Transcript

  • 1. Comparative Religion Project-Islam
  • 2. Origins and History of Islam <ul><li>Muhammad began having visions in 610 A.D. at age 40 from Allah. He memorized these visions and teachings and taught them to his followers. These visions are now recorded in the Qur’an. </li></ul><ul><li>Mecca is the capital of the religion of Islam. </li></ul>
  • 3. Founder of the Religion <ul><li>The founder of the religion of Islam is the prophet Muhammad. </li></ul>
  • 4. Belief About God <ul><li>The Islamic people believe there is only one god, Allah. </li></ul><ul><li>Allah creates everything in the universe and only Allah is uncreated. </li></ul><ul><li>Comparing anything to Allah is considered a great sin. </li></ul>
  • 5. Belief About Afterlife <ul><li>Muslims believe there is an afterlife. </li></ul><ul><li>On the Day of Judgment all humans will be divided between the eternal destinations of Paradise and Hell. </li></ul>
  • 6. Rituals <ul><li>: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The Five Pillars of Islam are five practices essential to Sunni Islam. Shi’a Muslims subscribe to different sets of pillars which substantially overlap with the Five Pillars. They are: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The shahadah which is the basic creed or tenet of Islam: &quot;I testify that there is none worthy of worship except God and I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of God.&quot; This testament is a foundation for all other beliefs and practices in Islam. Muslims must repeat the shahadah in prayer, and non-Muslims wishing to convert to Islam are required to recite the creed. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Salah, or ritual prayer, which must be performed five times a day. Each salah is done facing towards the Kabba in Mecca. Salah is intended to focus the mind on God, and is seen as a personal communication with him that expresses gratitude and worship. The prayers are recited in the Arabic language and consist of verses from the Qur’an. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Zakat, or alms-giving. This is the practice of giving based on accumulated wealth, and is obligatory for all Muslims who can afford it. A fixed portion is spent to help the poor or needy, and also to assist the spread of Islam. The zakat is considered a religious obligation (as opposed to voluntary charity) that the well-off owe to the needy because their wealth is seen as a &quot;trust from God's bounty&quot;. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Sawm, or fasting during the month of Ramadan. Muslims must not eat or drink (among other things) from dawn to dusk during this month, and must be mindful of other sins. The fast is to encourage a feeling of nearness to God, and during it Muslims should express their gratitude for and dependence on him, atone for their past sins, and think of the needy. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The Hajj, which is the pilgrimage during the Islamic month of Dhu al-Hijjah in the city of Mecca. Every able-bodied Muslim who can afford it must make the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in his or her lifetime. When the pilgrim is about ten kilometers from Mecca, he must dress in Ihram clothing which consists of two white seamless sheets. Rituals of the Hajj include walking seven times around the Kabba, touching the Black Stone, running seven times between Mount Safa and Mount Marwah, and symbolically stoning the Devil in Mina </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 7. Sacred Place of Worship <ul><ul><ul><li>A mosque is a place of worship for Muslims, who often refer to it by its Arabic name, masjid . The word mosque in English refers to all types of buildings dedicated to Islamic worship, although there is a distinction in Arabic between the smaller, privately owned mosque and the larger, &quot;collective&quot; mosque ( masjid jāmi` ). Although the primary purpose of the mosque is to serve as a place of prayer, it is also important to the Muslim community as a place to meet and study. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  • 8. Sacred Writings/Books <ul><li>The Islamic holy books are the records which most of the Muslims believe were dictated by God to various prophets. They are the Suhuf Ibrahim (commonly the Scrolls of Abraham), the Tawrat (commonly the Torah), the Zabur (commonly the Psalms), the Injil (commonly the Gospel), and the Qur’an. </li></ul>
  • 9. Miscellaneous <ul><li>There are 1.4 billion Muslims worldwide, 80% Sunni and 20% Shi’ite. </li></ul><ul><li>Festivals: Ramadan and Ashura. </li></ul><ul><li>Originated in Saudi Arabia, today is the main religion in more than 60 countries. </li></ul>
