The below article states:  “Now, Louahabi prays alongside hundreds of other Muslims — foreigners and Mexicans alike — at the three-story Muslim Community Educational Center in the city’s upscale Anzures neighborhood.”

“Friday prayers at the Islamic Center are given in Arabic and Spanish. The crowd is diverse: Mexican converts to Islam, expatriates, embassy staff from the Middle East, Africa, Pakistan and Central Asia. The Islamic Center even fields a soccer team.”

“Estimates of the number of Muslims in Mexico vary widely. The Mexican government, for example, said there are about 3,700 Muslims in the country, while the Washington-based Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life estimated there are approximately 110,000.”
