Abstract

The recent upsurge of Islamic revivalism that has swept through the Muslim world has added more to the latter's problems than it has provided solutions to those already existing. The problems it created, and in fact the nature and origins of the revivalist movement itself, have varied from country to country depending on political, economic, and social conditions. This article intends to examine the shape of Islamic revivalism and its consequences in two countries, Sri Lanka and Malaysia, which offer several contrasting structural differences.
