In the previous chapters, we have examined the rise and evolution of the principles of Islamic faith, which are collectively known as “Muslim doctrine” or “Muslim creed.” Now we will try to find out how the general principles constituting the Muslim religious creed are manifested in the life and behavior of individual Muslims. Put differently, we will examine how the Muslims have internalized and implemented the major precepts of their religion. In academic literature, the practical realization of the tenets of a certain religious tradition by its followers is sometimes called “ethos.” 1 Some scholars prefer to speak of “ritual,” while having in mind basically the same thing. It is the ethos or ritual of the Muslims that is the subject matter of the present chapter.
