Islam was founded in Saudi Arabia somewhere around 600 A.D by Muhummad. In modern day, it is mainly located in the Middle East of Africa. The official Islamic holy book is the "Quar' an".
Beliefs and Practices
Muslims believe that God sent down holy books like the Quran, the Torah, and the Gospel, and revealed them to messengers like Muhammad, Moses, and Jesus. Muslims practice the statement of faith, daily prayers, charity, and fasting.
