Overview

Muslims are part of the religious and cultural landscape of Britain. As with other communities, they are affected by a number of social problems in all sections of society. The need is growing for Muslim chaplains in Further and Higher Education, the National Health Service (including hospices), social welfare, prisons, the Police, Armed Forces and Industry. An overview of the situation in Europe reveals a similar pattern. As Muslims become an integral entity within the social fabric, the development of strong institutional infrastructures become essential.

The development of specific courses which facilitate and train professionals working in the areas of chaplaincy and pastoral care are illustrated by the current situation of Muslim communities in the UK particularly, and in Europe generally. It is with this in mind that MIHE devised a course in the ‘Training of Muslim Chaplains’ in 2003 and has delivered successfully ever since. The aim is to contribute to the creation of sound and stable communities able to function harmoniously within the framework and institutions of wider society.
