“No part of the world…is more hopelessly and systematically and stubbornly misunderstood by us than that complex religion, culture and geography known as Islam”(Smith 221). Islam has been an established religion for over 1400 years, originating around the beginning of 600 AD (Robinson). Robinson also states that Islam’s religious definition means “voluntary submission to God” and is also commonly known to be defined as peace or submission. The Five Pillars of Islam, which are considered to be the foundations of Muslim life, are the confession of faith, prayer, alms, fasting, and pilgrimage (Robinson). By learning what the Five Pillars of Islam are one will be able to gain an understanding

Between 1000 C.E. and 1750 C.E., Islam had a great impact on Europe, which affected it politically, economically and culturally. Islam brought and took political power to/from the Church and king through the crusades, affected the economy through new innovations, and finally affected Europe’s society and culture through the Renaissance. Islam absolutely affected Europe in both positive and negative ways, but without a doubt changed the whole order of things for the continent.
The Crusades started in 1095, once pope Urban II demanded all the nations in Europe to unite for a single cause. Before this point, Europe had never really been

The Five Pillars of Islam are the basic spiritual practices required on all Muslims. They were taught by theologians after the death of the Prophet Muhammad as the actions was defined on what it meant to be a member of the Muslim community. The first pillar of Islam is the Shahadah to believe in and to profess the unity of God and the messenger-ship of Muhammad: “There is no god but God, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God,” to which Shi’ites add “and ’Ali is the Master of the believers.” The Second pillar of Islam is the Salaat which is the performance of a continual round or prayers.

Menjaga agama dalam konteks hubungan etnik adalah memastikan kedudukan Islam sebagai agama bagi Persekutuan hendaklah sentiasa terpelihara.

In the Middle East, Islam is not just a religion; it is a way of life. Islam’s influence spread in the Middle East music conceptions. For example, the Arabic scale is strongly melodic, based around various maqamat or modes. Also, Mann explains that “under the wide rule of Islam, vulgar lyrics and suggestive dancing by women became illegal. Much post-Islamic music is used in ceremonial dance and recreation.

It is the study of the history and methodology of the discipline of history.
The term historiography also denotes a body of historical work on a specialized topic. Scholars discuss historiography topically – such as the “historiography of Catholicism,” the “historiography of early Islam,” or the “historiography of China" – as well as specific approaches such as political history and social history. Beginning in the nineteenth century, at the ascent of academic history, a corpus of historiography literature developed.

The attitudes of Christianity and Islam differed towards merchants and trade from the religions’ origins until about 1500. Over the course of time, the Christianity view changed from a negative view to a positive view. The views of Islam changed inversely, where initially there was a positive view, but later changed to a negative view. Christianity changed through a religious aspect of trade whereas Islam changed due to social aspects. However, both religions changed their views of merchants through an economic standpoint.

Women in the Qur'an and Bible
Gender equality has been a controversial topic within religions, especially in Christianity and Islam. In fact, both Holy books in these religions (the Bible and Qur’an) have a lot to say. There is a common conception that holy books, especially the Qur’an and Bible depict women in a negative light. In fact, in the West, it is believed that Islam treats women a lot harsher than Christianity. For instance, each year in alliance with Sharia Law, thousands of Muslim husbands and sons kill their wives and daughters in accordance with “honor killings.” They are beheaded strangled, stoned and shot. If a Muslim woman suffers rape, Muslim men blame the woman

The impact that Muhammad’s death had on Islam is that his friend Abu Bakr was elected the first Caliph. But since it is believed that his spiritual light was passed on to Fatima his daughter and since she and her husband Ali did not take part in the funeral on the selection of the first caliph the Shi’ite faction claims that Ali is the legitimate heir.
Muhammad was never worshiped. He was only looked at as an inspiration of a way one should live his or her life.

The U.S. designation of the Palestinian rejectionists and Hizballah as enemies of the United States following the 11 September attacks owes much to the power of the stereotypes and simplifications on which the American war rhetoric was constructed. In this discourse, the entrenched notion that all those classified as “terrorists” somehow share a “terrorist code of ethics” and work toward some transcendent “terrorist objective” is grafted onto the equally ingrained Orientalist ideas of “the Arab mind” and “the nature of Islam.”10 The result is a range of interlocking neo

Ottoman authorities thus faced the challenge of defining national identity via the Turkish language, or via Islam. They chose to define ‘Turkishness’ as being Muslim, thus leaving out the minority Greek groups from this nationalistic conception (Zok 3-6). As a result what had once been the capital of Christendom, Constantinople, became the center of a homogeneously Muslim society.

To many individuals, the conception of polygamy, the practice of having more than one wife, conjures up the notion of “harem” women as sex slaves, servants, and baby making machines. Although most of our society view these types of arrangements as immoral and illegal, polygamy has been apart of the world’s culture and is continuously accepted in areas such as Africa, India and Canada. In our society, nothing is more
