This chapter addresses the question Değirmenin suyu nereden geliyor? (Where does the water for the mill come from?) by focusing on the Gülen Movement's (GM) strategies to accumulate investment capital, to tax followers, to create and invest profits, and to increase its collective representation in Turkey's political economy. It begins with an overview of Islamic economics and the politics of development in the Turkish context, along with the effects of globalization on the Turkish economy. It then considers the GM's collection of investment capital via a rationalized system of religious donations and goes on to discuss the link between cultural, economic, and social activism in the GM's core and extended network. It also describes the GM's faith-inspired articulation of capitalist accumulation that has redefined the relationship between Islam, markets, and society in a new Turkey.

Keywords:   political economy, Gülen Movement, investment capital, profits, Turkey, Islamic economics, globalization, religious donations, social activism, Islam
