The Islamic missionary movement Dawat-e Islami was founded in 1981 as the Barelwi version of Tablighi Jamaat. Both new religious movements of piety and self-improvement show to some extent characteristics comparable with the religious change promoted by Pentecostalisms. World religions have undergone a dramatic transformation during recent decades with consumers' preferences of new religious goods and services shaping the religious change. The modernity-specific tool kit of religious change that translates and reframes religious symbol-systems seems to be similar among different traditions of faith: Stressing "lay" leadership, new voluntarism, individual transformation and the increasing imperative to share one’s faith with "unbelievers", these re-traditionalized belief-systems are transformed into lived, experienced traditions. Tradition thus becomes an activity.
