Description

In its attempt to squash the influence of animism and pantheism or polytheism and to promote the idea of the One and Only Absolute God, Islam has come up against a tendency within itself to incorporate certain local religious traditions and practices. This book shares that combination of universality and local particularity, exploring this paradox and the contradictory tendencies contained in it.show more

Review quote

'This volume has succeeded in capturing a sense of the diversity of Islam while also underlining a common core need, namely, the desire by the faithful to express their worship of God in tangible, coherent means.' - Centre for Islamic Studies Newslettershow more
