This chapter constitutes a survey of the activist strand within al-Āqḥiṣārī’s writing, particularly the demand he placed on the Muslim faithful to actively engage in enjoining good and forbidding evil. There is also an assessment of the broader implications of the research findings, including a discussion on al-Āqḥiṣārī’s influence beyond the Ottoman lands.

Keywords:   Aḥmad al-Rūmī al-Āqḥiṣārī, Neo-Sufism, enjoining good, forbidding evil, Wahhābī/Wahhābism, Islamic revivalism, al-Ṭarīqat al-Muḥammadiyya
