This article lists the information on different religions and what they believe and who they follow. I decided to focus on the three main religions that are most commonly talked about, which is Islam,Christianity,and Judaism . in the (THE BIG RELIGION CHART) they charted what different types of religions believe. Muslim people study the Quran, Christianity studies the bible and Judaism studies the Torah .in the article it also says that "most religion believe we are here to serve god and worship him.". In this chart it states that Christians believe in eternal hell or heaven or temporary purgatory which means temporary suffering . It states that salvation is through faith in Christ . Muslim people believe in Allah and that they pray five times a day.They believe in keeping a healthy lifestyle meaning not drinking ,smoking, and substance abuse. Islam is based on the teaching of prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) they also believe in paradise or hell , they are also not allowed to eat pork. The chart states Jewish people believe that boy must get circumcised at birth,. They worship god at the Synagogue on Saturdays they don't eat pork or non-kosher meat which means they don't eat meat that has not been prayed over.
This article talks about the concept of God in the Islamic faith.Based on (Besheer,Mohamed , Pew research center) Muslim people believe in monotheism this means they believe in one God and that He created everyone and has power over everything . They refer to this god as Allah which means God in the Arabic language. Muslim people believe that Allah created them for one purpose and that purpose is to worship him. The Muslim people study the Quran. Muslim people believe that god cannot be seen or cannot be a human, they believe that no one knows what God looks like. They believe that there is a heaven and a hell.Muslim people believe that Allah sent prophets to guide the people in worshiping him, these messengers were Adam,Noah,Abraham,Moses,Jesus,and Muhammad peace be upon all of them.When the last prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the Quran was left behind to guide the people.Islam teaches that you should only submit to only one god and worship him till you die. There are five commandment in Islam is Shahadah which is claiming and believing “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of God’’, Salah and that is prayer this is five times a day, Zakat which is to give to charity if you are financially stabled, Swam which is to fast during the month of Ramadan Muslim people must abstain from food and water, and last is to go to Hajj which is Mecca .
