Transcript of Interactive Oral Assessment: Islamic Faith

-Middle East Sarah Clemens, Nathaniel Brown, Jeremy Worthy, & Natalie Black Islamic Faith What is your first thought when you hear "Muslim" -Terrorist
-Al Qaeda
-Evil Egypt has 72.8 million Muslims Mecca •Worldwide there are 1.2 billion Muslims •2nd largest religion in the world •The #1 fastest growing religion ? NOT TRUE الإسلام اسلام Islam means "surrender" and is related to the arabic word for peace: = Islam Peace Did you know they were Muslim? Lupe Fiasco Dave Chappelle T-Pain Muhammed Ali Islam is not only a noun, but a verb meaning to surrender, submit, and obey. This is all done in peace and sincerity as you "surrender, submit, and obey" to God, or , as it is pronounced in Arabic. Allah •The Islamic holy book is the Koran •Outlines history of Islam and the rules for Muslims Koran •The Koran is God's exact words, sent to the prophet Muhammad over a 22-year period in Mecca Shahadah is basically the Islamic Creed; all Muslims
must declare their belief that Allah is the one and only God and their acceptance for Muhammad as God's final prophet. Salah is when Muslims offer their prayers to God. Salah is done 5 times a day according to the movement of the Sun •Zakah is an act of charity done by Muslims. It helps promote helping others and diminish selfishness. "Zakah is a great system that can help the people in need." Sawm, or fasting, lasts for 30 days and commemorates the revelation of the Qur'an to humanity during Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic year. Hajj is the pilgrimage that Muslims make
to the Mecca, the spiritual capital for Muslims. Hajj is the religious high point of a Muslim's life and an event that every Muslim dreams of undertaking. It is required for all physically and financially able Muslims to undertake the Hajj at least once in their lifetime. " Did you know... the Koran is the only book in the world
that you could burn every single copy of
and it could be rewritten EXACTLY the same,
down to every last word and punctuation mark? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The Koran has a lot of similarities to the Bible: •Muslims recognize and respect all the same prophets in the Bible

•The origin of Islam started with Abraham, Sarah, Hagar, Ishmael, and Isaac—just as Christianity

•Believe in Moses and all of his miracles

•Muslims have different interpretations of Jesus Christ: The main differences •While there are many similarites between Christianity and Islam, there are also many differences. The main of which is their different texts, one written by God himself (Koran) and the other compiled by prophets (Bible).

•The day of worship is Friday in Islam, instead of Sunday in Christianity.

•Also, while they recognize Jesus and have equal respect for him, Islam follows the last, most current prophet of God: Muhammad Women in Islam = "I shall not lose sight of the labor of any of you who labors in My way, be it man or woman; each of you is equal to the other" (3:195) Before the advent of Islam, women had no position in society. They were at the mercy of men and were treated as poorly as cattle. It was Islam that, for the first time, vindicated the rights of woman and gave them a high, respectful status in society. Islam is unique in this respect to endow a woman with equal rights and to put her on the same level with man. The Holy Quran emphasises that God in His perfect wisdom created all species equal; as is said: Hijab The Koran does state that women should cover their heads and bodies to protect themselves form the judgement of men. The traditions of Hijab differ from each society and culture; some decide to keep their face open, some decide to cover everything up, some dont wear Hijab at all. In fact, a Hijab in general is a choice. Even though the
Koran says so, one does not have to wear Hijab. Many Muslim women do not. Women with Hijab are traditionally viewed in society as more respectable and sophisticated. There are still major reforms that need to be made in some Muslim countries; perhaps a way to reform is with proper education, the teaching of open-mindedness, and the replacement of religious ignorance with the true knowledge of the Koran. People could embrace and accept the rights and equality the Koran grants to both genders. Perhaps then, life would be equal and righteous for all. Men, too, dress as modestly as they choose is truly a religion of peace, equality, justice, acceptance, love, and forgiveness. The teachings of the Koran are universal and millions of Muslims rejoice in this unique and ever-growing religion. Islam Firdaus' falls into the category of Muslim women who suffer. As Maha said, it is usually those who lack education and live amongst others who lack education as well that end up being abused and oppressed. It is not Islam that causes Firdaus' suffering, but the strict traditions and bigoted people of the lower class society she lives in. **Because Firdaus did not use her body to get further, she became more than just an object to the men in the company. She was able to become successful and garnered respect from her male coworkers along the way. There is no denying that some Muslim women do suffer and have not been granted the freedoms, choices and opportunities that are the rights given to all human beings, rights that are not only self-evident but clearly written in the Holy Koran. What is missing for Muslim women is knowledge, which comes from much needed education, and also the courage to ask questions and have their voices heard. http://www.thenational.ae/thenationalconversation/comment/improve-opinion-of-muslim-women-one-voice-at-a-time Many women feel they are liberated by Hijab and see it as their right, as a part of their identity Islam gives women the power to decide marriage. There are no arranged marriages, and it is ultimately up to the woman to decide who she marries. She is also given a guardian for the marriage process, someone to watch over and make sure she is not taken advantage of. Marriage Rights **Firdaus married even though she did not want to. If Islam gives the woman the right to decide, why couldn't she choose according to her will? This is because Firdaus faced the social pressures of an abusive family and the threat of being kicked out to the streets. Her unhealthy marriage was a result of her society, not her religion. Maha Abdallah on Islam Did you know... For every male convert to Islam, there are 1 4 female converts -believe he is the messiah
-one of his disciples was cruxified in his place
-Jesus is one of God's prophets "The social scene here is so simple, relaxed and uncomplicated. No one seems more rich, intelligent, or prettier than anyone else. Nor does one ever feel insecure or inferior over here; there are no social barriers that segregate people. The people here are unbelievably friendly; it's obvious that this is the city of Allah" This is because over 20 million Muslims have memorized the entire Koran and can recite it by heart ? More common extreme
