Most Westerners have been--and remain--ignorant of the basic tenets of Islam, despite the fact that it is the second-largest religion in the world and despite the high profile of Islamic extremism in the news. The articles here delve into the general core beliefs of Islam, as set forth in the Holy Qur'an, the Sunnah (the life of Muhammad, seen as a model for believers to follow), and the Hadiths (the sayings of the Prophet). This section also zooms in on some specific aspects of Islam, such as its concept of perfection, the divisions in the faith, and its notion of death and the afterlife.
