Pplying the six dimensions to the study of islam
you will need to reflect briefly on Islam. This time I am NOT asking you to list details in a paragraph-by-paragraph treatment of all six dimensions. Your fundamental objective is to focus on the social dimension. Reflect briefly on the ways in which you see groups and sub-groups demarcating a sense of community within Islam. You may want to refer to other dimensions, too, but only insofar as they help convey the importance of shared practices, experiences, and/or beliefs in this assigned context. In short, discuss some ways in which groups are arranged and how they supply meaning and purpose in the lives of Muslims.
