Abstract

This paper examines the concept of material consumption culture in the Moslem world. It differentiates between institutionalized religion and religion as culture, contests the portrayal of Islam as a dogmatic ideological system, and concludes that in their profane consumption practices, Moslems interpret the sacred (Islamic guidelines) in multiple ways.
