Islam in Singapore

About 15.6% of Singapore's residents are Muslims, according to the most recent 2020 census.[1] Islam is the third largest religion in the country, after Buddhism and Christianity. Over four-fifths of Singaporean Muslims are ethnic Malays,[2] while 13 percent are Indian; the remaining proportion include local Chinese, Eurasian, and Arab communities, as well as foreign migrants.[3] The majority of Muslims in Singapore are traditionally Sunni Muslims who follow the Shafi‘i or the Hanafi school of thought.[4]
