Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the world today. Consider these staggering statistics: In 1982, there were 450 million Muslims in the world, today there are approximately 1.5 billion! That means that 1 out of every 5 people alive today is a Muslim, making it the world’s second largest religion. There are more practicing Muslims in the U.S. than Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses combined. In 1990 there were thirty mosques in the United States. Today there are more than three thousand. On average one new mosque opens each week in the United States.
