Muslim Population by State

The United States is a cherished home of religious freedom among its citizens. Enshrined in the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution is a promise that the religious liberty of Americans shall not be infringed, and people from around the world immigrate to the United States with that guarantee in mind. Of the various diverse religions practiced in the United States, Islam is one.

Islam is one of three Abrahamic Religions practiced around the globe, of which Christianity and Judaism are the other two. Diversity of belief within Islam is of the same kind of diversity that one finds in the numerous branches of Christianity, and like with Christianity, it’s difficult to notice unless one engages it directly. In spite of their sectarian nuances, Muslims all believe in a monotheistic faith—One God—that was revealed through the Prophet Muhammed.

Although the vast majority of religious people in the U.S. are Christians of numerous denominations, Christianity is far from being the only religion alive in the United States. In fact, the number of American Muslims increases every year, and two primary reasons account for this increase.

The first reason is that many Muslims immigrate to the United States in order to improve their opportunity for economic advancement and, often, when arriving from Middle Eastern countries, to flee war. The second reason is that many Muslims in the U.S. are young people between the ages of 18—30, so they have a higher than average fertility rate.
