This book presents Islam as a lived religion through observation and discussion of how Muslims from a variety of countries, traditions and views practice their religion. It conveys the experiences of researchers from different disciplinary backgrounds and demonstrates the dynamic and heterogeneous world of Islam. The fascinating case studies range from Turkey, Egypt, Morocco and Lebanon to the UK, USA, Australia and Indonesia, and cover topics such as music, art, education, law, gender and sexuality. Together they will help students understand how research into religious practice is carried out, and what issues and challenges arise.

Review:

"These lively narratives and reflections reflect the diversity and complexity of Islam as a lived religious tradition. The multidisciplinary perspectives represented vividly reveal the process and experience of studying Muslim religious life and practice. Studying Islam in Practice will greatly enrich students’ understanding of Islam as lived religion and the ways in which Islamic studies scholarship is produced and experienced by scholars in a variety of disciplines." - Karen G. Ruffle, University of Toronto, Canada


"For a performative religion such as Islam, it is all the more important to get a sense of how Muslims practice, live, and experience their religion. This varied edited volume really offers the reader a concrete sense of what it means to be Muslim." - Carool Kersten, King’s College London, UK
