Why So Many Latinos Are Becoming Muslims
by Tim Padgett
Most Latinos know the country is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month right now. What far fewer Latinos know is that next week marks Eid al-Adha, one of Islam's most sacred holidays.
And yet the two observances are more related now than most Latinos realize.
Just as the U.S. Latino population is on the rise – Hispanics are now the nation's largest minority – so is the number of Latino Muslims. And it's not just a result of Arab Latin Americans emigrating to the United States.
