Negotiating a Space in the Mosque: Women Claiming Religious Authority

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    In Indonesia the main significance of the mosque has been as a locus for praying; however, there has been a continuous effort to revitalise its function, including on campuses, to mirror the role of the mosque in the time of the Prophet Muhammad in which it served as a com�munity centre. During that period, the religious, social and political lives of Muslims were centred in mosques which functioned as a public space for education, dakwah (proselytisation), politics and social interaction (see also Wahyuddin Halim, this volume; Nakosteen 1964; Zaimeche 2002).
