Secularization and the World Religions

This chapter discusses Islamist perceptions regarding secularization. It discusses the Islamist notion of the ‘unity of religion and the state’. From an Islamist point of view, religion and state cannot and must not be separated, and any separation is an offence against Islam. The chapter also examines Sharia, the system of norms and values that shape the individual conduct and the social order, economy, law and politics in the Muslim community.

Keywords:   Islamist, secularization, religion, state, Sharia, Muslim community, social order, economy, law, politics
