This book offers a new direction for the study of contemporary Islam by focusing on what being Muslim means in people’s everyday lives. It complements existing studies by focusing not on mosque-going, activist Muslims, but on how people live out their faith in schools, workplaces and homes, and in dealing with problems of health, wellbeing and relationships. As well as offering fresh empirical studies of everyday lived Islam, the book offers a new approach which calls for the study of ’official’ religion and everyday ’tactical’ religion in relation to one another. It discusses what this involves, the methods it requires, and how it relates to existing work in Islamic Studies.

Review:

'Everyday Lived Islam in Europe is a fascinating and well-written book that brings together a number of cases dealing with the ways Muslims of different background practice religion in different settings and under different circumstances. The book ventures into a field in the study of Islam in Europe that has been neglected until now and builds on the postulate that theologies are not made exclusively in official venues by religious experts, but at a multiplicity of places and occasions and not only by experts. It is essential reading material for all those interested in how Islam takes shape in Europe.'Thijl Sunier, VU University Amsterdam, The Netherlands'Everyday Lived Islam in Europe represents opens a new chapter in the study of Muslim communities in Europe. Transcending stale debates about integration and "social cohesion," this unique collection of research essays provides a portrait of how Muslims in Europe in multiple and highly varied locales and lifeworlds create meaning in relation to religion. A must read for anyone seeking to understand the social reality of European Islam today.' Peter Mandaville, author of Global Political Islam
