The rule of man over man is exploitation; submission to Allah the creator is the only way to emancipation.
A slogan by Islami Jamiat-i Tulabah

Those who do not rule in accordance with God’s revelations are the disbelievers.
Al-Maeda (44) The Qur’an 

Course Description and Objective:

This course will examine the role of Islamic movements (IM) and Islamic parties (IP) in the contemporary Muslim world in the global age of capitalism. In the course, we focus on IM and IP and their relationship with global capitalism, democracy, free speech, gender issues, human rights, inequality, colonialism/imperialism, modernity, secularism and governance. All of these concepts are directly related with the conditions of modernity which are created by capitalism; therefore, I perceive Political Islam (IM and IP) as a product of modern conditions, such as urbanization, the emergence of a manufacturing-based economy, the increased availability of higher education, women’s participation in education and the workforce, and the elimination of traditional social values. Christianity and Judaism have also been struggling to redefine themselves under the new rules and regulations – not revelations - for over 200 years; whereas in Muslim Societies, the conditions of modernity are newer. Therefore, Muslims are now being asked to decide between the expression and practice of Din/Religion and the material world in their daily life. In these societies there is an ongoing struggle between the observance of God, and the pursuit of material conditions.


Although Political Islam could be seen as a direct reaction to modern politics, Islam has always been political; it is an inherently political religion with rules that regulate every aspect of a believer’s daily life, much in the same way that capitalism does.

We will look at Islam from a sociological point of view – not from the theological perspective, and seek to understand what Islam means to Muslim-populated societies. Islam plays a major role in world politics today, especially following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Islamic movements and parties have also occupied the public and political sphere more noticeably from the 1980s until the present time. Today, Islam is the religion of one fifth of the World’s population, and is one of the fastest growing religions. Muslims live in many regions across the globe; from Morocco to Indonesia. The contribution of Islam to world civilization is undeniable, however in the last one hundred years, Muslims have experienced conditions of economic underdevelopment, dictatorship, colonialism/exploitation/imperialism, and most importantly, the onset of modernity. We will discuss the following questions and themes; what does modernity mean for Muslims? Will there be an Islamic renaissance? How about an Islamic reformation? In relation to these questions, what are today’s Islamic movements and parties trying to achieve? Unlike in the past, Islamic movements and parties have been very successful in democratic elections in the Muslim world, such as Hamas in Israel/Palestine, the Justice and Development Party in Turkey, Hizbullah in Lebanon, the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and Al-Nahda in Tunisia. In this course, we seek to understand the motivations of these movements, the reasons for their broad social and political popularity and relevance, and their unique hierarchical structures. This course does not concern itself with Al-Qaida or other terrorist organizations, but does familiarize students with IM and IP more generally. This course examines the roots and traces the development of IM and IP in North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and South East Asia.

As described, Islam is not just a religion, but is also likely to manifest as a socio-economic and political structure; therefore, one must understand the socio-historical background and the origin of Islamic belief systems, as well as their underpinning theoretical basis from thinkers such as:


Objectives:
The course objectives are 1) to acquaint students with both traditional and contemporary literature and research on Islamic movements, and 2) to introduce students to the historical and ideological basis of Classical and Contemporary Islamic Political Thought.

Course Philosophy:
The goal of this course is to enable students to write a theoretically guided and empirically rooted research paper.  I expect you to become familiar with the social, political and economic underpinnings of Islam and Islamic movements.

The success of this course depends on your continued and sustained reading and participation. The course will be based on a four-dimensional method of learning, and this includes inquiry and critical thinking; communication; the diversity of human experience; and ethics and social responsibility. First, I would like you to critically analyze what you learn in this class or have learned so far through the media and education, because in today’s world, truth is a relative concept. Throughout human history, critical thinking is the one of the most important factors that has contributed to human development.  In order to become active, self-motivated, empowered learners and future leaders, you will need to have the ability to think critically, and therefore your criticism, feedback and suggestions are necessary. Second, I would like you to enhance your writing and oral communication skills in this course. Therefore, it is important to clearly elaborate your arguments in the class discussion as well as in the written assignments.

Third, we are each part of the human mosaic, and all have different experiences based on our social, political and economic differences. We can all learn from and respect each other and benefit from our diversity. Please try to learn from and understand those with different perspectives than you. Lastly, we need to learn that we are all part of this intellectual community and larger society, and all have social and ethical responsibilities to our family, community, classmates, and humanity. We live in a globalized world and therefore, we need to be aware of events in our community, and the world today. In order to enhance our knowledge, we must critically examine our social, political and economic environment in order to apply this knowledge to our experience.

Course Requirements
To prevent confusion later, please read the following information carefully:

Reflection papers: The reflection papers will include an open book essay that will determine what you have learned in class each week. I will ask you four questions regarding the weekly reading and class discussion. The reflection papers should be at least 1600 words. Font size should be Times New Roman, 12 point. The due date for each exam is Sunday by 12:00 midnight. You need to email me your reflection papers with Word document.
Criteria: If your paper is less than 1600 words, or late, you will loose 4 points.   

Weekly Presentations: Each week, three or four students will be assigned a weekly topic from the readings. These students will summarize the readings and prepare a content outline and 4-6 questions for the class, in order to come prepared to lead the class discussion for 15 minutes. Each student must always read the course materials before they attend class, and I expect you to participate actively in the class discussion. I strongly recommend that you present in earlier weeks rather than later in the semester, because you may not find the right time available to present, and will loose presentation points. Presentation dates are available on a first-come first-served basis. The timeline for weekly presentations will be provided in the first week of class. After we have filled in student names and finalized the weekly presentation schedule, it will be posted to D2L. 

Newspaper Articles: During the semester, you can bring 4 newspaper articles related with our class subjects. You cannot bring more than one article in the same week. You will have to summarize these articles verbally in class and will find the recommended newspapers listed on D2L, under the external links section. Newspaper articles sent by email will not be accepted. Please bring the first page of the printed/hard copy of the article to class. Some of the recommended newspapers include The Guardian, Al-Jazeera, Democracynow.org, Financial Times, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and the Economist. You can only bring an article on Mondays.

Final Paper: This will be a group project. Each group of three or four students will select a recommended Islamic Movement or party, which you will analyze within a theoretical framework from this class. The paper will be a research paper and you can use other sources as well, however you should clearly use citations. You will present a draft version of your paper in the Islamic Movements Students Conference at the last week of class, Wednesday March 12. This mini-student conference will be open to the public. The final paper is an empirical paper of at least 12.000 words, Times New Roman font, 12 point, doubled spaced. I must approve your paper topic and plan ahead of time.

Participation/Attendance: Each student must read the course materials before they attend class, and I expect them to participate in class discussion. Regular class attendance is one of the most important parameters to successful completion of the course requirements. If you find interesting articles, books, videos, or other sources that pertain to the class topics and discussion, please share them with me and with your classmates. This can count towards your class participation score.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY! - Electronic Devices & Other Classroom Policies

Coming late to class and leaving early: Latecomers will not be accepted in the class, so be on time. If you are late for a class, please do not disturb your classmates and me and do not come at all. Please also do not send an email or call me regarding your class attendance. If there is a medical need, bring a letter from a doctor. Whatever the reason is, if you cannot come to class, this is your responsibility. If you miss more than 4 classes, you will not receive an attendance/participation grade. PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE EARLY EITHER! This is a class, not a coffee shop!

Laptop and cell phone policy: No electronic devices (including but not limited to laptops, cell phones, blackberries, etc) are to be used in the classroom. This includes talking on the phone, texting, playing games, surfing the web, or any other inappropriate usage. Those caught using restricted devices will be asked to leave class. Lectures may not be recorded with audio or multi-media devices. Please turn your cell phone off before you come to class.

Responsibility: You and/or your parents pay tuition for this class; therefore, you have responsibility to yourself and/or your parents. Passing or failing the class is not the main objective, rather that you learn and improve your knowledge. Please read and try to understand the main concepts of this class. If you are having difficulty, please do not hesitate to see me and discuss your concerns!

Each year, almost half a million people graduate from American public universities (see http://collegecompletion.chronicle.com/). As you will see from the statistics, the job market is very competitive; therefore, students need to improve their knowledge, skills, and experience in order to find a job they want. Learning is a lifelong process. An academic institution like Portland State University will provide you with an educational discipline and methodology; everything else is up to you. You should study and improve your skills, in order to compete with the rest of the graduates. While you are in the program, you should apply for internships to obtain relevant experiences before you graduate. Therefore, if you need a letter of recommendation for an internship or job, please do not hesitate to ask me, if you receive at least an A, A- or B+ grade from my class. Please also remember that an undergraduate degree might not be enough to find the job you want; therefore, you might need to apply to graduate school. In order to apply to graduate school, you will also need to have a letter of recommendation. I am also happy to advise you on graduate school or provide a letter of recommendation if you receive an A, A- or B+ grade.

The chief characteristic of the Islamic Concept of Life is that it does not admit a conflict, nay, not even a significant separation between life-spiritual and life-mundane. It does not confine itself merely in purifying the spiritual and the moral life of man in the limited sense of the word. Its domain extends to the entire gamut of life. It wants to mould individual life as well as the social order in healthy patterns, so that the Kingdom of God may really be established on the earth and so that peace, contentment and well-being may fill the world as waters fill the oceans. The Islamic Way of Life is based on this unique approach to life and a peculiar concept of man's place in the Universe.
