Islam is a minority religion in Kenya, with Muslims representing 10.9 percent of the Kenyan population or approximately 5.2 million people. Muslims in Kenya apply Shafi’i jurisprudence (fiqh) in Muslim personal status matters. However, Kenya also has a sizable Hanafi community as well as Jafari, Zaydi and Ahmadi minority communities. Like many African countries, Kenya has a pluralistic legal system with several systems of law coexisting at the same time in the same jurisdiction among a common people.
