- In this week’s readings on Islam, you will gain a deeper understanding of central beliefs and teachings in the Islamic tradition. You will learn about the Qur’an, the Prophet Muhammad, the Six Articles of Faith, the Five Pillars, and the main branches of Islam, Sunni, and Shi’a.
Please select and discuss a particular aspect of the religion that you found especially insightful, helpful, problematic or puzzling. This will give others a chance to provide feedback and other perspectives.
Make sure you write about the topic for the week using the course materials (the book or module material), or you will be asked to resubmit.
