Like seriously there are more Muslims in Ethiopia than Syria or Saudi Arabia. And there are more Muslims in Russia (a state we barely think of as having a Muslims population) than Palestine, Jordan, Bahrain, the UAE, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait and Israel combined.
The world’s four largest Muslim nations are in South and South East Asia, not the Middle East. And in fact, even taking North Africa as part of the Middle East (a questionable assumption) then it’s still only home to a fifth of the world’s Muslims.
