Muslim beliefs

Muslims believe Allah is the one and only God. Obedience to the will of Allah, who created and rules everything is at the heart of all Muslims' faith.

Muslims believe in the Old and New Testament prophets sent by God. Muhammad is considered the final prophet.

Becoming a Muslim involves saying the Shahada: "I bear witness that there is no God but God, I bear witness that Muhammad is the prophet of God."

Muslims believe the Koran is the word of God and in the Day of Judgement.
