Abstract [sv]

Syftet med denna uppsats är att belysa hur individer med muslimsk tro ser på sin egen livssituation i det svenska samhället, utifrån religionsutövning, familj, synen på heder, det egna ansvaret och kontroll. I kapitlet om tidigare forskning belyses faktorer som islam i Sverige och islamofobi för att skapa en förståelse för informanternas situation i det svenska samhället. Studiens empiriska material har samlats in genom kvalitativa intervjuer med sammanlagt tretton individer som är aktiva i och regelbundet besöker muslimska samfund. Materialet har samlats in genom gruppintervjuer. Då studien ämnar belysa individernas egna upplevelser har metod och teori förankrats i det fenomenologiska perspektivet. I analysavsnittet framkommer att informanterna upplevde ett visst utanförskap och att islam som religion ofta missförstås i det svenska samhället. Vidare framkom även att det finns tydliga motsättningar mellan muslimska normer och svenska sekulariserade normer och att det ofta är i dessa situationer som informanterna anser sig ifrågasatta.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this essay is to show how individuals with Muslim belief see their own life situations in the Swedish society. Another aim is to illustrate how these individuals reason about their life according to family, religion, honor, control and personal responsibility. In the chapter regarding previous research factors such as "Islam in Sweden" and islamophobia are illustrated to be able to further understand the informants situation and point of view in the Swedish society. The empirical material of the study has been collected by qualitative interviews with in total thirteen individuals who are active in, and frequently visit Muslim communities. The material has been collected via group-interviews. Since this study aims to illuminate the individuals own opinions, sections such as method and theory have been deeply rooted in the phenomenological perspective. The results show that informants felt excluded and that the Swedish community often misunderstod Islam as a religion. The results also indicate the obvious oppositions between "Muslim values" and Swedish secularized values. The study also confirms that these types of situations are when the informants felt the most questioned.
