Islam is mainly found in the Middle-East, North Africa, Central Asia and South-East Asia with its most populous nation in Indonesia. In by far most Islamic Regions Sunni Islam is the dominant sub-division, with Shia Islam only widely practiced in Iran (Persia) and (parts of Eastern) Iraq. In China Islam is spread thinly throughout and concentrated in the North-West. The rare form of Wahabism, is considered an fundamentalist branch of Sunni Islam can be found in Saudi Arabia, neighboring Qatar and lately in Indonesia and other Saudi "Aid" Nations. Currently, the entire Middle East is enflamed by religious, sectarian and political strife with extreme groups violently propagating their version of the Islamic Faith.
