    Islam made its deepest and longest lasting impact in Sudan through the activity of the Islamic religious brotherhoods or orders. These orders emerged in the Middle East in the twelfth century in connection with the development of Sufism, a mystical current reacting to the strongly legalistic orientation of orthodox Islam. The orders first came to Sudan in the sixteenth century and became significant in the eighteenth. Sufism seeks for its adherents a closer personal relationship with God through special spiritual disciplines.

Arab states pushed for independence given the large Muslim population and ties to the Arab world from that community. The initial constitution in 1952 was ratified by Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie, but Eritrea and Ethiopia were linked through a federal system, under the sovereignty of the emperor. Eritreans resisted Ethiopian rule and began armed struggle for their independence in 1958.

    Often in the past, Islam has been seen as external to Indonesian, especially Javanese, culture. Later on, radical and militant Muslims were portrayed as puppets created by the intelligence agency, BAKIN, while moderate and ‘civil’ Islam were branded as natural to Indonesia. Hence, until recently, most studies on Islam in Indonesia have focused on these ‘moderates’. Nowadays, however, radical Islamic movements in Indonesia are also keenly observed. Some of these movements use violence; some do not.

    Introduction: From 1360, for 5 years in Europe, due to the situation that had arisen, communication with scholars and Muslim scholars and leaders of Islamic movements of Muslim countries, many of whom were either lived in Europe or came to Europe to participate in seminars and conferences, was provided. Normally I found extensive cultural relations with them. At that point, a number of journals and magazines were published from Islamist groups and organizations in most of Europe and America and I also cooperate with many of them by my thinking and writing.

Some pundits study movements in terms of ideological dimension and some consider them in terms of their sociological emphasis; but for a thorough study, both aspects must be considered. Perhaps we can divide the response of Muslims in the last two decades into two streams of Following the West and Rehabilitation and Reconstruction of Religious Thought.
