This book analyzes the discourses and deliberations in the
discussion forums of three of the most visited Islamic websites. In
doing so, it explores the potential impact of the Islamic public
sphere, and the re-configuration of the 'virtual umma' (Islamic
community) online, on the creation of multiple identities and
resistances, which manifest themselves through various Islamic
sites, producing varying degrees of consensus, divergence, and
negotiation in multiple contexts and across different discourses.
The book also investigates the extent to which these Islamic
websites have provided a venue for Muslims to freely engage in
vibrant deliberations and constructive discussions among
themselves, as well as with 'Others', i.e., non-Muslims, about
various political, economic, religious and social issues.
