More History

We were a few hours behind in class today, so we are planning on making those hours up probably tomorrow. The class we had today was continuing the history of Islam. Things we went over in class were the five pillars of Islam, the differences between the Gospels and the Quran, the varying beliefs, takes on the satanic verses, as well as traditions and practices. There are certain conflicts with the cancellation of certain Surahs, due to which one is correct, and which one came first. Typically the Surah that came last corrects or cancels out the ones that came before. Most people know about the five pillars of Islam, but we went into depth. This included learning about the cultural aspects and customs. We went into the detailed reasons behind traditions and beliefs. Overall this was more in depth and was very informative.
