Maududi poured his energy into books, pamphlets and more than 1000 speeches and press statements, laying the ground work for making Pakistan an Islamic state, but also dealing with a variety of issues of interest in Pakistan and the Muslim world. He sought to be a Mujaddid, "renewing" (tajdid) the religion.

Mawlana Mawdudi was one of the most influential and important Islamic thinkers of the modern world, whose brand of political Islam has won widespread acceptance in South and South East Asia as well as the Middle East. He was not only an Islamic scholar, but also a journalist and political activist who founded the Jama'at-i-Islami, which has subsequently influenced the development of many Islamic movements and parties throughout the Muslim world.

In this work Roy Jackson makes a fine attempt to contextualize Mawlana Mawdudi’s thought within the framework of political Islam. He seeks to provide a fresh analysis of some of the key issues related to Islam and Muslims today, such as the idea of an Islamic democracy, or ‘theo-democracy,’ the notion of ‘jihad’ and the ‘role of women’ which, he contends, continue to have ‘resonance for our world today’ (back cover). It is a compact book touching upon diverse issues (Mawdudi’s intellectual background, his life in India and in Pakistan, the origins of the Jama’at-i Islami) and areas of study (politics, religion, militanc.

Mawlana Mawdudi and political Islam. Jackson, Roy. Mawlana Mawdudi and political Islam.

Mawlana Mawdudi was one of the most influential and important Islamic thinkers of the modern world, whose brand of political Islam has won widespread acceptance in South and South East Asia as well as the Middle East. He was not only an Islamic scholar, but also a journalist and political activist who founded the Jama’at-i-Islami, which has subsequently influenced the development of many Islamic movements and parties throughout the Muslim world.

This book is the first to critically engage and assess his career and legacy within the wider context of political Islam. It includes coverage of his early life and influences, and examines his considerable influence in the contemporary Islamic world. The issues that were a concern for Mawdudi and continue to have resonance for our world today include such questions as the role of women in Islam, the possibilities for democracy in an Islamic state, the importance of jihad, and the moral and religious responsibility of the individual. Whilst focus is on Mawdudi’s life and writings, this is placed within the wider context of topical, often contentious, Islamic thought.

Providing an up-to-date and detailed critical study of Mawlana Mawdudi and many issues surrounding political Islam both in his time and today, this book will be an important text for scholars of Islamic Studies, Political Science and Philosophy.
