Faith, Authority and the Malays: The Ulama in Contemporary Singapore
This book examines the nature of religious life among the Malays of Singapore by researching into the nature of religious elite and the basis of their authority or legitimacy. It examines the social-historical background of the ulama, their family roots, education, career paths, elements of thinking, and various forms of contribution towards enriching the religious lives of the Malays. While furnishing useful information on the institutionalization and administration of Islam in contemporary Singapore, the author raises many pertinent questions on the religious lives of the Malays and Muslims in contemporary Singapore, as well as their relations with the wider world of Islam and Muslims elsewhere.
