This chapter describes how the reconstruction of Mawdudi’s attempt to provide an alternative ideological outline requires a closer understanding of the wider spatial and temporal framework in which his system had been situated. His rather schematic conception of history, albeit not presented in a systematic and comprehensive manner before 1940, was well designed to serve exactly such a framework. The lateness of the systematic development of this particular conception might be explicable by the fact that, on the one hand, it resulted from Mawdudi’s longer-term analysis of the current situation of Muslims in general, and in British India in particular, sparked off by his retrospective critical assessment of the Indian Caliphate Movement of the early 1920s.

Keywords:   Mawdudi, ideological outline, temporal framework, British India, Indian Caliphate Movement
