The journal exists since 2005. Within a decade, a great number of scholarly articles of prominent Russian and foreign scholars has been published in the journal aimed at an in-depth coverage of political, economic and cultural processes unfolded in the Muslim world heavily influenced by globalization. The founders of the edition offer the specialists dealing with the Muslim community at different levels, from local to global, an opportunity to express freely and fully their views. The journal has been publishing articles on the specifics of Muslim communities’ evolution in the countries, where Islam is a non-state religion, their institutional characteristics, the mechanisms of interaction with non-Muslim residents and governmental institutions. Considerable significance is attached to the study of the influence of Islamic cultural heritage on the development of Russian and European cultures, as well as the world’s other regional cultures. The analysis of international politics in Islamic countries and the activities of international regional and cross-regional governmental and non-governmental organizations is an inalienable part of the journal’s inquiry. This includes such organizations as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the Arab League, the Gulf Cooperation Council, etc.  The scholarly articles published in the compendium are commented within the scope of the same edition by the leaders of the Russian Muslim community, theologians and governmental officials.
