Abstract

In recent new Islamic interpretations of the world order as expressed, for instance, in the concept of (‘The World of Preaching the Message’) Muslim minorities are to become full citizens of non-Muslim societies. This global view of the world as one, has lead to the appearance of a whole new branch of Islamic jurisprudence called the ‘Religious Jurispridence of Minorities’ (). Its purpose is to reinterpret Islamic principles in a situation in which Muslims are living in a minority position. Accurate understanding of the responses () that shape this jurisprudence is necessary to avoid many misunderstandings with regard to Muslims living in non-Islamic countries. In addition, this article argues that research in this field will allow following the developments of the interpretation of religious norms and rules in socalled ‘Muslim’ countries. will influence Islam at large.
