An Ethnographic Journey To Salafism

In the name of Allāh, Most Merciful, the Bestower of Mercy.

From the author’s introduction:

“This article highlights some of my motivations for conducting a study on women’s conversion to Salafism in a modern-day context. In doing so, it introduces my own voice to the research process and gives the reader a greater insight into my positionality as a female researcher researching Salafi women from a community to which she belongs. Further, apart from making a strong and positive contribution to a subject that is difficult to grasp from the outside, this first-hand account also offers innovative research which locates and maps Salafi centres situated around the United Kingdom. This, it is hoped, will aid in the prevention of any future inaccuracies in the production of knowledge that aims to situate narratives of Salafism within the wider debate about New Religious Movements in the modern world—especially those which equate Salafism with violent and non-violent extremism.”
