Islam, the world's second largest religion, is one of the three major world's religions evolving from Abraham, an ancient Semitic patriarch who rejected multiple gods for the Oneness of God. “He is God, the one and only. Allah, the Eternal, Absolute the Self-Sufficient master. He begetteth not, nor is he begotten. And there is none like unto Him.”

The word Islam means “acceptance of and submission to God”, Allah in Arabic; followers of Islam are known as Muslims.

Muslims “testify” the prophet Muhammad (c. 570–632) to be the last of the Prophets that include Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus.

Muslims believe the Qur'an (Koran) as the codified final revelation of God to humanity. One of the Five Pillars of Islam is Hajj or pilgrimage to Mecca once in a lifetime for all who have an ability to do it. Declaration that Allah is the only One worth of worship and Muhammad is the final Messager, Prayer, Almsgiving, and Fasting are the other pillars of Islam. Jihad is precisely translated to mean struggle or endeavor with one's own conscious, not to project your inner struggle outwardly.

The countries with the largest Muslim populations are Indonesia, Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh.

“Know that every True Believer is the brother of every other True Believer. ...Remember that Faith is in the heart.” Qur'an

The Arabic word “Islam” means peace, purity, acceptance and commitment. People who follow the Islamic religion are called Muslims. Islam in monotheistic that is, Muslims believe there is only one God. They believe Muhammad is the final and most important prophet, or messenger, of God, who is called Allah. But Muslims do not think of Muhammad as God. Muhammad lived from 570 to 632. He established Islam in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. His followers spread Islam from Mecca throughout the Arab world and beyond. The early Muslims converted people who lived in the lands the controlled in Arabia, North Africa, and Spain. Today, Islam is the world's second-largest religion – more than one billion Muslims live in the Middle East and around the world.

Muslims believe that Muhammad received the Qur'an [kuh-RAN], the Islamic holy book, from Allah. The Qur'an defines Islamic religious belief and practice. Overall, Islam teaches that a moral life can be led through complete submission to the will of Allah. In many Islamic nations, Islam is the state religion. In these countries, the law of Islam is the law of the land.

The Qur'an lists five duties that all Muslims must fulfill – these are known as the Five Pillars of Faith. Performing these duties makes up much of the day-to-day religious practice of Muslims. The first duty is shahadah, or testimony that "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet!" The next is salah, or prayer. Devout Muslim pray five times daily. The third duty is zakah, the giving of alms, or charity, to the poor. The fourth duty is sawm, or fasting. Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan, the time when Muhammad received the Qur'an. The final duty is hajj, or pilgrimage. If they are able, Muslims must visit the holy city of Mecca at least once in their lives.

Islam

Poster Text:
Introduction: Muslims are members of the international Islamic community, the world's second-largest religion. Islam started in Arabia, but there are Muslims throughout the world. Indonesia and Malaysia have large Muslim population.

Allah: The proclamation that Allah exists and is the one true God is essential to the faith.

Founder: Islam was founded by Muhammed (pbuh), who was born in 569 CE in Mekkah (Mecca). Muslims traditionally acknowledge respect for Muhammad and other prophets by adding “pbuh,” or “peace be upon him,”after their names.
When Muhammad was about 40, the angel Jibrail (Gabriel) appeared and told him he was the messenger of God: “Proclaim openly that which you are commanded, and turn away from idolaters.”
Qur'an, Surah 15:94

Holy books: The Qur'an was written after the death of Muhammad. Muslims believe it is the authentic word of Allah, as revealed to Muhammad, and was given to them for guidance. Although Muslim accept other holy books, they believe only the Qur'an exists in an unchanged form.
Hadiths are collection of the saying and teaching of Muhammad.

Leaders: Worship is led by an imam. Any Muslim can be an imam if he has a good knowledge of Islam, has studied the Hadiths and the Qur'an in Arabic, and is respected by the Muslim community. Imams are usually unpaid.

Key beliefs: Muslim beliefs can be divided into three groups:
Tawhid - the oneness of Allah
Risalah - the work and messages of the prophets
Akbirah - life and death

Worship: Religious practice follows the five pillars of Islam:
Shahadah - declaration of faith in Allah
Salah - prayer five times a day
Zakah - giving money to the poor
Sawm - fasting during Ramadan
Hajj - pilgrimage to Mekkah at least once in a lifetime.

Buildings: Allah can be worshipped anywhere, but most communities have a mosque that serves as the focal point of religious life. Many Muslims attend Friday prayers there.

Fasts and festivals: The two great Muslim festivals are Id-ul-Fitz, which ends the fast of Ramadan, and Id-el-Adha, which is celebrated during the month of Ramadan, and marks the end of Hajj.

Hajj: Hajj involves a pilgrimmage to Makkah. It should be completed at least once in a lifetime by those Muslims who can afford the journey.

Ouotation from Muhammad
“‘What is faith?’ When your good deed pleases you and your evil deed grieves you, you are a believer. ‘What is sin?’ When a thing disturbs (the peace of) your heart, give it up.”
