    Islam Final ProjectThe Muslim Way
    #1: What are the central religious and moral teachings of Islam?
    There are several objects and people that are the central religious and moral teachings of Islam. First the Ka’ba is an example of central religious and moral teachings of Islam. The Ka’ba was a small cube or temple located in Mecca. At the Ka’ba people would come to pray, and it was at this time when there was peace and all the fighting and tension among other tribes stopped, and trade and a mix of culture started to occur. The 5 Pillars are also another very important to the central religious and moral teachings in Islam. The first pillar is called Shahadah. Shahadah is when Muslims recite the words, “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet.” Muslims recite this sentence may times a day, for they believe the oneness of God must be engraved in their hearts and minds. The second pillar is called Salat. Salat is when Muslims are required to pray five times a day: dawn, noon, mid-afternoon, sunset and nightfall. When Muslims pray, they all face toward Mecca as a reminder of unity of Islam. The third pillar is called Zakat. Zakat is when Muslims are required to share what they have with each other. Also to show appreciation for God’s generosity, Muslims pay a tax each year on their possessions, and Islam tries to develop a social conscience, which is an obligation to help ease the suffering of others. The fourth pillar is called Sawn. Sawn is when during the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, called Ramadan, Muslims fast because that was when Muhammad received his revelations and in that same month, years later he fled to Medina. Also Muslims fast from sunrise to sundown daily to remind them all of the need for constant help from God. Lastly, the fifth pillar is called Hajj. The Hajj is when Muslims go on a pilgrimage to the Ka’ba, the shrine in the Great Mosque of Mecca. Islam teaches that Muslims should visit the Ka’ba at least once, if possible. All people dress alike in plain white cloth when visiting, to symbolize equality and the international community of Islam. Next, Muhammad is another example of the central religious and moral teachings of Islam. Muhammad was the messenger of god. He was the messenger of god because one day when he was meditating in a cave he had a vision that an angel appeared as man and told him that was to deliver a simple message. That message was that he was the prophet of God, and there is only one god, and that is Allah. Muhammad preached this message to the community, some people like this idea of one god but others didn’t. Muhammad also preached that everyone was equal before god. Muhammad continued to receive messages from god time to time and these messages were collected into chapters and make up the Koran which is Islam’s holy book. The Koran consists of 114 Surahs or chapters. The Koran is viewed as the authoritative guide for human beings. Lastly, Sharia is an example of the central religious and moral teachings of Islam. The Sharia is the central code of religion and behavior. It is both a religion and a way of life, and it means “the way”. The Sharia was also based on the Koran. Overall, there are many things that are the central religious and moral teachings of Islam.

    ...
    The Muslim civilization created links among the three continents of Asia, Europe and Africa in many ways. Islam first started to spread from Mecca and Medina. Islam spread into the Middle East Europe, the Mediterranean and Africa. Islam was spreading into these areas for three reasons. The first reason is their enemies such as Persia and Byzantine were weak because neither of them had a strong military, unlike Islam. The second reason Islam was very successful was because of their cavalry. The Muslims cavalry was fast, daring and the experienced soldiers overwhelmed their enemies. The third reason was they had a clear objective from the Koran. Muslim forces had one leader and knew their goals for success. Also, Islam’s first four caliphs were very powerful and dominated against other regions. Next, the Hajj, the fifth out of the five pillars in Islam, brought many people together and helped demonstrate unity between people. Once again, equality in Islam was liked by numerous people and that helped Islam create links in Asia, Europe and Africa too. Then when Muslim did conquer regions, they were very respectful to those people’s religion and culture, many people then wanted to convert to Muslim, which therefore made Islam even larger. Lastly, Muslim influence of architecture, dress, food and weapons to other people, started to show in numerous ways and places. Overall, Muslim civilization was able to create links among Asia, Europe and Africa in many ways.

    This image represents equality. It represents equality because it shows different people, man verse women and it shows people with different skin colors, but they are still all equal before God. Equality was another very important thing that many people liked in Islam and it brought some people to Islam, so they could then convert to the Muslim religion.
