Muslim Ummah, Arab Nation and Muslim Countries are Different Subjects.

The Islam is a religion and followers of Islam are the part of Muslim Ummah, but the Arab is a Nation due to their own land, language, culture and traditions. Likewise, the Non-Arab nations of Muslim Ummah also have their land, language, culture and traditions. Moreover, all the Arabs are not Muslims. They are Christian Arabs and Jewish Arabs too.

Therefore, considering the Arabs as a sole leader or representative of Muslim Ummah and Muslim Countries, the Arabic language, culture, and traditions of the language, culture, and traditions of Non-Arab nations and countries of Muslim Ummah are not justified.

According to the Pew Research Center in 2010, there were 50 Muslim-majority countries. Around 62% of the world's Muslims live in South and Southeast Asia, with over 1 billion adherents.

The largest ethnic Population of the Muslim Ummah is;

1.    Arabs 20% population of Muslim Ummah.
2.    Bengalis 9.2% population of Muslim Ummah.
3.    Punjabis 6.4% population of Muslim Ummah.

The largest Muslim population in a country is;

1.    Indonesia, 12.7% of the World’s Muslims.
2.    Pakistan 11.0% of the World’s Muslims.
3.    India 10.9% of the World’s Muslims.

About 20% of Muslims live in Arab countries.

In the Middle East, the non-Arab countries of Turkey and Iran are the largest Muslim-majority countries.
