One important implication that arises from the development of the Internet in contemporary Muslim society is the emergence of Islamic learning practice on the Internet. The abundance of Islamic information and knowledge on the Internet not only raises new trends in Islamic learning practice but also creates other broader sociocultural practices. Using a digital religion perspective, this chapter argues that the practice of Islamic learning on the Internet is not merely the practice of studying Islam but also implies three broader sociocultural phenomena: first, Islamic learning practice is a form of religious engagement since the Internet has enabled to continue to practice according to their teachings; second, Islamic learning practice as an expression of their Islamic identity; and third, Islamic learning as part of their effort to maintain Islamic networks in a global context.
