    This led to the creation of the sovereign states of the Dominion of Pakistan that later split into the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the People's Republic of Bangladesh and the Union of India later Republic of India. Muslims believe that Islam is a total and a complete way of life. Islam was introduced to Indonesia in the 14th century, hardly having time to consolidate itself there politically before the region came under Dutch hegemony. Ahmadiyyas are Muslims who follow Mirza Ghulam Ahmed whom they consider to be the mahdi. This constitutes a completion rate of 66 percent.

    All of them were companions of Muhammad and lived in Medina. Smaller prayer rugs may be stacked on a nearby shelf for individual use. If Islam is really peaceful and tolerant, and jihad terror has nothing to do with religion, have you ever wondered how it is possible for so many Muslims worldwide to so spectacularly misunderstand their religion in exactly the same way? All have received teachings revealed directly from God, and perhaps others before them have received revealed Books as well, even though their books may have been lost or fragmented. Only 15 percent of mosques currently face financial difficulty. However, Pakistan celebrates its day of creation on 14 August.

    For example, the Jewish community in Medina was allowed to have its own Halakhic courts[19] and the Ottoman millet system allowed its various dhimmi communities to rule themselves under separate legal courts. Because most of these associations are small, and because there are relatively few of them among all mosques, the results of the survey are not likely to be highly skewed by these omissions. Mihrabs vary in size and color, but they are usually shaped like a doorway and decorated with mosaic tiles and calligraphy to make space stand out. Thus, there is not only an Islamic religious institution but also an Islamic lawstate, and other institutions governing society. Alternatively, there may be a fountain-like structure along a wall or in a courtyard.

Some mosques may have secondary domes, as well. However, there are a number of features that nearly all mosques have in common. Prophet Muhammad pbuh and his small group of followers endured persecution, boycott, exile, and warfare before they finally achieved acceptance and success.

Their faith provided the Muslims with complete guidance and a foundational springboard as they proceeded to attain unparalleled achievements in human rights, enfranchisement of women, military expeditions, scholarship, inventions, institutions, law and arts, among others. All segments of Muslim society, however, are bound by a common faith and a sense of belonging to a single community.

The minbar is usually made of carved wood, stone, or brick. God transformed him from an ordinary man to the last of the Prophets. There are several ambiguous passages in the Koran, but certainly Islam Two, the sharia, condemns homosexuality.

A brief introduction to Islam

And when your soul be wary, change form one garden to garden, and from one prospect to prospect. Shi'a Muslims believe that God chose Ali as the leader after Muhammad.

As you are about to see, the institutionalized discrimination and harassment of non-Muslims dhimmis living under Islamic law has always existed in Islamic theology and never been rejected by any orthodox school or sect of Islam. In mosques, the prayer area is often covered with large prayer carpets.

But because we have tended to see Islam as the enemy of the West, as an alien culture, society, and system of belief, we have tended to ignore or erase its great relevance to our own history.
