  11. Islam: Empire of FaithBibliography • http://www.pbs.org/empires/islam/index.html

  12. For Muslims, God is unique and without equal. They attempt to think and talk about God without either making Him into a thing or a projection of the human self

  13. In contrast to many other religions, the basic practice of Islam is simplicity itself. The believer worships God directly without the intercession of priests or clergy or saints. The believer’s duties are summed up in five simple rules called the Five Pillars of Islam: Belief, Worship, Fasting, Almsgiving, and Pilgrimage.

  14. The two foundations of Muslim faith are God’s revelations to Muhammad, known as the Koran, from the Arabic word Qur’an, or “recitation”; and the reports about Muhammad’s life and deeds, which are known as the hadith, from the Arabic word for “report.” The central miracle of Islam is God’s revelation to Muhammad, whose human fallibilities as a mere mortal are repeatedly mentioned in the Koran.

  15. The revelations that comprise the Koran were revealed over a period of more than two decades in two places. The first revelations from the period of Muhammad’s residence in Mecca are short and incantatory verses of extraordinary poetic beauty.

  16. The later revelations from the period after Muhammad immigrated to Medina are longer, legalistic texts appropriate to a developing community of believers in need of rules and regulations.

  17. Muslims believe that God had previously revealed Himself to the earlier prophets of the Jews and Christians, such as Abraham, Moses, and Jesus. Muslims therefore accept the teachings of both the Jewish Torah and the Christian Gospels.

  18. They believe that Islam is the perfection of the religion revealed first to Abraham (who is considered the first Muslim) and later to other prophets. Muslims believe that Jews and Christians have strayed from God’s true faith but hold them in higher esteem than pagans and unbelievers.

  19. Islam, followed by more than a billion people today, is the world’s fastest growing religion and will soon be the world’s largest. The most populous Muslim countries are Bangladesh, Pakistan, and India. The number of Muslims in Indonesia alone (175 million) exceeds the combined total in Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Iran, the traditional heartlands of Islam.
