This ethnographic study investigates for the first time in any significant depth the literacy practices associated with the religion of Islam as they are shaped, lived and experienced within a typical Muslim community in the United Kingdom. It seeks to counterbalance prevailing views on such practices which have often been misrepresented and misunderstood.
