How many Muslims are there in the world?

At about 1.3 billion followers, Islam is the second most populous religion in the world. There are 50 per cent more Christians, but only about one per cent as many Jews. The Organization of the Islamic Conference has 57 members including both nations we associate with Islam – Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iraq – and many we don't think much about at all – Kazakhstan, Kirgyzstan, Turkmenistan – or at least didn't until recently. There are 15 countries in which Muslims make up almost 100 per cent of the population. Besides the few million living in the U.S. and the hundreds of thousands in Canada, Muslims populate most of a wide swathe of land across North Africa through the Middle East and into Asia. Indonesia, with over 170 million Muslims, is the nation with the highest population of Muslims. Though difficult to establish with certainty, even the population of China may be about 10 per cent.

umat Islam ramai, tapi ibarat buih, kekuatan tak ada, kerana menolak ajarannya, kepala otak dah mengerutu dengan sekular
