Piety, Politics, and Everyday Ethics in Southeast Asian Islam Beautiful Beh
Amid the dazzling complexity of Islamic civilization, the concept of adab provides Muslims with a shared sense of sacred history, identity, and morality. In the context of Islamic ethics, adab defines the rules of personal and public etiquette: good manners, moral conduct, civility, humaneness, beautiful behavior. Spotlighting the interdisciplinary research of ten prominent scholars, th offers new perspectives on adab’s multiple meanings and myriad applications for Muslim communities in Malaysia and Indonesia. The chapters examine a wide range of texts including the writings of key Muslim thinkers and contexts, focusing on the everyday experiences of lay Muslims. Drawing on a variety of theoretical and methodological lenses, the essays reveal how’beautiful behavior’ impacts local institutions, cultural practices, and religious imaginations via politics and law, spirituality and piety, ethics and experience.
