Professor Yasir Suleiman CBE, FRSE, Leader, writes, "This report represents the collective thinking of a group of British Muslims in the second phase of ‘Contextualising Islam in Britain’: a project that began in 2008. The first phase culminated in our report Contextualising Islam in Britain: Exploratory Perspectives, published in October 2009. In this first report, the project participants set out to answer a central question: what does it mean to live faithfully as a Muslim in Britain today? They did so by considering Muslim views in relation to secularism and the secular nation state, citizenship as a form of political and civic engagement, pluralism, human rights and the Islamic Sharia as a path of moral living.

The present report sets out to answer the same question and to build on the findings of its predecessor. However, it does so by engaging with a new set of issues that impact on the following areas of Muslim belief and practice (appended as questions at the end of this report): (1) the individual and the community, (2) gender: equality, identity and sexuality, (3) education, and (4) wider society and the common good.
