally, it analyses the implications of the underlying ideology of these movements on the relationship between Muslim and non-Muslims in both Isl-amicate and non-Islamicate societies.
