What is Islam ?

What is Islam ?!

The word Islam mean submission to the one and only God (Allah). It comes from the arabic world "salam" which means peace.

What does Islam teach ?

Islam teaches that human beings are born pure and sinless. No one is responsible for, or can take responsibility for the sins of others. The doors of forgiveness are always open for those who repent sincerely.

What is the Quran and what does it teach ?!

It is similar to the Torah and the Bible in the sense that it is a holy book dedicated to a specific religion, except that Muslims believe the Quran to be God's own words, dictated to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through the angel Jibreel.The Holy Quran teaches many things, it is impossible to sum them all up. The Quran basically teaches what is right and wrong, or halal and haram, in the Muslim faith. It dictates the 5 pillars of Islam, it tells the stories of the various prophets throughout history, it offers explanations and insight into the Islamic faith.

What are the pillars of Islam ?!

The Five Pillars of Islam are the five obligations that every Muslim must satisfy in order to live a good and responsible life according to Islam.

The Five Pillars consist of:

Shahadah: sincerely reciting the Muslim profession of faith

Salat: performing ritual prayers in the proper way five times each day

Zakat: paying an alms (or charity) tax to benefit the poor and the needy

Sawm: fasting during the month of Ramadan

Hajj: pilgrimage to Mecca
