Muslims could become Europe's dominant population
Source: AJP and Agencies
While church attendance in Europe is continuing to decline, the level of
Muslim religious participation and the Muslim population itself is
exploding, according to an article on CNSNews.com.
Recent surveys show that church attendance in Western Europe is dropping
According to a 2005 survey by Christian Research, a UK think tank, only 6.3%
of the British population attended Christian services on a weekly basis.
The research group also suggested that around 4,000 churches will close over
the next 15 years, being sold off or rehabilitated for other uses.
Meanwhile, experts say more European Muslims are becoming more devout, going
to mosques and learning more about their religion.
In recent years, young European Muslims returned to the faith which their
parents observed only sporadically, according to the CNSNews article.
Although Muslims only make up around 3% of Britain's population, Christian
Research says that in 35 years there will be twice as many Muslims in
mosques on Friday as there are Christians in churches on Sunday.
A 2004 ICM poll showed that 51% of the 500 British Muslims surveyed prayed
In November, a study by the Spanish magazine Alba said that more mosques and
Islamic centers have been built in France than churches over the last
century, with over 4,000 mosques currently serving the largest Muslim
population in Europe.
Tens of thousands of Muslims immigrated to Europe over the last century, and
thousands of European Christians are converting to Islam each day, leading
some experts to predict that Muslim immigrants will become the dominant
population in the continent by the end of this century.
In January, the Islam-Archive Central Institute, a government-sponsored
think tank, predicted that Muslims will be the majority population of
Germany by 2046, based on fertility rates.
Nicole Bourque, a British professor of religious studies at Glasgow
University, predicted that more Christians would embrace Islam in the coming
She said she knew of around 200 converts in Glasgow alone, mostly lapsed
Christians who had grown up without a strong religious background.
While many of the converts were women who married Muslim men, Bourque said
many others have been attracted to learn more about Islam by its increased
profile since the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.
In the Name Of Allah Most Benevolent Most Merciful
When the Victory of Allah has come and the conquest
And you see the people entering into the religion of Allah in multitudes
Then exhalt Him with praise of your Lord and ask forgiveness of Him
Indeed He is ever accepting of repentence.

inasha Allah islam will reach every villege in the world. iblis and satan worshipping world leaders can't really stand this. you see i like the muslims to be aware that shytan our biggest enemy is alive and was planning is sinnister world domination and humen mis-guidance from our early days when he caused our father (Adam AS) to be kicked out from peradise. All world leaders are occultist and in dircet contact with iblis and disbleivers of the Jinn, they're all invovled in occults iblis worshipping, black magic. and they're planing New World Order in witch Bahai or Bahaullah(Dajjal)'s religion will be forced upon humens. research Bahai plans and their so call universal justice center on Haifa isreal and you'll be amazed how the zionist are spending billions on this fake religion copyed from the quran with some satanism twist to it. It didn't suprise me at all when i heard of the Bohemian Grove. Muslims need to be aware and comeback to their religion. may Allah protect us from the Dajjal and his fitnah.Aamin.
ARGcomment: Ameen. Certainly Shaitaan is our sworn enemy! However, let's not get too carried away with conspiracies lest we forget our REAL problem is that WE Muslims are not following Islam properly!

yes, all praises is due to allah, he will make this religion dominant in this world. in fact, the quranic aayat make this phenomenon very clear. I would like to refer you to verses 32 and 33 in sura al-tawbah. all says: "they want to put out the light of allah with their voices and allah will will persist in maintaing His light (religion of islam = teaching of the holy prophet) even though he hates the Kuffar. He is the one who sent his messenger with Guidance and the true deen (way of life, not religion!) to make it dominant over ALL other ideologies, even though he hates the mushrkioon. Yes, these ayat are so true, alhamdullillah, the message of truth will prevail and the kuffar are ultimately going to be losers, they will be sad, depressed, and disgusted in this world and will suffer everlasting pain and torment the moment the angel of death takes their soul. may allah make us continue on the straight path and die in a state of iman. amin!!!
