    Islam the fastest disintegrating religion in the world

    This is a statistic from a muslim source about what is happening in Africa alone
    the original is here and in arabic

    islam losing ground


    Linky Islamic ed foundation

    So all these conversion stories don't really give any indication of the # of muslims. As we know everyone whose family was muslim at one time is counted as being muslim unless they publicly come out and apostacize, not a wise move in most of the muslim world

    Apparently in Algeria more and more people are turning away from islam in reaction to the terror that the islamists have perpetrated in allahs name. Many of these people are Karbilya of whom there are around 1 million in France all of whom muslims count as french muslims, are they really.

    That actually fits in perfectly with al quidas tried and true saying "they love life while we love death"

    from hereconverting

    I've got a feeling that the global terror al-quida is unleashing to spread islam will end up being, if not the last then one of the last nails in the coffin of islam

    Well, to be nitpicky ...

    How would you know that Islam is the fastEST disintegrating religion in the world? You would need to find statistics for nearly every religion in the world to be able to claim that. Who knows, there might be small-scale local religions that are dying out, or maybe one of the other major religions might be quietly losing followers.

    Comparison of numbers needed before upgrading the status of this thread above 'Rambling'.

    Maybe they all took a national exam and these were the top 14,000? Who knows? Or maybe it's a convenient term without any objective standard that can be tossed around at one's convenience like a sack of stinky socks.

    lol, there is a very easy pattern to see
    in Christian countries, Islam is gaining influence
    in Muslim countries, Islam is losing influence
    its probably not gaining or losing many members, its just that all countries are becoming more multicultural

    Could it be the numbers are simply a reflection of Muslims leaving those states controlled by Muslim fundamentalists and are moving to free countries?
     
  17. Almost non-stop, people repeat the phrase "islam is the fastest growing religion" in the world, in the US, in the West, etc...
    I have found sites that refute that declaration; by pagans, Christians, ex-muslims, etc...
    Here is one, that includes a link to an arabic site on "al-Jazeera"

    From:
    http://www.faithfreedom.org/oped/sina31103.htm

    "praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved" Acts 2:47, (Acts of the Apostles, chapter 2: verse 47)

    P_M, I'll be praying & waiting for your name to appear here, don't be 'proud', be 'humble' before your God

    it all looks like self-praise for propaganda purposes to me (both sides)

    like in a tooth paste commercial or something .. "more people are switching to Floride Plus"! or "4 out of 5 experts agree!"

    PM, I'm not sure where you're going with all of this. I'm surprised that you spend all this time posting links to conversion stories without posting any real content.

    What sort of reaction do you expect from us, PM?

    Its very difficult to prove any religion is growing fastest in the world, theres so many countrys and so many relgions and you'd need to take all of them into account, as far as i was aware more people are becoming athiest than anything else and not going to church or anything.

    Thats a good link for overall statistics in britain, and if you can find something similar from five years ago then you'll see the change in religions in britain, only a few hundred countries to go then we'll have this case solved.....

    well, if you bother yourself and check only one link you will find real content ( the story about the ITALIAB AMBASSADOR to saudi arabia converting to Islam is breath-taking for example)...in conclusion, the real content is that ISLAM is the fastest growing religion on earth DESPITE the relentless attack from hater, liars and islamophobes.

    I am not expecting anything from you, I am not asking you to convert to islam, I am NOT pushing Islam down your throat as the pathetic christians do...if you show respect to Islam, you will have my unreserved respect, the reason I spent all this time posting the above links is to expose those pathetic christians who lie continuesly in order to defame Islam.
