Theologization of volunteerism: An Islamic perspective

Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

Abstract

Volunteering is in no way a new concept nor is it exclusive to a particular group of people or a particular religion. Therefore, it would be of no surprise that the notion of volunteering is embedded in the Islamic ethos as a result of certain concepts found in the primary Islamic text, the Quran and Sunnah. The Qur’anic portrayal of humans as vicegerencies (caliphs) on earth who are responsible for the well‐being of everything and everyone on earth has played an important role in developing a sense of responsibility within Muslims. This chapter first will focus on the theologisation of volunteering particularly during times of crises. Secondly, it will examine several Islamic concepts related to volunteerism after which it will analyse case studies.
