As of October 2009, there are about 1.57 billion Muslims of all ages living in the world today (in more than 200 countries of the world). This represents 23% of an estimated 2009 world population of 6.8 billion people. (per study done by Pew forum). Refer to related link below.

60% of these Muslims live in Asia, mainly Pakistan, India, Indonesia, and Bangladesh.

20% of these Muslims live in North Africa and the Middle East, from Morocco to Iran.

This shows a person how many Muslims are non-Arab and that Islam allows people of any background to convert and accept the religion. The country currently with the most Muslims is Indonesia.
