and many other countries in the regions.
Diffusion of Islam
The Islamic religion spread through expansion diffusion in the form of contagious diffusion and also through relocation diffusion.
Islamic followers used relocation diffusion to spread the religion by using their armies to spread the faith across the Arabian Peninsula through Invasion and Conquest moving west diffusing Islam throughout North Africa.
Through trade Muslims later spread Islam into Southeast Asia. Muslim traders settled trading ports in Southeast Asia, established new secondary hearths and worked to spread the religion through contagious diffusion.
Islam was also spread by expansion diffusion contagiously, because the religion remained strong in it's hearth of Mecca and Medina, and then diffused to Egypt, and North Africa through Southeast Asia into West Africa affecting nearly all the adjacent areas.
The Islamic religion spread the way it did due to war, invasion and conquest, trade, and Muhammad's followers spreading it amongst other religions.
Rankings :
Growth of Islam
Islam is one of the fastest growing religions.
There are substantial growing Muslim populations in Europe, North America, China and Russia.
For example, in the U.S. about 80% of the over 1,200 mosques have been built in the past 12 years.
The top most populous Muslim countries are Indonesia, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
Saudi Arabia is no longer the core area of Islam, due to many Muslims leaving to Southeast Asia for trade, where they then made new secondary hearths diffusing the religion to Indonesia, Pakistan, etc. Also, due to the diffusion of Islam into North African countries.
Muslims have to look after the Earth because it's all Allah's creation and it's part of a human's duty to Allah. They are instructed to look after the environment and not to damage it.
The Earth is green and beautiful, and Allah has appointed you his stewards over it. The whole earth has been created a place of worship, pure and clean. Whoever plants a tree and diligently looks after it until it matures and bears fruit is rewarded. If a Muslim plants a tree or sows a field and humans and beasts and birds eat from it, all of it is
on his part.
