Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the last messenger of Allah, Allah revealed the Qur’an to him. It is believed by all Muslims that the Qur’an is the guidance to how one should live their life. Muslims pray 5 times a day. The word Allah is from Arabic, to Muslims Allah is the only God. Allah has 99 names. Muslims believe Allah shows mercy and compassion.
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. Passages such as Qur’an 3:18-Allah witnesses that there is no deity except him.
