Scott Welch Dr. Wettemann Persons and Communities October 5, 2006 The Koran “The righteous man is he who believes in God and the Last Day, in the angels and the Book and the prophets; who, though he loves it dearly, gives away his wealth to kinsfolk, to orphans, to the destitute, to the traveler in need and to beggars, and for the redemption of captives; who attends to his prayers and renders the alms levy; who is true to his promises and steadfast in trial and adversity and in times of war.” (The Cow, Pg. 27) This passage from the Koran seems to address the true nature of Islam; it depicts a religion that is full of love, compassion, and integrity. The Koran, coupled with Shariah, are the tools used to instruct Muslims the proper ways to travel through life. They describe the basics for a community, the roles of both men and women, and the relationship shared between Allah and the Islamic faith. As a guideline for the foundations of a community, the Koran and Shariah, spend a great deal of time formulizing laws for the Muslim person with emphases on interaction with outsiders, religious practices and behaviors.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
