According to nonpartisan fact tank Pew Research Center, in the second half of this century Muslims will likely surpass Christians as the world’s largest religious group. From fractious headlines to peaceful personal practice, Islam’s presence is growing. Our panelists share insights into the intersection of religion, identity and politics, the way we understand the divine, and their undying fascination with faith.

Berdasarkan kumpulan fakta dari non-partisipan Pew Research Center, pada paruh kedua abad ini, jumlah umat Islam kemungkinan akan mengungguli jumlah umat Kristen sebagai kelompok agama terbesar di dunia. Dari tajuk berita yang sensitif hingga praktik personal yang damai, kehadiran Islam terus tumbuh. Panelis kami berbagi wawasan mengenai persimpangan agama, identitas dan politik, cara kita memahami segala yang ilahi, dan kekaguman mereka akan iman, yang tak berkesudahan.
