Islam is monotheistic religion teaching that there is only one incomparable God – Allah and that Muhammad Peace be upon Him is the messenger of Allah. It is the world’s second-largest religion and the fastest-growing major religion in the world. Islam teaches that Allah is merciful, all-powerful and unique.
The Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) said, “The prayer offered in congregation is twenty five times more superior (in reward) to the prayer offered alone in one’s house or in a business center, because if one performs ablution and does it perfectly, and then proceeds to the mosque with the sole intention of praying, then for each step which he takes towards the mosque, Allah upgrades him a degree in reward and (forgives) crosses out one sin till he enters the mosque. When he enters the mosque he is considered in prayer as long as he is waiting for the prayer and the angels keep on asking for Allah’s forgiveness for him and they keep on saying: ‘O Allah! Be Merciful to him, O Allah! Forgive him, as long as he keeps on sitting at his praying place and does not pass wind. Sahih Al BuKhari: Volume 1, Book 8, Number 466.
