"There are nearly 2000 mosques nationwide as well as numerous Islamic day schools and Sunday and weekend schools."

Lets see, there are supposedly 6 million muslims and only 2000 mosques, that would mean there would be about 40,000 people at each to pray on a holy day, ya, right!

Most of them can't even hold more then a hundred or two, so whose in fantasyland now, or are they counting the muslims in graves over here too?

"Once again the misconceptions of the west. What a great job they have done at brain washing you, in the face of the material i have shown you, you still grasp to ignorance. I grave error made by the Romans may i add."

Hmmmmmmmmm, the Roman Empire lasted about 1,200 years, the U.S. has only been around for little over 200, so I guess we got about a 1,000 left, that's more then Islam does!

As for this fastest growing religion in the U.S. where do you get those stats, DreamOn.com?

sorry was late to reply, have been away for a few days. as for your inquiry into the sources or references for Islam being the fastest growing religion in the US:

Islam is one of the fastest-growing religions in the U.S. By the year 2010, America's Muslim population is expected to surpass the Jewish population, making Islam the country's second-largest faith after Christianity

that's a US government site. or is the US government now also infected with left-wing. socialistic, conspirational pinkies?

Islam in the U.S. 2001

Fact Sheet: Islam in the United States

Islam is one of the fastest-growing religions in the U.S. By the year 2010, America's Muslim population is expected to surpass the Jewish population, making Islam the country's second-largest faith after Christianity.1

The American Muslim community is a mosaic of cultures, its members having come from all of the five major continents. In fact, a recent survey showed that most Muslims are immigrants -- 77.6% versus 22.4% U.S. born.2

This same survey indicated that the ethnic origins of the Muslim community are as follows:

26.2% Middle East (Arab)

24.7% South Asia

23.8% African American

11.6% Other

10.3% Middle East (Not Arab)

6.4% East Asia

While there are no official population figures for religious affiliation in the United States, experts estimate that there are approximately six million American Muslims. Other estimates range from four to eight million.3

The Britannica Book of the Year estimated that, in mid-2000, there were 4,175,000 Muslims in the United States, 1,650,000 of whom are African American in origin. An average of 17,500 African Americans converted to Islam each year between 1990 and 1995.4

The earliest group of Muslims to arrive in America in significant numbers came from West Africa from 1530 to 1851, because of the slave trade. They comprised an estimated 14% to 20% of the hundreds of thousands of West Africans forcibly removed from their homelands.5

The next sizable number of Muslims immigrated to the United States during the early 20th century. They came from Lebanon, Syria and other countries across the Ottoman Empire.6

The post-World War II era, during the 1960s and '70s, saw the third substantial wave of immigrants from all parts of the Islamic world. This wave included large numbers of Muslims who came to study at American universities.7

Approximately a third of American Muslims live on the East Coast (32.2%), 25.3% live in the South, 24.3% in the Central/Great Lakes Region, and 18.2% in the West. 8

There are nearly 2000 mosques nationwide as well as numerous Islamic day schools and Sunday and weekend schools.9

Fastest growing religion, but what does that mean?

If I have some kook ball who starts his own religion and gets ten new members the first year, statisticly he would have the fastest growing religion, so this claim is specious.

Also, how is this relgion growing? Is it by converts, or is it by recent immigres from from other countries who are already muslims?

The 6 million estimate is already proven bogus, just on face value, if there are only 2000 mosques in the U.S., and most cannot accomodate more then a hundred of two, then how in the world could they have on an average 40,000 worshipers per mosque, that a 6 million populace of muslims would require?

Wishful thinking doesn't equate to reality!

"Habeebi, listen dont waste your time. If you say the sky is blue to this guy he will say in reality it is black but because of the seas reflection it looks blue LOL "

In actuallity it is black, but looks blue due to the filtering of the sun's rays through the earths atmosphere, not a reflection off of the sea, but thanks anyways, your answer was standard, and wrong, as usual.

"does that translate to "man im a moron but for some reason I am compelled to keep babbling" ?"

No!

It translates into "wheres the toilet?"

A language very similar to Arabic, very similar, not only in verbage, but in outlook on life.
