A significant portion of today’s refugee population is either practicing or ethnically Muslim. Because the refugee experience can be very stressful and taxing, many refugees turn to religion as a coping tactic, a resource that informs both one’s general perspective on life and the development of coping strategies. Muslims draw specific coping strategies from their adherence to the Holy Qur’an and other Islamic teachings and practices.This research proposal aims to explore and describe the unique coping strategies that individuals develops and use throughout the Muslim refugee experience.
