What is Islam?

Islam is a religion that is related to both the Jewish and Christian religions, which all share all monotheistic (they all believe in one God.). Islam also follows teachings that are similar to those found in Christianity and the Jewish religion. The Islamic holy book is called the Quran.

Islamic people are those who are followers of God, who is called Allah. They also believe that Muhammad was God’s prophet. Other prophets mentioned in the Quran include Adam, Moses, Noah, David, and Jesus.

The most holy place for all Muslims in the world is located in Mecca and is the Kaaba shrine. Each Muslim is supposed to visit the Kaaba on pilgrimage at least once in their life. There are two other very holy places for Muslims which are the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, and the Prophet Muhammad’s mosque in the city of Medina in Saudi Arabia.

Just as Christians believe the Holy Bible is the direct, divine words of God, Muslims believe the Quran contains the direct, divine words of God, as delivered by the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammed.

According to World Population Review, there are currently about 1.9 million Muslims around the world, making Islam the second-largest religion in the world, just behind Christianity. The largest Muslim country is Indonesia.
