In addition, Islam often draws in converts because of the nature of the religion is that a person has a direct relationship with God.One does not need a mediator, like a priest in Catholicism.Islam solves the problems many Latinos have with the Catholic Church. Fathi Osman, resident scholar at the Omar Foundation, says "in their own countries Hispanics did not see the Church supporting the rights of the poor.Rather it sided with the rich and the influential." This, he argues, has contributed to some Latinos converting to Islam.As for the Arabs, they took Islam to very few Latin American countries such as Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Colombia.As true with other religious converts, Latinos convert to Islam primarily due to their newfound belief in the teachings of Islam.Islam is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion articulated by the Qur'an and by the Sunnah of Muhammad, who is believed to be the messenger to all mankind and Jinns until the Day of Judgement.The Spaniards took the Roman Catholic faith to Latin America, and Roman Catholicism continues to be the largest, but not the only, religious denomination among most Hispanics.

For example, the Spanish language has remnants of Arabic influence in words like "Ojalá" (may God will) and "olé," derived from "Allah." There is not a lot of information about Hispanic and Latino Muslims from the colonial period up to the 19th century.

Other reasons for conversion include finding resonance with Islam after researching other religions, or having an academic interest in Islam that leads to a spiritual interest.

Others also choose to convert because they are dating or married to someone who is Muslim.

The terms Latino and Hispanic denote an ethnicity, not a race.

Many Latino Muslims live in various cities within the United States and have shown a growing presence in states like New York, Illinois, New Jersey and Florida.
