The fastest growing religion in the world, Islam, is an ancient religion growing in popularity at Purdue.

Enosh Kazem, a freshman in the School of Management, said there are 500-700 Muslim students at Purdue, with an increase in numbers due to international students.

"Islam to me is a complete way of life," said Israa Alrawi, a junior in the School of Health Sciences and Muslim Student Association member. "The comfort that is obtained through obedience to our Creator is the culmination of every action and decision we make, each and every day."
