a copy of the Qur'an which is treated with great respect and placed on a special wooden stand to be read. The belief that life on Earth is just a test and that physical death is not the end of man’s existence. It can be seen as a door to a higher way of life, where you can become closer to Allah. After death, the Qur’an states that Muslims will stand before God, on the Day of Judgement, and be judged for their actions in the previous life. This will then determine whether they are sent to Paradise or Hell. Since the divine knowledge was mediated through the infallible teachings of an imam, the Shiʿites believed (in contrast to the Sunnites) that all knowledge derived from fallible, human sources was useless. It was not what the community thought, but what the imam proclaimed that counted. This narrowed the scope for toleration of divergent views.Tawallah (also spelt Tawalla) refers to showing love. This includes love both for God and for those who follow him. O mankind, fear your Lord and fear a Day when no father will avail his son, nor will a son avail his father at all. Indeed, the promise of Allah is truth, so let not the worldly life delude you and be not deceived about Allah by the Deceiver. [Quran, 31:33]
The colour green is mentioned many times in the Qur’an as the colour of clothing in paradise, “those who inhabit paradise will wear fine silk garments of green” (18:31) . Although Muslim scholars maintain that parts of the holy text should be interpreted metaphorically (just like other Abrahamic religions), for some, this line has been interpreted literally. They refer to the afterlife as ' Akhirah' and believe that when we die, we remain in our graves until the end of the world. This is known as Yawm al-din, the Day of Judgement. The date on which the world will end is known only to Allah. This is not to suggest that there were not, in the long history of Islam, periods of persecution over differences in belief and practice; there have been people in every religion who have regarded themselves as arbiters and enforcers of truth. But such occasions have been far fewer than in most other major beliefs. Like God in the bible, Qur'an says how Allah Created the earth, the heavens and everything in between in just six days.Adam, in Islam, was the very first prophet and human being.Muslims believe that Allah created Adam from clay. He was given the ability to think logically and was told to be the representative of God, the Khalifah.

The conflicts over leadership, belief, and practice enabled the Sunnites to develop what they believed to be correct religious positions, based on the Koran and the sayings (Hadith) of the Prophet and in reaction to what they regarded as sectarian points of view. Sunnites regard their sect as orthodox Islam, representing the consensus of the Islamic community against wayward positions. But Islam was never incorporated into either Judaism or Christianity. It remained a separate religion and soon emerged as a new empire and a new civilization. The revelations that Muhammad received were collected into the Koran (or Qurʾan), the holy book of Islam that directed Muhammad’s followers in what to believe and how to live. Women of the Islamic faith are required to follow the full hijab principle when in front of any man that in theory, they could potentially marry. This means that Muslim women do not have to completely observe the hijab principle when in the presence of their male family members, so their father, brothers, grandfathers, uncles, or children. It is also not seen as completely necessary for Muslim women to wear something that shows their observation of the hijab in front of other Muslim women. The way that Muslim women observe the hijab principle varies a lot, which we will explore below. The Muslim holy book is called The Qur'an. Muslims believe that every word was given to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) by Allah. Christians, Muslims and Jewish people, in fact, share many of the stories and traditions that are told in the Old Testament of the Bible.
