5 Main Religions of the World
By Rachel Sheffield
It is a monotheistic religion, because it believes in one God, but they believe that the God takes many different forms. The main god is, Brahma, although each different form has a different name. Hindus believe in reincarnation, karma, and then cycle of the universe. They believe also that your karma determines what you will reincarnate to next. The main scripture of Hinduism is the Vedas. Hindus worship multiple times a day, usually in their own households. Hindus participate in Holi, Diwali, Kumbh Mela, and Dassera.
Islam is monotheistic with one god named Allah. They also believe in the Shahada, "There is no God but God, and Muhammad is his Prophet." They have the same afterlife belief as Christians. Muslims celebrate Ramadan, Eid Al-Adha, and Eid Al-Fitr. "Muslim" is an Arabic word for "one who submits to god." Islam originated in the Middle East in the 7th century CE. The Quran is the sacred book of Islam that includes all the teachings that the prophet learned from Allah.
