Truth acts as a most powerful glue in all cases. Islam glues everyone to itself to those who take interest in knowing the reality of life and of this world. i.e Who created this universe with extra-ordinary balances, Who is God?, Why is man here on earth? How can sufferings be removed from the whole world? what is the criteria of success in life? and many more...

Answer updated**** Islam attracts the attention of many people as it provides straightforward answers to the meaning of why we are here on Earth - to prove ourselves worthy of the rewards of the afterlife or passage into heaven. Muslims who follow the Q'uran should be respectful of all people, regardless of race, gender or even religion. In this way, Islam is different from many religions, as they are not to judge people for their choice of religion. The Q'uran says that Allah (God) also created all religions before Islam (Christianity, Judaism etc) but that the holy books of these religions had been changed by Man for their own purposes. This explains that all religions have the same basis, but that Islam is the most recent and accurate as the true word of God. Thus, the Q'uran, as the most recently written holy book, was said by Allah to be believed as the true word of God, and that anyone who changed the wording would suffer torment in the afterlife. The Q'uran has not been changed since it was written and many non-arab Muslims learn to read Arabic in order to read the Q'uran. Islam is appealing to many people as its holy book, the Q'uran, has been unchanged since it was written, it contains refernces to many scientific discoveries which were made years after the Q'uran was written (which helps to prove its accuracy/believability), and contains scripture which is based around guiding Muslims to be truly good, respectful people.

The reason why "Islam" is so popular in the Middle East is because prophet Mohammed (PBUH) was born in the Middle East in the city of Mecca or Makkah and at the age of 40 came with the religion of Islam. So basically why is Islam so popular in the Middle East its because its started there. Don't get me wrong it started at the beginning of time but then more and more people don't follow Islam so Allah (Arabic word for God) sent down messengers/prophets to follow people on the straight path. Religion in also much more central to political and cultural importance in the Middle East as a region than Europe or even America. As Islam is the dominant religion in that region, its effects are much more pronounced. ________________________________________________________ Islam religion is important to the follower of Islam where ever he is living.
