Islamic Modernism and Islamism were two new streams of Islamic thought which emerged after the decline of European colonialism. Both of these movements had well defined and different visions. In the 1800s, new Western influence was widespread throughout the Islamic World. The Ottoman Empire faced a long decline characterized by financial problems by Western foreign that powers took advantage of to manipulate the decaying empire. The Wahhabi Movement and Egyptian independence marked the beginning of new reform as the Islamic world braced itself for the twentieth century.
Even in modern times, Islamisation is still on the rise. Due to the power Islam potentially holds, it is important to understand the relationship between Islam and politics. As Indonesia is home to the largest Muslim population in the world, it would be suitable for use as a key example. In the case of Indonesia, the introduction of Islam can be divided into three phases; from 622 to 1100, as a product of commercial contact with maritime regions of the Indian Ocean through trade that dates back to before the Islamic period; from 1100 to 1500, where the widespread of Islam was focused more on the spiritual belief rather than rituals. In the last phase, which extends from 1500 to current times, Islam continues to influence the culture and literature in Indonesia.
Most Malays practice Islam. The Constitution of Malaysia formally proclaims the state to be secular and guarantees "every person the freedom to practice his or her religion in peace and harmony." At the same time, the document also recognizes Islam as the "religion of the Federation," defines Malays as Muslims, and limits the "propagation" of other faiths. Sunni Muslims are free to practice their religious beliefs with few limitations,
Metz states that poorer communities survive on communal support and unity which he then sees as a factor in defining Ubuntu. But this account of Ubuntu is vague and isolates Ubuntu as something which only the poor can identify with instead of a principle which the masses can identify with. In order to find clarification Metz looks to Tutu and his definition of Ubuntu which states that collective unity is most important and any action which threatens this unity should be avoided and prevented. Matters and actions which can be seen as selfish threaten this unity and the good of the community. This reinforces the idea that Ubuntu is focused on the individual’s relationship with the collective rather than only the individual.
Migration was established by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) when he twice ordered his companions to migrate to Abyssinia in order to preserve their faith when the unbelievers in Mecca began torturing them severely. Migration of Islam begins with the premise that one of the defining events in the history of Islam came in the year 622, when the first Muslims migrated from Mecca to Medina. In the modern world, it is undeniable that the United States is host to more immigrants than any other nation, especially for Muslim migrants. This happens because the immigrants chose to come for various reasons, such as to live in freedom, to practice their religion freely, to escape poverty or oppression, and to make better lives for themselves and their children. However, there are many challenges that faced by Muslim who living in the United States.
In 2011, demonstrations took place in the capital, calling for political reforms, and job creation. Despite increased participation in education and employment in comparison to some other countries in the region, Oman’s patriarchal culture and conservative religious norms serve to limit women’s rights and opportunities, leading to de facto and de jure discrimination against women in all areas of life. In addition, many women in Oman remain ignorant of what legal protection they are entitled to receive. That said, in recent years, women have begun to play a more prominent role in public life, including in the political sphere and in decision-making
The plurality of the population and the contrast of the economic status being distributed within the ethnic segregation, and established the fundamental underlying basis, then shaped the political interactions of Malaysia as what we can see in the current situation (Noraini M Noor 2007). Barisan Nasional (National Front, thereupon BN) is the major political party in Malaysia as the successor to the Alliance, comprises by United Malays National Organisation (Umno), followed by Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA), Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC), and some other communal political parties. Umno, the biggest dominant partner in the BN coalition was formed to
Esposito and John O. Voll and “Identity, Immigration, and Liberal Democracy” by Francis Fukuyama. Fukuyama (2006) provides a radicalized view of fundamentalist ideology as being a dominant them in the “modern” Islamic world. This radicalization of Islam is seen as a war against the democratic principles of western society, which have shifted many Muslim’s away from democratic forms of governance. In contrast to this form of radical identity politics, Esposito and Voll (2001) argue that the Quran and other modern Islamic scholars rarely implement radical forms of Islam in the 21st century. In similar ways, Fukuyama (2006) and Esposito and Voll (2001) agree that radical fundamentalism is not part of a traditional view of governance, since a majority of Muslim people often practices a dynamic blend of democratic and Islamic governance.
