But in all these sorts of analysis—whether they be tri-partite or penta-partite, whether applied to Judaism, Christianity or Islam, and despite any lingering debate over the accuracy of the terminology and description—there would seem to be a prominent section of modern ideology missing.

To the extent that Muslim post-modernism does exist, its greatest manifestation is to be found outside the cultural sphere of the Muslim countries themselves. The future may offer a different situation, in some people’s estimation, with the rise of the women’s movement and the inversion of power structures within the Muslim world as will be explored in Part V of this book. It is worthy of note now, however, that even here the positions enunciated seem limited: we do not see many women enunciating a new shari‘a that displaces the male prerogative, or many who work on a theology based upon a female (or all-inclusive, gender-neutral) language.
Fundamentalist Islam and revivalism The Fundamentalist group, in contrast to the Traditionalist, is characterized by its desire to accept change in a controlled fashion; it therefore uses the authoritative sources of the past to legitimize changes in the present day. This group has a long intellectual history in Islam, or at least that is the perception of its adherents. This is an important observation because it illustrates well the fact that modernity is not just an issue of Islam facing the onslaught of the West: Islam has had its own organic growth and development and, to emphasize the point once again, has developed its own methods of coping with change in the past.
