Problems a Muslim family face living in Britain.

Extracts from this essay...

Introduction

Problems a Muslim family face living in Britain A Muslim family living in Britain face many problems in their everyday life, either in work, school, or their lifestyle. A Muslim wanting work in Britain may find it difficult to find a job as their religion means they have to pray 5 times a day. This will no doubt affect their work and the company may find a Muslim a burden as an employee. Teenagers living in Britain will have an incredible amount of difficulty especially in their school lives. Muslim parents believe that their children should be educated in single sex schools as soon as the children reach puberty (single sex secondary schools).

Middle

Some ice creams, biscuits, pastries, meat pies, some tinned soups, cakes and cheeses are also not allowed as they could contain fat from an animal that has not been killed in the Muslim way (one stroke of a very sharp knife as "Allahu Akbar" - God is great, is said 3 times) This will be increasingly difficult for a Muslim family living in a non- Muslim part of Britain as they have to go to special "halal" butchers and supermarkets. Smoking is not classed "Haram" but is discouraged because it harms the body and Muslims believe that it is wrong to harm anything Allah created. Muslim teenagers may find this difficult if they have non-Muslim friends who smoke and they might be pressured into smoking as well.

Conclusion

A seven year old boy living in Britain and most probably attending a mixed sex school may face problems praying 5 times per day .Bullying may also be a big problem in school as the way he would dress may cause bullying especially in a non-Muslim region. Teenagers may find relationships a major problem in their life as cross-religion relationships are not encouraged. A grandma who lives in Britain will not have as many problems as a teenager will have. The problems that will most likely face her are food and if it is halal or not. The grandma may be the strictest in the house as she is more knowledgeable and can assist in the Muslim faith and following of the religion.
