With all that is going on today, can you help me gain a basic understanding of Islam? How does it differ from biblical Christianity?
Islam is actually a word that means “surrender” or “submission.” Islam claims to be fully surrendered to the will of Allah. And the will of Allah,Muslims believe, was revealed through his prophet Mohammed. The revelation is written down in the Muslim holy book, the Koran.
There are six basic articles of faith in Islam and five duties. A simple Islamic doctrinal statement would look something like this:
1. Muslims believe that Allah alone is the one true deity.
He has neither mother nor father; similarly, he has no sons or daughters. He is not a Trinity; he is not the God of the Old Testament; and he is not the God of Christianity. Allah, according to Islam, is the god of all humanity.
2. Muslims believe in all the “Messengers and Prophets of Allah.”
