Islam is the fastest growing religion with not only people converting after careful study, but many born Muslims are also having a rebirth of faith.

Men are also converting in increasing numbers when they study about islam and find out what the religion versus tradition really teaches. Many are in fact suprised when they read the Quran for the first time, expecting it to be a strange book talking about unknown or bizzar religious practices. Instead what they find is a book which confirms and extends the teachings which were given to Abraham, Moses and Jesus.
