Are Arabs turning their backs on religion?

Recommended Posts

Arabs are increasingly saying they are no longer religious, according to the largest and most in-depth survey undertaken of the Middle East and North Africa.

The finding is one of a number on how Arabs feel about a wide range of issues, from women's rights and migration to security and sexuality.

More than 25,000 people were interviewed for the survey - for BBC News Arabic by the Arab Barometer research network - across 10 countries and the Palestinian territories between late 2018 and spring 2019.

Here are some of the results.

Chart showing that the proportion of people who say they are not religious has increased in every place except Yemen since 2013

Since 2013, the number of people across the region identifying as "not religious" has risen from 8% to 13%. The rise is greatest in the under 30s, among whom 18% identify as not religious, according to the research. Only Yemen saw a fall in the category.

That's already made the finding dubious in my opinion. Probably wishful thinking on the BBC's part.

All religions are facing non religiosity. Muslims are least affected compared to others. But it is increasing in their ranks as well now.

Interesting. I wonder what the actual reason is for the BBC to publicise these findings. Disarming perceptions? Galvanising Islamic resolve? Curious.

The only reason they are least affected is because they force religion down peoples throats. Ie in Islamic ruled countries. Everything they do is governed by their faith. They have to follow sharia law which makes them follow their faith to the dot. 

But that is the problem that has back fired on them. When you force religion on people they can go the other way and rebel against it. 

Ive noticed from personal experience with working with turkish, iranian and many middle eastern muslims is that although they are somewhat religious, They dont try and force it down peoples throats and are alot more liberal then brown porkistanis who seem to be the most extreeme muslims. By an large you never here issues of middle eastern muslims struggling to integrate in the uk it is always the porkistanis. 

Many middle eastern muslims eat non halal food even pork drink alcohol,  dont go to mosque and are far from religious.

There will be no true Hindu and Muslim (Dasam Granth).

Only the Khalsa can stand up to Kaljug.

The religion from Arabia form 20% Arab Muslims. Pakistan will soon have the largest  Muslim population.

Islam spread in India due to Arab invaders. Later on Mughals spread it.
