The Muslim society in Kenya is far from being monolithic, whether cultural, social or political. It is therefore imperative that thoughts and insights of each aspect of this heterogeneity play a contributing role in the debate and discourses of issues that affect all Muslims in Kenya. This report projects the mosque as an institution playing a unique role and vital role in the Muslim communities of Kenya and its findings gathered from the opinions of mosque participants in Kenya provide some useful insights on Muslim life and presents a mirror image of Muslim opinions and experiences. Its unique portrayal of the centrality of the opinions of mosque participants is important and essential for Muslim leaders, policy makers and the public. I am confident that this initial study of Muslim opinions contributes greatly to the goal of understanding Muslim concerns on the state, religion, politics, economy and social developments.
