“ Islam” believed to be the religion of all the prophets revealed by the One and only God (Allah).
“ Say : We believe in Allah, and in that which has been been revealed to us and in that which has been sent down on Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac and Jacob, and the tribes, and that which was given to Moses and Jesus and the prophets of their lord; we make no division between any of them, and to Him (Allah) we surrender (as Muslims).”
ABRAHAMIC TRADITION (as re-established & perfected by God through Muhammad(pbuh) – the last Messenger of Allah & the seal of Prophet hood)
“ Behold the first House of Worship ever set up for mankind was indeed the one in Bakkah (Makkah): rich in blessings and a source of guidance unto all the worlds, full of clear messages. [It is] the place whereon Abraham once stood; and whoever enters it finds inner peace. Hence pilgrimage unto the House (Ka’abah) is duty owed to God by al;l people who are able to undertake it. And as to those who deny the truth – verily, God does not stand in need of anything in all the world.”
“ And thus [it is]: unto every community have We appointed [sacrifice as] an act of worship, so that they may extol the name of God…. [But bear in mind]: never does the flesh reach God, and neither their blood: it is only your God-consciousness (piety) that reaches Him. It is to this end that We have made them (the animals) subservient to your needs, so that you may glorify God for all the guidance with which He has graced you.”
Say: ‘Behold, my prayer, and [all] my acts of devotion [sacrifices], and my living and my dying are for God [alone]; the Sustainer of all the worlds, in whose divinity none has a share: for thus have I been bidden – and I shall [always] be foremost amongst those who surrender themselves unto Him.”
