Book Description

8 Oct 1992
This is a comprehensive historical study of the Islamic mystical brotherhoods of the northern Sudan. Based on new or previously inaccessible oral and written sources, it traces the change from lineage-based holy clans to centralized supra-tribal brotherhoods in the 19th century. It links this evolution to both external influences from Egypt and Arabia and changes in northern Sudanese society brought about by Egyptian colonial rule. The analysis of this fundamental shift in the nature of religious organization is seen as a major contributory factor in the Mahdist Revolutiuon of 1882-5. The last two chapters present an account of the structure and rituals of the brotherhoods based on their own writings. The work seeks to serve as a corrective to earlier histories of Islam in the Sudan and as a basis for understanding of the role of the brotherhoods in modern Sudanese society.

this book gives a very detailed edification of the various sufi orders both indigenous and imported whether by way of the spiritual or the political. mr. karrar has indeed delved into the sufi orders progressive spread during the turn of the 18th century and it's spawning of al-mahdi muhammad ahmad ibn abdullah the reformer and leader of the revolution to liberate the sudan from it's turkish\egyptian rulers.it also sheds a brief light on the mahdiyya(ansaar party) and it's political rivals the khatamiyya. excellent book.
