dc.description.abstractThe terms ‘caliphate’, ‘jihad’, and ‘sharia’ are frequently namedropped in contemporary media when addressing acts of ‘Islamic extremism’ of international terrorist (Salafist-Jihadist) groups like Al-Qaeda and Islamic State. Yet, these concepts are hardly ever defined properly or critically evaluated from a historical perspective. As a result, the way Salafist-Jihadists reference complicated concepts in their speeches, propagandistic music, and ‘newsletters’ is simply paraphrased by the media, and presumed to be accurate by many laypeople. These terms, however, are not as straightforward and ‘timeless’ as they may seem. The careless or oblivious regurgitation of such complicated theological terms by the media – wherein Salafist-Jihadist notions are not questioned – greatly hinders objective discussions on Islam. Arguably, this uncritical copying of Salafist-Jihadist jargon has created a Western discourse based upon Salafist-Jihadist narratives and has redefined what Islam ‘fundamentally’ (cf. fundamentalism) means to the rather ‘anomalous’ Salafist-Jihadist understanding of it. This not only fuels Islamophobia and makes it difficult to even argue that Islam is not necessarily violent, but the Salafist-Jihadist-inspired media narrative might also become internalized by some Muslims, who then turn to Salafist-Jihadism – the supposed ‘true face of Islam’. To this end, this thesis seeks to provide a hitherto sparsely provided comparison between the most important Salafist-Jihadist notions of ‘caliphate’, ‘jihad’, ‘sharia’, and ‘Islamic music’, and how these ideas were first broached by the very ‘scholars of the Salaf’ of Early Islam (circa 610–850) themselves – thus testing how ‘literalist’ and ‘purist’ the Salafi-inspired Jihadists are in reality. By contrasting Salafist-Jihadist ideas of Islamic concepts with those of the earliest religious scholars, this thesis uncovers several tensions between the understandings of the ‘original’ Salaf and the modern Salafist-Jihadists. In general, the Salafist-Jihadist notions of ‘caliphate’, ‘sharia’, ‘jihad’, and ‘religious music’ are much more entrenched in modern political concepts of government, law, warfare, and recent ‘folk-Islamic’ traditions than might be expected from this supposed originalist movement. Consequently, the quasi-historical religious argumentation Salafist-Jihadists employ to justify and shape their political ideology is suspect and should be examined more through historical comparative analysis.
