Abstract

As scholarly interest in Australia’s cameleers has increased, there has been suggestions that some of these Muslim migrants were connected with Sufism. However, to date, there has been limited analysis and insufficient evidence to claim a strong connection between the cameleers and Sufism in Australia. This article attempts to rectify this by providing an analysis and translation of a handwritten manuscript found at Broken Hill’s historic cameleer mosque. The contents of this manuscript highlight a strong connection to the history of Sufism, tracing separate family and pedagogic genealogies back to ʿAbd al-Qādir al-Jīlānī (d. 561/1166), the founder of the Qādiriyya Sufi order.

The Handbook of Islamic Sects and Movements offers a multinational study of Islam, its variants, influences, and neighbouring movements, from a multidisciplinary range of scholars. These chapters highlight the diversity of Islam, especially in its contemporary manifestations, as a religion of many communities, theologies, and ideologies. Over five sections—on Sunni, Shia, Sufi, fundamentalist, and fringe Islamic movements—the authors provide historical overviews, analyses, and in-depth studies of large and small Islamic and related groups from all around the world. The contents of this volume will be of interest to both newcomers to the study of Islam and established scholars of religion who wish to engage with the dynamic label of Islam and the many impactful movements of the Islamic world.
