How is the religion of Islam like Christianity and Judaism?

 

Islam is a religion founded by Muhammad or Mohammed, who was an Arab and lived from AD 570 to AD 632. It is therefore also known as Mohammedanism. Muhammad believed that he was a prophet, and that Abraham, Moses and Jesus Christ had been prophets before him. The religion he founded therefore has several similar ideas to Christianity and Judaism. The followers of Islam, who are called Muslims or Moslems believe in one great all- powerful god, who they call Allah. They set aside one day of the week for rest and prayer, in the same way as Jews set aside the Sabbath (Friday evening to Saturday evening) and Christians, Sunday. Muslims set aside Friday and attend the mosque on that day. Islam has a holy book, called the Koran, which contains the teachings of Muhammad. It says that people should follow a good life so that they may go to heaven after death, as does the Holy Bible.

Islam began in Arab land and is still followed there, but is has also spread to Turkey, parts of Africa, Pakistan and Indonesia. About 500 million people are Muslims.
