Faithfully Urban : Pious Muslims in a German City Hardback
In the southern German city of Stuttgart lives a pious Muslim population that has merged with the local population to create a meaningful shared existence.
In this ethnographic account, the author introduces and examines the lives of ordinary residents, neighborhoods, and mosque communities to analyze moments and spaces where Muslims and non-Muslims engage with each other and accommodate their respective needs.
These accounts show that even in the face of resentment and discrimination, this pious population has indeed become an integral part of the urban community.
