The Rise Of Islam - Islam Is The Fastest Growing Religion On Earth


(Above) The voice of Islam rises, with 7 million muslims living in America, islam has become the country's third largest religion. It is estimated that within the next 10 years, there will be more Muslims than Jews in America.



(Above) The Muslim population has passed 7 million, In America, many mosques were filled to overflowing at Friday prayers and streets were filled with Muslims performing their prayers.(Middle) America is learning about Islam, (Below) An internet site called "Islam-World's Fastest Growing Religion" carries many items about the growth of Islam. (www.geocities.com/Pentagon/3016/fastest.htm)

"Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair admonition, and argue with them in the kindest way. Your Lord knows best who is misguided from His way. And He knows best who are guided." (Qur'an, 16: 125)

(Above) Interest in Islam increases in the US, Islam will spread in the US, (Middle) One of the frequently reported topics in the American press is about converts to Islam. An ABC report entitled "An American in Mecca" recounts Michael Wolfe's pilgrimage. His mother is Christian and his father is Jewish. (Below) The Chicago Tribune deals with the rise of Islam in an article called "Searching Americans Embrace the Logic behind the Teachings of Islam." (Left) One of the places where Islam is most discussed in America is in universities. In this Christian Science Monitor report, we see a meeting held at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), one of America's most prestigious universities.(Middle) As a result of the post-9/11 interest in Islam, Muslims were inundated as never before with questions about Islam. Newsday reported that a mosque on Long Island is overflowing with people interested in learning about Islam.(Right) In an ABC report on its Internet site shows images of Muslims performing their prayers on New York streets.

Above we see pictures of mosques in various states.

According to the CIA, there are 1.5 billion Muslims world-wide.

The table report source updated from The CIA World's Facts Book estimate of 2004 shows that by the year 2004, there are 1.5 billion Muslims world-wide. One of every 4.3 people in the world are Muslims. The statistic table by CIA however does not includes many other countries that have Muslims, but no available numbers, which should make the above total number of Muslims higher than 1,524,889,114. Islam annual growth rate (1994-1995) from U.N. is 6.40%.. This should make the total number of Muslims on Earth over 2.2 Billion by 2010.

The number of the total population has been taken from The CIA World's Facts Book which can be found at: http://www.odci.gov/cia/publications/factbook

The CIA World's Facts Book was used it to verify the total number of population in every country. But since it lacks the percentage of Muslims in each country, we used another statistic located at: http://www.flash.net/~royal/country.html
