Islam by country

World Muslim population by percentage (Pew Research Center, 2014).

Muslims constitute the world's second largest religious group. According to a 2010 study and released January 2011,[1][2] Islam has 1.6 billion adherents, making up over 23% of the world population.[3][4][5] Most Muslims are of two denominations: Sunni (75–93.5%)[6] or Shia (6.6–20%).[7] Ahmadis represent about 1% of the Muslim population.[8]

Islam is the dominant religion in the Middle East, North Africa, the Horn of Africa, the Sahel,[1][9][10][11] and some parts of Asia.[12] Large communities of Muslims are also found in China, the Balkans, India, and Russia.[1][13] 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.[14]

According to the Pew Research Center in 2010 there were 50 Muslim-majority countries.[15][16] Around 62% of the world's Muslims live in South and Southeast Asia, with over 1 billion adherents.[17] The largest Muslim population in a country is in Indonesia, a nation home to 12.7% of the world's Muslims, followed by Pakistan (11.0%), India (10.9%), and Bangladesh (9.2%).[1][18] About 20% of Muslims live in Arab countries.[19] 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.[1][18] The study found more Muslims in the United Kingdom than in Lebanon and more in China than in Syria.[1]

    According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, as of mid-2002, there were 376,453,000 Christians, 329,869,000 Muslims and 98,734,000 people who practiced traditional religions in Africa. Ian S. Markham, (A World Religions Reader. Cambridge, MA: Blackwell Publishers, 1996.) is cited by Morehouse University as giving the mid-1990s figure of 278,250,800 Muslims in Africa, but still as 40.8% of the total population. These numbers are estimates, and remain a matter of conjecture. See Amadu Jacky Kaba. The spread of Christianity and Islam in Africa: a survey and analysis of the numbers and percentages of Christians, Muslims and those who practice indigenous religions. The Western Journal of Black Studies, Vol 29, Number 2, June 2005. Discusses the estimations of various almanacs and encyclopedium, placing Britannica's estimate as the most agreed figure. Notes the figure presented at the World Christian Encyclopedia, summarized here, as being an outlier. On rates of growth, Islam and Pentecostal Christianity are highest, see: The List: The World’s Fastest-Growing Religions, Foreign Policy, May 2007.
