Note sur l'espace public salafi en Jordanie

Abstract : Located at the crossroads of the Levant and the Arabian Peninsula, Jordan occupies a special place in Islamic geography, particularly for the Salafi movement. Although Jordan is somewhat neglected in studies of the salafiyya, in the past thirty years the country has produced almost as many Salafi scholars - of all trends - as Saudi Arabia. However, it is Saudi Arabia that dominates the attention of researchers and journalists. This article presents the Jordanian salafiyya both through the theological debates that drive it and through its territorial establishment within Jordanian cities (Amman, Zarqa and Irbid). Jordanian Salafi preachers, whether jihadist or quietist, receive international exposure through their networks of followers spread across the world, and increasingly use the Internet.
