Islam spread from Saudi Arabia to neighbouring countries in the gulf (Iraq, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Yemen, UAE...) Then Islam spread to North Africa (Egypt, Morocco, Mali, Sudan, Chad, Somalia, Burkino Faso, Mauritania...) Then Islam spread to Europe (Turkey, Spain...) Then Islam spread to the far East (India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia...) Through slave trade, Islam spread to USA and Southern Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries. Today Muslim countries are concentrated in the Middle East, North Africa and Far East regions. Muslims can however be found in every country in the world with the exception of a few Islands where Muslim tourists are found and not Muslim citizens. Islam is the world's fastest growing religion and the second largest religion at present.
