« Trouve ta mosquée » : formation d’une « communauté de projet » par l’édification de lieux de culte musulmans visibles en Ile-de-France, préalable d’une communauté élargie dans l’espace public français ?

Abstract : Over the last few years, many mosques have appeared in France’s Ile-de-France region, answering to a serious lack of worshipping space for Muslim believers. But they have done more than merely answer a lack: they have given Islam a visible presence in the city and offer a range of activities beyond worship. Cultural and social activities make the mosque ‘central’ in the lives of believers. This centrality stems from the fact that the associations that set up and run the mosque rely on volunteers, thereby creating a web of local support that goes to make up a ‘community project’. The strength that individual mosques provide Muslims on a local level contrasts very strongly with the very partial, imperfect and ineffective representation that exists at a national level. This two-tier nature of Islam in France echoes the desire of civil society as a whole to take its fate into its own hands.
