This section helps exhibition visitors understand Islamic beliefs on a deeper level.
Although it is a little-known fact amongst non-Muslims, Islam teaches respect for all of Allah's (God's) Prophets and Messengers. As such, Muslims are required by their faith to revere and love men who are usually associated in the West with Christianity and Judaism.
The presenterwill explain the common roots, which Islam shares with other faiths and will refer to some of the following in this section:
Like Christians and Jews, Muslims also believe in the story of the Flood of Noah. The Qur'an relates this story to Muslims and as a result, Noah is regarded as one of the Messengers of God
Referred to in the Islamic tradition as the "Father of the Prophets" and the "friend of God", Abraham - or "Ibrahim" in Islam - is looked upon with tremendous respect. To this day, many Muslims visit Hebron - in Palestine - where Abraham is believed to have been buried.
Known by his Aramaic name "Musa", Moses is considered to be one of the great Prophets of God. Moses led his people to freedom from the tyranny of the Egyptian Pharaoh, Rameses II.
Known in the Holy Qur'an as "Isa Bin Maryam" - Jesus, son of Mary - this Prophet is not only revered and loved by Christians but by Muslims also. The holy book of Islam, The Holy Qur'an mentions his name no less than twenty-five times, teaches Muslims to believe in Jesus' miraculous birth, his miracles and to acknowledge his status as one of the mightiest Messengers.
