Islam in Colombia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Mosque of Omar Ibn Al-Khattab is the third largest mosque in Latin America.
The Mosque of Omar Ibn Al-Khattab is the third largest mosque in Latin America.

The statistics for Islam in Colombia estimate a total Muslim population of 14,000 (0.03%) according to a Pew Research Center report.[1] There are a number of Islamic communities in Colombia, the most important of which, according to their size, are in Bogotá, Maicao and Buenaventura. There are also Islamic centers in San Andrés, Nariño, Santa Marta and Cartagena.

There are also primary and secondary Islamic schools in Bogotá and Maicao. Maicao plays host to the continent's third largest mosque, the Mosque of Omar Ibn Al-Khattab. Most Muslims in Colombia are descendants of Arab immigrants from Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine during the late 19th to early 20th century.[2]

The Afro-Colombian Muslims in Buenaventura, Colombia’s main Pacific port city, have over the years embraced the teachings of the Nation of Islam, mainstream Sunni Islam, and the Shia denomination [3]

The Ahmadiyya Community also has a presence in the country.[4]
