Neither juridical nor creedal, Islamicate projects a spiritual elan filtered through cultural practices and artefacts. Islamicate Cosmopolitan is always an aspiration, as much longing for the just and beautiful (ihsan) through vigilant deportment (adab), as it is belonging - whether to a region, a town or city, an empire or nation. Spirit becomes the critical, motivating impetus for all that is, and all who are, Islamicate Cosmopolitan, most evident in contexts that are fluid, whether multilingual or multiethnic or both, rather than those that are monolingual and ethnically divided.
While academic labor remains the major window for the restive, resilient eruption of an Islamicate Cosmopolitan Spirit, that spirit also moves beyond the academy. In public discourse it requires monitoring and declaiming efforts to make cosmopolitanism a badge of pride solely for Western citizens. Muslim claimants to that mantle abound, their legacy extolled in the Islamicate Cosmopolitan Spirit.
