Everything About Islam
Muslims believe in the god, Allah. They also believe that Muhammad is his holy messenger. Muslims go to a mosque to pray, 5 times a day, every day. They also follow the five pillars, pilgrimage, faith, charity, fasting, and prayer. The first of the five pillars, pilgrimage, means that everyone should make at least one trip to Mecca in their lifetime. The second pillar, faith, means you have to believe in the key beliefs, that Allah is the god, and Muhammad is his messenger. The third pillar, charity, means to give money to other people in need. The fourth pillar, fasting, is an annual tradition to not eat during the month of Ramadan, an Islam holiday. The last pillar, prayer, states that you must pray 5 times a day in a mosque, or just at home if you can't make it. Also, Muslims don't eat pork. Like stated earlier, Muslims pray in a mosque, a church-like facility in which holds faucets, mats, and a praying area. The worship leader in a mosque is the Imam, whilst a mullah is the teacher. A muezzin calls the people to prayer each day, 5 times a day. A Muslim's holy book is the Qu'ran or Koran, which is believed to be a revelation of Allah himself, written in ancient Hebrew. Muslim holidays include Ramadan, which celebrates Allah giving Muhammad messages by having adults fast (not eat), and Eid al Fitr, which celebrates the end of Ramadan, with gifts, food, family, and thanks. Common holy places are the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, which is a shrine, and Mecca, which is Islam's holiest city.

The Last of It
And finally, it comes down to this. All three of these religions have things in common, and one of those things is Abraham. Abraham is mentioned in all of the holy books, and is a common figure in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Second of all, all of the religions believe that there is only one god, and he is the ruler. These religions are all similar in ways, but those were just a few fact about how they are.
