Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Islam.

Of the three major monotheistic world religions, Islam is the youngest. The holy book of Islam, the Qur'an, is the word of Allah (God) handed down to Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam. Since Observers of Islam, Muslims, submit entirely to the will of Allah and praise him through a combination of observances, prayers, dietary restrictions and pilgrimages. Like in Judaism, Islamic religious status is closely tied to political status, with political leaders also holding high religious positions.
