What is the most important belief in Islam?

Muslims believe in the five pillars, which are taught through the Quran. The five pillars are-

~Shahada (There is no god but God, or Allah)

~Salat (A annual prayer 5 times a day)

~Zakat (giving 2.5% of there money to the poor)

~Sawm (Fasting and self control during the holy month of Ramamn)

~Hajj (Pilgrimageto Mecca once in their lifetime, if they can)

Why Do They Believe That?

The Muslims believe in the five pillars because they think Allah, their god, created man so that he could be worshiped. Allah made the five pillars so that the people he created would have some religious rules to follow. They also believe that Allah gave his prophet, Mohamed, the five pillars so he could spread them among the sinners. (sited from wiki)

In Your Opinion, Why Do They Believe What They Do

I know I am not correct, but I believe that the Muslims believe in Muhammad and Allah because in they wanted some sort of person to look up to and look to in times of hardship. I also believe that Muhammad was trying to spread hope to the regions in the middle east through god. Islam is now a religion that follows strict rules through the teachings of Allah and Muhammad.

Extremists in Islam

One of the very big extremist groups in Islam is ISIS. ISIS is a group in the middle east which emerged through the civil war of Syria. ISIS took land all over Syria and claimed it as Sunni land. Isis started trying to convert the people in Iraq and Syria to Sunni Islam and killed some of the non Sunni believers. ISIS is an extremist group because they believe that everyone should be Sunni and they follow all of the rules of Islam.

Islamic kids poem

Prophet Muhammad (S)

Prophet Muhammad (S)

When truth was lost and hearts frozen

from You, Allah came a Prophet, chosen.

Blessed Prophet Muhammad, obedient to You

taught us the things we ought to do.

He taught us for certain that You are One

and that You have neither a daughter nor son.

He taught us to be good to our mother and father

and that Paradise lies under the feet of our mother.

I love you my Prophet and sing your praise

and follow your Sunna, Prophetic Ways.

One day I will come to visit your tomb

Insh'Allah, that day will be very soon.

Most of this poem consists of beliefs through Mohammad, and also how he saved the Muslims from Sinning.

Islamic Current Event

In Syria, several women have been dispersing from their local village to move to a safer place for them and their children. The reason for this is because of the ongoing Sunni and Shi'ite battles that are occurring in Duber, Syria. Many of the women are going to Bethoncourt, France where there is a largely growing Muslim population. Only one of these women wer found and she said,"My village was filled with violence was filled with violence which was not what Allah wanted us to do. These people are disgracing Allah and Muhammad."

-New York Times

I believe that the community of Muslims is becoming smaller because of the battles between Sunni and Shi'ites. In my perspective I think that they are leaving out of fear for themselves.
