This book offers a new direction for the study of contemporary Islam by focusing on what being Muslim means in people's everyday lives. It complements existing studies by focusing not on mosque-going, activist and devout Muslims, but on those who are nominal believers, or who put their religion to work in 'unorthodox' ways. As well as offering fresh empirical studies of everyday lived Islam, the book offers a new approach which calls for the study of 'high' religion and everyday 'popular' religion in relation to one another.
