Do you mean Brunei?
 
Yes Brunei is a small muslim country. The full name is Brunei Darussalam. It's located in the top of Borneo island, it has borders with Indonesia and Malaysia.

Hello Want-to-know,

What would you like to know about Muslims?

Well for one thing, Muslims are one of the most diverse communities in the world. We are spread all over the world, in Asia, Middle-East, Africa, Americas, Europe etc. There are Muslims of every single imaginable color, race and ethnicity.

American Muslims for example represent 68 different countries ! as well as the indigenous people (many of them being African Americans). In America, Muslims are the 2nd most educated community after Jews, and 49% of Muslims have at least a college degree compared to only 29% of overall Americans.

This is an interesting article that fights common myths against American Muslims:

http://www.loonwatch.com/?s=muslims+educated+america&x=0&y=0&=Go



Oh, as for Nation of Islam, while they did help African Americans get a voice in America - they have practices which are un-Islamic and not very ethical. Islam forbids racism, no matter which race it is against. So Nation of Islam is not a good representation of Islam, since many of its fundamental beliefs go against the Islamic faith. Many NOI members convert to orthodox Islam later in life. Malcolm X & Muhammad Ali for example, are examples of famous NOI members who later converted to "Islam".
 
What else would you like to know? Smile
