Muslim Countries in the World

Muslim Country : A Muslim Country is one where the social and religious customs are framed keeping in mind the Islamic principles and values. However, what’s good about this kind of country is that the citizens aren’t compelled to follow these traditions. Rather, if somebody from a different religion resides in a Muslim nation, then the country gives due respect to that religion as well. Western lifestyle is encouraged and not regarded as un-Islamic. Religious, personal, and social independence of men and women are respected. In a nutshell, the Muslim country’s socio-politico-economic conditions are a mélange of modern democracy and Islam.
