Islamic fundamentalism (Arabic: usul, the "fundamentals") is a term uisit tae describe releegious ideologies seen as advocatin a return tae the "fundamentals" o Islam: the Quran an the Sunnah. Definitions o the term vary. Accordin tae Christine L. Kettel, it is deemit problematic bi those who suggest that Islamic belief requires aw Muslims tae be fundamentalists,[1] an bi ithers as a term uisit bi ootsiders tae describe perceivit trends athin Islam.[2] Exemplary figures of Islamic fundamentalism who are also termed Islamists are Sayyid Qutb, Abul Ala Mawdudi and Israr Ahmad.[3] Economist Eli Berman argues that Radical Islam is a better term for mony post-1920s muivements stairtin wi The Muslim Britherhuid, acause these movements are seen tae practice "unprecedentit extremism", thus no qualifyin as return tae historic fundamentals.[4]
