i think q&a box here perhaps ?
the five pillars of Islam
The testification of faith. As with other Abrahamic faiths, Muslims belive in the onness of God (Allah), and in Muhammad as his servant and final Prophet.
5 daily prayers have been mandated upon Muslims:
Fajr (before dawn), Dhur (noon), Asr (afternoon), Maghrib (before dusk), and Isha (at night).
While charity is always encouraged, able Muslims must donate 2.5% of their wealth each year to the needy, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.
Each year, during the 9th Islamic month of Ramadan, able Muslims fast from dawn to sunset for 29/30 days, followed by Eid, a celebration and prayer.
The piligramage, or Hajj, is mandated for every able Muslim. At least once in their lifetime, a Muslim must complete a pilgrimage to the holy city of Makkah.
What are the main sources of Islamic beliefs and practices?
The Qur'an, which Muslims believe is the divinely revealed word of God, and the Sunnah, which refers to the example of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Much of what is known about the Sunnah is from a collection of sayings or reports known as Hadith.
What do Muslims believe about Jesus?
Muslims overwhelmingly revere Jesus and believe that he was born to the Virgin Mary through an act of God, without a father, just as Adam is believed to have been created by God without a father or mother. The Qur’an describes his conception and birth and his many miracles such as healings of the sick. The Qur’an also emphasizes that Jesus was a great prophet of God and a messenger who received revelation from God, but that he was, like all other prophets, only a human being.
For Muslims, God, in his divine transcendence, is incomparable to His creation in every aspect, and therefore He does not procreate, even metaphorically. Muslims also believe that Jesus was not crucified but instead was taken to heaven and will return to earth to live out the rest of his life, a belief commonly known as the second coming of Jesus.
Is it true that Muslim men can marry more than one woman?
Monogamy is the ideal in marriage, as reflected in God’s creation of life in pairs of male and female, according to the account given in various Qur’anic verses. The vast majority of Muslims today are monogamous. While it is permitted for Muslim men to marry more than one wife, it is with the condition that he treat his wives equally, a standard that even the Qur’an warns is difficult to achieve, clearly implying a preference for monogamy.
How does Islam view other religions?
We believe that respect for freedom of religion and conscience is a basic Islamic principle, and we believe that diversity, including religious diversity, is part of God’s divine plan. Moreover, we believe that the salvation of all people, Muslims included, lies with God alone.
