believe that Allah is the Supreme Creator and Sustainer, all-knowing and transcendent
and yet the arbiter of good and evil, the final judge of men.
I believe in the Five pillars of Faith: i. praying five times daily; ii. charity
through alms giving; iii. fasting during the nineth month; iv. pilgrimage to Holy
Mecca; & v. profession of faith by acknowledging "There is no God but
Allah, Mohammed is His Prophet."
I believe in the Koran as the word of God and sacred scripture mediated through
the Angel Gabriel to Mohammed.
I believe in the direct communion of each man with God, that all are equal in
the eyes of God and therefore priests or other intercessors are unneeded.
I believe in the pure transcendence of God, great beyond imagining -- no form
or idol can be worshipped in His Name.
I believe that the soul of man is immortal, embodied once on earth then entering
Heaven or Hell upon death according to its conduct on earth.
I believe in the Last Judgement and that man should stand in humble awe and fear
of God's wrathful and vengeful power.
I believe that truthfulness should be observed in all circumstances, even though
it may bring injury or pain.
I believe that salvation is only obtained through God's Grace and not through
man's efforts, yet he should do good and avoid all sins, especially drunkenness,
usury and gambling.
