The Jadids (جديد "new" in Arabic) were Muslim Reformers within the Russian Empire in the late 19th century (1880s). They normally referred to themselves by the Turkic terms Taraqqiparvarlar (progressives) or simply Yäşlär/Yoshlar (Youth). Although their beliefs were manifold, one of their principle aims was the introduction of the usul ul-jadid or "new method" of teaching in the maktabs of the Empire, hence the term Jadidism normally used to describe their programme.
