When you think of Muslim majority countries, you’re probably thinking about somewhere in the Middle East or North Africa. Veiled women and terrorists. But, the Muslim world is a lot bigger than you’d ever suspect if you only followed the mainstream news. In North America, Islam is pretty much automatically associated with the Arab world and its typically very strict and fundamentalist version of the religion. It’s probably not a coincidence that most of what is thought of as the Islamic world by the West has to do with oil producing nations.
