With some 1.5 billion followers worldwide, concentrated especially in Southeast Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa, the Muslim faith is the world’s second largest religion.

Like Judaism and Christianity, Islam is a religion “of the book;” Muslims believe Muhammad was the last in a line of prophets, which included Jesus, to reveal the word of God to humanity.

Today, Islam is probably the most misrepresented and misunderstood religion, at least in the Western world. With this in mind, Matador strives to produce content that reflects the faith’s diversity and richness, as well as how it informs the everyday lives of its followers.
