Maths task:

Topic task:

Your task today is to read through the information that provides you with an introduction to the religion of Islam. Once you have read the information, you can then watch the video attached. We would then like you to set five questions for your friends or family to answer based on the religion of Islam.

If you are a follower of Islam yourself, we would like you to describe the experience of worship within a Mosque in your own words. This would be very helpful for those who have never visited a Mosque before.

 

 

Islam

What do Muslims believe?

Muslims believe that Islam was revealed over 1,400 years ago in Mekkah, Arabia through a man called Muhammad.

Muhammad is so respected that it is usual for Muslims to say 'peace be upon him' whenever they mention his name.

Muhammad is believed by Muslims to be the last prophet sent by God (Allah). They believe God sent prophets to mankind to teach them how to live according to His law.

Jesus (Isa), Moses (Musa) and Abraham (Ibrahim) are other respected prophets.

 

Five Pillars of Islam

The Five Pillars of Islam are an important part of Muslim life. They are five things that a Muslim must do so they can live a good and responsible life. They include:

  • The declaration of faith (Shahada)
  • Praying five times a day (Salat)
  • Giving money to charity (Zakah)
  • Fasting during the month of Ramadan (Sawm)
  • A pilgrimage to Makkah at least once in a lifetime (Hajj)

 

What is the holy book of Islam?

The Muslim holy book is called the Qur'an. Muslims believe this to be the word of Allah as dictated to Muhammad.

They also have the Sunnah, which Muslims believe to be the practical example of Prophet Muhammad.

 

Where do Muslims worship?

Muslims worship in a building called a mosque. On Friday at noon, the most important of the weekly services is held.

When Muslims pray, they must always face Makkah in Saudi Arabia. Many Muslim men will wear a small cap called a taqiyah when they pray.
