Ummah Worldwide

At about 1.8 billion people, Muslims represent roughly a quarter of the global population. This diaspora is called the Ummah, an Arabic word meaning “community.” In descending order, the largest Muslim populations can be found in Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Nigeria. As much as 85%-to-90% of the Ummah is part of the Sunni branch of Islam.
