Salafism

Salafism is an ultra conservative fundamentalist reform movement within Sunni Islam. The term comes from the Arabic term "Salaf" - translating as ancestors - used for the earliest Muslims.

Salafists emulate the Prophet Muhammad and his earliest followers, they reject religious Innovation and support the implementation of sharia (Islamic law)." The smallest sub-group are the jihadists. Salafism is widespread in Saudi Arabia, but also a growing movement in Germany. This is an automatic compilation of all DW content on salafists.
