Apparently, Islam is the second prevalent religion globally and comprises of over one billion followers. Furthermore, the 2001 census revealed that the total number of Muslims in America was 1591000 constituting three percent of the population. As Muslims, we believe in one God. Additionally, Islam in Arabic refers to submission to God and happens to be the youngest religion globally (Lewis & Buntzie, 40). Islam is a monotheistic religion that emanated from Prophet Muhammad teachings. From the start, Muhammad got absorbed in the religion. He could leave for Mt. Hira and spend days and nights meditating and praying. During one night while he was still praying, Angel Gabriel approached him and proclaimed him as Allah’s messenger to spread the faith among the Arabian people. Consequently, he openly announced to the people that he was Allah’s prophet commissioned divinely to guide the Arabians to a monotheistic faith. Muhammad condemned idol worshipping that was prevalent among the people but contrary to expectation, his own people turned against him and abused him. Some Arabs planned to kill him, prompting him to seek refuge in Medina. Surprisingly, he gathered more followers in Medina while he preached his religion. Apparently, Muslims believe in five pillars of Islam. The first statement is Allah is the only God and his messenger is Muhammad. Secondly, every person must pray five times each day while facing Mecca. The third is offering of alms and the fourth pillar is fasting during the holy month of Ramadan, which happens to be the ninth month in the Muslim year. The fifth pillar is making of the pilgrimage once in an individual’s lifetime (Lewis & Buntzie, 43). Muslims worship in a mosque and in every mosque, there is a place where individuals leave their shoes. However, the mosque has no furniture or statues because we believe that they are blasphemous. Women also go to worship in the mosque but sit separately from men as a sign of modesty and avoiding distraction, but mostly women pray at home. Moreover, Islam religion values and respects women highly. The Holy Quran depicts equality of both women and men before God. Consequently, Islam views a woman whether married or single as a person who must possess her own rights. According to Islam, the responsibilities of both women and men happen to be harmonizing and collaborative. This implies that responsibilities of both men and women are impartial and balanced in terms of totality. However, although Islam permits a man to marry four wives, there exist some restrictions. One of the restrictions is that the man must treat all the wives with equality in terms of love, respect and fairness. If the man is incapable of complying with the stated restriction, he should stick to marrying one wife only. Apparently, a major reason why Islam allows an individual to marry close to four wives is that it does not support divorce. Apparently, the Holy Quran contains Muhammad teachings. Some of his teachings are that idol worshipping is a curse and individuals must refrain from the practice. Another teaching is that all men are equivalent and any sort of distinction must not exist among prophet’s followers, implying that inferiority and superiority should not exist. Muhammad also affirmed that every Muslim must pray on every Friday at the mosque and give charity to the underprivileged. Muhammad favored kind treatment of slaves and women and strived to improve women superiority in Arabia. Muhammad favored kind treatment of women and slaves and strived to improve women superiority in Arabia. Additionally, ended female infanticide and ensured that women were on the same level with men in terms of legal processes.
