Germany opens its entryways

A specialist looks at recently arrived vagrants at an improvised temporary shelter in a games lobby in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. At the point when the surge of Middle Eastern displaced people touching base in Europe at long last ebbs and shelter seekers settle down in their new homes, Germany could out of the blue discover itself lodging the landmass' biggest Muslim minority.

A manually written cardboard is seen at an ad libbed transitory safe house in a games lobby in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. The landing of such a variety of Syrians escaping their nation's severe common war is certain to change the substance of Islam in Germany, which as of not long ago has been ruled by the Turks who first came as supposed "visitor specialists" in the 1960s.

Migrants rest on beds at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. While refugees from Afghanistan, Iraq and other Muslim countries are also arriving, the Syrians make up the largest single contingent - estimated at about 45 percent - and have the best chances of being granted political asylum here.

The longer-term impact on Germany, which unlike Britain or France has no tradition of taking in immigrants from former colonies, is unclear. Many are still struggling through problems all refugees face such as learning the language and getting a job. The number of those yet to follow them is also unknown. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

Migrants rest on beds at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 18, 2015. Some trends are emerging, though, and Germans familiar with the Muslim minority see reasons for both hope and concern. The first change is simply in the numbers. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

"We could suddenly have five million Muslims," said Thomas Volk, an Islam expert at the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, a think tank associated with Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party.

Migrants charge their mobile phones at a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. Germany expects 800,000 refugees this year, most of them Muslims, and "this trend will continue," Volk told Reuters. "It will not stop abruptly on Jan. 1, 2016." In addition, most are young adult men, so the numbers will rise further when those who settle here start families. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

Merkel's critics have raised security concerns about letting in so many unchecked refugees, but German security officials say they have not found any proof that jihadists are among them.

Donated articles for migrants are seen at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. A broader question is what kind of Muslims will be joining a minority dominated by the local Turkish community, which makes up two-thirds of the German Muslim population. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

Many Turkish immigrants were poor workers from rural areas who struggled to integrate into German society. Turkey has reinforced the diaspora's link to their homeland by building mosques and sending imams, many of whom speak no German. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

Migrants play with a ball at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 18, 2015. Lamya Kaddor, a German-born academic of Syrian descent, said Islam in mostly Sunni Muslim Syria was "conservative and open." REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

A migrant child smiles at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 18, 2015. "This is because of the religious composition of the country," she said in an interview. "There are many different Christians, Druze, Alewites and some Shi'ites. Religion was never in the foreground. They're very tolerant." REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

Descriptions for migrants written in German and Arabic are seen at a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. Being accustomed to life in a multi-faith society, Syrians could integrate more easily into German society, Kaddor said. Syria also has no religious institution like Turkey's well-funded Diyanet that oversees many Turkish mosques in Germany. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

A doctor explains to a migrant where to find a hospital as others rest on beds at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. While individual Syrians may integrate more easily, their collective presence could further splinter a Muslim minority that already is unable to speak in public as a group. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

Migrants look for donated clothes at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. Arabs are a tiny minority among German Muslims now but their total could rise to about one-fifth of the overall community, a change that could exacerbate rivalries among Muslim leaders.

Migrants queue for food at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. "Arabic-influenced Islam will become more visible and German Islam more diverse," said Aiman Mazyek, the son of a Syrian father and German mother who is chairman of the small Central Council of Muslims representing mostly non-Turkish Muslims.

Volunteers distribute food for migrants at an improvised temporary shelter in a sports hall in Hanau, Germany September 22, 2015. In general, the Syrians are better educated than other migrants coming here and have better prospects of integrating. "Syrians have a reputation for being hard workers," said Birol Ucan, spokesman for the large Omar Ibn Al-Khattab mosque in the Berlin's multicultural Kreuzberg district. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach

Posters are seen attached to fences near an improvised temporary shelter in Hanau, Germany September 18, 2015. The upper poster reads "Many thanks to the Germans". "They're not classic guest workers," academic Lamya Kaddor observed. "They're middle class, even upper class - they're always the first who can flee." The most urgent task now, she said, is to provide them with German lessons and jobs so they can start a new life rather than languish in refugee shelters. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach
