Half of the Most Religiously Diverse Countries are in Asia-Pacific Region

Several years ago, the Pew Research Center produced estimates of the religious makeup of more than 200 countries and territories, which it published in the 2012 report “The Global Religious Landscape.” The effort was part of the Pew-Templeton Global Religious Futures project, which analyzes religious change and its impact on societies around the world. As part of the next phase of this project, Pew Research has produced an index that ranks each country by its level of religious diversity.…………………

Religious Diversity by Region

Religious diversity differs substantially by geographic region. Among the six regions analyzed in this study, the Asia-Pacific region has the highest level of religious diversity, followed by sub-Saharan Africa. Europe and North America have a moderate level of religious diversity, while the Latin America-Caribbean and Middle East-North Africa regions have a low degree of religious diversity.

To see Religious Diversity Index scores for countries and regions, see Appendix 2 (PDF) and Religious Diversity Index Scores by Country table. That appendix also includes the percentage of each country’s population that belongs to each of the eight major religious groups in the study. For more information on the size, share and geographic distribution of each of the major religious groups, see Pew Research’s 2012 report “The Global Religious Landscape.”

    GLOBAL RELIGIOUS DIVERSITY IS REALITY.

    If God want to unite people in one nation,one language, and one beliefs is easy for God, but in reality God want to see each nation and beliefs race in good deeds for the sake of God.

    God had created earth, universal, people in various races, cultures, language, and provided what people needs, and provided also the laws how to live in peace, in harmony, and prosperity. How to govern all different race, faith and cultures. This is a challenge for His people on earth.

    Allah wants His people He creates till nowadays, never stopping, live in peace, love, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness, help one another, and prosperity. In order that, all races, beliefs should follow Allah’s laws completely.

    O mankind! Lo! We have created you from male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.QS 49; (13).

    Now Allah be Exalted, the True King! There is no God save Him, the Lord of the Throne of Grace. QS 23 ;116.

    And to Allâh belongs the sovereignty of the heavens and the earth, and to Allâh is the return (of all). QS 24;42

    Verily, this Brotherhood of yours is a single Brotherhood, and I am your Lord and Cherisher: therefore serve Me (and no other). QS 21;92

    If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people ( UNITED ), but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute. QS 5:(48).

    HOW TO LIVE IN PEACE, HARMONY IN GLOBAL RELIGIOUS DIVERSITY?

    Can the children of God actually coexist and live peacefully? We should answer it, yes we can! If we all really follow the rule of God completely.

    This is God’s promise;

    “If you do love Allah, follow me: Allah will love you and forgive you your sins; for Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” QS 3:31.

    If you live according to my laws and obey my commandments. I will send you rain at the right time so that the land will produce crops and the trees will bear fruit. Your crops will be so plentiful that you will still be harvesting grain when it is time to pick grapes and you will still be picking grapes when it is time to plant grain. You will have what you want to eat and you can live in safety on your land.

    I will give you peace in your land and you can sleep without being afraid of anyone. I will get rid of the dangerous animal on your land and there will be no more war there. You will be victorious over your enemies; five of you will be able to defeat a hundred, a hundred will be able to defeat ten thousand. I will bless you and give you many children.(Leviticus .26.1-13)

    God already given the rule to mankind as follow;

    THE FIRST GREATEST COMMANDMENT.

    Matthew 22.37. Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind

    THE SECOND GREATEST COMMANDMENT.
    Matthew 22.37.‘Love your neighbor as yourself,
    (Love all people regardless his race and religion)

    But” If you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.

    DO NOT JUDGE OTHERS.

    1. Do not accuse anyone falsely (exodus.20;16).
    2. Why do judge your brother?
    3, God alone, who gave the law, is the Judge. He alone has the power to save or to destroy. So what right do you have to judge your neighbor? James 4:12

    4. The believers are nothing else than brothers So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allâh, that you may receive mercy.
    O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; QS 49;10

    Surely, your Lord is best aware of those who go astray from His way, and He is best aware of those who are on the right path. QS 6; 116-117,

    There are some more rules from God have to obey.
    Verily, some people still refuse God’s laws, that is why there is no peace in this world. Unfortunately Evil still existing to influence people do wrong and mislead people from God’s laws.

    May Allah give the guidance of the right path to all people and ask Allah for forgiveness. Then may Allah give them His grace, love and mercy.

    For You from My Heart.
    All those who read shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; O Allah, be my witness, that I have conveyed your message to your people.

    Wassalamu’alikum wrwb
    With all my love
