This work has benefited from a wide body of literature concerning spaces of worship in Islam, and Muslim communities and architecture more broadly. While the archetype of the mosque has often dominated this field of scholarship, this book has consulted a variety of works – both early and contemporary – to offer an inclusive account of Muslim piety in the 21st century. Below is a list of these works, arranged according to the broader fields of knowledge that they contribute to.
