That Muhammad was told by God what to write in the Qur’an, as where the Christian bible was what people think God would say. In Islam religious duties, or practices of worship are known as the Five Pillars . Shahadah; the first pillar is, the professing of faith. The belief of the bond between God and Muhammad, and that there is only one God and Muhammad was his messenger. The faithful are then required spread the word of Islam by the Qur’an, to those who are not Islamic, so that they may choose to convert to Islam if they wish to. Salah; the second pillar is, prayer. This is performed five times a day at specific times, and is normally in a mosque and facing Mecca. This is done so that the faithful can strengthen their belief in God, and to purify the heart and soul.
