Why is Islam the fastest growing religion? Why do people convert? what makes them “realize” Islam is true?
when do you predict Islam is going to be larger than Christianity?
Islam is growing around the world for several reasons. Here are some of the most pertinent factors that Muslim leaders acknowledge:
Financial support. A great deal of money is being poured into Arab missions around the world, especially in the united States. this money is being used to build mosques, create Islamic centers at major universities, and publish Islamic literature.
A universal religion. Islam claims to be a universal religion. Though it originated in Mecca, it claims to be for all people everywhere. Islam claims to know no barriers between races. Interestingly, though, the Shi’ites, Sunnis, and other Muslim sects disagree on key issues and divide from one another.
A simple religion. Islam has few requirements. It is a much simpler religion, Muslims claim, than Christianity. It contains no difficult doctrines like the Trinity and the two natures, divine and human, in one person of Christ. A person who recites the Islamic creed is a Muslim. A person who keeps the five pillars, ethical principles, of Islam is a good Muslim. A person who emulates the life of Muhammad, as recorded in Islamic tradition, the Hadith, will be a successful Muslim.
A comprehensive religion. Muslims say that Islam, unlike Christianity, encompasses all of life, political, economic, Judaical, social, moral, and religious. Christians believe a relationship with Christ affects one’s interactions in all these realms.
An easy-to-obey religion. Muslims say Islam is a much easier religion to obey than Christianity. Many of Christ’s teachings seem almost impossible to fulfill, for example, His requirements in the Sermon on the Mount. In contrast, the Koran’s commands are realistic, and the average person can obey them. Christians believe that though Christ ‘s commands are indeed loftier, the indwelling Holy Spirit empowers people to successfully live the Christian life.
A rational religion. Certain doctrines of Christianity do not make sense to Muslims. For example, the idea that one man can die for many people, or the idea that God cannot forgive people without sacrificing someone one a cross, is nonsensical to them. In contrast, Islam is a thinking man’s religion. It contains on irrational concepts as does Christianity. I can address these issue later if you send an email.
A brotherhood religion. Muslims all over the world follow the Muslim Hadith, traditions, which contain details on how Muhammad acted in various circumstances, so they have a sense of camaraderie and brotherhood few other religious groups experience.
Proselytizing. Muslims proselytize. They actively share their faith. They are commanded in the Koran to “invite, all, to the way of thy Lord with wisdom,” see Sura 16:125.
We often red that Islam i the fastest-growing religion. Not true. Christianity is the fastest-growing religion in the world today. Islam is second. While Islam grows mainly through reproduction, which is to say Muslims having large families, Christianity spreads through rapid conversion as well as natural increase. Islam has become the fastest-growing religion in Europe, which for more than a thousand years has been the home of Christianity. Catholic writer Hilaire Belloc wrote wrote in 1920 that “the faith is Europe and Europe is the faith.” Belloc was convinced that the future of Christianity lay in Europe.
Ironically, while Europe has moved away from Christianity, the Christian religion has been expanding its influence in Central and South America, in Africa, and in Asia. For the first time in history, Christianity has become a universal religion. It is in fact the only religion with global reach. Buddhism never established itself even in the land of its founding, India, although it found adherents in the cultures of Southern and Eastern Asia. Even though it has a few followers in the West, Buddhism remains a religion with, at best, a regional impact. Islam is vastly stringer, but even Islam is regional, with little or no sway in the United States, Canada, Central and South America, or Australia. By contrast, Christianity is a force on every continent and in every major region of the world, with the sole exception of the heartland of Islam, the Middle East.
Hi. I’m not a hater just wanna give my humble opinion. Perhaps Islam really growing faster than any other religion in the world, but growing faster will not make any religion “true”. It can be your true religion, but it may never be for someone else. Number is not an issue, even the world left 1% non Islam, these 1% of people may have their own belief which they believe is true. And don’t forget there are still a lot of free-thinker around the world. Religion itself should not question the trueness of other religion because I strongly believe that most of the known religion in the world will only lead people to the right path and to perform good deed 🙂
It is Islam Islam and Islam!
what ever people say it doesn’t matter to me!
I know lots of stupid peoples will thumbs me down, but i don’t care!
and you, u r asking why is Islam the most fastest growing religion, It is bcoz IT IS THE TRUE RELIGION!
i don’t care if someone thinks it a lie, i dont care if someone reports me, i dont care if my answer is deleted, i dont care if someone thinks this answer insults their religion, IAM NOT INSULTING ANY BODY OR ANY RELIGION! iam just telling the truth and i dont care if someone thinks it s a lie! and if someone dis agree with me then I WILL SHOW YOU PEOPLES IN THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT, INSHAALLAH, and this is an open challenge to you non believers, come to the right path before its too late!
Islam will grow. Islam shall prevail and there shall come a time when Islam will become the majority Insh Allah.
The reason why people accept Islam is because it is the truth.
Dear muslims :
Over the years, we tried to create humanitarian face from Islam
Hope for change and a better future
unfortunately all efforts led to the failure
islam ideology is inherently hospitalized for brutality
as we know, freedom is an undeniable logic and an unavoidable destination for the humanity so..
one day somebody’s gonna have to make a stand. one day somebody’s gonna have to say “enough”…
enough barbarism ..
enough Child abuse.
shall we play A game?
verses from the quran
إِنَّمَا جَزَاء الَّذِينَ يُحَارِبُونَ اللّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ وَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الأَرْضِ فَسَادًا أَن يُقَتَّلُواْ أَوْ يُصَلَّبُواْ أَوْ تُقَطَّعَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَأَرْجُلُهُم مِّنْ خِلافٍ أَوْ يُنفَوْاْ مِنَ الأَرْضِ ذَلِكَ لَهُمْ خِزْيٌ فِي الدُّنْيَا وَلَهُمْ فِي الآخِرَةِ عَذَابٌ عَظِيمٌ .. مائده/33
The reward of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive to create disorder in the land is only this that they be slain or crucified or their hands and their feet be cut off on alternate sides, or they be expelled from the land. That shall be a disgrace for them in this world, and in the Hereafter they shall have a great punishment
فَإِذا لَقِيتُمُ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا فَضَرْبَ الرِّقَابِ حَتَّى إِذَا أَثْخَنتُمُوهُمْ فَشُدُّوا الْوَثَاقَ فَإِمَّا مَنًّا بَعْدُ وَإِمَّا فِدَاء حَتَّى تَضَعَ الْحَرْبُ أَوْزَارَهَا ذَلِكَ وَلَوْ يَشَاءُ اللَّهُ لَانتَصَرَ مِنْهُمْ وَلَكِن لِّيَبْلُوَ بَعْضَكُم بِبَعْضٍ وَالَّذِينَ قُتِلُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَلَن يُضِلَّ أَعْمَالَهُمْ ..محمد/4
And when you meet e those who disbelieve, smite their necks; and, when you have overcome them, bind fast the fetters — then afterwards either release them as a favour or by taking ransom — until the war lays down its burdens. That is the ordinance. And if Allah had so pleased, He could have punished them Himself, but He has willed that He may try some of you by others. And those who are killed in the way of Allah — He will never render their works vain.
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ قَاتِلُواْ الَّذِينَ يَلُونَكُم مِّنَ الْكُفَّارِ وَلْيَجِدُواْ فِيكُمْ غِلْظَةً وَاعْلَمُواْ أَنَّ اللّهَ مَعَ الْمُتَّقِينَ ..توبه/123
O ye who believe! fight such of the disbelievers as are near to you and let them find savageryin you; and know that Allah is with the righteous
وَقَالَتِ الْيَهُودُ عُزَيْرٌ ابْنُ اللّهِ وَقَالَتْ النَّصَارَى الْمَسِيحُ ابْنُ اللّهِ ذَلِكَ قَوْلُهُم بِأَفْوَاهِهِمْ يُضَاهِؤُونَ قَوْلَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ مِن قَبْلُ قَاتَلَهُمُ اللّهُ أَنَّى يُؤْفَكُونَ” ..توبه/30
And the Jews say, Ezra is the son of Allah, and the Christians say, the Messiah is the son of Allah; that is what they say with their mouths. They imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before them. Allah’s curse be on them! How are they turned away!
“قَاتِلُواْ الَّذِينَ لاَ يُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ وَلاَ بِالْيَوْمِ الآخِرِ وَلاَ يُحَرِّمُونَ مَا حَرَّمَ اللّهُ وَرَسُولُهُ وَلاَ يَدِينُونَ دِينَ الْحَقِّ مِنَ الَّذِينَ أُوتُواْ الْكِتَابَ حَتَّى يُعْطُواْ الْجِزْيَةَ عَن يَدٍ وَهُمْ صَاغِرُونَ” ..توبه/29
Fight those from among the People of the Book who believe not in Allah, nor in the Last Day, nor hold as unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have declared to be unlawful, nor follow the true religion, until they pay the tax with their own hand and acknowledge their subjection.
“يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ إِنَّمَا الْمُشْرِكُونَ نَجَسٌ فَلاَ يَقْرَبُواْ الْمَسْجِدَ الْحَرَامَ بَعْدَ عَامِهِمْ هَذَا وَإِنْ خِفْتُمْ عَيْلَةً فَسَوْفَ يُغْنِيكُمُ اللّهُ مِن فَضْلِهِ إِن شَاء إِنَّ اللّهَ عَلِيمٌ حَكِيم “..توبه/28
O ye who believe! surely, the unbelievers are unclean. So they shall not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year of theirs. And if you fear poverty, Allah will enrich you out of His bounty, if He pleases. Surely, Allah is All-Knowing, Wise.
فَإِذَا انسَلَخَ الأَشْهُرُ الْحُرُمُ فَاقْتُلُواْ الْمُشْرِكِينَ حَيْثُ وَجَدتُّمُوهُمْ وَخُذُوهُمْ وَاحْصُرُوهُمْ وَاقْعُدُواْ لَهُمْ كُلَّ مَرْصَدٍ فَإِن تَابُواْ وَأَقَامُواْ الصَّلاَةَ وَآتَوُاْ الزَّكَاةَ فَخَلُّواْ سَبِيلَهُمْ إِنَّ اللّهَ غَفُورٌ رَّحِيمٌ ..توبه/5
And when the forbidden months have passed, kill the unbelievers wherever you find them and take them prisoners, and beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent and observe Prayer and pay the Zakat, then leave their way free. Surely, Allah is Most Forgiving, Merciful.
وَاللاَّتِي يَأْتِينَ الْفَاحِشَةَ مِن نِّسَآئِكُمْ فَاسْتَشْهِدُواْ عَلَيْهِنَّ أَرْبَعةً مِّنكُمْ فَإِن شَهِدُواْ فَأَمْسِكُوهُنَّ فِي الْبُيُوتِ حَتَّىَ يَتَوَفَّاهُنَّ الْمَوْتُ أَوْ يَجْعَلَ اللّهُ لَهُنَّ سَبِيلًا ..نساء/15
And those of your women who are guilty of lewdness — call to witness four of you against them; and if they bear witness, then confine them to the houses until death overtake them or Allah open for them a way.
وَاللَّذَانَ يَأْتِيَانِهَا مِنكُمْ فَآذُوهُمَا فَإِن تَابَا وَأَصْلَحَا فَأَعْرِضُواْ عَنْهُمَا إِنَّ اللّهَ كَانَ تَوَّابًا رَّحِيمًا ..نساء/16..
And if two men from among you are guilty of it, punish them both. And if they repent and amend, then leave them alone; surely, Allah is Oft-Returning with compassion and is Merciful.

Do you assume one day, islam will take over the world? Christianity has failed that noble undertaking quite miserably, and christians make up 30% to 33% of the world’s population while muslims make up only 19% to 21%. Do you honestly think that you lot are doing anything more than spinning your wheels, hooping and hollering like animals and getting your hijabs in a knot over a few new recruits? People convert to islam because they are ignorant. All religions are insane, but islam is especially retarded. It appeals to the poor, the oppressed, the poorly educated and the castaways. Look how popular it is among young black males in the prison system, fresh recruits for jihad and an outlet to feel powerful by oppressing women, because in the US especially, black males have limited power. Dumb assed women join islam because they hate themselves or enjoy a male ruling over them. Most women are born into islam and few ever learn a better life is out there. These kinds of idiots will not usher in a new world, lol. This crock of crap will self-destruct when it reaches it’s tipping point and the world is tired of it’s crap (Hello Sarkozy, Hello France!) and since “muslim nations” have little in the way of armaments, marine/navy, air force and piss poor militaries, all they have on their side is cowardly attacks on civilians…while infidel, jew and christian nations could eradicate your dirt holes out of existence if they so chose. The only thing most islamic nations have is oil and oil money that they foolishly spend on their pedo-homo sheiks to crap in gold toilets and personal beard groomers, obviously. On the contrary, islam is the proverbial fool that is about to rouse a sleeping beast. Enjoy it while it lasts.
what is Islam? the essentials of Islam? what Muslims recite/whisper in their prayers? Easy to read explanation in simple English: http://www.kamranshawl.com/islam.html
If Islam becomes larger than Christianity that helps prove the Bible.
Matthew 7:13-14 Jesus states that the narrow way which leadeth to life is FEW there be that find it.So,just because something becomes big and popular does NOT make it true.
No religion is true.
I think it might have something to do with the fact that Islam has the single most kick-*ss heaven. Being good in life = off the hook for eternity.
Maybe its bc unlike other religions it supports knowledge
Quran says seek for knowledge many times
