Islam and the Prayer Economy

Benjamin F. Soares

Edinburgh University Press

Chapter 8 considers the importance of the secular state, the development of the public sphere, and mass media, as well as the impact of these on Nioro as a social and religious space at the end of the twentieth century. Returning to the question of the Hamawiyya and its absent shaykh, it discusses the development of a new incipient tradition of Islam that allows some to bypass some of the debates between Muslims in this religious center.
