God only knows that ! But i do believe that Islam is going to be the religion followed by majority people world wide sooner or later. all the misconceptions occur due to improper understanding of the scriptures. which religion preaches bad things or cruel things or KILLING OTHER PEOPLE ?

I was asking for clarification of Islam beliefs in relation to the questions put and commenting that with the attitude displayed towards women by Islamic men, then Allah would not be a female. Hope this clears up your query.

I do not think Islam will overcome all religion. Why? Because some people will always resist fitting just one mold and Islam does not satisfy my own spiritual needs. My ex husband committed to Islam after our divorce. It seems to suit him, however there is much in it I disagree with and I would never convert to Islam. I think it is growing in popularity because it has very set, clear guidelins and strong leadership that make those who seek religion find a haven that is easy to follow. Clear guidelines do that.

Coz islam is religion who bring peaceful in earth. The lessons in Islam so universal and many things that written in Koran (the Holly book of Islam) just reveal by scientist recently. And still more things inside there, not yet reveal by science.

The second-largest religion in the world after Christianity, Islam is also the fastest-growing religion. In the United States, for example, nearly 80 percent of the more than 1,200 mosques have been built in the past 12 years. Some scholars see an emerging Muslim renaissance as Islam takes root in many traditionally Christian communities. Islam has drawn converts from all walks of life, most notably African-Americans. Former NAACP President Benjamin Chavis, who joined the Nation of Islam recently, personifies the trend.

I am sorry but I couldnt stop myself from commenting on what I have been reading.... well I have one question... Is there a race going on to make any religion the most growing religion in the world? If Islam, or for that matter any other religion is being accepted by people in some parts of the world..does that mean that only that religion is good or better than all of those available today? does anyone know that most of the socially downtrodden people in India are converting to Buddhism...and I may add that in buddhism there is no concept of GOD at all...!! I believe in not using religion as a weapon to prove how good or bad one religion is vis-a-vis another one. The very act to prove that other's belief or path to reach GOD , to help community and society is worng and only my religion is good or the best...is very very immature... I believe this is not preached by any religion of the world.....

Exactly, and worse still when a religion, as the catholics themselves did in earlier days manipulated the supposed laws of their religion to gain power and wealth...as Islam is now! Buddhism...if I were to choose would definately rank very high!!

some say jesus is God. Some say Jesus is son of God. :) jesus(pbuhm) is only messenger of God. He is like Gautam Buddha, Moses, Abraham, David,and like Mohammad(pbuh).

I do not think that it is the fastest growing religion in the world. However where a man is allowed more than one wife, he will of course have more children who will be bought up in that faith. I have read all the responses and comments in here, and have to say that anyone who refers to others who do not share their religious faith as an 'infidel', really is not a charitable person.

My friend, in my views its not Islam which is growing, but its munafiqism which is growing fastest. U can see today's scenario.....more than 1.5 billion muslims, so many muslim countries, but not a single one which prefers to run itself on shariyah laws, ie the laws ALLAH want them to live by. And hypocricy doesnt stops here, those so called muslims parrot, recite, and make every possible scene about holy quran....but when it comes to follow, they simply look the other way and dont find the book's laws fit enough to follow. Interest has been declared haram no 1 by ALLAH....but u can urself see that all muslims countries are allowing interest on its soil and that too lawfully....need I give more reasons to prove that Islam is actually fastest shrinking religion on earth?

I disagree that Islam is the fastest growing religon in the world. You should really look at the LDS Church. Also known as the mormons. Last stat I heard they were in the top 4 religons of the world www.lds.org

Jesus Christ had told not to beleive any body who comes after Him.He led such a wonderful life full of purity and love. After Him a lustfull man who married 14 wives and among them two were just 9 year kids ,came and twisted God's words to his lustful conviniences and with out any spiritual standards proclaimed he is the last prophet. Lustful men, who wanted to enjoy sin followed him.Terrorists followed him.But the real GOD fearing people desern deep down in their hearts and know which is God's and which are devils.Thats the reason why God has given intelligence to human beings to choose the right thing.Some dont use.Some use them.The truth they will know one day on the day of Judgement.So think using your intelligence. Later it may be too late.Choosing the way of light or the way of darkness is upto your choice.All you require here is a strong rational practical thinking.Not a mere religious biased thinking.

My earlier questions were directed at wondering how a religion which practices those activities can hope to take control?? Any large selfendulging religion or civilization has crumbled at their own hands! This relating to the growth (or eventual fall) of Islam!
