the followers of Islam are Muslims
All about Islam
Muslims have many beliefs in the religion Islam. One of them is that when they pray for Allah, their god, they face toward the city of Mecca in Jerusalem. Also they follow the five pillars which are faith, prayer, giving zakat (supporting of the needy), fasting during the month of Ramadan, and pilgrimage to Makkah or Mecca once in their life time. They worship in a mosque and a minaret is a tower to call for prayer. A Imam is the prayer leader and a Mullah is the teacher. (A Mullah leads the prayer, traditionally from high atop minaret, but now loudspeakers do this.) The holy book that the religion Islam uses is the Qu'ran (Koran). The Holy days or holidays are Ramada (celebrates Allah giving Muhammad or Allah's profit message) and Eidal al Fitr (celebrates the end of Ramada; gifts, food, family, and thanks). The Holy cities or places are Jerusalem and Mekkah in Jerusalem.
