There may be up to five million Muslims in Germany.

Yes, Germany invited in a large number of Turkish and Arab “guest workers” in the 1960s and 70s. They have not had children and grandchildren. They speak German, and are better assimilated than the Muslims in France and the U.K. They are still not really German, however.

You can see this all played out in the different choices made by the Turkish German soccer players Hamit Altintop and Mesut Özil.

There are a few million muslims in Germany, mainly Turkish, but also many other nationalities.

Yes, since shortly after the end of the war, to quite a while thereafter, what was then West Germany imported numerous 'gastarbeiteren', or 'guest-workers' to alleviate manpower shortages. These primarily came from Turkey...

Germany has a lot of Turks, who were imported as cheap labor. UK has the Pakistanis, France and Spain have the N Africans, Holland has the Indonesians, and so on.
