Islamic Modernism is a movement that has been described as "the first Muslim ideological response" [Note 1] attempting to reconcile Islamic faith with modern values such as nationalism , democracy , civil rights , rationality , equality , and progress. It was the first of several Islamic movements — including secularism , Islamism , and Salafism — that emerged in the middle of the 19th century in reaction to the rapid changes of the time, especially the onslaught of Western Civilization and colonialism on the Muslim world. The early Islamic Modernists al-Afghani and Muhammad Abdu used the term "salafiyya"  to refer to their attempt at renovation of Islamic thought,  and this "salafiyya movement" is often known in the West as "Islamic modernism," although it is very different from what is currently called the Salafi movement , which generally signifies "ideologies such as wahhabism ". Modernism differs from secularism in that it insists on the importance of religious faith in public life, and from Salafism or Islamism in that it embraces contemporary European institutions, social processes, and values. The origins of Salafism in the modernist "Salafi Movement" of Jamal al-Din al-Afghani and Muhammad Abduh are noted by many authors,     although others say Islamic Modernism only influenced contemporary Salafism.
