The issue of identity and integration of Muslim immigrants in Western countries is one of the most difficult challenges facing Western governments. Muslim immigrants face several difficulties in integrating into new societies due to differences in their customs and ways of life, especially as Western societies have become more rigid towards Arab and Islamic cultures and traditions.

This article attempts to approach the issue of identity as one of the fundamental and sensitive dimensions of any self-sustaining society that maintains its specificities. This is done by focusing on the idea of cultural and religious identity as representing the basic foundation for resilience and confronting the challenges of assimilation into other cultures, which possess a particular strength that can impose itself on contemporary life on many levels.
