“Righteous is he who believes in Allah and the Last Day and the Angels and the Scriptures and the Prophets.”

— Qur'an 2:177

Beliefs are very important in Islam. To be considered a Muslim, one must believe and recite a statement of faith known as the Shahada: "There is no God but God, and Muhammad is his Prophet."

There is no other official creed to which one must adhere to be considered a Muslim. However, the "Six Articles of Faith" summarizes Islamic beliefs about God, angels, prophets, the Qu'ran, the afterlife, and predestination.

Islamic Beliefs About Prophets

Muhammad, the founder of Islam, is revered as "the Seal of the Prophets" - the last and greatest of the messengers of God. He is not divine in any way, for the strict monotheism that characterizes Islam (as well as Judaism) does not allow for such an interpretation. Other prophets are important in Islam as well, all of which are shared with the Jews or the Christians.

Islamic Beliefs About the Afterlife

Islam teaches the continued existence of the soul and a transformed physical existence after death. There will be a day of judgment and humanity will be divided between the eternal destinations of Paradise and Hell.

Mahdi

In Islam, the Mahdi is the foretold redeemer who will come to the Earth before Judgment Day and cleanse the world of injustice. He is not mentioned in the Quran, only the Hadith.

Salvation in Islam

For a Muslim, the object of life is to live in a way that is pleasing to Allah so that one may gain Paradise. It is believed that at puberty, an account of each person's deeds is opened, and this will be used at the Day of Judgment to determine his eternal fate.

Six Articles of Faith

There is no official creed to which one must adhere to be considered a Muslim. All that is required is to believe and recite the Shahada: "There is no God but God, and Muhammad is his Prophet." Beyond this core belief, however, Muslim doctrine is often summarized in "Six Articles of Faith." Many Muslims believe that one must adhere to the six articles to be considered a Muslim.
