Population of Muslims around the world

Population of Muslims around the world

Islam happens to be the second largest and widely practiced religion in the world and it is also one of the fastest growing religions. Currently, there are over 1.7 billion Islamic followers in the world. The religion founded by Prophet Muhammad is based on the holy Quran. Followers of Islam are called Muslims.

It is believed according to history that the practice of Islam began in Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia during the early 7th century AD. Around that time, Prophet Muhammad began to share the message of Islam and thereby gathered many followers and today we see some of his followers have written down his revelations in the Holy Quran.

After the death of Prophet Muhammad, the Islamic religion began to spread like wildfire to different parts of the world. Today, we will be looking at the countries with the highest number of Islam in the world.

    Islam was never founded by prophet Muhammad but God Himself.
    Prophet Adam was a Muslim and all other prophet but prophet Muhammad came to Amend & reform it that is why he was called Sealed of the Prophet..
