From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

According to the U.S. Department of State, there are 1,384 Muslims living in Liechtenstein, which is about 4% of the general population.[1]

In 2004, the government established a working group for the better integration of members of the Muslim community into society. In cooperation with the national library, the working group has made accessible to the public a selection of books in Turkish as well as books on Islam.

At the working group's suggestion the government made a contribution of US$20,000 (25,000 Swiss francs) to the Muslim community in 2006.

Since 2001, the government has granted the Muslim community a residency permit for one imam, plus one short-term residency permit for an additional imam during Ramadan. The government follows a policy of routinely granting visas to the imams in exchange for the agreement of both the Turkish Association and the Islamic community to prevent religious diatribes by the imams or the spread of religious extremism.
