Zu Fragen notwendiger Messung muslimischer Religiosität im Kontext pädagogischer Forschung
The current debate about Islam in German society shows tendencies of increasing polarisation between the Muslim minority and the majority society. A big challenge lies, therefore, in the support of a de-escalation process to maintain social peace in Germany. This could be achieved by contributing to a more differentiated perception of Muslims and their religious attitudes on the part of the scientific community, and more participation and social commitment on the part of Muslim individuals and Islamic communities. An important key in this context is the establishment of Islamic theology at German universities and Islamic religious education in state schools. But what is the starting point for this? How religious are Muslims in Germany (still)? Is there also a “break in tradition” among Muslims? Is a person’s own religiosity, which develops in the context of a family, reflected on and critically questioned, or only blindly adopted? Questions like this are of major educational relevance, because Islamic religious education at state-run schools and the teaching of Islamic theology at universities both ultimately depend on the conditional analysis of their addressees, since both forms of education depend on a self-critical assessment of the given conditions under which the entire educational process takes place. The main question of the research objective presented here is how the religious attitudes of Muslims in Germany are actually shaped and what consequences these processes have for society; especially regarding willingness on the part of young Muslims in Germany to be socially engaged.
