  • Discover the hallowed teachings of Mohammad, the rituals and practices of the faith, the origins and religious tenets of the Quran, and the Five Pillars of Islam.
  • Follow the spread of the world’s fastest-growing religion from Muhammad’s teachings in Mecca and Cordoba through the vast proliferation via the Ottoman Empire to the split between Sunni and Shi’ite denominations of Islam.
