Islam, like any other religion, is legal to practice but is not widespread. There are even some leaders in power who heavily distrust proponents of Islam, mostly in Albania though.

Although we some of us Weroliuans practice Islam, Islam is discouraged and can only be done in private place, not in public.

Islam, while not illegal, is not welcome in Yakutikov. Nor is any religion outside of the national church.
Any religious organisations that are not apart of the Yakut Autocephalous Orthodox Church are heavily taxed and restricted.

Legal, although only 3% of the population practice it. Allowed to practice in public, and followers are protected under anti-discriminatory laws that cover all major religions.

Around 0.6% of Elisavetia's population practices Islam. Elisavetia's constitution guarantees freedom of religion, and there is a mosque in the capital Pavlovsk. Islamophobia in the country is not common, as there have been no Islamic Wahhabi terror attacks in the country, and most people are suspicious of Western foreign policy in the Middle East.

The Jewish and Muslim communities of Elisavetia are very close, due to their shared dietary laws and religious beliefs. The Muslim community are frequent consumers of Jewish shop and farming cooperatives, and in turn, many Jewish workers of those cooperatives helped finance the building of their mosque in 2010.

Ever since the 1956 Civil War & subsequent Revolution, Islam has been the official religion of Tebuh ever since the Islamic Republic was declared. Approximately 99% of Tebuhi profess belief in Islam, but other minority religions are still respected. Tebuh enforces shariah law for all practicing Muslims, and Islamic holidays are nationwide holidays. It is not uncommon to see people driving stop in the middle of the road when it is time for the five daily prayers.

Sunni Islam has the status of "registered minority religion" in South Zimenma and is practiced by roughly 20% of the population. As a registered minority religion, it reaps several benefits:

1. It has its own department in the Commissariat of Religious Affairs--the Subcommissariat of Islamic Affairs.
2. The Grand Mufti of Tractingrad is traditionally appointed by the Supreme Secretary (head of state) to serve as Deputy Commissar of Islamic Affairs, but this is not a legal requirement. Although it has never occurred in the past, it is entirely possible that a future Supreme Secretary might choose to appoint a different Muslim scholar, as the Central Government has no control over the appointment of the Grand Mufti, but does have control over the appointment of a Deputy Commissar.
3. According to the Constitution, the Grand Mufti of Tractingrad (the capital) is always an ex officio member of the People's Soviet, which is the lower chamber of the Supreme Soviet.
4. State funding is available for the construction and maintenance of Sunni Muslim mosques, though such mosques are not required to obtain/accept this funding in order to operate. Non-Sunni mosques are allowed, but the Central Government will not help with funding.
5. Sunni Muslims have access to an alternative court system for all civil matters (think Lebanon). In criminal cases, their clerics are allowed to advise secular courts when the accused or the victim is Muslim, but the cleric must be a Sunni. Shi'ites and other types of Muslims can access these legal services, but because of Sunni-Shia tensions will generally only do so for some civil cases to avoid secular courts.

In addition to this, there are two areas in which we've been uniquely impacted by Islam:

Western District. The semi-autonomous Western District is South Zimenma's only Muslim-majority oblast and shares a border with North Zimenma, its neofascist neighbor. North Zimenman-backed Zionist insurgents routinely attack Muslim villages in the Western District, and in the territories they control, Muslims are driven away or executed on site. Our security services have recently gained ground, with the terrorists only controlling 5% of the Western District at this point, but cross-border attacks are common.

Islamic Socialist Protectorate of Palestine. South Zimenma liberated Palestine from Zionist occupation on July 28, 2018 and established a protectorate there. Palestine is fully self-governing but temporarily relies on South Zimenma for defence and security. Palestine's state religion is Sunni Islam, and Sharia law is applied throughout the Protectorate on all residents, regardless of their religious affiliations, for all civil and most criminal cases.

not officially banned, but it has no legal protections so the exact status tends to vary by who is in power. while muslims are a large minority (roughly 10% of the population), they are generally treated with distrust by most others and tend to keep to themselves.

Historically, Islam was once the prominent religion of the Adyghe people, but when the Federal Monarchy was established after the Second Great War, it slowly became overshadowed by the re-emergence of our native pagan traditions. However, as Islam was adopted as a religion, it was integrated with said native traditions, and this allowed for a smooth and peaceful transition of religious control.

Today, about 12% of the population would explicitly identify as being Muslim over being followers of the native religion, while up to 25% identifies as at least being "culturally Muslim". Even when practiced from a pagan context, however, many Islamic influences remain in the native traditions as they are observed today. Islamic violence is a very minor problem, and is immediately stamped out.

Legal and tolerated. Freedom of religion is a constitutional guarantee.

Though the SDP, FDP, and Greens are very tolerant and accepting of things seen as foreign, the CDP is only begrudgingly so. The APP would force a values test upon followers of non-Christian faiths, with perhaps the exception of atheists. For reference: Alpenzell political parties.

Islam is not the state religion, Islam instead enjoys the same respect that is given to all other religions, as the nation is secular and does not enforce any religious belief. The nation has a history of respect for muslim nations, specifically Morocco with some for Iran, as the nation has a large amount of respect for Persia. The Constitution promises freedom of religion, and while the constitution specifically mentions that Catholic Christianity & Judaism are protected, Islam is also protected, Judaism and Catholic Christianity are just protected explicitly in the constitution. The nation is welcoming to Muslims, puts no limits on their religious attire (Hijabs, Burkas, etc), and food producers are required to mark products as Halal, and Kosher for that matter. The nation has welcome thousands of Muslim refugees and immigrants to the nation as well, with a high integration rate.

Sunni Islam is legal and may be practiced behind closed doors in licenced mosques with government supervision.

Shi'a Islam, Ibadhi Islam, Sufism, all other forms of Islam, and certain Sunni sects specified by law (e.g. Wahhabism, the Gülen movement) are banned.

Muslims, as with every other non-Bosonist religion, are called Une de ferereto, Californian for "One of the wrong faith". Unlike atheists, who are called crelieveter (non-believer) and often sent to labor camps, Muslims as with every other religion in California are tolerated. However, they must be a heightened tax, cannot attain positions of nobility, and don't enjoy the same full rights as Bosonist Californians.
