Immigration from outside the United States resulted in a net increase of 30,537 people, and migration within the country produced a net increase of 42,641 people.


From the 1880s to 1914, several thousand Muslims immigrated to the United States from the former territories of the Ottoman Empire and the former Mughal Empire. The Muslim population of the U.S. increased dramatically in the 20th century, with much of the growth driven by a comparatively high birth rate and immigrant communities of mainly Arab and South Asian descent. About 72% of American Muslims are immigrants or "second generation".

Alabama US Muslim Population by County

When broken down to the county level, it’s easy to see just how dominant Christianity is in Alabama.
In 15 counties in the state, other religions do not even have a large enough presence to be statistically relevant. Documenting the second largest religion in 34 Alabama counties is reliant on potentially sketchy data supplied by faiths that keep track of their adherents through mailing lists, rather than congregations.
Interestingly, Judaism has a strong presence in Jefferson and Montgomery counties, but is almost non-existent in the rest of the state. Meanwhile, Hinduism is the second-largest religious bloc in Shelby and Limestone, And Buddhism has pockets of activity in Russell and Tallapoosa counties.
