Marginal Islam: Reconfiguring the <i>Ummah</i>

Nadeem Mahomed


This article fundamentally makes an argument for considering the margins as an important component to both understanding and enriching Islam as a religious tradition. It provides an assessment of how the margins are at once inconspicuous and transformative – of how life on the margins can contribute to navigating ethical dilemmas. Finally, it presents a reflection on marginalities as the portal through which the ummah can negotiate difference in a productive way.
