This one is for your second question. Say my religion have my religion because I follow the puller of islam: In Islam, there are six pillars of faith: Belief in Allah, His angels, His books to mankind, His Prophets and Messengers, the Day of Judgment, and Destiny.

  1. Belief in God (Allah) Islam teaches that there is one Unique God (Allah) who should be worshipped and obeyed.

  2. Belief in Mala-eka (Angels) Muslims believe that Allah created unseen creatures such as Angels. Muslims believe in their existence, their names, their tasks, and descriptions as explained in the Quran and in the Sunnah (Teachings of the Prophet).

  3. Belief in the Books of Allah Muslims believe that Allah from time to time revealed books to mankind through his Prophets. These books originated from the same divine source; they are all divine revelations. Muslims believe in the original text of these books when they were revealed. The five prominent divine books are: 1) Abraham's Scrolls; 2) Zabur (Psalms) revealed to Prophet David; 3) Tawrah (Torah) revealed to Prophet Moses; 4) Injil (Gospel) revealed to Prophet Jesus; 5) Quran revealed to Prophet Muhammad.

  4. Belief in the Prophets of Allah Muslims believe that Allah sent Prophets to all mankind as messengers for their guidance. Muslims believe in their existence, their names, and their messages, as Allah and His Prophet informed about them. Prophets are void of divinity because divinity is exclusive only to Allah (God) the Almighty. They are all righteous, truthful, and pious men chosen by Allah to be models to all mankind, both their words and deeds being in accordance with the divine commandments.

  5. Belief in Yawm al-Qiyama (Day of Judgement) Muslims believe that the life of this world and all that is in it will come to an end on one appointed day, when everything will be annihilated. This day will resurrect all the dead; Allah will judge with perfect justice each person individually according to his good or bad actions that he did during his life, and every victim will have his/ her rights. Allah will reward those who lead a righteous life and did good deeds by sending them to Paradise (Jannah). Allah forgives whom He pleases of those who disobeyed His Command, or punish them in the Hellfire (Jahannam).

  6. Qada wal-Qada (Destiny, Divine Decree) Muslims believe that since the whole universe is entirely under the direction and control of Allah, then everything that is or that happens in this universe, from the smallest to the greatest event is governed by Allah. Muslims put their trust in Allah only they are required, however, to make a sincere effort to strive and do their best, and not simply sit back and let things take their course in blind resignation. Such belief gives a person a tremendous degree of inner certainty, confidence and peace of heart, especially in the face of afflictions. Moreover, he lives with the assurance that whatever is to come to any individual, including death, cannot fail to come at its appointed time.

For your other question here the answer.

A typical Muslim’s day starts by waking up to pray the fajr (dawn) prayers. After that they can start their day or go to sleep for a while before staring their day.

We have to pray 5 different times in a day, it doesn’t affect us, it jut means we have a reserved time for each part of the day to remember God.

Out and about in our daily working live we have to try and avoid eating any thing that is not permitted i.e. meat which doesn’t come from a a halaal butcher.

The only nuisance here is checking ingredients in every little thing like a snack bar or a chocolate to see if it has any ingredients that we are not permitted to eat. A common ingredient is gelatine which is found in jams and other household foods.

Most foods labelled as suitable for vegetarians we normal consider safe to eat.

With regard to customs, every Muslim is obviously meant to behave themselves while out and about, greet fellow Muslims and generally be conscious of good manners.

Dress sense for women means that for those of that have any decency left, we should try and dress as covered as possible. Not every Muslim woman wears the long black coat that covers her whole body, i just wear the head scarf and dress decently with a normal top and jeans. I dont wear traditional Indian/pakistani clothes that you would find most people wearing in southall.

Normal everyday life doesn’t have to affect any muslim person, we just work our way around what is permissible and what isn't.

Islam when understood correctly is a sensible religion, it guides us through every aspect of our life, through everyday life to marriage and much more.

Most important thing for a Muslim to remember throughout their life is their religion, which mustn’t be taken in personal terms as extremists have done, but in the way in which Allah intended for it to be seen and followed; in its purest form Islam is a peaceful religion.

This is answer for the first question of your.

Muharram (1 Muharram) The Islamic New Year The month of Muharram marks the beginning of the Islamic liturgical year. The Islamic year begins on the first day of Muharram, and is counted from the year of the Hegira (anno Hegirae) the year in which Muhammad emigrated from Mecca to Medina (A.D. July 16, 622).

Mawlid al-Nabi (12 Rabi 1) Prophet Muhammad's Birthday This holiday celebrates the birthday of Muhammad, the founder of Islam. It is fixed as the 12th day of the month of Rabi I in the Islamic calendar. Mawlid means birthday of a holy figure and al-Nabi means prophet.

Eid al-Fitr (1 Shawwal) The Celebration concluding Ramadan Ramadan, the month of fasting, ends with the festival of Eid al-Fitr. Literally the "Festival of Breaking the Fast," Eid al-Fitr is one of the two most important Islamic celebrations (Eid al-Adha is the other). At Eid al-Fitr people dress in their finest clothes, adorn their homes with lights and decorations, give treats to children, and enjoy visits with friends and family.

A sense of generosity and gratitude colors these festivities. Although charity and good deeds are always important in Islam, they have special significance at the end of Ramadan. As the month draws to a close, Muslims are obligated to share their blessings by feeding the poor and making contributions to mosques. Eid al-Adha (10 Dhu'l-Hijjah) The celebration concluding the Hajj Eid al-Adha, or the Feast of Sacrifice, commemorates the prophet Abraham's willingness to obey Allah by sacrificing his son Ishmael. According to the Qu'ran, just before Abraham sacrificed his son, Allah replaced Ishmael with a ram, thus sparing his life.

One of the two most important Islamic festivals, Eid al-Adha begins on the 10 day of Dhu'l-Hijja, the last month of the Islamic calendar. Lasting for three days, it occurs at the conclusion of the annual Hajj, or pilgrimage to Mecca. Muslims all over the world celebrate, not simply those undertaking the hajj, which for most Muslims is a once-a-lifetime occurrence.

The festival is celebrated by sacrificing a lamb or other animal and distributing the meat to relatives, friends, and the poor. The sacrifice symbolizes obedience to Allah and its distribution to others is an expression of generosity, one of the five pillars

What muslim do not belive in? We do not belive that Jesus is son of god or he god himself -tuba- called the Injeel, some parts of which may be still available in the teachings of God to Jesus in the New Testament. But this does not mean that Muslims believe in the Bible we have today because it is not the original scriptures that were revealed by God. They underwent alterations, additions, and omissions. This was also said by the Committee charged with revising The Holy Bible (Revised Standard Version). This Committee consisted of thirty-two scholars who served as members of the Committee. They secured the review and counsel of an Advisory Board of fifty representatives of the co-operating denominations. The Committee said in the Preface to The Holy Bible (Revised Standard Version), p. iv, “Sometimes it is evident that the text has suffered in transmission, but none of the versions provides a satisfactory restoration. Here we can only follow the best judgment of competent scholars as to the most probable reconstruction of the original text.” The Committee also said in the Preface, p. vii, “Notes are added which indicate significant variations, additions, or omissions in the ancient authorities (Mt 9.34; Mk 3.16
