Islamic reform in twentieth-century Africa
Loimeier, Roman, author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, [2016]
Based on twelve case studies (Senegal, Mali, Nigeria, Niger, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zanzibar and the Comoros), this book looks at patterns and peculiarities of different traditions of Islamic reform. Considering both Sufi- and Salafi-oriented movements in their respective historical contexts, it stresses the importance of the local context to explain the different trajectories of development. The book studies the social, religious and political impact of these reform movements in both historical and contemporary times and asks why some have become successful as popular mass movements, while others failed to attract substantial audiences. It also considers jihad-minded movements in contemporary Mali, northern Nigeria and Somalia and looks at modes of transnational entanglement of movements of reform. Against the background of a general inquiry into what constitutes 'reform', the text responds to the question of what 'reform' actually means for Muslims in contemporary Africa.

Zaman, Muhammad Qasim
Oxford : Oneworld, 2008
"Ashraf 'Ali Thanawi (1863-1943) was one of the most prominent religious scholars in Islamic history. Author of over a thousand books on different aspects of Islam, his work sought to defend the Islamic scholarly tradition and to articulate its authority in an age of momentous religious and political change. In this authoritative biography, Muhammad Qasim Zaman offers a comprehensive and highly accessible account of Thanawi's multifaceted career and thought, whilst also providing a valuable introduction to Islam in modern South Asia."--Jacket.

Humayun Ansari -- Marmaduke Pickthall and the British Muslim convert community / Jamie Gilham -- Abdullah Quilliam (Henri de Leon) and Marmaduke Pickthall: agreements and disagreements between two prominent Muslims in the London and woking communities / Ron Geaves -- Pickthall's anti-Ottoman dissent: the politics of religious conversion / Mohammad Siddique Seddon -- Pickthall's Islamic politics / M.A. Sherif -- Pickthall, Ottomanism, and modern Turkey / Geoffrey P.

This new volume of essays marks eighty years since the death of Marmaduke Pickthall. His various roles as translator of the Qur'an, traveller to the Near East, political journalist writing on behalf of Muslim Turkey, and creator of the Muslim novel are discussed. In later life Pickthall became a prominent member of the British Muslim community in London and Woking, co-worker with Muslims in the Indian subcontinent, supporter of the Khilafat movement, and editor of the journal 'Islamic Culture' under the patronage of the Nizam of Hyderabad. 'Marmaduke Pickthall: Islam and the Modern World' makes an important contribution to the field of Muslims in Europe in the first half of the twentieth century.
