That is because Islam a unified force in term of religion and basic principles. And there is really no huge ritual involved to become a Muslim. Also, the amount of rights accorded to females in our religion makes it a very attractive source .

To give u just ONE example, in Islam, women can work and use their money for whatever purpose they wish and a man CANNOT force a woman to contribute her earnings towards his own plans in Islam. In other religions, the tendency is to let the household head- and thus the man- take over all aspects of decision making!

The Spread of a World Creed
Lucy Berrington finds the Muslim Faith is winning Western admirers despite hostile media coverage.
Unprecedented numbers of British people, nearly all of them women, are converting to Islam at a time of deep divisions within the Anglican and Catholic churches.

The rate of conversions has prompted predictions that Islam will rapidly become an important religious force in this country. Within the next 20 years the number of British converts will equal or overtake the immigrant Muslim community that brought the faith here, says Rose Kendrick, a religious education teacher at a Hull comprehensive and the author of a textbook guide to the Koran. She says: Islam is as much a world faith as is Roman Catholicism. No one nationality claims it as its own. Islam is also spreading ...more

Protecting Chastity

O Prophet! Tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to draw their cloaks (veils)* all over their bodies (i.e. screen themselves completely except the eyes or one eye to see the way). That will be better, that they should be known (as free respectable women) so as not to be annoyed. And Allah is Ever Oft- Forgiving, Most Merciful. (The Noble Qur'an - Al-Ahzab 33:59)
