Global Salafism

Terje Østebø

Oxford University Press

The Salafi movement in Ethiopia is interesting for its position as a minority in an otherwise Christian country. This chapter sketches the reasons for the rise of Salafism in Ethiopia, where Islam has shallow roots. He analyzes how Salafis have been able to acquire higher status and power within the Muslim community by claiming to have superior knowledge over traditional Islam. He also demonstrates the appeal of Salafism for the Ethiopian youth.
