Chapter Summary

This paper will attempt to present the reasons the term "futuwwa" interpreted in a different way in medieval treatises. Alongside linguistically correct etymologies of the term, some treatises also mention such etymologies which could only have religious and political background. In this paper politicization of the futuwwa ideology during the Nasir’s reign will be presented and the political/religious reasons according to which Suhrawardi introduces the etymology of futuwwa in relation to “fatwa” will be demonstrated.
