Origins of IslamThe origin of Islam can be traced back to 7th century Saudi Arabia. Islam is thus the youngest of the great world religions. The prophet Muhammad (circa 570-632 A.D.) introduced Islam in 610 A.D. after experiencing what he claimed to be an angelic visitation. Muhammad dictated the Qur'an, the holy book of Islam, which Muslims believe to be the preexistent, perfect words of Allah.

The 'Five Pillars' of Islam are the foundation of Muslim life:1.Faith or belief in the Oneness of God and the finality of the prophethood of Muhammad;2.Establishment of the daily prayers;3.Concern for and almsgiving to the needy;4.Self-purification through fasting; and5.The pilgrimage to Makkah for those who are able.
