KUNNUMMAL, Ashraf. Mapping Post-Secular Islamic Liberation Theology. J. Study Relig. [online]. 2022, vol.35, n.1, pp.1-25. ISSN 2413-3027.

This article argues that the post-secular turn is the new social analysis that shapes the politics of the impoverized2 in Islamic liberation theology. In this article, I suggest that, given the essentialism and determinism characterizing much of the contemporary studies of religion and secularism, a direct articulation of a post-secular approach from an Islamic liberation theology perspective is both inevitable and necessary. Such an approach can offer new meaning for both religion and secularism by engaging with the hegemony of secularism in relation to the state and society to envision a politics of the impoverized.

Keywords : Islamic liberation theology; post-secularism; Islam; Ali SharTati; Asghar Ali Engineer.
