Nursi, Bediuzzaman Said al-

Source:
The Oxford Dictionary of Islam What is This? Covers the religious, political, and social spheres of global Islam in the modern world

    Nursi, Bediuzzaman Said al-

    (d. 1960 )

    Turkish Islamic leader and thinker from Turkey's Kurdish region. Founder of the Nurculuk movement. His outlook was shaped by the Naqshbandi tariqah and westernization in the Ottoman administration. Realized that the Turkish modernization movement needed Islam to bring all Muslims under the umbrella of common faith, with the advantages of Western technology and knowledge. Hoped that this sociopolitical program would be carried out by Young Turks, but those efforts failed despite his collaboration with the Young Turk government and led to his exile. Later exiled by Atatürk when his program of religious revitalization clashed with Atatürk's aims. Proselytizing and influence over disciples led to additional exiles and imprisonments.
