One of the questions people ask when they are wondering what is Islam is, “Where does it come from?” The religion originated in the two holy cities of Mecca and Medina. The countries that are considered sacred to Islam include Saudi Arabia, where it is headquartered. Another city is Jerusalem, which is considered to be the third sacred city in Islam. Abraham sacrificed his son there, so Jerusalem is an important place in Islamic beliefs.

The word Islam comes from the Arabic word “Islam”, which means to surrender. This message was revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad 1,400 years ago through the angel Gabriel. This message was preserved in the Holy Quran, which carries a Divine guarantee of safety against interpolation and is considered to be the most perfect and complete of all the scriptures. In fact, this holy book has a lot of features of the earlier scriptures.

Muslims worship God through prayer and recitation of the Quran. They believe in a day of judgment and a life after death. The word ‘jihad’ means struggle and is the central idea of Islam. Furthermore, Muslims believe that the prophet Muhammad, the last prophet, was born in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, and that he was sent by God to guide mankind.
