What is meant by awakening? Is it a religious-political movement?
This is where people were in dormancy, in a state of ignorance of Islam and have awakened to consciousness of Islam. This consciousness has led to social, religious and political reform. Since Islam is a way of life, the Islamic awakening has led to change in every realm. This reform or awakening differs from place to place. In certain areas we find Muslims of that place had fallen back in implementing Islam, for example, the veil was shunned by Muslim women in the early 20s in Turkey and later it was revived.< Back to Questions
