This monograph is the first on the Tablighi Jama'at in Africa. It focuses on a transnational Islamic missionary movement that has its origins in the reformist tradition that emerged in India in the mid-nineteenth century. The work brings a perspective on the dialogue between Sufi and reformist Islam and the interconnection between Islam, translocality and gender.
