Why Islam?

Why are people Islam? people believe in islam for the same reason they belive in anything else. that is to say, because it is the truth. A more detailed reply would be that in peoples view the central doctrine of all religions is the existence of God and man's relationship with Him, so that the religion that can succeed in establishing a true relationship between God and man must be true, and the truth of a faith is surely a sufficient reason for believing in it.

How was the religion founded and how was it spreaded

this is how

Islam was founded in the 7th century C.E. by the prophet Muhammad based on revelations he received from God. The community took shape around the Quran and the teaching and example of Muhammad in the cities of Mecca and Medina in today’s Saudi Arabia. An Islam means “to submit” or “to obey,” derived from a word for peace. a Muslims believes that there are to conform their lives in accordance with a amsing revealed path of submission to God. Islam teaches that God is merciful and compassionate. God promises the faithful peace and equality and entrance to eternal life.islam spread following the death of Muhammad in 632 AD. It spread, as did many things, along trade routes of the day between people groups. There are stories of conversion by sword which helped it along, but that is generally discountedI

Muhammad

The last and final prophet that God sent to humanity was the Prophet Muhammad. Muhammad explained, interpreted and lived the teachings of Islam. The Prophet Muhammad is the greatest of all prophets for many reasons, but mainly because the results of his mission have brought more people into the pure belief in One God than any other prophet. Muhammad was born in the year 570 C.E. Muslims believe that, when he was 40, the angel Gabriel appeared to him in a cave where he was meditating, and, over the next 23 years, revealed to him messages from God. These messages were compiled into the Qur’an. Muslims do not regard Muhammad as divine with God, but as the last of the prophets. Muslims believe that the prophets of the Hebrew Scriptures and Jesus were true prophets, but in Muhammad the prophetic tradition was perfected.

G)The Five Pillars of Islam represent the duties of a Muslim. Like the Ten Commandments, they provide a spiritual foundation and function. These duties will be explained in detail in the following pages.


the pillars

The First pillar is- Shahada- a brief prayer proclaiming the oneness of God and faith in Islam. Children memorize the shahada, an action which introduces them into the Islamic community.


The second pillar is- Salat- It requires Muslims to pray five times a day toward Mecca. They must pray at sunset, in the evening, at dawn, at noon, and in the afternoon.


The third Pillar is- Zakzt- Almsgiving, or zakat, is the third basic requirement. Muslims are expected to give to the poor and sick. Although the zakat is not regulated by the government, sincere Muslims regard it as an important religious duty.


The fourth pillar is- Sawm- is perhaps the most demanding of the Five Pillars. It requires that Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan. Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. During this period, food and drink are not allowed between dawn and sunset.


The fifth pillar is- Hajj- Hajj is the pilgrimage to Mecca which every Muslim is expected to make at least once. A pilgrimage is a journey to a sacred place or shrine. Unlike the other four Pillars, the Hajj can be skipped if it involves great hardships.
