ROLE OF ULEMA IN THE ISLAMIC WORLD
Volume: 1 Issue: 1 2011
Ulema in India form an important aspect of medieval Indian history. They attracted the creative social, religious and intellectual energies in the country to become instrumental for social and cultural change. The Ulema were that part of the Muslim Community learned in literature, law and doctrines of Islam. They were judges, jurists, prayers, leaders, scholars, teachers, readers of Quran, recitals of traditions, Sufis, functionaries of mosques and so on. Their essential duty was to preserve the knowledge of the divine will, and to sustain the community as an Islamic community and give it religious and moral guidance. They carried on the teaching of Islam, enforced its morals, upheld its laws, proclaimed its doctrines, suppressed corruption and vice.
