Islam is the world's fastest growing faith. It all began in 610 C.E. when the Prophet Muhammad received revelations of the Quran in Mecca. Islam's reputation of promoting a strict and controlling government, female oppression, civil war, and terrorism is not completely correct. Islam is a rich and complex religion that is often misunderstood in the modern world.

In his autobiography, Malcolm X declared that Ali "captured the imagination and support of the entire dark world". Despite Nation of Islam members being encouraged to not participate in political proceedings Muhammad Ali continued to bolster the Civil Rights Movement by appearing at key gatherings and organised political events. Muhammad Ali received praise from many other key civil activists of the time. The Congress of Racial Equality's (CORE) Floyd McKissick said: "Ali was one of the greatest living Americans because he is one of the few people who lives by his convictions." Stokely Carmichael, the famous political activist, called him "my hero".
However, the diversity of the cultures and pre-existing beliefs in this area meant that not everybody could accept Judaism and the laws and customs that came with it as their single religion. This made sects necessary, and there were a great number of these; Christianity and Islam were the most popular and enduring of them. In today's society, Christianity claims the largest percentage of the world's population, while Islam is the second largest faith. Therefore, although historically Judaism shares a very close relationship with Christianity and Islam, its two main sects have now overtaken it as the world's most popular religions. Today, if a non-Jew, a non-Muslim and a non-Christian came together and examined their faiths, they would find no real faults between them.
Michael Hart is an amateur historian and also the author of The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History. In this book Hart lists in order the people he believes to be the top 100 most influential people. In this essay I am going to look at three specific people, and compare Hart’s ranking of their impact on society against my own. The three people are Jesus of Nazareth, the founder of Christianity; Paul of Tarsus, Christianity’s most important missionary; and Muhammad, the founder of Islam. Since religion did play a considerable role in the shaping of civilizations, it is no coincidence that these three people are respectively the three most important people in the founding of the top two religions in the world.
Imagine having to walk twelve miles in the snow or ride a bus thirty minutes just to get to school in the morning when there is a school two miles away from your house, how about having to use a textbook that has not been updated for years. That is exactly what it felt like to be an African American child during times of segregation in our country. In this paper I am going to explore the reasons for the Brown v. Board of Education case, the case itself and the affect it had on society then and our society now. Segregation started in the United Sates after the end of the civil war during the reconstruction era when the government created what was known as Jim Crow laws which stated that states could impose legal punishments on people who consorted

Therefore, citizens of Maldives have to be Muslims and any other religion is punished by a death penalty. What would happen if Sharia courts in Britain were approved as an equivalent of Courts of the United Kingdom and gained power? Would such an extremism be possible even in Europe? To sum up, the statistics speak for themselves and the Britain’s fear of becoming an Islamic state is definitely not far-fetched. There is no doubt that the number of the Muslims in The United Kingdom has increased at an alarming rate over the past few decades.
