    • kutub
      • Belief in holy books
        • The holy books of Islam should be respected. This is especially true of the Qur’an, which is the unchanged word of Allah, revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.
    • nubuwwah
      • Belief in the prophets
        • Allah is believed to have communicated with the prophets, called nubuwwah, through the angels. Muslims believe the prophets should be respected but never worshipped.
    • Al-Qadr
      • Belief in predestination
        • This means that everything in the universe follows Allah’s masterplan – Muslims believe that Allah has decided everything that happens.
    • malaikah
      • Belief in angels
        • Muslims believe that God’s greatness means he cannot communicate directly with humans. Instead, God passed messages, called risalah, to his prophets via the angels, called malaikah, who were his first creation and who always obey him.
    • Akhirah
      • Belief in the Day of Judgement and the afterlife
        • Muslims believe that life on Earth is a test and that, after they die, they will be judged by God and sent to either Paradise or Hell.
