CBBC - Newsround - What is Islam?

CBBC - Newsround - What is Islam? | Religions | Scoop.it
Islam is the second largest religion in Britain and the world.  Current events require that we understand the fundamentals of Islam. With one billion believers (called "Muslims"), it is both the fastest growing and the second largest religion in the world. Dating back more than fourteen thousand years, Islam began in Arabia. This excellent introduction answers basic questions about the faith: What is the Qur'an? What are the five pillars of Islam? Who is Muhammad? How do Muslims view other religions? Why do some Muslims cover up? What can Muslims eat? Do Muslims all have the same beliefs?
