Peaceful Movements in the Muslim World

(p.229) 9 Peaceful Movements in the Muslim World
Religious Pluralism, Globalization, and World Politics

Thomas Michel, S. J.

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores peacebuilding resources in the Muslim tradition. Media attention has centered on the activities of a violent Muslim minority; larger Islamic movements, dedicated to the principle of nonviolence, have garnered much less of the spotlight. This chapter examines three such movements in detail—their historical origins, ethical commitments, and social and political practices. Two of the movements, centered around the teachings of Said Nursi and Fethullah Gülen, have emphasized the importance of education, dialogue, and service to the poor as imperatives in a modern, globalizing world. A third movement, the Asian Muslim Action Network, pools resources and expertise across a range of local and national partners in the region.

Keywords:   Islam, Said Nursi, Fethullah Gülen, education, dialogue, globalization, nonviolence
