Who says that Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world? A recent study released by the Pew Research Center confirms that Islam is the fastest-growing religion in the world.
According to the results of their study:
In the next half century or so, Christianity’s long reign as the world’s largest religion may come to an end, according to a just-released report that builds on Pew Research Center’s original population growth projections for religious groups. Indeed, Muslims will grow more than twice as fast as the overall world population between 2015 and 2060 and, in the second half of this century, will likely surpass Christians as the world’s largest religious group.
While the world’s population is projected to grow 32% in the coming decades, the number of Muslims is expected to increase by 70% – from 1.8 billion in 2015 to nearly 3 billion in 2060. In 2015, Muslims made up 24.1% of the global population. Forty-five years later, they are expected to make up more than three-in-ten of the world’s people (31.1%).
Some people say that Islam was just spread by the sword, and there is nobody who is willing to accept Islam as their religion of choice today. Others say that the current, rapid growth rate of Islam is due to a massive, Muslim “baby boom” around the world.
Here are a collection of links from reputed news services around the world which refutes such claims.
