The Maps

Islamic organizations adhere to the Islamic doctrine found in the Koran, Sira and the Hadith. 51% of this doctrine relates to Kafirs (non-Muslims). We define this 51% of the doctrine about Kafirs as "Political Islam." Therefore, all Islamic organizations represent Political Islam to some extent.

The maps on this page reveal the growing influence of Political Islam in different countries over time, by showing the increasing number of organizations which represent the doctrine of Political Islam.

The visualization provided by these maps is designed to give scientists, politicians, state representatives and the general public a better understanding of the situation associated with Political Islam in non-Islamic countries as well as initiate further research with the focus on areas with higher / lower density of Islamic organizations.

The easiest way to understand the depth of Islamic political penetration in a country is to see the whole picture. When you look at the various separate pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, it is difficult to see the picture. But when the pieces are assembled, the image is clear and whole.

Looking at the Islamic organizational infrastructure through the prism of the doctrine of Political Islam, the following questions (and others of a similar nature) must be researched and answered.

Is there any correlation between the density of Islamic organizations and:

  • the success or failure of the integration process of the migration from Islamic countries?
  • the transformation the public space and/or urban design?
  • the level of security and law enforcement activity?
  • the value of the business as well as private real estate?
  • the freedom of artistic expression, including music, painting, dance, etc.?
  • the diversity of different cultures and religious groups in neighborhoods?
  • increasing and/or decreasing availability of certain types of food, beverages, and particular services?
