Islamic belief there is only one God, known as Allah. Muslims belief in the fundamental practices of function, creation, sustenance, guidance, and judgment. They believe in Devine Unity, the overall purpose is of humanity to serve Allah (God), only he is to be worshipped. They believe constructing a moral lifestyle. It is believed in the Quran that it is every human’s place to make the world a better place. The Quran places criticism on selfishness of the human, stating it is the selfishness of the human being that causes a person to loose site of their creator. Muslim believe in going beyond human selfishness to develop inner moral quality (to guard against danger). The purpose of each human is for the good of mankind, not oneself. Muslim believe prophets were sent to teach not only the individual, but also the nation as a whole. The prophets were set to teach morality and spirituality. Muhammad is believed to be the finale prophet with the Quran being the finale and most perfect of revelation of Allah (God). Quran is superior to all the early revelations of Allah. Muslims also believe in finale judgment.
