An emerging European Islam: the case of the Minhajul Qurءan in the Netherlands M. AMER MORGAHI
Pages 18

The Minhajul Qurءan (Path of the Qurءan) is a traditionalist Islamic movement of Pakistani origin that in the Netherlands has succeeded better than most other movements in reaching out across ethnic and national boundaries, and appears to have an especially strong appeal for young Muslims of various backgrounds. The Minhajul Qurءan (henceforth: MQ) is not a numerically large movement – it controls only three mosques and one simple prayer room in the Netherlands – but deserves attention because of its fl exibility and the emergence of localized cultural forms in its public activities.
