To find out where Islam is growing has not been difficult to anticipate as answer is “everywhere”. Various reputed organizations have revealed astounding facts about the growth rate of Muslims in every corner of world. Latest study has shown that Islam has been the second fastest growing religion among various other prevailing communities.
Astonishing results have been found out by the statistical survey of UN, which highlight 6.40% of growth in Islam against1.46% growth in Christianity. One of the eye-awakening realities about Muslims’ growing percentage in the world’s population is the ratio of 1:5. It indicates the presence of one Muslim in a set of 5 humans on earth.
Islam is not only growing in an Asian region but surprisingly its elevation rate has been heightened in every region of world. In North America, believers of Islam have raised up to 25% since 1989, along with Africa, Asia, and Europe, where growth rate is 2.15%, 12.57%, and 142.35% respectively. Therefore, in Australia and Pacific region, Islam has gained 257.01% raise in believers.
Numerous research institutions, who are deliberately observing the impacts and religious trends on human societies, have reported 35% increase in Muslims’ community by 2030. It has been expecting to grow twice the annual growth percentage of 2010; approximately 1.5% rise is inevitable against non-Muslim population and 0.7% is foreseen annually in next two decades.
In USA, Muslims populace will be expected to ascend twice from 2.6 million in 2010 up to 6.2 million by 2030. Statistically, Muslims were 0.8% of the American population in 2010 that will increase to 1.7% of the total population in 2030. In 2009, facts were reported that number of immigrants in America was mostly seen from Pakistan and Bangladesh. Similarly, by 2030, these countries will remain on the top for the growing rate of immigrants in United States.
In 2010, Muslims percentage in the total population of Canada had been 2.8 % that will increase by 6.6% in 2030; nearly 2.7 million of the total Canada’s population. After United States, Argentina has been on the second position comprising of 1 million Muslims population currently.
On the other hand, in Europe, figures will continuously be raised up to 58.2 million by 2030 as compared to 44.1 million in 2010. So in 2030, Muslims will be 8% of the total population in Europe. France, Belgium, Russia, Bulgaria, Georgia, and Albania will also have the highest percentage of Muslims population by 2030 and the percentage will be elevated up to 10%.
It is pretty obvious from the afore mentioned statistics that Islam will gain more strength and rise in number of believers in coming years that will highly boost the percentage of Muslims in total world’s population.
