Islam.SE's traffic is high and growing rapidly. We might even overtake Christianity.SE in the near future.
We can expect a large Ramadan spike in traffic.
Unlike Christianity.SE, most of Islam.SE's traffic comes from outside the US.
Our per-day rate of questions is higher than at most points throughout Islam.SE history, and increasing (a key indicator of when a site is ready to graduate).
Summary: Traffic to Islam.SE has is growing at a rapidly increasing rate. We can expect a big spike during the upcoming Ramadan.
This plot was generated from the Site Analytics data, but it's also accessible from QuantCast. It plots the site's traffic (measured in three ways), along with a linear regression and a 20-day moving average:
Clearly there is a massive spike surrounding Ramadan. But we also see that the site's popularity is increasing at rate that is higher than we would expect from past performance.
Summary: Islam.SE is currently around 27% less popular than Christianity.SE, but we have nearly caught up and we may overtake Christianity.SE. We have comparable "staying power" to Christianity.SE, i.e., return visits to the site occur at the roughly the same rates. Most of Islam.SE's traffic comes from outside the US.
The number of uniques during the week 22-28 April given by QuantCast is given below:

I took week-long traffic samples from QuantCast to compare both Islam.SE and Christianity.SE. I took samples from time periods just before Ramadan.
