Presently, Muslims are thus approximated to be 25% of the world population (Grim & Hsu, 2011).
A big Muslim population is found in the Asia-Pacific zone totaling approximately 62% of the global Muslim population. In the Middle East and North Africa, the Muslim population is around 20% of the total international Muslim population. More than half of the territories and states in North Africa and the Middle East have 95% or higher Muslim populations (Grim & Hsu, 2011).
