About the Book

The topic of Islamic resurgence has gained significance in view of the geo-political developments over the last century in the Muslim world. The varied interpretations of tajdid (revival) by the 'ulama and the Islamists have deeply shaped the discourse of Islamic resurgence. This work studies the interaction between Islamic resurgent movements and their impact on the shaping of an Islamic order, with the focus on Maulana Nadwi (1913-1999), the 'ulama, and Islamists and transmitters of tajdid (revival).

The volume examines the contributions of Maulana Sayyid Abul Hasan 'Ali Nadwi. to Islamic resurgence and his conception of an Islamic order, comparing his ideas with those of his contemporaries, Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi of Pakistan and Sayyid Qutb of Egypt. Beginning with a detailed historical analysis of Islamic resurgent movements, it deals with the sources of Islamic authenticity of an ideal past in relation to Islamic reformist thought. It takes up the historical figures and Islamic institutions that contributed to Maulana Nadwi's formulation of Islamic resurgence. Common themes in the writings of Maulana Nadwi and his contemporaries are examined, especially the theories of Jahiliyyah and Hakimiyyah.

The book is relevant in the context of Islamic resurgence in the present day especially with reference to globalisation. It will be useful to students and scholars of Islamic studies as well as general readers.

Islamic Resurgence: An Overview THE phenomenon of Islamic resurgence during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries spawned multiple levels of Islamic discourse in response to the entrenched influence of Western civilisation and culture. The political hegemony of the West in the form of colonialism was a precursor to intellectual challenges it posed in the Muslim world. Thus contemporary Islamic thought added new dimensions to Islamic resurgence in context of the islah (reform) and tajdid (revival) paradigm. The diverse backgrounds of Islamic scholars and movements contributing to Islamic resurgence provided a nexus for a traditionalist and Islamist understanding of these two concepts.

In view of the geo-political developments over the last century in the Muslim world, the rise of the Islamist group advocating a return to an Islam expressed by the salf-al-salih (earliest representatives of Islam) has assumed significance in understanding the nature and scope of Islamic resurgence. Across this spectrum have been the contributions of the 'ulama in their articulation of tajdid. The varied and often diverse interpretation of tajdid by 'ulama and Islamists are manifestations of their pioneering roles in shaping the discourse of the Islamic resurgence.
