Product Overview

Dr Kozlowskis important study pioneers a fresh approach to the study of a critical Muslim institution: the endowments or awqaf which almost everywhere in the Islamic world provide support for mosques, schools and shrines. The wealthier Muslims who establish endowments inevitably have an eye on social, political and economic conditions and have traditionally used awqaf as part of an effort to preserve their wealth and influence, especially in periods of change and uncertainty. The book focuses on the use of endowments by Muslims suffering the dislocations caused by the imposition of British rule in India and examines in detail the social and political implications of the controversy over endowments that took place in the imperial courts and councils. The authors observations and insights can be applied to many periods and places in the Muslim world and his novel approach will attract all those interested in the study of Islam. *Author: Kozlowski, Gregory C. *Series Title: Cambridge South Asian Studies *Series Number: 35 *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 228 *Publication Date: 2008/10/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.51 x 8.50 x 0.51 inches
