Islam

The last of the historic religion, Islam (literally means “submission to God”, Arabic: Allah) regulates the entire life of the Muslims. Muslims (“those who have surrendered to the faith”) believe in God, who is viewed as the sole creator, sustainer, and restorer of the world. The will of God, to which man must submit, is made known through the sacred scriptures, the Koran, which God revealed to his messenger, Mohammad, and in which there is no word other than of Divine origin. In Islam, Mohammad is believed to be the last of a series of prophets (including Adam, Noah, Jesus, and others). Muslims claim that he has brought the final revelation of God’s truth to mankind. To become a Muslim, one has to pronounce shahada (the profession of faith): “There is no god but God; and Mohammad is the prophet of God”. Muslims are enjoined to namaz, three daily prayers in five parts. The first prayer is performed before sunrise, the second just after noon, the third in the late afternoon, the fourth immediately after sunset, and the fifth before retiring to bed. Muslims’ other duties include “zakat” (giving alms to the poor) and “ruzeh” (fasting during the month of Ramazan). Once in their lifetime, provided one can afford it, Muslims should make “hajj” (pilgrimage) to Mecca in Saudi Arabia, the site of the Kaaba, a sacred monument built by Abraham, and also the birthplace of Prophet.
