[2015] Najla Braddock (Humanities 8B): Islam

The Muslims believe in one god, who was unique, very merciful, and incomparable. Most Arab Muslims and Arab Christians call him "Allah", which also means God. The Muslims believe he had no son or partner. They worshiped him and him alone. They believe that God is the Almighty, creator, and sustainer of everything in the whole universe. Everything is done by his will. Whatever he wills is, and whatever he does not will is not and will never be. He knows what happens, what will happen, and how it will happen. He is the power of all things, is able to do everything. The Muslims have different beliefs about god. For example, they reject that God rested on the 7th day of creation, and that he wrestled one of his angels.

Muhammad was born is Mecca (Saudi Arabia). During his meditation at Mount Hira Gabriel who was an angel brought him a revelation later put into the Quran. He left Mecca because he preached about the belive in Allah and it caused conflicts. When he went to Medina it's called Hijra which started the Islamic Calender
