The islam
Islam means: 'submission' (to Allah)
The most important book is the Qur'an (القرآن)

Five pillars of the Islam
geloofsbelijdenis (sjahada)
rituele gebeden (salat)
geven aan armen (zakat)

Slide 12 - Slide

Geloofsbelijdenis / Creed (Sjahada)

To become a Muslim you must pronounce the Shahada
If you do this you recognize that Allah is your god:
  • أَشْـهَدُ أَنْ لا إِلـهَ إِلاّ الله ، وَأَشْـهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمّـداً رَسـولُ الله
  • asjhadoe ʾan lā ʾilāha ʾillā-llāh, wa asjhadoe anna moeḥammadan rasōēloe-llāh
  • Ik getuig dat er geen god is naast Allah en dat Mohammad zijn boodschapper is

Slide 13 - Slide

Bidden / Prayer (Salat)
According to the salat, every Muslim should pray 5 times a day
In this Allah is thanked and honored
It often happens through fixed rules
For example, you should always pray towards Mecca (the Kaaba)

Slide 14 - Slide

Geven aan armen /  (Zakat)
A good Muslim takes care of people who are having a hard time
That's why they give money to people who have less
This also makes you pay for your sins
Fair enough: this should only be done if you can miss it
