Summary

Summary

Due to population growth, missionary endeavors and migration, about 85 percent of the world's Muslim population lives outside the Arab world today, and the number of Muslims in non-Arab nations is rapidly increasing. This volume focuses on the contemporary situation while also providing historical background of the expansion and characteristics of Islam in many non-Arab countries in Africa, Asia, Oceania, Europe and the Americas.
