History 7, The Basic Beliefs of Islam

In Islam we believe in many things. In this essay I’m going to list the basic beliefs of Islam.

In Islam we believe that there is only one God, that He has no parents or children, and that He is our creator, and that he has 99 names all describing his magnificence. We also believe in angels, another one of God’s creations who are always busy carrying out His commands. We believe in the prophets, people God has sent to us to remind us of Him and renew our loyalty to Him. We believe that whatever comes to you, good or bad, is from God and that it’s all part of His plan; we also believe in life after death.

We believe in God’s books, the Scrolls given to Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), the Psalms given to Prophet Dawud (David), the Torah given to Prophet Musa (Moses), the Gospel (better known as the Bible now days) given to Prophet Isa (Jesus), and the Qur’an given to Prophet Muhammad.

But the Muslims only follow the Qur’an since the Scrolls were lost by the people, and the books of Prophets Abraham, David, and Jesus were changed by the people. The Qur’an is the only book of God that remains known and untainted.

Islam is all about faith. But it’s not just believing, it’s also action; showing your faith to God. All of that was just the faith part of Islam. Islam consists of faith and action; this is the action part of Islam, what we do.

We follow the Five Pillars of Islam, which is the structure of Islam. The five pillars of Islam are Shahada ( declaring faith), Salat (prayer), Zakat (money for the poor and needy), Sawm (fasting), and Hajj (pilgrimage).

These are the beliefs of Islam.  We believe in one God and following the Books of God, what God wants us to do or wants us to be. I hope this has given you a good idea of the beliefs of Islam. Thanks for reading!
