Pan-Islamic Connections

Alix Philippon

Oxford University Press

The whole spectrum of Pakistani Sufi orders is represented in the Gulf. They range from the New Age Sufi Islam of Sufi Order International to the Deobandi orthodox Sufism of the Naqshbandiyya Owaisia or the Barelvi-inspired Sufism of Minhaj-ul Quran organized around the cult of the so-called Shaykh-ul Islam’Tahir-ul Qadri. Alix Philippon explores the ways these orders have established themselves in some Gulf monarchies. Providing migrants with a set of religious services, they also benefit a lot from diaspora funding there. Moreover, Pakistani Sufi networks in the Gulf contribute to the creation of a new religious elite back home.
