Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an up-to-date account of the situation of Muslims in Slovenia. Slovenia is a secular state. The 1991 Constitution provides inter alia for freedom of conscience and for the separation of the state and religious communities. The Islamic Community in the Republic of Slovenia Islamska skupnost v Republiki Sloveniji headed by Mufti Dr Nedžad Grabus, is the main religious organisation that represents Islam, employs imams and organises the religious life of nearly all Slovenia's Muslims through 15 local chapters and two smaller congregations. Family law is secular, and a valid marriage can only be performed by a public registrar in a secular ceremony. Interreligious dialogue and cooperation takes place on an ad hoc basis. The "Islamic Culture Days" in Maribor, initiated by the Faculty of Philosophy, had a rich and varied programme, including performances by visiting groups of Bosnian dervishes and Iranian zurkhaneh practitioners.
