Islam is the most recent and fastest growing of the world's three great monotheistic religions (which include Judaism and Christianity). Followers of Islam, called Muslims, are found in many countries around the world. Muslims follow the Qur'an, their sacred text, which they believe to be the final revelation of monotheistic faith as revealed to Muhammad, the last Prophet of Islam.
