The U.S. Muslim population is expected to double by 2050, while 1 in 10 Europeans will be followers of the Islamic faith by mid-century. But the projections don’t stop there – by 2100, Muslims will outnumber Christians worldwide. Islam is currently the fastest-growing religion on Earth, largely due to higher fertility rates in Muslim families.
Trends indicate that the global Muslim population will grow an astounding 73 percent between 2010 and 2050. This soaring growth has led to unease in countries such as Nigeria, which has witnessed an expansion of Shari’a law as Muslim influence has increased along with its share of the population.
The numbers don’t lie: Islam is more popular than ever. Could it be the faith of the future?
