The Islamic Religon

Origins of the Islamic Religon

People who are Islamic try to live their life according to gods word. They made their religious symbol the moon and star because they lived in area that was so hot they had to travel by night. The moon and stars guided them at night so they thought of making that their symbol. They believe that there is only one god and that he has multiple prophets, those prophets are Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad. The prophets job were to spread word of the religion across the land.

Muhammad

Muhammad was one of the prophets of the Islamic Religion. He was the last of the prophets and most people believe that he was the greatest. What he did was one day while he was meditating he had a revelation that he was going to be a prophet and the teacher of the new belief, Islam. When he had his revelation he began by telling the people of Mecca. Some of the people believed him while others prosecuted him. He fled to Medina so his prosecutors couldn't catch him. When he was in Medina he raised an army and went back to Mecca to convert all the people who weren't yet Islam. He did it without blood shed and slowly his word kept on spreading.
