Islamism is group of ideologies that say that Islamic nations should be run by sharia (Islamic laws). Generally, it is the idea that Islam should guide both society and politics, as well as people's personal lives.[1] Important people who have inspired Islamist movements include Yusuf al-Qaradawi, Rashid Rida, and Muhammad Iqbal.
