9780700710584: Sufis and Anti-Sufis: The Defence, Rethinking and Rejection of Sufism in the Modern World (Curzon Sufi Series)

Despite its continuing appeal in the Muslim world, Sufism has faced challenges in the last 250 years. This volume assesses the evolution of anti-Sufism since the mid-18th century and Sufi strategies for survival. It also considers the efforts of a few significant Muslim intellectuals to contemplate a future for a mystical approach to Islam without traditional Sufism. Many studies of Islam in the modern period have focused on the attempts of Muslim modernists or fundamentalists to come to terms with Western modernity and Sufis have often been marginalized in the process.
