dc.description.abstractThis chapter provided a snapshot outline of the theory, networks, and lived experiences of transnational progressive Islam and the major milestones and developments associated with it over the last decade and a half. In the first part of the article, a broad overview of the major themes underpinning progressive Muslim thought is presented. In the subsequent parts, the discussion centers on recounting and analyzing the lived experiences of what it means to be a progressive Muslim. More specifically, the historical context in which progressive Muslim organizations have emerged noting their increasing transnational character is described. The chapter also emphasizes the kinds of issues progressive Muslim organizations have been engaged in and significant challenges they have faced in embodying the kinds of values and practices they consider to be the ideals and normative teachings of the Islamic faith which often are at odds with the mainstream approaches to these teachings. The authors conclude that transnational progressive Islam has found a firm place in the rich medley of contemporary Islamic movements and intellectual streams.
