Title : Muslim life in America

Description :
As its title suggests, the website 'Muslim Life in America' is a resource which depicts the experiences of the adherents of the Islamic faith in the USA. It contains interesting information on themes such as: family life; Muslim communities (e.g. patterns of immigration and where Muslims live; education (e.g. Muslim schools and teachers); varieties of worship (e.g. demographic facts, American mosques, prayer and observing Ramadan); and the world of work. The material on the site is taken from a booklet prepared by the US Department of State. The site contains a search engine and numerous photographs which help bring to life the issues discussed. This is not (nor is it intended to be) a scholarly site, but it provides an accessible and colourful introduction to Muslim life in a western country.
