(p.181) 7 ‘Reform’
Islam and the Prayer Economy

Benjamin F. Soares

Edinburgh University Press

Chapter 7 looks at so-called Islamic reform, particularly the activities and influence of Muslim reformists, their discourses, and efforts to change the way Islam has been practiced in West Africa and in Mali in particular. It also considers some of the ways reformists and those within the Sufi tradition they criticize have certain shared objectives and values. At the same time, it points to the influence of reformist discourses on the Sufi tradition in spite of their limited success.
