Message of Islam


  • The prime message of Islam is the Unity of God, that the Creator of the world is One and He alone is worthy of worship.
  • Muhammad (peace and blessings on him) is His Messenger and great Human.
  • The follower of this belief is thus a Muslim –
    • A Muslim’s other beliefs are: God’s angels,
    • Previously revealed Books of God,
    • All the prophets, from Adam to Jesus (peace be on them both),
    • The Day of Judgment,
    • And indeed the Decree of God.
  • A Muslim has five main duties to perform;
    • bearing witness to the Unity of God and Muhammad (peace and blessings on him) as His Messenger,
    • Performing the prescribed prayer,
    • payment of Zakaat,
    • keeping the fasts of Ramadan,
    • Performing the pilgrimage to Mecca.
    At present there are 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide and they form the majority in more than 50 countries of the world. Today Islam is the fastest growing faith in the world - its beautiful message is reaching millions in the far corner of the earth.
