A Study on Islam
Origin of Islam
The Islam religion originated in the Middle East in 700 C.E. Islam. The religion was started based on the teachings of Prophet Muhammad as surrender to Allah, the creator of all things. Many Muslims live in developing countries and work in fields. Children are taught about Islam from birth and are taught the faith through watching their parents. Once the child is old enough they will start to take part in the washing and praying rituals. The children are expected to know their religion as well as an adult by the age of thirteen. The Muslims bury their dead because in the Islam religion they believe that they will live again in their body at the time of resurrection.

The holy books are the writings of people that the Muslims think were gifted to be one of God's prophets. The Islam religion teaches that the relationship between Allah and man is like a relationship between a father and son.
