Muslims first entered the UK in the 16th Century and have been an integral part of Britain and its history much longer than can be imagined. Today, the Muslim population are almost all people who immigrated to Britain in the mid 20th century or their descendants. The last Census results of 2011 revealed that Muslims make approximately 3 million of the population, almost half of them women. Some may wonder how Muslims, especially women maintain their identity while seeking to succeed in Britain. Many misconceptions are drawn from some media reports of isolated incidents but only a Muslim woman who has grown up, educated, worked and spent her life in the UK is more able to answer such questions.
