Today’s Muslim American population ¡s an extraordinary mosaic of ethnic, linguistic, ideological, social, economic, and religious groups. Native Muslim Americans are well integrated into American society, while many newcomers are just beginning to adapt to American life. In terms of reigious devotion, Muslims range from highly orthodox to moderate to secular. Muslims resemble Christian, Jews, Hindus, and other American religious communities ¡n that many of them seek full political and social integration, while other prefer to live primarily in the context of their communities and cultural practices. Many of the immigrants come from Muslim-majority countries and inevitably go through a period of adjusment as they learn the ways of a pluratistic society. The size of the Muslims-American population has proved difficult to measure because the U.S. Census does not track religious affiliation. Estimates vary widely from 2 million to 7 million. What is clear, however, is that the Muslim-American population has been growing rapidly as a result of immigration, a high birth rate, and conversions.
