Islam is the second most common religion in the world. It is a monotheistic religion like Christianity. Muslim belief is expressed in their profession of faith: “There is no god but God, and Muhammad is the Prophet of God.” Muslims believe that after the final judgment there will be an after life, either in heaven or in hell.
