"The prisons hold the largest ratio of people’s embracing Islam in United States. One in four people in US prisons (for example in Pennsylvania) are Muslims. The ratio of these Muslim converts is continously on the rise. By the leave of Allah, I have been instrumental in 59 people converting to Islam. I have been doing this job for approximately five years. There are some 600 Muslims in the institution in which I work, 400 of whom fast during Ramadan.” says Bilgin Erdogan who has spent 5 years as an imam serving prisoners at SCI Huntingdon in the state of Pennsylvania.
