Transcript of "Islam part 2"

  1. 1. Islam-part II
  2. 2. <ul><li>Muhammed taught that God had revealed the Qur'an as a sacred guide for all humanity. </li></ul><ul><li>The Qur'an was not quickly translated into other languages, because the muslims feared that translations may alter the purity of the language. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Muslims, much like the Jewish people, memorize and recite their holy book in its original language. </li></ul><ul><li>This is a bit harder, for example, for Christians, who did allow their holy books to be translated into multiple languages. </li></ul>
  4. 4. The Five Pillars of Islam <ul><li>Every Muslim must comply with the following if he is to be a true muslim: </li></ul><ul><li>1.(Shahada) Recite the profession of Faith: &quot;I bear witness there is no deity except Allah and that Muhammed is his servant and messenger. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>2. (Salah) Pray five times a day facing Mecca, the holy city of Islam. </li></ul><ul><li>3. (Zakat) Give alms to the poor. (Money or food). </li></ul><ul><li>4.(Sawm) Fast from first light to sunset during the month of Ramadan (Ninth month of the muslim year- Muslims hold this moth sacred, because it is the month of the first vision). </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>5. (Haji) If possible, make a pilgrimage to Mecca once in a lifetime. (at least). </li></ul>
  7. 7. The Muslim Virtues <ul><li>Temperance </li></ul><ul><li>Humility </li></ul><ul><li>Justice </li></ul><ul><li>Generosity </li></ul><ul><li>Tolerance </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Obedience to law. </li></ul><ul><li>Courage. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Haraam <ul><li>Muslims are forbidden to eat pork (like the Jewish, they believe pigs to be unclean creatures -BTW, this is also found in the bible). </li></ul><ul><li>Man was restricted only to four wives. (ONLY!) And the man was required to treat them equally. </li></ul>
  10. 10. <ul><li>Islam urged freeing slaves as a sign of good faith. </li></ul><ul><li>If a man decided to keep his slaves, he must treat them well. </li></ul><ul><li>Islam discourages images of animals and people and specially images of God and Muhammed. </li></ul>
  11. 11. <ul><li>Many scholars argue that due to the restriction of artistic reproductions of God's creation, muslim arabs developed instead the most elaborate and beautiful designs in calligraphy. </li></ul><ul><li>The designs we call 'arabesques' are an example of how human creativity blossomed in spite of a religious restriction. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Jihad <ul><li>In its definition, Jihad means a 'struggle' to defend the faith. </li></ul><ul><li>Anyone dying in Jihad will be rewarded in heaven. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>The greatest Jihad, said Muhammed, was against oneself. </li></ul><ul><li>Jihad refers to the struggle to be a proper muslim. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Mosque <ul><li>The mosque is the place of worship for muslims. (like a Church for a christian or a Synagogue for a Jewish person). </li></ul><ul><li>There are no formal priesthood in Islam. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Imam and the Call to Prayer <ul><li>Instead of 'priests', muslims rely on matters of faith on Imams, religious leaders who interpret the Qur'an and are scholars of the faith. </li></ul><ul><li>On every Friday, at noon, male muslims are called to gather together for prayer and a sermon (delivered by an Imam). </li></ul><ul><li>Women would say the same prayers at home. </li></ul>
