Cheikh Shaarawi, star de l'" islam électronique "

Abstract : Through the presentation of Sheikh Shaarawi, an immensely famous Moslem preacher in Arab countries and beyond, this article notes some effects of the introduction into these societies of new information and communication technologies currently used in all areas of public life, including religion. The fate of this extraordinary preacher would unquestionably not have been the same without the technological revolution that transformed religious discourse and especially the ways in which it is spread. Sheikh Shaarawi was the first to provide new users of modern media with a global (religious) product, adapted to suit each branch of the modern culture industry. Thus, strongly influenced by Sheikh Shaarawi (who died in 1998), the last decades of the twentieth century saw the Arab world leave the age of "vocal" Islam" to enter that of 'TV Islam" and now "electronic Islam".
