Fastest growing religion in the world?

For 2050, the predictions are that robots will be doing all the work; even they will drive cars as well. And if this forecast stands true, many of those robot-controlled cars would stop and park at masjids and churches.

It is estimated that Islam and Christianity would be the two religions that would have the highest population.

Islam will become the fastest-growing religion with a population of 2.76 billion by 2050. This would be the one-third of world’s total projected population from almost nine billion people.


Christianity would also grow but not at the same rate as Islam. Therefore, Muslims are projected to nearly match Christians in both the number and share of the global population. Christians would comprise only thirty-one percent of the world’s population.

In the past decade the population has increased to one hundred and thirty-seven percent and out of that Christianity has increased by just forty-six percent, while Islam has increased by two-hundred and thirty-five percent. According to sources, it has been found that 100,000 people per year in America only, have converted to Islam.

This means that six out of every ten people will be Muslims or Christians by 2050 and this would happen first time in history that both religions will grow at an equal number.

These projections are based on the age of populations, migration, fertility, conversion patterns, and mortality rates. One can simply put it this way that Muslims are having bigger families with more members while transformations are prohibited in some Muslim countries and they are younger than believers of other religions.

More than 1 in 3 Muslims is younger than 15. This aspect connects with Muslim women having an average of three children, the highest figure of any religious group. In the future, if education and employment proportions grow, then those numbers could change.

Some of the related forecasts for 2050 are that Muslims will exceed Jews and become the largest non-Christian religion in the U.S. India will have the largest Muslim population in the world, passing Indonesia, but Hindus will hold the supremacy. More than ten percent of Europeans will be Muslim, while the figures of Christians in Europe will descent by a hundred million.

In the upcoming years, it is projected that one hundred and six million people would leave Christianity. The total number of countries with Christian majorities will drop to one hundred and fifty-one, from countries like Australia, the United Kingdom, the Republic of Macedonia, Benin, the Republic of Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Nigeria, New Zealand, France, and the Netherlands. Muslims are likely to make up more than fifty percent of the population in fifty-one countries.

Islam (/ˈɪslɑːm/;[A] Arabic: اَلْإِسْلَامُ‎, romanized: al-’Islām, [ɪsˈlaːm] (About this sound listens) “submission [to God]”) is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion teaching that Muhammad is a messenger of God.

It is the world’s second-largest religion with 1.9 billion followers or 24.9% of the world’s population, known as Muslims. Muslims make up a majority of the population in 51 countries.

Islam teaches that God (Allah) is One, Merciful, Eternal, Independent, All-Powerful, and Unique, and has guided humanity through prophets, revealed scriptures, and natural signs.

The primary scriptures of Islam are the Quran, believed to be the verbatim word of God, as well as the teachings and normative examples (called the sunnah, composed of accounts called hadith) of Muhammad (c. 570 – 632 CE).

Muslims believe that Islam is the complete and universal version of a primordial faith that was revealed many times before through prophets, including Adam, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus.

Muslims consider the Quran in Arabic to be the unaltered and final revelation of God. Like other Abrahamic religions, Islam also teaches a final judgment with the righteous rewarded in paradise and the unrighteous punished in hell.

Religious concepts and practices include the Five Pillars of Islam, which are obligatory acts of worship and following Islamic law (sharia), which touches on virtually every aspect of life and society, from banking and welfare to women’s environment. The cities of Mecca, Medina, and Jerusalem are home to the three holiest sites in Islam.

So Islam will become the fastest-growing religion with a population of 2.76 billion by 2050.
