Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document This article discusses the Muslim immigration to the United States and the establishment and growth of Islam in America. The author describes the initial growth period of Islam in North America involving the adaptation of Islamic practices to a new environment. 'This resulted in a distinct American influence on the mosque, its functions and administration; hence the role on the mosque in North America is closer to that of an 'ethnic' church than to mosques in the Arab world. Since the early 1970s, however, there has been a return to normative Islam, sometimes referred to as 'reform'. The reform movement had been stimulated by the recent influx of new immigrants who have revived more traditional Islamic practices in America' (p. 64). In addition to the above, this work also describes the establishment of several Islamic organizations and institutions, several of which are of student origin.
