 Islamist - dKosopedia
Islamist is a term often used to refer to Muslims who are fundamentalist in their theology and willing to consider political organizing and/or violent action to bring about a world consistent with that theology.
Islamists often differ drastically on their attitude to democracy, political party organizing, and the state itself.
What aspects of Islam they are in favour of turning into law or practice, however, vary extremely widely.

 Laith Kubba, "Islam and Liberal Democracy: Recognizing Pluralism
Since these schools are apolitical by tradition, the interpretation of the political aspects of Islam has recently been claimed by combinations of activist clerics and political groups.
Islamic teachings have shaped the history and political culture of hundreds of millions of people over fourteen centuries, and have embraced a vast range of nations, cultures, sects, and schools of thought.
This political passivity has its roots in religious teachings, and has gone far to perpetuate the tradition of authoritarian government in the Islamic world.

 Bangladesh: The Next Taliban State?   by Taj Hashmi
An appraisal of political Islam in Bangladesh requires an understanding of the socio-economic and cultural aspects of the polity.
What is worrisome is the way the writer has demonised both Islam and Bangladesh, totally ignoring the positive aspects of the third largest Muslim country, which is a functional democracy, no longer considered a “basket case”— the way Henry Kissinger portrayed the country in 1972.
She has no idea about the similarities and differences between various Islamic groups and their leaders, the “great” and “little” traditions of Islam in the region and the difference between the mass/popular perceptions and the reality.

 Political philosophy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Two key aspects are the political economy by which property rights are defined and access to capital is regulated, and the rules of truth and evidence that determine judgements in the law.
The rise of Islam based on both the Qur'an and the political philosophy of Muhammad drastically altered the power balances and perceptions of origin of power in the Mediterranean region.
Political and economic relations were drastically changed by these views as the guild was subordinated to free trade, and Roman Catholic dominance of theology was increasingly challenged by Protestant churches subordinate to each nation-state and which preached in the "vulgar" or native language of each region.

 History of popular Islam in northwestern Tunisia 1800-1970
This paper explores the interplay between local popular Islam and the repeated introduction of formal Islam in Khumiriya, against the background of its social and political structure and the radical changes the latter underwent in the colonial and post-colonial era.
But on the other hand, the formal variant of Islam, and its local exponents, cAn be heard to be explicitly rejected by Khumiri peasants when discussing, with scorn and resentment, the alleged machinations of local authorities and elite both within and outside the sphere of the religion.
This implicit assumption of continuity could be interpreted as an unconscious attempt, on the part of the Khumiris, to escape the cognitive dissonance between on the one hand formal Islam as a local ideal reinforced from outside and on the other popular Islam as a fondly cherished local practice.

 FREE In-depth report - The Coming Of Islam - Sudan
Islamic law (sharia--see Glossary), which was derived primarily from the Quran, encompassed all aspects of the lives of believers, who were called Muslims ("those who submit" to God's will).
Islam also fostered political unity, economic growth, and educational development among its adherents; however, these benefits were restricted largely to urban and commercial centers.
The coming of Islam eventually changed the nature of Sudanese society and facilitated the division of the country into north and south.

 History of the Muslims, empires of Islam
These empires were primarily based on Sunni Islam, and that meant that there was no religious authority to counterbalance the political power exercised by the caliphs.
According to Sunni beliefs, each individual must work out their own submission to Allah; there is no priest or other religious authority to intercede upon a person's behalf or to lead the religious aspects of the community.
This was not some aberration of Islam, but rather business as usual for all but the moderate factions.

 Muammar al-Qaddafi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Qaddafi based his new regime on a blend of Arab nationalism, aspects of the welfare state and what Qaddafi termed "direct, popular democracy." He called this system "Islamic socialism" and while he permitted private control over small companies, the government controlled the larger ones.
Qaddafi emerged as leader of the RCC and eventually as de facto chief of state, a political role he still plays, although he holds no official position.
Qaddafi was the youngest child from a nomadic Bedouin peasant family in the desert region of Sirte.

On 23 April 1999, the Anjouan representatives refused to sign an agreement by the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which proposed broad autonomy for the three islands under a central administration.

Islam encompasses personal faith and piety, the creed and worship of the community of believers, a way of life, a code of ethics, a culture, a system of laws, an understanding of the function of the state--in short, guidelines and rules for life in all its aspects and dimensions.
The interrelation between theological positions and political events is particularly clear in the first issues that arose in the history of Islam.
Islam is definitely an inclusivistic religion in the sense that it recognizes God's sending of messengers to all peoples and his granting of "Scripture and Prophethood" to Abraham and his descendants, the latter resulting in the awareness of a very special link between Muslims, Jews, and Christians as all Abraham's children.

 Rizwi's Bibliography for Medieval Islam
The unusual nature of Islams existence in the region results in a constant acommodation of theoretical Islam which is projected as reprehensible innovation/bid`a or necessary progressiveness depending on the religious and political disposition of those concerned.
Obligatory aspects of the khutba are [according to the Encyclopaedia of Islam]: the hamdala, salat on the Prophet, admonitions to piety, and recitation of a part of the Quran preferably in the first part of the Khutba if not in both.
The khutba or sermon in Islam is precisely defined, however, in terms of place and content: it is delivered only on very specific occasions, namely, the Friday jum`a prayer, the two festivals of Ramadan and Hajj, and on other rare occasions such as when an eclipse occurs or during a harsh drought.
