The difficulty of integrating Islam into the legal order

Like other religious communities, Islam has religious freedom and enjoys the principle of religious equality. Based on the principle of the right to religious freedom, Muslims went before the courts and gained the right to ritual slaughter. In several domains (religious instruction, status of corporation), religious laws in Germany presuppose that the religious community is organised coherently. With only a minority of Muslims being formally organised, in many different groups, the integration of Islam into Germany’s legal order is at a considerable disadvantage.
