The aim of this study is to identify the self-relationship and family attitudes and values correlation of professing Islam (practicing Muslims) and secular, ethnic Muslims in adolescence. The leading methods of this problem study are the theoretical analysis of scientific psychological literature as well as the empirical research method (testing), using techniques that allow to diagnose self-relationships, family attitudes and values. The experiment involved 100 people: 50 men religiously practicing Muslims, 50 - ethnic Muslims. The average age of the subjects is 18 - 23 years old. The study concludes that practitioners and ethnic Muslims have high self-relationship results in the components of "self-confidence", "self-esteem", "self-acceptance", "self-guidance." For religiously practicing Muslims there is no "internal conflict"; ethnic Muslims have high "internal conflict". The study of family attitudes revealed for both groups a strong focus on mainly joint activities in all areas of family life and a less loyal attitude to divorce, as well as for religiously practicing Muslims the importance of children's role in family life. Ethnic Muslims are characterized by personal identification with their spouse, social activity. The emotional and psychotherapeutic side of the family is important for them. And for practicing Muslims parent-educational attitude, personal identification with a spouse, and emotional-psychotherapeutic attitude are important. The study of terminal values has highlighted the importance of spiritual satisfaction, achievements, self-development for ethnic and practicing Muslims, as well as the importance of high material position for ethnic Muslims. Among life spheres, professional life and training are important for Muslims, for ethnic Muslims - the sphere of interests. The materials of this paper can be used by psychologists in working with students at Universities, Madrassas, Sunday and secondary schools. The relevance of the problem is due to the insufficient development of the correlation concept of self-relationship and family attitudes and values in adolescence (for example, ethnic and practicing Muslims). Despite there are many research options and methods for measuring it in this direction. The research materials are of practical value for psychological and pedagogical support in the educational process, as well as in the advisory work of young people who adhere to religious beliefs, observe the canons of Islam, or do not adhere to religious canons. The scientific novelty of the research problem and its originality is specified by the interest of self-consciousness, self-determination in adolescence, and family attitudes and values in the context of religious affiliation. Since juvenile period is a sensitive indicator of ongoing changes and determines the entire potential of the society development, the future of the society consequently depends greatly on the value foundation of the younger generation.
