Muftis, Fatwas and Muslims in the UK

A study of Islamic legal advice.

The Centre’s director, Professor Sophie Gilliat-Ray, is co-investigator on a study of religious advice in Britain. The project, Muftis, Fatwas, and Muslims in the UK – A Study of Islamic Legal Advice, examined the people who make religious judgements in Britain and the context in which their advice is sought, given and interpreted.

The project was led by Professor Robert Gleave of the University of Exeter, and supported by the GW4 Consortium, drawing on expertise and resources from Cardiff University, Exeter, Bristol and Bath.
