We're being deployed to indonesia, an Islam majority
What is Islam?
These religions are actually pretty similar, but Islam's prophet is Muhammad. Abraham had 2 sons, one with Hagar (Ishmael) and one with Sarah(Isaac).
Islam traces back to ismael's side of the family, where after generations muhhamad was born. Muhammad was spoken to by the angel Gabriel, where he was told to spread the messages of the one God, Allah. He was later taken to heaven to see other prophets, like Jesus Abraham and Moses
From then to the day he died Mohammed preached of the teachings of Allah.
The 5 pillars
1)The statement of faith. Saying and believing that there is one God, Allah, and that Muhhamud is his prophit
2)pray 5 times per day facing towards the city of Mecca; this is something you'll see everyday, so it's important to be quiet and respectful while the community prays
3) give to the poor and needy
4)Fast during the daylight hours of the month of Ramadan
5) make the hajj if financially and physically able. The hajj is a journey to Mecca in which you participate in religious practices
Their house of worship is called a mosque. These have towers called minarets, which is where they are called to prayer every day.
Also if you're going to be in an Islam country you're probably going to see their flag a lot. Their symbol is the crescent moon with a star in the middle.
