All about Islam.

Muslims go to the mosque and pray. Islam was found in the 7th century. It shares some ideas with Judaism and Christianity. Muslims believe in one God Allah. The Qur’an is the Muslim’s holy book-Muslims also follow the prophet Muhammad’s teaching. About 85-90% of Muslims are Sunni Muslim. Muhammad was the founder of Islam-Allah revealed the Qur’an to him when Muhammad died. Muslims pray 5 times a day. The word Allah is from Arabic to Muslims Allah is the only God Muslims believe Allah shows mercy and compassion.

5 pillars

1. Faith

There is no god but Allah Muslims should say this several times a day. It is said at birth and death as well as in the call to prayer. People can convert to Islam by saying it. The exact words aren’t in the Quran but come from passages such as Qur’an 3:18-Allah witnesses that there is no deity except him. It is essential to Shea Muslims too though it is not one of their ten obligatory Acts.they add Ali is the helper of Allah as Ali is significant to their faith.

 

2. Pray

The second most important duty in Islam. Muslims should pray five times a day at sunrise. Around noon late afternoon after sunset and late evening. see below for more detail.

 

3. Donate

Each person decides where to donate their money. Donate encourages generosity and compassion.

 

4. Ramadan

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar. Muslims should are obliged to fast during it. This teaches self-discipline which brings Muslims closer to Allah.

 

5. Hajj

Every Muslim should do Hajj at least once. It’s only obligatory if you can afford it and you’re healthy enough to do it.                                      Every Friday there is a speech at the mosque.
