Informations and abstract

Keywords: Muslim; Online Communities; De-territorialisation; Re-territorialisation; Shari'a.

The Internet has opened up new communication perspectives and the possibility of the creation of online communities, among which Muslim communities offering advice to individuals seeking information and Shari'a in a non-Muslim country, as highlighted by Possamai and his colleagues. The issue is to understand if these online groups work as communities and if they do contribute to a de-territorialisation process from traditional religious practices or if on the contrary they are part of an attempt of re-territorialisation of the Muslims who potentially could achieve some gap with a conservative view of Islam. The challenge is to better understand the impact of online Muslim groups on daily life and the potential bricolages to adapt religion to context.
