Introduction to Islam and the Muslim Culture


Understanding diverse cultures is becoming increasingly important as we are increasingly living in a global village which consists of people from diverse linguistic, religious and cultural backgrounds. Muslims represent the largest faith group after Christianity in Britain and also globally. Understanding Islam and the Muslim culture will help those working within Muslim communities to understand Muslims, their religion and their cultures better.



Many people are now familiar with stereotypes such as Islamic terrorists, Oppressed Muslim women, Jihad against the west, forced marriages, honour killings, women forced to wear the veil and more.
