This is a great question. Currently scholar estimate that there are around two billion Muslims in the world today. This is the second largest religion in the world next to Christianity.

As for concentration of Muslims, there are three areas in the world where most Muslims are. Islam is the predominant religion in the Middle East, Northern Africa and the Horn of Africa. This, however, does not tell the whole story. The reason for this is that certain unexpected nations actually have the greatest number of Muslims.

This might be surprising, but the country with the greatest number of Muslims is Indonesia. According to the most recent polls, Indonesia had a little over 200,000,000 Muslims.  That is a huge number. The countries that come next are: Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

Finally, it should be stated that Islam is one of the fast growing religions.
