ISLAM, the religion of the Muslims, that teaches ' that there is only one God'.
Like Judaism and Christianity it arose in the Middle- East. Muhammad the final prophet of God was the founder of Islam.

Islam has many comparisons with Judaism and Christianity. Although Muslims deny Jesus as Supreme God they honor him as a major prophet.

The following are five most important beliefs of Islam:
Belief in a single God Allah
Belief in the revealed scriptures
Belief in Angels
Belief in the Prophets
Belief in the Day of Judgment.

Muslims pray five times a day at early morning, noon, afternoon, sundown, and evening. Like city of Jerusalem for Jews and Christians, Islam gives spiritual significant to the city of Mecca.

The Qur'an

Around the year 610 the truth of Islam was revealed by God through the angel Gabriel (jibril) to Muhammad. These written revelations from God is called Qu'ran. Qu'ran consists of 114 chapters (Surah). The first surah in the beginning "Praise be to Allah"
Lord of the Worlds! or in the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
It is one of the most famous passages of Qu'ran:
Allah-there is no God but Allah the Ever-lasting . Whatever is in the Heavens and whatever is in the Earth-belongs to Him. He is the most High, the Great. Like the Torah, Bible, Bagavat Gita the Qur'an stands as one of the World's sustaining relgious holy scripture.
Islam is the second largest relegion in the world.
