islam

In the Islam religion its much different than any other religion. their followers are called Muslum. they believe in a god called allah in Arabic. they believe Abraham as their common figure and so does the other two religions. they read the book called Quran which has two sections ; the shahada and sunnuh. they follow the five pillars , they believe they can get closer to god that way. the five pillars are prayer, believe,charity,fasting and pilgrimage. they pray and worship god in a mosque. in the holy masque there is a hole in the wall so they can pray towards mekka. Mekka is in Saudi Arabia. in the mosque there is a sheikh , he is a worship leader. they go on a trip called thee annual hajj. that is gong to mekka and circling around the kabbah seven times. the kabbah is a cubed shaped small building. Jerusalem is the dome of the rock to them. they two things that all three religion have in common is that their common figureis Abraham and that their all monotheism that is the most important facts about being a Muslum.
