As a clear evidence that Islam is spreading across different nationalities more and more around the world on a daily basis, a list of one hundred foreigners of various nationalities converted to Islam in Algeria, since the beginning of this year 2012 and especially during this holy month of Ramadan.
The Algerian Minister of Religious Affairs and Endowments Media Advisor Adda Fellahi said, “The conversion to Islam increased after the country Algeria experienced a state of stability and openness to the outside nations who discovered the nature of the Algerian society and with the increasing number of foreign workers.”
He added that the cases of those who converted to Islam from other nationalities in Algeria rose to 16 cases between years 2006 and 2007, then to 78 cases during the years 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, bringing the number of adherents of Islam since the beginning of the current year, 100 foreigners.
It was also reported that Aisha Wangari Kamenju, one of the women who converted recently to Islam and now is studying during her second year at the Faculty of Sharia in Al Azhar Univesity, had stated that the rate of women who convert to Islam in Kenya is nearly about three women per day during the holy month of Ramadan, and could increase in some days to ten women.
Aisha Kamenju who currently works at an organization that is responsible for taking care of the new Muslims said that she is trying to help new Muslims to understand Islam and to identify its rituals and pillars.
She added that she works in a group of 20 Muslim women who visit remote places in Kenya to call women out there to Islam through lectures and lessons, direct and open meetings.
She stressed that there are many challenges facing the work of Muslim women in Kenya. She summarized these challenges by saying: “we lack everything, there is no special school to train Muslim advocates, and not a school for the new Muslim women to even teach them Islam, no support is ever received by the organization to help in doing its mission.”
This shows that despite the spreading ‘’Islamophobia’’ like happening in France, Anti-Islam moves like the demonstrations in Sweden, Anti-Islam Advocates like Robert Spencer and even lead by governments massacres like happening in Burma, Islam is still proving to be the religion chosen by many nationalities and people across the world.
