Why Are Increasing Numbers of “Black Britain’s” Reverting to Islam? Listen Here: Young, Muslim & Black

In the last two decades, Islam has become the fastest growing religion among Black people in Britain, this at a time when the UK appears more disunited over faith, ethnicity and identity than ever before.

More than two thirds of Muslims in Britain are of South Asian ancestry, leading many to believe that Islam is the preserve of these communities.

In this programme the writer and presenter, Dotun Adebayo, explores this phenomenon and asks why is Islam providing such an attractive religious alternative to Christianity for Black Britons seeking spiritual answers?

What do they get from Islam that they can’t get from their original faith?

Is this just a rebellion against the family and society?

He will talk to young black people about the reasons for their conversion and to Bishop Joe Aldred from the Black Churches who explains where he thinks the Black Majority Churches are going wrong and why he thinks they need to smarten up and get their message across to young people so they are comfortable with church.

    5000 converts a uear means that there’ll be all of a million in a couple of hundred years. You’d better take lessons from the mormons.
