Chapter Summary

The movement today is made up of white collar workers, thinkers and religious scholars, but also by preachers who stand in a complex relationship to the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) movement. This chapter observes a distinction between those who are located outside of Europe, most of these in the Muslim world, and those who live in Europe. The first group makes up a sort of referential framework in the largest sense, although this framework may sometimes be a bit abstract; it is the second group that has the most concrete effect upon the European scene. In the space between the two, just the same, certain personalities take on the role of a bridge between two worlds. The chapter discusses several persons - Yūsuf Al-Qaradāwī, Fayçal Al-Mawlawi, and Saʾīd Ramādan Al-Būtī - who appear to act as bridges between the Muslim world and the West.

Keywords: European Muslims; Fayçal Al-Mawlawi; Muslim Brotherhood (MB); Saʾīd Ramādan Al-Būtī; Yūsuf Al-Qaradāwī
