Islam

"Islam" means "Peace through the submission to God. "Muslim" means "anyone or anything that submits itself to the will of God". They believe in the god Abraham, they have a holy book called Koran. The five pillars is one of there traditions. They pray five times a day and they wash there nose, hair, they don't eat all day, and they wash there hands as well. Muslims believe in and acknowledge all the prophets of old, from Adam to Jesus. Muslims believe that they brought the message of peace and submission (islam) to different peoples at different times. Muslims also believe that these prophets were "muslims" because they submitted their wills to God. Muslim women wear the head-covering (hijab) in fulfillment of God's decree to dress modestly. From a practical standpoint, it serves to identify one as attempting to follow God in daily life and, therefore, protects women from unwanted advances from men. This type of modest dress has been worn by righteous women throughout history. Prominent examples are traditional Catholic Nuns, Mother Teresa and the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus..
