Issues of Identity, Religious Diversity, and Pluralism
This chapter focuses on the issues faced by Muslims in the United States. The American Muslim experience, like that of Christians and Jews before them, reflects struggles of faith and identity (integration versus assimilation), political participation, institution building, and acculturation. American Muslims have faced the challenge of constructing an American identity that incorporates faith and values within America's melting pot or, more recently, its multicultural society.
