ISLAM

Muslims believe `there is no God, but God (Allah) and that Muhammad is his prophet. Islam or `submission` is structured on a five `pillar` guide to righteous living: prayer five times a day, fasting during the month of Ramadan, zakat giving to the less fortunate, performing the haj pilgrimage to the holy shrines and belief in the Creator. Allah`s revelations to Muhammad are recorded in the Muslim holy book or Qur`an.
There are more than a billion Muslims in the world of which the most populous country is Indonesia. 80% ascribe to orthodox Sunni doctrine while a Shia`a minority focuses on the martyrdom of Muhammad's grandson Husainat Karbala in AD 680. I slam`s most sacred sites are Mecca and Medina on the Red Sea coast ofSaudi Arabia, Jerusalem from where belief holds the Prophet made his miraculous night journey into Heaven, Karbala in present-day Iraq and Bandeh Aceh in Sumatra.
