This paper aims to examine previous studies on the Contemporary Islamic Studies of the Muslim region in the former Soviet Union, and in particular, the social function of Islam. The Muslim region in the former Soviet Union is the area where Muslims were in the majority or had an important significance in the USSR. The former Soviet Union Muslim region once constituted a part of the Soviet Union. These area can be equated to the Soviet era policy on Islam. Up to now, Western Scholars have payed attention to the "parallel Islamic theory." The theory is that non-governmental Islam is more vigorous than governmental Islam. However, anthropologists and sociologists have criticized this, because the true practice of faith cannot be grasped. Even now, their research is within the framework of the "parallel Islamic theory." While the prior research has had valuable outcomes, there are also some big challenges to overcome. For this, we need more research on governmental side Islam.
