The young population and high fertility rates of Muslims around the globe have led to a projection that by 2035 at the latest, there will be slightly more babies born to Muslims (225 million) than to Christians (224 million), despite the fact that there will continue to be, for a while, more Christians than Muslims on the planet. By the 2055 to 2060 period, this gap in number of births could reach 6 million (232 million births for Muslims, 226 million for Christians), Pew Research Center reported on Wednesday.
Muslims are likely to be the world’s fastest-growing major religious group in the decades ahead, according to Pew, which suggests the signs of the rapid growth are already visible. Between 2010 and 2015, Muslim births reached an estimated 31% of all babies born around the world, while the overall Muslim population was only 24%.
