Germany is part of the European Union and has taken pivotal roles among the other Members States. Germany faces trend as an immigrant country which currently more than ten per cent of population. More than 20 per cent of immigrant in Germany has background Turkey as ethnic origin. More than 85 per cent immigrant with Turkey background has affiliated with Islam as religion. Nowadays Germany has largest Muslim population in Western Europe after France. The active participation in society’s affairs is one of the key elements of integration and should be accompanied by legal equality in the religious sector, the relationship between the state and the civil society is pivotal. Feminism is one of paradigm in the European Union and in the Member States scholarship. Moreover, woman has special position on Islamic view. Nowadays the term Islamic feminism is uprising around the globe. The important question that becomes research question is does Islamic feminism help in the debate for integration? To what extend? It is most important as a basic and fundamental research to comprehensive understanding the Muslim living in Germany. For answering this research question, I tend to make a hypothesis that Islamic feminism help in debate for integration which 21st century is the time of transmission the concept of Islamic feminism which is connected with the proposal to support integration process in the European Union and in the Member States towards good governance system. This can be proven by active participation of women in Germany Islamic organization. The participation aims to increase capacity development of Muslim women. This participation also arises integration awareness that can be described by some patterns which divided based on data from an empirical research using sequential exploratory method.
