But while Islam is currently the world’s second-largest religion (after Christianity), it is the fastest-growing major religion.Indeed, if current demographic trends continue, the number of Muslims is expected to exceed the number of Christians by the end of this century.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.Recent surveys show that most people in several countries with significant Muslim populations have an unfavorable view of ISIS, including virtually all respondents in Lebanon and 94% in Jordan.Relatively small shares say they see ISIS favorably.
Muslims are also the youngest (median age of 24 years old in 2015) of all major religious groups, seven years younger than the median age of non-Muslims.Indonesia is currently the country with the world’s largest Muslim population, but Pew Research Center projects that India will have that distinction by the year 2050 (while remaining a majority-Hindu country), with more than 300 million Muslims. This is based on an analysis of census statistics and data from a 2017 survey of U. Muslims, which was conducted in English as well as Arabic, Farsi and Urdu.The Muslim population in Europe also is growing; we project 10% of all Europeans will be Muslims by 2050. Based on the same analysis, Pew Research Center also estimates that there are 2.15 million Muslim adults in the country, and that a majority of them (58%) are immigrants.But Muslims around the world are almost universally united by a belief in one God and the Prophet Muhammad, and the practice of certain religious rituals, such as fasting during Ramadan, is widespread. For instance, a Pew Research Center survey of Muslims in 39 countries asked Muslims whether they want sharia law, a legal code based on the Quran and other Islamic scripture, to be the official law of the land in their country. Nearly all Muslims in Afghanistan (99%) and most in Iraq (91%) and Pakistan (84%) support sharia law as official law.
But in some other countries, especially in Eastern Europe and Central Asia – including Turkey (12%), Kazakhstan (10%) and Azerbaijan (8%) – relatively few favor the implementation of sharia law.Yet many facts about Muslims are not well known in some of these places, and most Americans – who live in a country with a relatively small Muslim population – have said they know little or nothing about Islam.
