In November of 1999, Nigerians took to the streets demanding the re-implementation of shari'ah law in their country. Two years later, many Nigerians supported the death sentence by stoning of a peasant woman for alleged sexual misconduct. Public outcry in the West was met with assurances to the Western public: stoning is not a part of Islam; stoning happens "only in Africa"; reports of stoning are exaggerated by Western sensationalism. However, none of these statements are true. Shari'ah on Trial goes beyond journalistic headlines and liberal pieties to give a powerful account of how Northern Nigerians reached a point of such desperation that they demanded the return of the strictest possible shari'ah law. Sarah Eltantawi analyzes changing conceptions of Islamic theology and practice as well as Muslim and British interactions dating back to the colonial period to explain the resurgence of shari'ah, with implications for Muslim-majority countries around the world.

What is Sufism? Contemporary views vary tremendously, even among Sufis themselves. Contemporary Sufism: Piety, Politics, and Popular Culture brings to light the religious frameworks that shape the views of Sufism’s friends, adversaries, admirers, and detractors and, in the process, helps readers better understand the diversity of contemporary Sufism, the pressures and cultural openings to which it responds, and the many divergent opinions about contemporary Sufism’s relationship to Islam. The three main themes: piety, politics, and popular culture are explored in relation to the Islamic and Western contexts that shape them, as well as to the historical conditions that frame contemporary debates. This book is split into three parts: • Sufism and anti-Sufism in contemporary contexts; • Contemporary Sufism in the West: Poetic influences and popular manifestations; • Gendering Sufism: Tradition and transformation. This book will fascinate anyone interested in the challenges of contemporary Sufism as well as its relationship to Islam, gender, and the West. It offers an ideal starting point from which undergraduate and postgraduate students, teachers and lecturers can explore Sufism today.

English summary: Only a case of terminal colitis saved the Qadi saraf al-Din from removal from office and the Sultan's punishment in 1397. Today, the judge's records form the core of the 900 Haram documents found in Jerusalem forty years ago. In his study, Christian Muller analyzes this unique collection from a diplomatic, legal and socio-historical perspective. For the first time, it is possible to meticulously reconstruct the operations of a Qadi court based on original documents, ranging from revisions of written witness reports and the individual steps of a case to the process of reaching a verdict and the use of authenticated documents in courts in other cities. Individual records and related files provide surprising insights into legal relationships and the lives of the urban and rural population, tradesmen, scholars and emirs at that time. German description: Nur eine todliche Darmkolitis bewahrte den Kadi saraf al-Din im Jahre 1397 vor Bestrafung und Amtsenthebung durch den Sultan. Heute bilden die Akten dieses Richters den Grossteil der vor vierzig Jahren in Jerusalem entdeckten 900 Haram-Urkunden. Christian Mullers Studie untersucht diesen aussergewohnlichen Korpus unter diplomatischen, rechtspraktischen und sozialhistorischen Gesichtspunkten. Erstmals lasst sich die Arbeitsweise eines Kadigerichts anhand von Originalurkunden detailliert rekonstruieren: von der Redaktion schriftlicher Zeugenurkunden uber die mundlichen Verfahrensschritte bis zur Urteilsfindung und der Verwendung beglaubigter Urkunden vor Gerichten anderer Stadte. Einzelne Urkunden und inhaltlich verbundene Aktengruppen bieten ungeahnte Einblicke in die Rechtsverhaltnisse und Lebenswelten der damaligen Stadt- und Landbewohner, Gelehrte, Handler oder Emire.

This wide-ranging volume focuses on changes in language and gender in ten different national sites as a result of globalization. The papers draw on a variety of sociolinguistic methodologies to consider workplaces, schools, media discourse, beauty pageants, musical stars, and marriages in which 'modern' and 'traditional', 'local' and 'global' identities are constructed and contested.

September 11, 2001 is now etched into the collective world consciousness as a water-shed in the modern history of relationship between the world civilizations. These civilizations are essentially rooted in religious faiths that are largely ignorant of each other and consequently mutually hostile. Hopefully, not too late, the world has woken up to this awesome reality. This work started by the author some years ago before September 11, 2001 is appearing at a most auspicious time, when Nigeria indeed, is like the world-stage in microcosm where the contradictions between faith and praxis in the relationship between these world religions are played out. Using Nigeria as a case-study the author painstakingly analyses the commonly shared areas of faith between Islam and the Christian Faith and carefully scrutinizes the background, motives and characteristics of the friction points between the two religions. The result of his research challenges both religions by exposing how much they have in common to co-exist peacefully and assure humanity that peace is inexorably bound up with religion. It also underscores the Catholic Social Teaching with its principles, values and norms for the foundation of a sound social Order and structure of social life. Contents: Background to Christian-Islamic Tension--Islamic Religion and its Socio-economic and Political Aspirations in Nigeria--Christian Incursion in Nigeria: its Social and Political Implications--Christian-Islamic Tension in Nigeria--The Social Teaching of the Church: Areas of Application--Religious Co-existence in a Pluralistic Nigeria.
