Even now if I am not in the house, if you see my daughter she’s going to respect and welcome you and ask you for tea. (Tariq’s mother) ‘Respect’ (izzat) t was a key term that arose again and again in this context (and has also been discussed extensively elsewhere; see for example Shaw, 2000; Husain and O’Brien, 2001). The idea of showing respect for one’s elders, for one’s family hierarchy, and for one’s peers, appeared to symbolize much that was desirable about ‘traditional’ South Asian Muslim practices.

I like, I like, I like doing stuff with my religion.
Maintaining South Asian-ness but only being moderately religious characterized Rubina’s and Habiba’s families, and to some extent, Najma’s, Mehmood’s, and Munir’s. These families maintained many South Asian cultural practices, for example in terms of dress, food and language. However, religion was relatively less salient, prayer within the home was not systematically observed, and children often found it difﬁcult to express how or why religion was important. Fathers’ roles were not as strongly felt as in the previous group of families.
