As a percentage of the population, the number is quite small. Ethiopia just has a lot of people in general.

34% is a third of the population, over 35 million people - that's A LOT I would say. I was surprised it was that many.

^ me too. I don't think I met any Muslims there in Addis, Gondar, Lalibela or Axum. They might be in the villages along the borders closer to Sudan and Somalia, maybe. I only met Christians and Rastafarians.

Kal: You must be joking or interacting with lots of tourists visiting their promised land? Rastafarians number maybe 1 million worldwide and are certainly scarse in Ethiopia (even though Ethiopia is their promised land). There are more in Jamaica :). In any case, chances of you meeting a Muslim are far greater than meeting a Rastafari, granted locations visited will play a part (visiting a holy place for Rastafarians will help). Visiting Harar (Islams 4th holiest place) would have certainly changed your perception. Most of the islamic people live in Eastern parts of Ethiopia, although Addis Ababa also has a large muslim community (incl. many Somali) which you may not have noticed.

Have you been there or are you pulling stats off the Internet? Because I've been there. And I was interacting with locals almost exclusively. I didn't say there were more Rastafarians in Ethiopia than Muslims. I said I met some in Addis Ababa. And where did I say there were no Muslims in Harar? I listed the cities that I went to.

Mauritania = 100% muslim Tunisia = 99.9% Somalia = 98.9 Comoros = 98.3% I could go on. Please actually look at the source material.

I think it would make more sense to ask for the biggest percentage of muslims.
