Sammanfattning

The developments and activities among the attendees to a Naqshbandi-Haqqani Sufi priory in north London in recent years have come to raise a number of issues regarding Sufism in Western Europe. The relationship between shaykh and murid, "disciple", has been developed into a complex interaction where ongoing negotiations concerning the content and form of the tariqa’s activities continuously take place. At the same time, political initiatives referring to "Sufi ideology" are becoming a key aspect of the tariqa’s activity, along with public events where spiritual experiences are performed in a popularised manner. This article strives to describe and analyse these recent developments in light of the concepts "translocality" and "movement".
