Population Growth

Today Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. According to population estimates there are between 1.3-1.6 billion Muslims worldwide equal to approximately 25 percent of the entire world population.

The Muslim population of the United States has increased at a rapid pace since the 1960’s. Growth has been driven predominantly by rising immigration, increased birthrates, and widespread conversion efforts.

Of the 1,200 mosques in the United States nearly 80 percent have been built in the past 12 years. Fore example, in 2005, 96,000 immigrants from Islamic countries became permanent legal residents of the United States.

Many Muslims are immigrating to the U.S. precisely to live in a society with western freedoms uncommon to residents in the Arab world.
