The statistics for Islam in Peru estimate a total Muslim population of 1000, representing 0.002 percent of the population. The religion came to Peru by Middle Eastern settlers: Arabs and Iranians. There are a handful of Islamic organizations in Peru, including the Asociación Islámica del Perú and the Musulmanes Peruanos of Naqshbandi Haqqani tariqa, all located in Lima. A group of Muslims have also set up a webpage named Musulmanes Peruanos.

The Latin American Muslim Unity (LAMU) organization, based in Fresno, California, United States, has drawn up a proposal for the first Islamic orphanage in Peru, in order to deal with the current crisis of homeless children. LAMU also channels extensive funds to Muslim dawah programs in Mexico and Peru. This project has not materialized.
