Because, like communism gained popular support, it is right no offering hope to the poor illiterate masses. It is using nationalism and religious links to uninte people that need something to unite under. Too bad, like communism, it isn't best for the people and will end in disaster.

This response is not appropriate, because even if you do not believe in this religion, you do not have to denigrate it.

I believe it's the fastest growing religion because of increased dawah opportunities with the media and because it makes sense. It is a very simple concept, believing sincerely that there is One God and Mohammed is the Last Messenger of God. You only have to utter this proclamation to become a Muslim, no other 'rituals' or obstacles to overcome. Most of my friends that have converted say that the more they read about Allah the more at peace they felt in their heart, knowing this life does not end here and we'll face our Lord and be questioned and there will be justice and peace for those God has Mercy upon.

I am not sure that it is the fastest growing religion in the world because how does this get measured? It is true that many Muslims have more children than they do in the non-Islamic nations which of course means more people who will follow the religion and this could of course account for the growth in the religion. The other thing is that the populations of most western countries would not find acceptable what is expected of Muslim women. This is not meant as a denigration of the religion but a fact of life in that the Islamic countries in many instances have not moved with the times.

it is because islam has very good teachings in it and if someone told others what islams teachings are actually then it would have spread even faster but now it is spreading because people are studying about islam on their own and are realising

people are studying because of the false controversies that a group of people are trying to create about islam,spreading all the wrong information but when ppl try to study on their own they are realising how good the religion is

I was not aware that it was the fastest growing religion in the world, but the fact does not surprise me. Islam is probably the most popular religion on earth at the moment, so it follows that it will grow at a faster pace than others. Most people adopt the religion of their parents and a larger population will produce a larger number of people for the next generation.

No body now days is obligated to consider certain religion, every man and every woman has his \her mind in his \her head everybody has to think what is better for him \for his family and for his community, any one who is trying to convince others that non natural thoughts are better is going to fail at the end, even if he succeded intially, wars against ideas and religions are great failures,the war against communism succeded because communism is against the natural human needs, any war against islam per se will not end in the same way , but may end in opposite to what was planned to , also may be because islam now is at the weak position many sympathize with it and got the chance to study it, and this is enough to to decide wehter it is of good ideas or not, i think the war against islam is going to strengthen islam rather than weakening it and people who are leading this war are helping islam rather than destroying it .

Islam means peace Islam is derived from the word'salaam' which means peace. It is a religion of peace whose fundamentals teach its followers to maintain and promote peace throughout the world. Thus every Muslim should be a fundamentalist i.e he should follow the fundamentals of religion of peace:Islam. He should be a terrorist only towards the antisocial elements in order to promote peace and justice in the society.

hahahaha, seems that Mcikie thinks that Islam is a Lie, You might never open this topic again, but it is my duty to post that Islam is the Best Relgion in the world. I have seen a lot of topics created by Christians that they dont believe in God, IF they dont believe in their God, then could we possibly think that it is the best Religion.

You are wrong there umer6945salman to say that Christians are starting discussions saying they don't believe in God because it is simply not true. No Christian will say that they do not believe in God and these discussions are started by people who do not believe in anything. That means they are are either athiests or agnostics but certainly not Christians.

One and formost reason for muslim populatioin boom is that they don't use contraceptives. It is haram. But it is not haram to keep four wives.
• United States
29 Dec 06
Im sorry but this information is not true. It is permissable to use contraceptives with conditions especially if it poses a harm. As far as fou wives, this is not something that Islam started. Many of the prophets had more then one wife and it was a common practice. When you mention a man can have 4 wives, there are also strict conditions with that, he cant just go and get four when he feels like it. At least you must have four wives in honor them (take full care of them and be kind to them)then to have one wife and three mistresses. ..I dont hear anyne saying anything about that! ANd here is a fact: there is a shortage of men, check the statistics.

Islam never allow fornication, but allow a legal marriage. If u r a wife, ur happy with ur husband going out with other women without ur knowledge?

hmm..thats a good question. I say the proof is in the pudding! The ONE God is going to make His religion fore front and upper most in the life of this world. Its as simple as that. Women and men lie, but numbers don't. the One God has control over everything and the one who who is intelligent will reflect on these numbers and try and find out what is attracting so many people to this beautiful religion.

yes islam is spreading rapidly all along the world.it is because it is a very good religion that gives all the people their rights.so i think that this is the major reason.

Because Islam is a complete way of life. It tells man about the purpose of his creation and existence, his ultimate destiny, his place among other creatures and more importantly, it provides him with guidance to lead a balanced and purposeful life. Unlike Christianity and other hypocritical religions, one cannot be born a Muslim as in a Muslim family. One must choose and decide and then practice Islam. Therefore, there is less hypocrisy. In Islam the emphasis is on the teachings and commandments of God. For example, God detests sodomy, so there is no place for homosexuals in Islam. God forbids infidelity, so there is a way, though difficult, to avoid infidelity.

it is the fastest because of its purity and truthness.islam contains the concept of sacrifice and unity.the rules are tough to follow and the path is hard still I believe that one must believe the concept of one god.
