Illinois Has the Highest Per Capita Population of American Muslims
You’re more likely to have a Muslim neighbor in Illinois than in any other state. That’s according to a recently released report from the Illinois Muslim Civic Coalition, as well as the Institute for Social Policy and Understanding and the University of Illinois Chicago, that found that Illinois has the highest per capita population of American Muslims.
To talk about the study, we were joined by a central Illinois-based imam, and the co-founder of the Illinois Muslim Civic Coalition.

“Researchers found that Muslims in Illinois were the youngest and most diverse faith community in the state and the country.”https://t.co/WuIWiLxiMG— CAIR-SFBA (@CAIRSFBA) August 22, 2022
