Islam in Ethiopia

Recommended Posts

Unknown to many people is that Ethiopia has a majority Muslim population.

Overall, it is three times as large as Somalia, Guinea or Niger,

1.2 times as large as the Sudan’s Muslim population; twice as

large as Yemen or Saudi Arabia or Syria; six times as large as

Libya; 1.5 times as large as Iraq; 1.1 times as large as Algeria

or Morocco.

 

Yet, despite the scale of abuses and suffering of the Muslim

people of Ethiopia, their agony was largely ignored by the

world community, especially by the Muslim world.

 

According to Ethiopian Muslims’ estimate, their number is

between 65 and 70 percent of the total population.QUOTE]

Unfortunately thats what people tend to think but Ethiopia is over 60% muslim. Actually only about 20% of Ethiopa is christian because theres a lot of people that still practice tradional religions; about 10% of the population. Eritrea has a slight muslim majority.

Assalamu Alaykum wa Rahmatullahee wa Barakatu

 

Remember that Ethiopia is Habesha, Abyssinia, the country where Muslims migrated in the time of the Prophet salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam.

I have a friend for there. She's visited her native country a few times since living here. She just came back from there very recently. She said, masha' Allah, the population of muslims is increasing there.. like 70%. Islam is really strong there, according to her. That there are so many mutanaqibaat currently, alhumdulilah. Lots of dawa done by women and the youth. Allahu Akbar!
