Think you can recognise a Muslim by dress or nationality?
Nearly one-fourth of the world’s population is Muslim. And although some people mistakenly think that all Muslims are Arab (or vice versa), Arabs makeup but 18% of the world’s Muslim population. Muslims are found everywhere from West Africa, East Europe, China and the Philippines, and they are building a rising presence in the West. Muslims arrive in all races and colours, are found in all professions and walks of life, and have pulled in significant contributions to every area of human endeavour since the origin of Islam. From science and mathematics to art and humanities.
