Some facts on islam

Post by BIBI786 on Mon May 04, 2009 9:53 pm

1) “Islam” literally means “peace through the submission to God”
2) “Muslim” literally means “anyone or anything that submits itself to the will of God”.
3) Islam is not a cult. Its followers number over one billion worldwide. Along with Judaism and Christianity, it is considered to be one of the three Abrahamic faiths.
4) There are five pillars of practice in Islam. These practices must be undertaken with the best of effort in order to be considered a true Muslim: A) Shahadah – declaration of faith in the oneness of God and that Muhammad is the last prophet of God. B) Formal prayer five times a day. C) Fasting during the daylight hours in the month of Ramadan. D) Charity – 2.5% of one’s savings given to the needy at the end of each year. E) Pilgrimage to Mecca at least once, if physically and financially able.
5) There are six articles of faith in Islam. These are the basic beliefs that one must have in order to be considered a true Muslim. They are belief in: A) the One and only God B) all the prophets of God C) the original books revealed to Moses, David, Jesus, and
Muhammad D) the angels E) the Day of Judgment and the Hereafter F) pre-ordainment.
6) Islam is a complete way of life that governs all facets of life – moral, spiritual, social, political, economical, intellectual, etc.
7) Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the world. Approximately one out of every five people today designate their religion as Islam
Cool “Allah” is an Arabic word that literally means “God”. Muslims also believe that “Allah” is the personal name of God.
9) Allah is not God of the Muslims only. He is the God of all people and all creation. Just because people choose to call God by different names does not mean that they are different gods. Interestingly, most Arab Jews and Arab Christians also refer to God as “Allah”
10) Muslims neither worship Muhammad nor pray through him. Muslims solely worship the unseen and Omniscient Creator, Allah
