    Preaching islamic revival: Amr Khaled, mass media and social change in Egypt2015Book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Amr Khaled is an Egyptian Muslim activist and television preacher based in Egypt who encourages both social commitment and individual self-fulfilment. Chosen by Time Magazine as one of the world s 100 most influential people, his prominence in the Arabic-speaking world is unparalleled. During the Mubarak era, his message seemed for the most part apolitical, but after the events of January 2011, he started using more explicitly political language. Susanne Olsson examines the differences between Amr Khaled s pre-revolutionary and post-revolutionary messages and looking in-depth at how deals with the concepts of Islam and modernity. By examining issues such as Amr Khaled s use of mass media, his views on gender role and the nature of political and religious rule, Susanne Olsson offers a book which will appeal to those interested in the changes that Egypt has experienced over the last century.

    Proselytizing Islam - Problematizing Salafism2014In: The Muslim world, ISSN 0027-4909, E-ISSN 1478-1913, Vol. 104, no 1-2, p. 171-197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article discusses the contemporary European setting pertaining to Islamic interpretations, mainly so called Salafi Islam. The empirical material is based on publications by a Swedish group that conducts street da'wa, aiming to proselytize among non-Muslims. The ideology, as presented in official publications to be used for da'wa, is described and analyzed as part of a larger da'wa-movement with Salafi-inclinations in Europe. The group is not unique, but rather one example of many in Europe, at least concerning the activism advocated. The presentation of the group serves to reflect upon global influences and similarities among contemporary Islamic da'wa activism, as well as effects that the national context has on the choice of predominant themes addressed by the group as well as interpretative strategies used. The overarching aim with the article is to problematize the common usage of the concept Salafi among scholars of religion to describe and characterize contemporary Islamic groups of various kinds. The conclusion calls for a more nuanced approach concerning conceptualizations and the use of typologies in studying contemporary Islamic groups in a minority setting.

    Shia as Internal Others: A Salafi Rejection of the ‘Rejecters’2017In: Islam and Christian-Muslim Relations, ISSN 0959-6410, E-ISSN 1469-9311, Vol. 28, no 4, p. 409-430Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Conflict and polemic between Sunni Muslims and Shiites have a long history. In the contemporary era, this polemic has been accentuated by the conflictual situation in the Middle East, and it is also colouring the minority Muslim situation. This article is concerned with Islamic interpretations related to ‘othering’, taking as its main focus an analysis of publications on a Swedish Sunni website, ‘Maktabah Dâr-ul-Hadîth’, which has clear Salafi leanings. Reports show that Shiites currently feel threatened by Salafis in minority contexts and the material cited in this article ‘others’ Shiite Islam and Shiites (amongst others), creating a stereotypical image that may have the potential to influence sectarian violence in real life. Several of the texts on the website deal with theological issues concerning the alleged false beliefs of Shiites. However, the article does not focus on theological creed but rather on manhaj, the programme for action, that is, the behaviour towards Shiites that is recommended in various situations, such as at work, in greeting Shiites or being invited to a Shiite wedding, thus affecting everyday situations. The analysis looks into what kind of ‘othering’ is promoted and what effect this othering might have if put into practice.

    Swedish puritan salafism: a hijra within2012In: Comparative Islamic Studies, ISSN 1740-7125, E-ISSN 1743-1638, Vol. 8, no 1-2, p. 71-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article focuses a Swedish puritan Salafi group that advocates a clear stance against the immorality and impurity that they perceive the surrounding Swedish (or “Western”) society to represent. “Members” advocate a puritan Islamic lifestyle, based on what they perceive to be the examples of the prophet Muhammad and the “pious predecessors.” The article analyzes issues pertaining to segregation/integration and emigration (hijra), according to the official ideology, and attempts to probe into how the group negotiates their particular minority situation being Swedish Salafis. Questions often touched upon, more or less explicit, concern whether a Salafi at all should live in Sweden and how he or she should relate to the surrounding Swedish society and to “others,” those not considered part of the in-group. The article analyses ideological and normative claims and frames this within the contemporary Swedish setting and the presumed growth of Salafism.

    Traditionalist forbiddingof wrong in ‘Abbasid Baghdad2018In: DIN: tidsskrift for religion og kultur, ISSN 1501-9934, E-ISSN 2387-6735, no 1, p. 113-137Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The article focuses on the formative period of juridical traditions in the ‘Abbasid city of Baghdad. Ibn Hanbal (d. 855) was an early important Traditionalist, who practiced a passive resistance towards those he considered to hold faulty beliefs, or was considered guilty of faulty conduct. The focus of the article is the conflictual situation that can be related to conflicts of interpretative authority, especially regarding the duty of forbidding wrong, not the least during the 10th century, when several conflicts lead to social upheaval and violent conflict, for example during the lead of al-Barbahari (d. 941). The political, social and economic situation in the city of Baghdad is the context and functions as an explanatory background to the conflicts of interpretations between various Islamic factions. Following the violence and turbulence addressed in the article, a comment is made on the reasons as to why a more passive form of correction when forbidding wrong became the dominant strategy, which was promoted and practiced by, amongst others Abu Bakr al-Khallal (d. 923). One explanation is the pragmatic realization that rioting did not have a future, and in order to preserve Traditionalism it was necessary to adopt a more lenient strategy, which would not cause the caliph too much concern.

    Engaging the history of religions: from an Islamic studies perspective2015In: Temenos, ISSN 0497-1817, E-ISSN 2342-7256, Vol. 51, no 2, p. 201-225Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The future and relevance of the history of religions discipline in the Swedish context has been discussed lately. This article is a response to this debate from an Islamic studies perspective. The authors argue that the history of religions discipline may become more relevant if a more self-critical approach is adopted, an interdisciplinary attitude upheld, and if there is an openness to learn from other disciplines studying religion such as Islamic studies. Moreover, a reflection on ‘history’ in the history of religions is necessary if elitism and a too narrow definition of the discipline are to be avoided. Furthermore, the article addresses the question as to whether or not scholarly engagement in disseminating findings in public should be an intellectual and moral requirement.
