According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, the Muslim American population is much younger, on average, than the non-Muslim population. The survey finds that 59% of adult Muslims are between the ages of 18 and 39, compared with 40% of adults in the general public. This should add to the wealth of the American Muslim community and its potential for flourishing and development, but do the youth have a real chance to grow within the Muslim community?
