Islám
___________________
Pronunciation: ess-lahm
___________________
The religion founded by Muḥammad in Arabia in the seventh century AD. The core teachings of Islam which are accepted by all Muslims are the oneness of God, the prophethood of Muḥammad and belief in the Day of Judgment. Shí'ihs add to these belief in the rightful succession of the Imáms and justice. The secondary principles of Islam are prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, almsgiving, enjoining to good acts and admonishing of wrongdoing and holy war. The Bahá'í Faith has its historical roots in Islam in the same way that Christianity has its roots in Judaism yet is a completely independent religion, not a sect of the former faith.
[BD 122-123]
