This paper discusses the main beliefs of Islam, the names and traits of God, the character of God and the relationship between man and God in Islam. The paper explains how it is required that man be totally submissive to Allah; he should obey the commands laid out in the Holy Koran at all costs because the only way to eternal salvation is to please God irrespective of the kind of commands that he has to follow.

From the Paper:

"Islam is not only a private or individual religion. Many of its laws can be carried out only in an Islamic society where the civil law follows Islamic principles. For example Muslim law requires that property be inherited according to certain rules with sons typically receiving twice as much as daughters. The Zakat or Charity Tax needs to be collected and distributed by the government. Muslim law regarding marriage and divorce has many provisions that can only operate if supported by the civil law; for example, the woman can not sign the marriage contract, but her male legal guardian must sign it for her. This Islamic law in its totality is called the Shari'ah, a term meaning "the right truth" (Esposito, 1991). Traditionalist Muslims can not be content to live in a secular society in the Western sense, which provides freedom of religion to all. Islam requires a society in which the government is Islamic, and Islam is the official religion."
