Although the idea of God is different for every religion, the essence remains the same- followers extol the One Being and incorporate the commandments of their religion in their lives; these injunctions are aimed to structure their life on a model of an exalted standard of character.
The second-largest religion in the world, Islam articulates the belief of Oneness of God. Since the advent of Islam in the 7th century, it is one of the fastest growing religions of the world. The Muslims believe that the Holy Quran was revealed by Allah to the Last of the Messengers- Prophet Muhammad. The laws that God is said to have devised so that man may order his life are explained in their totality as the ‘Shariah’ (Turner 206). The Quran makes it incumbent on Muslims to bear witness to the Oneness of Allah, to offer prayers five times a day facing the Kabbah, fast in the Holy month of Ramadan, offer Zakat to the poor and if affordable, go for pilgrimage to the Holy Kabbah in Mecca. Muslims also belief in the books sent down by Allah, in angels and messengers and in the Hereafter. Islam is a religion of peace and a good Muslim is one who not only follows the injunctions of Allah but also gives due rights to his fellow brothers and
