There are around one and a half billion Muslims across the world. It is one the most prevalent religions in the world and it comes under Abrahamic traditions along with Christianity and Judaism.
There are total five main pillars of practice in Islam. Shahadat is a practice in which in which a Muslim accepts the existence of one God and he accepts that Hazrat Muhamad (peace be upon him) is the last messenger of Allah. Muslims pray to Allah five times a day and those time zones are based on the timings of sun rising and setting. In the Holy month of Ramadhan, Muslims fast in the day time for about thirty days. Zakat is given to the poor and needy people each year which means that if a person is financially strong enough he pays 2.5% of his money to the needy. Also, if a person is financially and physically capable of performing Hajj, he has to travel to Makkah at least once in his lifetime and for this purpose certain packages like Ramadan Umrah 2017 from London have been made.
Islam has total six articles of faith. These are the basic and strong faiths that one must possess in order to declare himself a true Muslims. These believes include the faith in God, belief in all Prophets of Allah, faith in the books revealed to the Prophets, belief in Angels, belief in the day of judgment and life hereafter and faith in the holy declaration or purpose of life. Islam is a comprehensive and wide ranged religion which puts light on all the phases of life including moral, intellectual, political, social and spiritual phases.

In order to become a Muslim by changing your religion, one must simply has to accept the existence of one God and he should have a strong faith in the last messenger Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). This concept of faith is called Shahadat. The word Allah is an Arabic world which means God. Muslims have to use the name of Allah for God, by showing their faith in Almighty. Spanish people call their God Dios and French people call their God as Dieu. In Islam, Allah has total 99 names which are based on the attributes of Almighty. These names are mentioned in the Holy Quran.
Muslims follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), yet they do have faith in all other Prophets from Hazrat Adam to Hazrat Issa (may Allah be pleased with them). You can never be a true Muslim unless you don’t have faith in all Prophets. The holy Quran is the ultimate book of guidance for all Muslims and it was revealed by Allah Almighty for his believers. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is not the author of Quran, in fact Allah is the author of that holy book which was given a physical form by the companions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
