THE RELIGION

Islam is an Abrahamic, monotheistic, universal religion teaching that there is only one God (Arabic: Allah), and that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.  It is the world’s second-largest religion with over 1.8 billion followers or 24 percent of the world’s population, most commonly known as Muslims.

The Kaaba, a shrine located near the center of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, is the most sacred place in the Muslim world.  It is also called the “House of Allah.”
