Tablighi Jamaat: a multidimensional movement of religious travellers.

Tablighi Jamaat is a voluntary mass movement that preaches Islamic teachings, mainly of the Deobandi school of thought, in the Indian subcontinent. This chapter aims to contribute to the religious tourism literature by discussing the transformative nature and role of Tablighi Jamaat within the context of Islamic tourism. To achieve this aim, the chapter provides a brief introduction to Tablighi Jamaat, briefly highlighting its history. It then provides an opportunity to the reader to understand the structure of this mass mobilization of human and other resources through religious travelling, the underlying principles and activities, mechanism of training and development of devotees, and the monitoring of performance and roles of both genders during practical involvements in activities of Tablighi Jamaat. In doing so, the chapter points to the significant transformative experiences that followers experience over an extended period of time. The implications of the movement for the Islamic tourism industry are also discussed, including its economic impact.
