    However, Muslims do not believe in evolution because everything was made directly by God for a particular purpose, and nothing came into being accidentally. As the one God who created everything, Muslims believe that Allah has power over everything. (He is omnipotent.) The Qur'an calls Allah the All-powerful. Allah is in control of the universe he made and he has a plan for it. Muslims believe that nothing happens without Allah's consent. Muslims believe that God is merciful and compassionate.

  4. Islam, Wealth & Poverty.

    Natural evil is not caused by a person, it is natural. An example of this is an earthquake or a tsunami. Both of theses types of evil can make a wealthy person much poorer. This is Allah saying he can take things away in an instance. This world is only a test; it is a stepping stone to the next life. This is why we must not be closely connected with our wealth because at the end of the day it is nothing. We get tested on how we earn our money.

  5. The Importance of Ramadan

    is one of the five pillars of Islam and it is necessary for a Muslim to take part. Muslims acknowledge five rules or beliefs as 'pillars of faith'. These are Shahadah to declare their belief, Salat to pray five times a day, Zakat to give a certain amount of money to charity, Sawm to fast and Hajj to make a pilgrimage to Makkah. "Worship Allah, be steadfast in prayer, fast during Ramadan, pay alms to the less fortunate..." Saum, the fourth pillar, is practised during the month of Ramadan. This indicates that Muslims are thinking about the less fortunate during this time and doing it because Allah had told them to.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Can you be a muslim without going to the mosque? Discuss

    "In conclusion, I think that you can be a Muslim and not go to the mosque. This is because Muslims living in non-muslim countries may not get time off work to visit the mosque to pray. Also because some Muslims may wish to worship at home with their families, rather than praying in a mosque. And finally, as a mosque was never mentioned when Muhammad (pbuh) was told to worship five times a day, some Muslims may believe that there is no need to worship in a mosque."

  • Assess the view that Hadith are not useful " Muslims only need the Qur(TM)an.

    "In conclusion some may view the hadith as necessary because it sometimes goes in detail where the Qur'an does not , may give extra useful guidance to Muslims and allow them to learn more about Muhammad's way of life. But on the other hand , hadith may add to any confusion present, and may even contradict the Qur'an , and also perhaps lessen the authority of the Qur'an when the Qur'an explicitly says it is a detailed book and easy to understand."
