Hi, my friends and I will talk about the different religious groups in South West Asia!
Behind me is the country of Jerusalem, which is the capital of the three religion that will be explained.
I am of Islamic faith. My religion starts with Abraham, we are monotheistic, which means that I only believe in one god. We are called Muslims and worship Allah along with the sacred text named Qur'an . We also have five pillars that every Muslim follows and they are ; "Zakat": which is the giving of 2.5% of what someone earns, "Sawm": which is where people fast in the morning to the evening, "Hajj": it's were you must go to Mecca at least once, "Salah": were you must pray 5 times a day, "Shahada": You must believe that Allah is the one and only god.
I am of christian faith. My religion starts with Abraham and then with the birth of Jesus Christ, shortly after Jesus Christ was crucified the world was relinquished of all sins otherwise known as atonement.
Although there are different views of whether or not Jesus Christ is a prophet or a Messiah.
The sacred text for my religion is the Bible and one of the signs of Christianity is the cross. While the birth place of Jesus Christ is Jerusalem.
