About Bosnia

Bosnia is a mountainous Balkan state whose largest People Group, the Bosniak, are almost entirely Muslim. In the 7th Century Slavic peoples settled into the region now known as Bosnia and were converted to Islam by the Ottoman Turks in the 15th Century. Most Bosniaks are Sunni Muslim, although historically Sufism has also played a significant role among them. For many Bosniaks, Islamic identity has more to do with cultural roots than with religious beliefs. Even among most religious Bosniaks, there is a disdain for religious leaders exercising any influence over day-to-day life. Bosniaks are no different than other Muslims in that they view Islam from the foundation that is their culture.
