Privatizing Islam

(p.77) Chapter 4 Privatizing Islam
Building a House in Heaven

Mona Atia

University of Minnesota Press

Chapter 4 revisits the state’s cooptation of Islam and argues that it had the opposite of the intended effect; instead of quashing Islamic institutions it fueled the growth of a privatized Islam that was beyond its purview. The chapter focuses on the institutions that constitute a privatized Islam, chiefly the rise of private mosques, private foundations, and an Islamic private sector.
