Islam, as described by Muhammad, was a straightforward faith, demanding of its adherents only that they acknowledge a set of basic beliefs: that there is only one God, and that God is Allah; that believers must submit completely to God; that God is revealed in the Qur'an; that Muhammad is Allah's final prophet, and that all believers are equal before God. Beyond that, believers were called upon to observe "sharia" (the law as defined by the Qur'an), and to conform to the five "pillars" of the faith: public witnessing of one's faith, daily prayer, charity, fasting during the holy month of Ramadan, and making pilgrimage to Mecca.Is Islam A Religion of the Sword?(620 clicks)
