What were the Islamic beliefs?

Muslims were monotheists (believed in ONLY one God, which was Allah (Muslims call their god by this name)), and they believed in a religious text known as the Quran (further explained later on). They also believed in the 5 pillars of Islam, which were Shahada (belief), Salah (worship), Sawm (fasting), Zakat (almsgiving (giving money and/or food to the poor)), and Hajj (pilgrimage (a long journey to a sacred placed as an act of being devoted to a religion, like Islam in this case)).


What texts were important to Islam?

1. The Quran: Not only was it the center of attention in terms of islamic texts, it was the holy book (or bible) of the Muslims (shown in the background).

2. The Hadith: a collection of traditions as a source of guidance for Muslims.

This is the Hadith.
