Islam is a monotheistic religion based on the revelations received the Prophet Muhammad in the 7th century, which were later recorded in the Qur'an. Today, Islam is the second largest religion in the world. The word "Islam" means "submission," reflecting the religion's central tenet of submitting to the will of God. Islamic practices are defined by the Five Pillars of Islam: faith, prayer, fasting, pilgrimage and alms.

The emergence of Islam in Indian sub-continent is concurrent with the Turko-Muslim invasion of medevial India (which includes large parts of present day Pakistan and the Republic of India) , where these rulers took over the administration of large parts of India. Since its introduction into India, Islam has made religious, artistic, philosophical, cultural, social and political contributions to Indian history, heritage and life.Islam spread from the West throughout South Asia, from the early eighth century, to become the largest minority religion in India.

Muslim Beliefs & Practices

The religious rituals of Islam are relatively few in number, but great in importance. The Five Pillars of Islam are five practices regarded by all sects as essential to the Muslim faith and these are:

Shahadah: sincerely reciting the Muslim profession of faith, Salat: performing ritual prayers in the proper way five times each day, Zakat: paying an alms (or charity) tax to benefit the poor and the needy, Sawm: fasting during the month of Ramadan and Hajj: pilgrimage to Mecca

Mosques

Mosques are Muslim places of worship and prayer. The word "mosque" comes from the Arabic masjid, which is related to the word for "prostration." Muslims are required to pray five times a day, preferrably in a mosque: morning, midday, afternoon, sunset, and evening. Some of the notable Mosques are Jama Masjid Delhi, Begumpuri Masjid Delhi, Taj Mahal Ujjain Jama Masjid , Jama Masjid Bhopal, Moti Masjid Bhopal...

Quran

Quran is the central religious text of Islam. Muslims believe the Quran to be the book of divine guidance and direction for mankind, the text in its original Arabic, to be the literal word of God revealed to Muhammad over a period of twenty-three years and view the Qur'an as God's final revelation to humanity. In Arabic, the word qur'an means "reading" or "recitation".

Holy Cities of Islam
