Despite or because of the fact that Muslims have been only a tiny minority (though precise data are not available, it can be safely assumed that at no time in history did the Muslim population of the GDL exceed 100,000) of the citizenry of the GDL, they enjoyed almost all rights and freedoms that their Christian fellow citizens did. Though over time Lithuanian Tatars lost their mother tongue, they retained their religion and survived as a distinct ethno-cultural yet well integrated group. Today the Lithuanian state recognizes Islam (albeit only in its Sunni Hanafi rite) as one of the nine traditional confessions in Lithuania (Parliament 1995).
Lt forum, the ways religious knowledge has been and in fact continues (in the recent avatars of the forum) to be built and sought among Lithuanian converts to Islam, especially on an intracommunal basis. Furthermore, as sharing of knowledge inevitably involves those giving and receiving it, it is sought to expose nascent internal authority structures and hierarchies within this “online community”. In a direct relation to this, the contents (nature and quality) of the (often “negotiated”) religious knowledge is also addressed in the chapter.
