1ISLAMMy View of a World Religion-IslamKaryn GodenaSaint Leo UniversityREL-223-OL01
2ISLAMI grew up being taught about Christianity in my home and church, but in this paper, I willdiscuss a religion that is outside of my own, Islam. This paper does not include any researched information about Islam, just simply my view of what the religion of Islam is to see how much I know about the religion at the beginning of this course. A “snapshot” you could say! The things that I do know about Islam comes from reading news articles, politics, and social media networks. To begin, I know that Islam is practiced by Muslims in areas such as Saudi Arabia, wherethe language is Arabic. I would like to think that they are quite similar to Christianity. The Muslims pray to their one and only god who they call, Allah. The Muslims also have a message from God just like the Christians Holy Bible, that they call the Quran. The messenger in Christianity was Moses, but in Islamic faith, Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.
