Islam

The followers of Islam are called Muslims. The Beliefs of Muslims are: Belief in Allah, Belief in Angels, Belief in the Prophets, Belief in the Holy Book, Belief in the Day of Judgement, Belief in Predestination. Shahada – public declaration of faith, Salat – prayer, Zakat – giving to the needy, Siyam – fasting during Ramadan, Hajj –pilgrimage, or journey, to the city of Mecca at least once in lifetime are the 5 Pillars of Faith. Muslims go to a Mosque to worship Allah. The Imam leads the prayers and the Mullah teaches Islam. The Holy Book of Islam is the Qu'ran which contains the sacred words of Allah. Ramadan is the month of fasting and gives thanks to god for food. Eid al Fitr is the celebration of the end of Ramadan and usually ends with presents, food, and family. The Dome of the Rock is considered a Sacred Place to Muslims and so is Jerusalem, Mecca, Medina.

Abraham and God

Abraham is the common figure for Judaism, Christianity, and Islam because Abraham founded each of the 3 religions. He also is god's messenger. In all three religions, there is only one god like Allah, Yahweh, And Adonai. The religions are all monotheistic.
