LearningRMPS.com is a completely free to use site. And is used by thousands of people each month. It was originally set up to help my own students without the need for a password or log in. It has grown and as such the domain itself costs over £100 a year to keep the site running. This comes from my own money. I have no sponsorship or income from ads.

Islam is the fastest growing religion today. One in five people in the world are Muslim. That’s over a billion people!

This post is all about an Introduction to Islam. I recommend starting with this video!

Muslims are found throughout the world. Contrary to common belief, most Muslims are not Arab. In fact, only 20% are from Arab countries. The largest communities are in Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India.

There are many misconceptions about Islam and stereotypes surrounding the religion. It is as important as ever to study Islam in the modern day especially with recent current affairs.

The 7 Core Beliefs

There are seven core beliefs that all Muslims believe in. These are:

  1. Belief in Allah as the one and only God
  2. Belief in angels
  3. Belief in the Revealed Book of God
  4. Belief in Allah’s prophets
  5. Belief in the Day of Judgement
  6. Belief in Allah having a record of our actions
  7. Belief in an afterlife

There will be a series of posts all about Islam as the class works through their National Coursework.
