At this time in the Islamic history when Muslims all around the world,  targeted by the anti Islamist, mosques martyred, the beauty of this religion still stands perfectly and will do so.

Pew says that Islam to become world’s most popular religion this century.

Islam is a religion, a way of life that inspires Muslims to try harder, reach farther and act in a manner that is pleasing to those around them and most importantly pleasing to their Creator.

The beauties of Islam are those things that are part of the religion and make Islam stand out.  Islam answers all of humankind’s eternal questions.

The Quran is God’s greatest gift to humanity – it is a book like no other, for it contains the answers to the mysteries of life.  It answers the questions and asks us to look beyond materialism and see that this life is little more than a transient stop on the way to everlasting life.  Islam gives a clear aim and purpose to life.

Islam is the fastest-growing religion and is set to overcome Christianity as the world’s most popular faith by the year 2100.

In 2010, there were around 1.6 billion Muslims in the world, the report , noting that the figure amounted to roughly 23 percent of the world’s population.

Islam is currently the world’s fastest growing religion and the second-largest after Christianity.

Christians roughly 31 percent of the global population in 2010, or about 2.2 billion.

By 2050, however, the number of followers of the world’s two largest religions may become equal.

“If current demographic trends continue, the number of Muslims is expected to exceed the number of Christians by the end of this century,” Pew says.

Muslim women across the globe have 3.1 children on average, compared to only 2.3 for all other groups.

The results also indicate that on average, followers of Islam are becoming younger – seven years younger than the median age of non-Muslims.

“As a result, a larger share of Muslims already are, or will soon be, at the point in their lives when they begin having children. This, combined with high fertility rates, will fuel Muslim population growth,” Pew says.

Pew says that “10% of all Europeans will be Muslims by 2050,” while Muslims in the US will make up 2.1 percent of the population by mid-century, “surpassing people who identify as Jewish on the basis of religion as the second-largest faith group in the country.”

American views on Islam tend to be split along party lines. Democrats give a more positive rating for Muslims and Islam (56), while republicans say they are very concerned.
