The religion of Islam intertwines with laws and religious beliefs, and the Koran, the holy scripture of the Islamic faith, holds the moral values of the Muslims. Muslims live by the Koran. The Koran consists of the Five Pillars of Islam, prohibitions, and morals that all Muslims follow constantly. Allah the one god of the Islamic faith is looked upon by each Muslim. Each Muslim has a personal relationship with god.
(8) From that we can also tell that they work together as a team ,but they also work well apart from one another and can function as a society together . (9) Document 3 claims that muslim people are equal in “size” , they would rather be dead than alive, many prefer to be held to a low standard of importance rather than being held up and labeled as an important person, and they stick to their religious grounds and always partake in their activities.(10) Many people would not like to be seen this way but Muslims don’t seem to mind it.

The Islam religion, believed by Muslims, has spread across the globe at rapid speeds. Muhammad ibn Abdullah started the religion. The religion began in Mecca. The religion was made known in 610 CE. The two major themes of the religion are “Allah is the one God” and the importance of charity.
Like most things that are society based, religion has evolved alongside our own culture. America is a melting pot of different ethnic backgrounds and cultures making it a perfect place for religion to adapt and flourish. For this analysis, I am drawing from “Civil Religion in America” by Robert N. Bellah (1967) on his ideas of American civil religion. In the text Bellah (1967) argues that civil religion is an important dimension that needs to be recognized in sociology. While Bellah focuses specifically on the United States of America, he still gives a valuable perspective on civil religion and how it plays a part in religion as a whole. The connections of cultures and ideas through religion can be best explained by using Robert Bellah’s interpretation of civil religion.
Islam is the second biggest religion and fastest growing in the world today. Islam is a religion that Muslims follow and is a monotheistic faith regarded as revealed through Muhammad as the prophet of Allah. For Muslims, Muhammad is the last prophet and Abraham is the patriarch of the Qur’an, Bible and Torah. Islam is followed by over a billion people and Muslims make up approximately one quarter of the world’s population. Islam spread quickly during the 600’s trade, choice, and conquest.
Worship is an important part of the religion of Islam. Worship (Ibaadah) is a term that includes everything that Allah would be pleased with. It represents the utmost love for Allah through submission. Prayers,zakaat,fasting,hajj,being kind towards others, maintaining relations with kin, doing good and staying away from doing evil, being beneficent to neighbours,to the poor people or orphans,supplication,reciting the holy Quran and such others are types of worship.
A. PREAMBLE The terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 has sparked intense curiosity and interest in the world especially the West to learn and investigate the religion of Islam. The Muslim people are portrayed as violent and barbaric, and Islam as oppressive and antithesis to human rights values. Thus, escalation of public opinion about Islam has encouraged debates and forums, and also stirred demonstrations and movements which have compelled the Muslims to speak out their minds and interpret and recast their texts viz. Quran and Sunnah of prophet Mohammad and even question and challenge the prevailing culture and practices, and domineering structures.
These five pillars help maintain the religion and the people. The first pillar is Faith. Faith is usually defined as a strong belief towards someone or an anatomy. The Muslims need to have their faith in one God, Allah. Allah is the only God they believe in.
Connections Decline of American Religion and the Rise of Marijuana Use Name: Peter Sans Instructor: Institution: Hiram College Date of Submission: 10-22-15 Introduction Over the years, the United States of America has experienced a steady rise in a category of people who indicate “None” when asked about their religious affiliation.

Religion. It is a topic discussed throughout all of America as well as the rest of the world on a daily basis.

What is interesting is that these beliefs from so long ago are still traced all throughout the everyday lives of Americans. It is asked, how is this possible, when the world is so different today than it was fifty or one hundred years ago? The answer is literature. Written works have made it

Religion in Western civilization has undoubtedly played a pivotal role in shaping and developing Western society. Regardless of the form of religion, such as polytheism or monotheism, people in ancient societies believed in a God or Gods.
