Islam

When you have come to the end of your prayer, search out the grace of God and remember Allah even more. – Koran

Founded by the great religious leader Muhammad in the 7th century, Islam means “submission” or the total surrender of oneself to God. Islamic texts focus on this total devotion to God, the Divine Presence, and the practical methods, such as the daily calls to prayer, by which devotees (“believers”) could direct the mind to God and leave behind worldly concerns. Muhammad as prophet and the Messenger of God is the prime example of man reaching perfection through communication with God, or divine revelation, and the practice of virtues. Few school traditions approach the zealous love displayed in the teachings of Muhammad, or illustrate so directly the relationship between the human and the divine.
