    What is Islam and why Muslims believe in it

    What is Islam, and what do Muslims believe?

    Answer: The Islamic religion was founded at the beginning of the seventh century AD by a person named Muhammad. He said that the angel Gabriel had visited him. During these angelic visits that lasted for about 23 years until the death of Muhammad, it is alleged that the angel inspired Mohammed with the words of God. This revelation that I hope for is what the Qur'an is, which is the Book of Sacred Islam. Islam teaches that the Qur'an is the supreme word and is the last revelation by God.

    Muslims, followers of the Islamic religion, believe that the Koran is the word of God full and existing since time immemorial. Moreover, many Muslims reject the existence of the Qur'an in any other language. The translations are not considered authenticated copies of the qoran, which is in Arabic only. Although the qoran is the main book they believe in, the Sunna is the second source of religious belief. The Companions wrote the Sunna and contain the words of Muhammad and his deeds and what he approved.

    The main tenets of Islam are that God is the only true God, and that Muhammad was the Prophet of God. A person can become a Muslim by acknowledging these two colonels. The word "Muslim" means "the person who surrenders to God". Islam claims to be the only true religion from which other religions (including Judaism and Christianity) derive.

    Muslims establish their faith on five pillars / pillars:
    1. Testimony: "There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."
    Prayer: Five prayers must be performed daily.
    Zakat: Giving money to the poor, since all comes from God.
    4. Fasting: In addition to the fasted fast, all Muslims must fast for the month of Ramadan (the ninth month of the Hijri year).
    5. Hajj: Pilgrimage to Mecca, which takes place at least once in the lifetime of the person (during the twelfth month of the Hijri year).

    These five pillars, the framework of obedience to Muslims, are taken with utmost seriousness and professionalism. The entry of a Muslim to Paradise depends on his obedience to these five pillars.

    There are several similarities and fundamental differences between Islam and Christianity. Like Christianity, Islam believes in one God, but unlike Christianity, Islam rejects the concept of the Trinity. Islam accepts portions of the Bible, such as the books of the Law and the Gospels, but rejects most of the Scriptures as devoid of inspiration from God.

    Islam claims that Jesus was only a prophet and not the Son of God (God is only God according to Islam, how does he have a son?) Islam asserts that Jesus, despite his virgin birth, is a creature like Adam from the dust of the earth. Muslims believe that Christ did not die on the Cross; thus they deny one of the basic teachings of Christianity.

    Finally, Islam teaches that entering Paradise is through good deeds and obedience to the Qur'an. In contrast, the Bible shows that man can not reach the scale of God's holiness. Sinners can be saved only because of God's mercy and love and through their faith in Christ.

    It is clear that neither Islam nor Christianity can be true. Either Jesus was the greatest prophet, or Muhammad was the greatest prophet. Either the Bible is the Word of God or the Qur'an is the Word of God. Either we can be saved by accepting the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior or we will be saved by fulfilling the five pillars of Islam. Again we say that the two religions can not be true at the same time. This right, that is, the distinction between the two religions in matters of substance has eternal consequences.
