    Disillusion with the materialism/commercialism/capitalism of the Western world? Quite ironic considering that's what provided them with their status.

    Also of course, 'alternative lifestyles' are perceived to be trendy.

    i was born a muslim so i cant really answer why many people convert to it . Perhaps coz its very simple in nature , dont look at bin laden , saddam and confuse islam . Their views are very aggresive and not correct at all . The word "islam" means peace , no where in the quran ( our holy book ) does islam preach terrorism or violence . Its very critical of people who do .

    BTW jus incase u were interested the term Jihad refers to 4 different forms of fighting . I dont remember one of em rite now but the other 3 are

    fighting against satan
    Fighting if sumone is trying to being hostile to u and islam and no other peaceful matter is resolving the matter ( this is the most sever form and there are a lot of guidlines in the book on how to avoid such a scenario )

    and the one tht is most stressed on as the tru meaning of the term is struggle against oneself ( keeping faith strong , avoiding sins , speaking the truth always , being kind , avoiding things that are forbidden )

    the term jihad is only loosely translated as holy war ... its exact translation is "struggle "

    BTW i heard sumone saying that we (muslims) preach to kill jews and christians ... thts entirely untrue . We atually do beleive in Christ and Moses and all the prophets mentioned in the Bible and the other holy book ( i forget the name of the book of jews ) . We consider those too to be the words of god , but not complete works .

    Also tell me why it is the fastest growing Religion.

    I know Islam is the fastest growing religion. I am asking you on what you think is the fatest growing religion and why.
    Islam is the fatest growing religion on earth.

    BUT SO BLOODY WHAT?

    Most people are incurably stupid - the fact that Islam is the fastest growing religion shows how false it is - its popularity refutes it.

    There are many reasons.

    I should imagine the trend of those who are not of Islamic ancestry converting is fairly insignificant.
    Nope wrong, that isn’t to be judged by you.

    so anything popular has to be stupid . Are you qualified enough to decide that the followers are stupid ? You should not make comments like that unless u are ready to back them up with valid reason . Religious discrimination is much more dangerous than racism . Its no surprise the world is in turmoil . Jews hate muslims , muslims hate jews , some hate this some hate that .... its pretty fuked up ... if u really know the religion u would realise it preaches to be good to any person irrespective of his religion . sadly there are many muslims out there who dont realise this fact , and not just muslims , every religion i think preaches to be good , i know buddhism and christianity do , im sure judaism has sumthing like that too ...

    the religions of the world aren't stupid ... its jus the followers who dont really follow them

    In the modern era, picture this:

    Christianity:

    - Undergoing a meteoric decline (especially) in the western world, largely due to changing lifestyle patterns, which relegate religion to an almost peripheral activity for several people (who are descendents of believers). The collapse of Imperialism and the independence of former colonies has, to an extent, reduced the hinterland of Christianity.

    - Church populations are declining year on year.

    Islam:

    - A religion which is, perhaps, more reluctant to change than several branches of Christianity. (No, I'm not saying it's backwards and reactionary - before people start to attack me). In the western world, where attendance at places of worship for virtually all the major faiths is declining - Islam is actually on the rise.

    - Growing populations of Moslems in all major western nation states - UK, France, The Netherlands, Germany, Spain, USA, Canada etc.

    - Moslems are coming to dominate in Nigeria, and other African states (with high birthrates) where they were formerly subjugated.

    As Islam doesn’t change the Quran (holy book) but other religion(s) do change their holy book. For example I have heard a religion who change their holy book to suit the modern day society, so what the point of having a holy book if you are going to keep changing it just to suit the country or world and to keep up with the modernisation.
