The Fastest Growing Muslim Population in the U.S.


There are almost 2,000 mosques, Muslim schools and Islamic centers in the U.S.  There are an estimated 1.2 billion Muslims worldwide and an estimated 6 million to 7 million in the U.S.

By most official measures, Latinos in the U.S. are considered to be the fastest-growing demographic. They are also the fastest-growing group of Muslims in America, according to organizations that cater to Hispanics converting to Islam. Although the statistics haven’t been widely tracked, there are an estimated 150,000 Islam converts among the Latino community in the U.S., reported the Press-Enterprise, a California newspaper.

Meanwhile, a new report was out last week stating the growing number of Muslims being admitted to the U.S.  The numbers are incredibly high.  Read about it.
