    Background: INTRODUCTION: In Yugoslavia, the Islamic faith is spreading as migrants move from the South. Recently, Moslem prayer meetings have begun in the northern city of Lubliana, the capital of Slovenia. About 30,000 Moslems now live here.

    SYNOPSIS: Lubliana, only 60 kilometres (24 miles) from the Italian border, is traditionally a Roman Catholic stronghold. One of Yugoslavia's three archbishops has his seat here, and a majority of the country's seven million Roman Catholics reside nearby and in neighbouring Croatia. It is also one of Yugoslavia's most prosperous cities.

    Now the city has a Moslem community, attracted by that prosperity. At present it meets in a private house, pending construction of a mosque. These people come from the southern provinces of Macedonia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina -- rural districts, governed by traditional Islamic codes. They are now settled in new jobs in the north, but have brought their old ways with them. Prayer sessions and meetings are regularly held.

    At present it is Ramadan, and Lubliana's Moslems fast from dawn to dusk. They also continue the search for a site for the mosque. Until that is built, they will crowd into this house for prayers.
