Abstract

This study was commissioned by The Challenging Racism Project of Western Sydney University (WSU) and the Islamic Sciences and Research Academy Australia (ISRA) affiliated with Charles Sturt University (CSU) to investigate the experiences and perceptions of ordinary everyday Muslims in Sydney and whether the perceptions of incompatibility and disaffection of Muslims are true, and whether this affects participation in Australian society. There has been a great deal of scholarship about Muslims living in western societies, but too much of that research has focused on the difficulties which some Muslims experience, such as the challenges that some youth face. Researchers and political commentators have outlined the current difficulties of Muslims living in western countries.
