From May 5 to June 17, 2016, Zogby Research Services surveyed more than 15,000 Muslim citizens in seven Arab countries in an effort to understand their attitudes toward religion. We questioned them about their personal religious behavior, their sources of religious instruction and guidance, and the role that religion plays in their lives and the world around them. Then, in November of 2016, we re-interviewed 800 of the original respondents, randomly distributed across the populations of all seven countries, to more closely examine their attitudes toward modernity and their understanding of the role that religious preachers and scholars play in their lives.
