This dissertation focuses on Melami history in Bosnia with emphasis on the 20th century. The well-known Melami master Hajrullah Abdurahmanovic (d. 1965) in this study becomes an exponent for changes in the political and social role of religion in course of the 20th century. The purpose of this research is to describe and analyze the theology of the Melami movement in the environments created by sufi and other traditions. Melami sufism in Bosnia is part of the social and historical context, and its development is intimately connected with the occurrences and changes that have taken place in the society. The texts created, the language used and the manner in which information and knowledge are conveyed, are thus related to social conditions, even though the informants speaking or writing about persons they have known, or events they have experienced, are dependent on time and space, and their statements and memories are influenced by changes in their environment.
By presenting Melami sufism in Bosnia from the viewpoint of individual persons and small groups the object of the thesis is to present a micro history of Islam and sufism in the Balkans from the beginning of the 20th century up to and during the Communist period. The thesis includes the text of Risalei-salihijja in a Swedish translation, a selection of letters by Hajrullah Abdurahmanovic, as well the contents of his prayer mantle (vird). Globalization, increased mobility and migration caused by various upheavals have resulted in the presence of Melamet and its adherents in Sweden.
