The project seeks to explore lived religious experiences by analyzing theological reasoning among diverse, committed, urban Muslim youth populations in three European contexts in Bosnia (Sarajevo), Sweden (Stockholm) and the UK (Edinburgh). The overarching and explorative question that guides this project is, how do young committed Muslims in parts of urban Europe reconcile and deal with increasingly hostile sociopolitical environment (increased Islamophobia etc.) with their understanding with the theological premise of omnipotent, omnibenevolent, and omniscient God?
