The Tablighi Jamaat may be the world’s largest Islamic movement, active in some 165 countries, but what is it? Is it even a “movement”? Is it a-political or is it a cover for terrorism? Is it a route to a meaningful life–an alternate global culture? Or is it an example of ostrich-like escapism? Countless Tablighis devote themselves to the core program of encouraging fellow Muslims to religious fidelity, and these activities well merit our attention.
