Abstract

Dans la période d'extraordinaire effervescence sociale et intellectuelle qu'a été, en Islam, le second siècle de l'Hégire, se détache, quelque peu en marge - et de façon très informelle -, une catégorie particulière de prétendus ""mal-pensants"", étrangement affublés du sobriquet de zanādiqa, pluriel de zindīq. La question des zanādiqa en pays d'Islam avait déjà fait, comme le rappelle Chokr, l'objet d'un certain nombre de travaux, dont notamment - le tout premier - l'article, justement célèbre...

Abstract

“One Word – Yak Kaleme” is one of the first treatises in the Middle East to demonstrate that Islam is compatible with modern western forms of government, and specifically that sharia principles can be incorporated in a codified law comparable to that found in Europe. Unlike many fellow Oriental travellers, the author observed that European dominance is not derived from a few technological advances, but primarily from the organization of society. In “One Word”, the author argues that the principles underlying constitutional government can be found in Islamic sources. “One Word” is a significant text during the Iranian Constitutional Revolution of 1906, but its message is relevant today.

Abstract

Loin des clichés médiatiques entretenant l'image d'un islam légaliste et belliqueux, le mysticisme islamique, véritable religion de l'amour et du désir pratiquée par des fidèles en quête du divin, se caractérise par une grande diversité de cultes. C'est à un voyage au cœur des expressions féminines de cette forme religieuse dans l'Algérie des années quatre-vingt que nous convie Sossie Andezian avec le présent ouvrage. Dans un style original alliant sensibilité émotionnelle et rigueur scientif...

Abstract

The Struggle of the Shi‘is in Indonesia is a pioneering work. It is the first comprehensive scholarly examination in English of the development of Shiism in Indonesia. It focuses primarily on the important period between 1979 and 2004 – a period of nearly a quarter of a century that saw the notable dissemination of Shi’i ideas and a considerable expansion of the number of Shi’i adherents in Indonesia. Since Islam in Indonesia is overwhelmingly Sunni, this development of Shiism in a predominantly Sunni context is a remarkable phenomenon that calls for careful, critical investigation. There is also an important examination of the principal ideas underlying the Madhab Ahl al-Bayt, the Imamate and Imam Madhi, Ja‘fari jurisprudence and ritual piety. Appropriately, in his discussion, Zulkifli provides a succinct outline of contrasts with Sunni ideas and practice. He also examines the publishing efforts that underpinned the dissemination of Shi’i ideas and the founding of IJABI (Ikatan Jamaah Ahlul Bait Indonesia) in July 2000 for the propagation of Ahl al-Bayt teachings. Given the Indonesian context, Zulkifli is also concerned with Sunni reactions to these Shi’i developments – a story that continues to unfold to the present. This book as a work of great value and significance for the continuing understanding of the richness and complexity of Indonesian Islam.

Abstract

Théologien et jurisconsulte ḥanbalite, Ibn ‘Aqīl a vécu à Bagdad au Ve/XIe siècle. Marquée par le triomphe des salǧūqides sur les buwaihides, les travaux d’al-Ġazzālī et l’essor du mouvement universitaire, cette période est celle de la restauration du sunnisme au détriment du šī’isme. Réaffirmant l’origine divine du droit et prônant un retour aux sources religieuses premières que sont le Coran et la sunna, l’école ḥanbalite, qui s’organise et se développe à cette époque, s’impose comme une de...

Abstract

This volume offers a fascinating case study of the Sayyid community of Cikoang in South Sulawesi – in particular, an examination of the role of the descendants of Sayyid Jalaluddin al-‘Aidid, a Hadhrami merchant-teacher of great authority and charisma who is said to have initially settled in Gowa in the 17th century. It is of particular interest because the migration of Sayydid Jalaluddin occurred well before the major Hadhrami diaspora to Southeast Asia in the mid-19th century. Of particular interest is the way Sayyid Jalaluddin and his descendants became integrated within the Makassar community. Sayyid Jalaluddin’s legacy to the Cikoang community is the Tarekat Bahr ul-Nur, whose mystic teachings expound the creation of the world from the ‘Nur Muhammad’. A consequence of this teaching is an enormous emphasis on the celebration of Maudu’ (Maulid or the Birth of the Prophet) as expressed in the local assertion: ‘My existence on this earth is for nothing but Maudu’.’ Every year this prompts the Cikoang community to hold one of the most elaborate and colourful Maulid celebrations in Indonesia. This study was originally submitted as an MA thesis at ANU in 1998, but soon became recognised as an important contribution to Hadhrami studies. Its author, M. Adlin Sila, has since gone on to complete his PhD at ANU, Being Muslim in Bima of Sumbawa, Indonesia: Practice, Politics and Cultural Diversity. This study of Bima and its religious history establishes him as a major researcher on the diverse traditions of Islam in eastern Indonesia.

Abstract

This book provides the first overview of the history and development of Islam in Afghanistan. Written by leading international experts, chapters cover every era from the conversion of Afghanistan through the medieval period to the present day. Based on primary sources in Arabic, Persian, Pashto, Uzbek, and Urdu, its depth of coverage is unrivalled in providing a developmental picture of Afghanistan’s Islam, including such issues as the rise of Sufism, women’s religiosity, state religious policies, and transnational Islamism. Looking beyond the unifying rhetoric of theology, the book reveals the disparate and contested forms of Afghanistan’s Islam.

Abstract

Publié au lendemain de la seconde guerre mondiale et réédité dans la présente collection, Au seuil de la vie marocaine est un petit ouvrage qui reprend des articles de Louis Brunot, écrits entre les années vingt et trente. L’auteur, avec clarté et cohérence, y présente la société marocaine, ses croyances et ses règles de politesse, telles que pouvait les concevoir un haut fonctionnaire du Protectorat. Il fait preuve d’un indéniable culturalisme en considérant la subjectivité des Marocains com...
