In Europe, it is widely known that Islam is the fastest growing religion. It is reported that by 2030, 8% European population will be Muslims. Every day a European accepts Islam and starts a new journey with a new religion that preaches peace, love, unity, and kindness.
Recently 100 newly converted Muslims from Europe performed Umrah together for the first time. This was made possible by the Saudi Arabian government and the Al Muhaidib Company for Community Services. It was a great iniatiative taken by the Saudi government to allow 100 European Muslims to perform Umrah after they embraced Islam.
Islam is the second biggest religion in the world. It has more than 1.8 billion believes which makes almost 24.1% of the world population.
Thousands of Muslims in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia witnessed this historic moment along with President General of the Holy Mosque and Sheikh Dr. Abdulrahman bin Abdul Aziz Al-Sudais.
The government and the relevant authorities in Saudi Arabia provided all the necessities to the European Muslims to make sure that they perform Umrah easily and comfortably. The European Muslims were also happy and contend with the way the host country treated them.
These Muslims belonged from different areas, professions, nationalities, what bound them together was their religion, Islam. It is amazing how people who were not Muslims by birth, chose it by their choice and performed Umrah together for the first time.
