Islam is the belief that there is one and only one God,

called Allah in Arabic (or God in English and same God worshiped in

Judaism and Christianity) and that God assigned prophets and

messengers to call their people to worship God as the one and only

one God. Islam has the belief also that Muhammad is the last God

prophet and messenger who calls people for Islam. But one thing

that's important to know is that all God prophets called their

people to full submission to God (that is the meaning of the Arabic

word of Islam)

Muslims believe in

1) the One, Unique, Incomparable, Merciful God - the Sole

Creator and Sustainer of the Universe;

2) the Angels created by Him;

3) the Prophets through whom His revelations were brought to

mankind, Muslims respect and revere Jesus (peace be upon him). They

believe that He was born miraculously. They consider him one of the

greatest of God's messengers to mankind.;

4) the Day of Judgment and individual accountability for actions

and 2nd life after death

5) God's complete authority over destiny, be it good or bad;

and

6) God holy books including Torah, the Bible, and Quran.

Muslims believe that God sent His messengers and prophets to all

people and God's final message to humanity, a reconfirmation of the

eternal message and a summing up of all that had gone before, was

revealed to the Last Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through

the Archangel Gabriel.

Muslims also believe in Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and all

the other prophets (peace be upon them all). Although some areas of

Christianity, Judaism and Islam differ, the main idea is that

Muslims believe Christianity is an extension of Judaism, and Islam

is an extension of Christianity.

Since the days of Adam and Abraham the message continued to be

forgotten over time so Moses was sent, and when the message was

forgotten again Jesus was sent to "reaffirm the Law."

Around 600 years later, Muhammad was sent as the last messenger

to bring to all of mankind the original message of monotheism. As a

test to believers, God changed certain commands and rituals, which

is why there are some differences in obligations and prohibitions

amongst Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Although Muslims believe in Jesus (and that the Virgin Mary was

imbued with the spirit - "ruh" - of God) and even the second coming

of Jesus, Muslims disagree with the idea that Jesus is the son of

God or is God himself.

Most Christian scholars believe that the Bible itself never says

Jesus claimed to be God or the son of God, so for Muslims it makes

sense to believe in Jesus as a great Messenger. Muslims honor all

the messengers and are taught to live in peace. After all, the

meaning of the word Islam is "peace."

For a thorough definition of the words "Islam" and "Muslim", the

5 pillars of Islam, and the 6 articles of faith, refer to link

below.

One God. Jesus not god, God not Jesus.

Muslims believe in: (the main 5 bases)

1. That god (Allah) is one. He has no wife. No son nor

partner.

2. Allah is evenhanded, equitable, just, and fair.

3. Since he is just and fair, he sent Messengers to guide the

humanity to the right path.

4. After the Last Messenger who is Muhammad (peace be upon him),

who will guide the humanity? The Imam.. Allah told his messenger

Muhammad (peace be upon him) that the Imams after him will be the

leaders to the day of judgment, because humanity cannot live in

peace if there is no WISE leader.

5. The day of judgment.

* Branches of Islam:

- Muslims believe in ALL the prophets. They believe in Jesus,

but they believe that Allah sent the last messenger after

Jesus.

- Their holy book is the "Quran".

- Since Allah created the human kind, he must know about our

selves more than we do(because when you create a Robot for example

I am sure you know about the Robot more than the Robot it self),

therefore he gave us orders to orgenize our life. Such us no Lying,

no Stilling, no bad stuff (you can check them in Islamic religious

books). Also he persuaded us on Good deeds such as helping poor,

and feeding hunger (also you can check them).

- Finally in Islamic rules everything you do, every act must

classified in one of the followings:

1. "must be done"... such as Fasting in the month of Ramadan.

(if you do it you make good deeds (hasanat) and if you don't do it

you are making sins).

2. "Should NOT be done" ... such as Lying. (if you do it you are

making sins)

3. "Mustahab"... those are the deeds that Allah like's you to

do.. such as helping poor..(if you don't do it you are NOT making

sins, but if you DO it you are making greate deeds

(hasanat)...)

4. "Makrooh)... those are the deeds that Allah DONT like you to

do. Such as ... screaming at your teacher... (if you DO it you

don't make sins, but if you don't do it you are making Greate

Hasant).

5. "Mubah".. those are the things that you are free to do (no

sins no nothing)... Such as drinking water. Riding your

bycicle.

Muslims believe in Islam. Islam is not a new religion, but the same

truth that God revealed through all His prophets to every people.

For more than a fifth of the world's population, Islam is both a

religion and a complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of

peace, mercy, and forgiveness.

The word "Islam" itself means "Submission to Allah." The

religion of Islam is not named after a person as in the case of

"Christianity" which was named after Jesus Christ, "Buddhism" after

Gutama Buddha , "Marxism" after Karl Marx, and "Confucianism" after

Confucius.

Similarly, Islam is not named after a tribe like "Judaism" after

the tribe of Judah and "Hinduism" after the Hindus. The Arabic word

"Islam" means the submission or surrender of one's will to the will

of the only true god worthy of worship, "Allah" (known as God "the

Father" in Christianity).

Anyone who does indeed submit to the will of Allah as required

by Islam is termed a "Muslim," which means one who has submitted to

the will of Allah. Many people in the West have developed the sad

misinformed trend of calling Islam "Muhammadenism" and it's

followers "Muhammadins." This is a totally foreign word to Muslims

and unrecognized by them. No Muslim has ever called his religion

"Muhammadenism" or called himself a "Muhammadin."

Muslims believe that "Allah" (or God in English and same God in

Judaism and Christianity) is the one and only one god of

everything.

Muslims believe in one God and that Muhammad is his

messenger.

some Qur'an verses to show you the Muslim understanding of

God:

112:1-4

Say: He is Allah, the One and Only;

Allah, the Eternal, Absolute;

He begetteth not, nor is He begotten;

And there is none like unto Him.

2:256

Allah - there is no god except Him, the Ever-Living, the

Sustainer of all existence. Neither sleepiness overtakes Him nor

sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on

the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His

permission? He knows what is before them and what is behind them,

and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He

wills. His Kursi (throne) extends over the heavens and the earth,

and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the

Most Great.

Muslims believe that Muhammad is the last God

messenger.

Muslims believe in God, his angels, his Books, his

messengers, the Day of Judgment, destiny.

Muslims believe: that God is One: that He communicates with

human beings via special people called prophets, two of whom were

Jesus and Muhammad, God bless them and grant them peace; that five

prophets (Abraham, David, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad) were given

codified books of prophecy; in angels; the Day of Judgment; and

Divinely ordained fate.

They believe there is only one deity worthy of worship, and that

the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is His

messenger.

Muslims believe that there is one god,only one god that created

every thing,even they don't believe that Jesus is god,or god in

three heads in one, they believe that god gave Jesus power to

create not to be god, also they relive that Jesus and Moses are

just prophets nothing more nothing less.

Refer to related question below.

The religion of Islam was begun early in the 7th century A.D. by

a man named Muhammad. He claimed to have been visited by the angel

Gabriel. During these angelic visitations, which continued for

about 23 years until Muhammad's death, the angel purportedly

revealed to Muhammad the words of God (called "Allah" in Arabic and

by Muslims). These dictated revelations comprise the Qur'an,

Islam's holy book. Islam teaches that the Qur'an is the final

authority and the last revelation of Allah.

Muslims, the followers of Islam, believe the Qur'an to be the

preexistent and perfect word of Allah. Further, many Muslims reject

all other language versions of the Qur'an. A translation is not a

valid version of the Qur'an, which only exists in Arabic. Although

the Qur'an is the main holy book, the Sunnah is considered the

second source of religious instruction. The Sunnah was written by

Muhammad's companions about what Muhammad said, did, and

approved.

The key beliefs of Islam are that Allah is the only true God and

that Muhammad was Allah's prophet. By simply stating these beliefs,

a person can convert to Islam. The word "Muslim" means "one who

submits to Allah." Islam purports to be the one true religion from

which all other religions are derived (including Judaism and

Christianity).

Muslims base their lives on the five pillars:

1. The testimony of faith: "There is no true god but God

(Allah), and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of God."

2. Prayer: five prayers must be performed every day.

3. Giving: one must give to the needy, as all comes from

Allah.

4. Fasting: besides occasional fasting, all Muslims must fast

during the celebration of Ramadan (the ninth month of the Islamic

calendar).

5. Hajj: the pilgrimage to Mecca (Makkah) should be performed at

least once in a lifetime (during the twelfth month of the Islamic

calendar).

These five tenets, the framework of obedience for Muslims, are

taken seriously and literally. A Muslim's entrance into paradise

hinges on obedience to these five pillars.

In relation to Christianity, Islam has several similarities and

significant differences. Like Christianity, Islam is monotheistic,

but in opposition to Christianity, Islam rejects the concept of the

Trinity. Islam accepts certain portions of the Bible, such as the

Law and the Gospels, but rejects the majority of it as slanderous

and uninspired.

Islam claims that Jesus was a mere prophet, not God's Son (only

Allah is God, Muslims believe, and how could He have a Son?).

Rather, Islam asserts that Jesus, though born of a virgin, was

created just as Adam, from the dust of the earth. Muslims believe

Jesus did not die on the cross; thus, they deny one of the central

teachings of Christianity.

Finally, Islam teaches that paradise is gained through good

works and obedience to the Qur'an. The Bible, in contrast, reveals

that man cannot measure up to the holy God. Only because of His

mercy and love can sinners be saved through faith in Christ

Answer:

The six articles of faith, in Islam are:

1) That God is The Only God - with no partners, no sons or

daughters.

2) That God created the Angels.

3) That God sent the Prophets - from Adam through Muhammad.

4) That God revealed certain scriptures (books) to some of His

Prophets.

5) That God will raise everyone back to life for the Day of

Judgment.

6) That God has created both free will, and destiny.

Refer to related questions below.

Muslims believe in the One and Only, Unique God of Abraham - who

has NO partners, NO equals, and NO children; and that Muhammad

(peace be upon him) is the Last and Final Prophet of God sent to

Mankind.

We believe that the Jews and Christians do not have the full

message, and that their books and beliefs have been corrupted.

Especially Christians because they think that Jesus the Messiah

(peace be upon him) claimed to be more than a man. they say that

God had a son - and this is just Roman, pagan religion taking the

place of what Jesus really taught.

God is One and Only One. The way to salvation is to recognize

this fact. No one is worthy of worship except the One God. No one

else is any kind of deity except God alone.

Muhammad brought the final Law of God for all Mankind. After

Jesus, who is the Messiah and will return to Earth, Muhammad was

the Messenger of the Covenant. That is the one who is foretold - by

even Jesus. the Prophet who would bring the long-awaited Kingdom of

God on Earth.

they believe in peace and being trustworthy
