Islam is one of the oldest religions in the world. The prophet Mohammed was born in 570 C.E and Islam grew out of his revelations which became the Quran. By clicking the image below, you can learn more about Islam from the Imam Atif out of Charlotte.

The Imam was at Pfeiffer University to teach the students the basics of Islam and what it means for him to be Muslim.


Differences between Christianity and Islam:

Christianity is a monotheistic religion which developed out of Second Temple Judaism in the 1st century CE. It is founded on the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and those who follow it are called Christians.[1]

Islam is a monotheistic religion that developed in the 7th century CE. Islam, which literally means “surrender” or “submission” (to God), was founded on the teachings of Muhammad as an expression of surrender to the will of Allah. Those who follow it are called Muslims.[2]
