Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. This is not fiction but
reality. This is not Muslim bias but based on hard-core evidence. Check out
the amazing facts and figures and see for yourself why Islam is the fastest
growing faith on the planet:
World Almanac and Book of facts 1935 and Readers Digest Almanac and Yearbook
"Among every four humans in the world, one of them is Muslim. Muslims have
increased by over 235 percent in the last fifty years up to nearly 1.6
billion. By comparison, Christians have increased by only 47 percent and
Jews have decreased by 4%. In the West, Islam is the second largest
religious group in France, Great Britain and USA."
The CIA World's Facts Book
"The total number of Muslims in 1996 was 1.4 billion which was 26% of the
world population. According to UN statistics Islam's annual growth in
1994-1995 was 6.40% compared to only 1.46% of Christianity. The total number
of Muslims in the world in 1998 was 1.6 billion (1, 678, 442,000)."

Islam is the world's fastest growing faith, a faith that abuts a number of
the world's political fault lines and a faith that does not draw a
distinction between the religious life and the political life.
Islam: Misunderstood Throughout The World
By: James A. Bill (professor of government and director of the Reves Center
for International Studies at the College of William and Mary in Virginia)
'..By the turn of the century, for the first time in history, the number of
Muslims (those who practice Islam) will have surpassed the number of
Christians in the world.
Islam is a monotheistic religion, civilization and way of life now practiced
by 1.5 billion people. Easily the world's fastest growing religion, Islam is
not confined to the Middle East. It is a truly universal force. More Muslims
live in America today than all the Presbyterians and Episcopalians put
together. There are more than 1,200 mosques in the United States and 1000
mosques in England, where the Muslim community has established its own
national parliament. There are more Muslims in Indonesia than in Egypt,
Iran, Iraq, Syria and Saudi Arabia put together. More live in Malaysia than
in Jordan, Lebanon and Kuwait combined. Nearly 20 million Muslims live in
Author Samuel Huntington predicts that Islam will overtake Christianity
early in the 21st century. By the year 2025, Islam will have 5% more
adherents than will Christianity.
The U.S. Center for World Mission estimated in 1997 that Christianity's
total number of adherents is growing at about 2.3% annually. This is
approximately equal to the growth rate of the world's population. Islam is
growing faster: about 2.9% and is thus increasing its market share. At this
rate, Islam would surpass Christianity as the world's main religion by 2023

Fastest-Growing Religion Often Misunderstood By Barr Seitz
"Experts agree Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in America. As
many as five million Muslims live in the United States and in the last five
years, the number of mosques in this country has increased from 843 to about
1,300. Most of the growth has come from immigration, but much of it is
homegrown. For many black Americans, Islam has become the religion of choice
and some one million have converted. "It is an American phenomenon, which
started in the ghettoes of the north," says Yvonne Haedad, a professor of
history of Islam and of Christian-Muslim Relations at Georgetown University.
"It is a response to racism.it is seen as the religion of liberation."

Influx of Muslim immigrants, refugees attracting Americans to Islam
BY JASON KEYSER .Associated Press Writer
"There are about 25,000 Muslims in Columbus. Nationwide there are from 6 to
8 million Muslims. Based on anecdotal accounts and interviews, the refugee
service estimates that nationwide there could be as many as 18,000 converts

"The nation's claim to be a Christian country is about to meet its first
challenge: the number of practicing Muslims is set to overtake Anglican
Christians.. There have also been a number of high-profile conversions to
Islam from Christianity. These include the British middleweight boxing
champion, who has changed his name to Hamdan; and Cat Stevens, the pop
musician, who calls himself Yusuf Islam.. Prince Charles courted controversy
when he reaffirmed his claim that when he succeeds the throne, he does not
wish to be the defender of only the Christian faith."

The rate of conversions has prompted predictions that Islam will rapidly
become an important religious force in this country. "Within the next 20
years the number of British converts will equal or overtake the immigrant
Muslim community that brought the faith here", says Rose Kendrick, a
religious education teacher at a Hull comprehensive and the author of a
textbook guide to the Koran. She says: "Islam is as much a world faith as is
Roman Catholicism. No one nationality claims it as its own". Islam is also
spreading fast on the continent and in America.
In the United States, women converts outnumber men by four to one, and in
Britain make up the bulk of the estimated 10, 000 to 20, 000 converts,
forming part of a Muslim community of 1.5 million.
Many of Britain's "New Muslims" are from middle-class backgrounds. Some say
the conversions are prompted by the rise of comparative religious education.
The British media, offering what Muslims describe as a relentless bad press
on all things Islamic, is also said to have helped. Westerners despairing of
their own society - rising in crime, family breakdown, drugs and alcoholism-
have come to admire the discipline and security of Islam. Many converts are
former Christians disillusioned by the uncertainty of the church and unhappy
with the concept of the Trinity and deification of Jesus.'
You wanted evidence, you got it. It should now be clear as light that Islam
is the fastest growing religion on the planet. Islam is growing at an
incredible speed because it is the religion of truth which offers you the
answers to the questions of life and gives you a complete code of life. Don't
just be amazes at the growth of Islam; study it, accept it and practice it.
