Muslims & Islam integrated into the American way of life

Islam is a religion that has spread through out the world and can be found in Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania and the Americas. The history of Islam in America can be traced back to the 16th century, were it was introduced into the United States of America by Muslim slaves. The US has a substantial Muslim population, which is due to the increase in immigration of Muslims to the US, some being legal permanent US residents and others being refugees from Iraq.

A huge portion of the Muslims in America (about one third) are African Americans who have converted to Muslim. The Muslim culture and tradition has increased tremendously over the past 70 years and today you can find up to 1.209 mosques in the United States, with the Islamic Center of America in Michigan being the largest mosque in America today. The population of Muslims living in the United States is unknown and some of the figures that have been released are subject to debate, however it is believed that they are around 1-2 million Muslim’s living in the United States today.

Islam has fully integrated into the American way of life and there are many Islamic organizations in America, for example there is the America Society for Muslims (ASM), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Islamic Supreme Council of America (ISCA), and the Islamic Assembly of North America (IANA).
