Islam is the last religion branching off of Judaism. Every Muslim must believe in Allah (God) and the Prophet Muhammad. You must also follow the Five Pillars:
The first pillar- You must believe in Allah and Muhammad
The second pillar- Pray five times a day
The third pillar- Must fast (Ramadan)
The fourth pillar- Give to the poor (Charity and kindness should be done willingly and not because of fear of punishment.)
The last pillar- Pilgrimage (Pilgrimage is where you circle the Ka’Ba, the house of Allah.)
