著者からの紹介

 

  本書は、私のライフ・ワークである「ムスリム諸社会におけるムハンマド一族の立場と役割」というテーマを正面から掲げ、2009年9月に東洋文化研究所で開催した国際会議での発表論文を集めたものである。私は、「世界唯一人者」などとうそぶきながら、このテーマの重要性を世界のイスラーム研究者たちに訴えかけてきたが、声がか細いためか、ムハンマド一族の研究がトレンドになるような現象はこれまでのところ起こっていない。まさかトレンドを作り出したりはしないであろうが、しっかりとした国際流通ネットワークに乗る本書の出版が、これまでとは違った効果をもたらすことを期待している。なお、ムハンマド一族研究の意義と狙いに関する私の考えについては、情報学環紀要に寄せた以下の一文を参照されたい: http://www.iii.u-tokyo.ac.jp/blog/media/7/82_8.pdf

Introduction

The global Muslim population includes a large number of lineal descendants and relatives of the Prophet Muhammad. These kinsfolk, most often known as "sayyids" or "sharifs," form a distinct social category in many Muslim societies, and their status can afford them special treatment in legal matters and in the political sphere.

This book brings together an international group of renowned scholars to provide a comprehensive examination of the place of the kinsfolk of Muhammad in Muslim societies, throughout history and in a number of different local manifestations. The chapters cover:

  • how the status and privileges of sayyids and sharifs have been discussed by religious scholars
  • how the prophetic descent of sayyids and sharifs has functioned as a symbolic capital in different settings
  • the lives of actual sayyids and sharifs in different times and places

Providing a thorough analysis of sayyids and sharifs from the ninth century to the present day, and from the Iberian Peninsula to the Indonesian Archipelago, this book will be of great interest to scholars of Islamic studies, Middle East and Asian studies.
