Why so many non-Muslims Keep reverting to Islam

This question should not come as a surprise to non Muslims as the writing is on the wall all over the world. There has been a sharp increase in the number of non Muslims being attracted to Islam, and many of these end up taking their Shahadah to enter the fold of Islam. The number of Muslims is almost touching the two billion mark with its steady increase every day.

As per Wikipedia, More than 24.1% of the world's population is Muslim. Current estimates conclude that the number of Muslims in the world is around 1.8 billion. Muslims are the majority in 49 countries, they speak hundreds of languages and come from diverse ethnic backgrounds. The city of Karachi in Pakistan has the largest Muslim population in the world.

The reason why is generally the mere fact that Islam is not only a religion. In fact, it is a way of life that teaches about relationship with God, with the universe, and inter personal relationship with ethics with the economy and the political system.

What could be the major factors that are leading to this Muslim population increase? There have been many studies being carried out to find the reason why, specially in the Christian world for Islam is considered to be the major religion by year 2050, leaving behind the Christianity.

Generally, the  reason quoted for the increase in Muslim population is given the higher fertility rate among the Muslims. But if statistics are taken seriously, the ratio between physical growth within Musli families, the number of reverts is also very sizable. 

This is because Islam encourages reasoning and logical thinking. Younger generation of today's non-Muslim world is much more curious and fact finding. Most of the reverted Muslims take years studying Islam, pondering over the pros and cons, weighing the anti Muslim sentiments / Islamophobia and the truth that they find by reading Qur'an, which is otherwise misquoted by the non-Muslim clerics. The ordinary non-Muslims are generally brainwashed about Islam and are fed with the notion of Islamophobia, Muslims being terrorists, and being illiterates and stubborn. It is only when non-Muslims try to find answers to their queries and read Qur'an, they find the lies being fed to them for the fear of losing them to Islam.

We could go on and on, listing reasons in favour of Islam, it would be an eye opener to watch the following very informative video  video which explains the reasons due to which more people are accepting  Islam:

In our reckoning, when it comes to talking about religions, one should never hide the facts or twist them for the purpose of point scoring. Le everyone know the truth and then let them weigh the implications vis a vis their own faith and Islam and decide where the truth and logic weighs heavy. It is the concept of Trinity which perhaps is the main reason that people find it illogical and find the answer of One True God, Muslims call Allah, and change faiths. Let the sanity prevails. Bashing Islam, ridiculing the word Allah as something different for the Divine God, and personal life of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ has in fact resulted in more inclination to Islam rather than hating it for no good reason.

May Allāh (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us to be like the ones He loves and let our lives be lived helping others and not making others' lives miserable or unlivable. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.
