The following are the six major Faiths in Islam:
1). Belief in the oneness of God: Muslims claim that Allah is all things, and Allah is all-and all-. The features of human life remain unchanged. God doesn’t have children, no race, no gender, nothing.
2). Belief in the Angles of God: Muslims believe in the angels that represent God and obey Heaven’s orders in the world, invisible beings. The angel Gabriel had given the prophets the divine message.
3). Belief in the Books of God: Muslims claim that God has identified a variety of God’s messengers with holy books or scriptures. Which include the Qur’an (Muhammad), the Torah (Moses) and the Bible (Jesus), the Psalms (David) and the Scriptures (Abraham). (Abraham). Muslims believe all these previous scriptures were interpreted in their original form divinely, but only the Quran survives as presented first to the prophet Muhammad.
4). Belief in the Prophets or Messengers of God: Muslims believe that throughout history, beginning with the first man, Adam, who is considered the first prophet, God’s guidance has been revealed to humans by specially appointed messengers, or prophets. Twenty-five of these Prophets, including Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, are mentioned by name in the Quran. Muslims believe Muhammad is the last prophet to have been given to all of humanity by the messenger of Islam.
5). Belief in the Day of Judgment: Muslims believe that humans will be judged on the Day of Judgment for their acts in this life; those who followed the guidance of God will be rewarded with paradise; those who refused the guidance of God will be punished with hell.
6). Believe in the Devine Decree: Muslims believe that humans will be judged on the Day of Judgment for their acts in this life; those who followed the guidance of God will be rewarded with paradise; those who refused the guidance of God will be punished with hell.

JIHAD IN ISLAM
Jihad’s literal meaning is sacrifice or commitment, and that means a lot more than holy war. Muslims use the term Jihad to describe three different styles of struggle:
- The inner struggle of a believer to carry out the Islamic faith as much as possible.
- The struggle to create a healthy Islamic society.
- Holy War: The battle to protect Islam, if possible with force.
Many modern writers claim that Jihad’s main meaning is the inner spiritual struggle, and many Muslims accept this.
However, in Islamic writings, there are so many references to Jihad as a military battle that it is false to say that viewing Jihad as a holy war is incorrect.
JIHAD AND PROPHET
The inner Jihad is said to be the one the Prophet (PBUH) has called the greater Jihad.
Yet some scholars consider the quote in which the Prophet says this as coming from an unreliable source. They find the use of Jihad to mean holy war to be the most important.
