This article has been reviewed by The Denver Post on April 30, 2007. Comments: "quite impressed"; "looks like something that might have been done by a young graduate student, or assistant professor, or two or three"; "clinical and straightforward, but not boring"; "where important translations of Arabic language or fine religious distinctions are required, Wikipedia acquits itself well." Please examine the findings.

The History section still needs to be shifted a bit more in the direction of religious history away from political history. It also needs to be integrated better internally; some sections do not flow properly
Article reviews have pointed out the citations. Primary sources alone are discouraged. And many books cited here only have title and author.
The "Islam Topics" section at the bottom of the page seems to have a code glitch and is not displaying properly.
Add more to the history, culture, science, and Mathematics section(s) and what Muslims contributed to Europe.
The relationship of Islam and politics should be discussed in a section devoted for it. The section should cover the fact that sharia law is only a personal law b/t someone and God (not a political or non-Muslim law), the fact the religion has been used as a tool for political profit and warfare (for ages), the fact that the suggested mode of government leadership was to "choose from the best among yourselves" (no kings), the fact that a fatwa as known today is not what is defined by sharia law (baseless political tool), and many other issues.

This sentence, "Piety appears to be deepening worldwide." is backed up by articles that are outdated and misconstrued, and therefore the sentence should be removed. All of the references are only talking about an increase in conservative Islam within the Middle East. This does not necessarily mean an increase in piety as a whole, as it is only talking about in Islam. It also clearly does not mean worldwide, because it does not talk about the world outside of the Middle East. The articles are also 8 years old now causing them to be outdated for a current standing of the piety trend in the world.
Also, this sentence "Perhaps as a result of these efforts, most experts agree that Islam is growing faster than any other faith in East and West Africa" seems quite unfounded with little to no correlation being proven with the rise of the electronic media. There are also many other factors that can and do contribute to the choice of turning to Islam. Therefore, you should remove the "Perhaps as a result of these efforts" clause.
All in all, I would request that the entire paragraph between these sentences be looked at for modification and/or removal.
The use of "most of them" in the line of the first paragraph reading "...considered by most of them to be the last prophet of God." sounds biased and excluding. "considered by most followers to be..." or "considered by most muslims..." would be less excluding. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2606:A000:112A:408D:A476:11F0:6623:BDE9 (talk) 20:15, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
I don't see a problem with the pronoun "they" per se, but its use here is certainly awkward, with an apparent double quantification ("most of the vast majority of adherents"). This sentence is trying to convey too much information. Eperoton (talk) 22:07, 5 June 2016 (UTC)
I guess because the term has been hijacked by talking heads. There are many books on Christian apologetics, but the phrase "Muslim/Islamic apologist" is a shibboleth of anti-Islam polemics. Eperoton (talk) 04:22, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
Child marriage isn't pedophilia, which is " a psychiatric disorder in which an adult or older adolescent experiences a primary or exclusive sexual attraction to prepubescent children." We discuss his marriage to [Aisha]] at her article, at Criticism of Muhammad#Aisha and [[|Islam and children#Marriage]]. Doug Wellertalk 12:15, 5 July 2016 (UTC)
