This research includes illumination on the ideological, intellectual, political and religious foundations of the growing phenomenon of “interceptive Islam”, which is active in Arab and Islamic societies, and calls for the application of Islam and its laws in public and private life. These movements have their organizational manifestations, their various concepts, and their intellectual and ideological roots.
