The paper looks at the main teaching of Islam and the basic practices that an Islamic person needs to perform. The paper discusses Islam's relationship with the West as well as its internal conflict. The paper then outlines the religion/tradition of Hinduism, including the types of Hindus, the tenets of the Hindu faith and the religion's lack of structure.

From the Paper:

"The main teaching of Islam is the belief in one God. They do not share all of the views of Christianity, however. The teachings of Islam say that Jesus was only a messenger, and reject that God is a trinity (Oxtoby, 2007). They feel that these things are blasphemous, and denounce the Christian religion in these areas. The Islamic people also believe in angels, and they teach that the angel Gabriel is the one that brought their sacred book, the Qur'an, down to them here on earth (Oxtoby, 2007). The Qur'an is thought of by the Islamic community in the same way that the Bible is thought of by the Christian community."
