Nationalism and Islam

Source:
The Oxford Dictionary of Islam What is This? Covers the religious, political, and social spheres of global Islam in the modern world

    Nationalism and Islam

    As premodern socioeconomic systems disintegrated and modern conditions developed, so did nationalism, the tendency to organize politically with people in one's homeland regardless of religion, social class, etc. As religious groups participated in the nationalist movements from the Maghreb and Egypt to India and Indonesia, Islam was often an integral part of nationalist discourse. It continues to be a major component of many independent Muslim nations' ideologies.
