    World Muslim population by percentage (Pew Research Center, 2009) Islam is the world's second largest religion after Christianity. According to a 2010 study, Islam has 1.62 billion adherents, making up over 23% of the world population.

    Islam is the predominant religion in the Middle East, in Sahel, in the Horn of Africa and northern Africa, and in some parts of Asia. Large communities of Muslims are also found in China, the Balkans, and Russia. Other parts of the world host large Muslim immigrant communities; in Western Europe, for instance, Islam is the second largest religion after Christianity, where it represents 6% of the total population.

    According to the Pew Research Center in 2010 there were 49 Muslim-majority countries. Around 62% of the world's Muslims live in South and Southeast Asia, with over 1 billion adherents. The largest Muslim country is Indonesia, home to 12.7% of the world's Muslims, followed by Pakistan (11.0%), India (10.9%), and Bangladesh (9.2%). About 20% of Muslims live in Arab countries. In the Middle East, the non-Arab countries of Turkey and Iran are the largest Muslim-majority countries; in Africa, Egypt and Nigeria have the most populous Muslim communities.

    A study conducted by the Pew Research Center in 2010 and released January 2011 found that there are 1.62 billion Muslims around the world. The study found more Muslims in the United Kingdom than in Lebanon and more in China than in Syria.

    I don't think they are going away, anytime soon. Out of that list I would like to see how many are extremist. I still have a hard time believing that many people are crazed killers, willing to behead people.

    Everywhere you read, so many conflicts on Muslims. Islam is not a religion, Islam is a religion of peace. It goes on and on!

    I can only go by what I read and find in news articles. Which points to Islam being very violent, controlling, abusive to women & children. Pretty much abusive to anyone not following Islam.

    I still will never understand, why so many people kill other people, in the name of their God? Even Christians are guilty of that. I do know what Islam says to do to the infidels, shouldn't that just bring up a BIG RED FLAG to the Muslim people? How can a religion of peace ask you to brutally kill anyone?
