10. The moon-god
Some believe that Muslims pray to a moon-god or an idol, which is absolutely wrong. There is no such thing in Islam and idol worshipping is related to other religions such as Hinduism.
9. Muhammad (P.B.U.H) wrote the Quran
Another wrong perception about Islam is that the Quran was written by the final messenger of God, Muhammad (P.B.U.H). However, there is no such belief in the Muslims, as they have complete faith that their Holy Book is the word of Allah, which is Arabic for God.
8. Muslim belief about Jesus (P.B.U.H)
Most of the people around the globe believe that Muslims don’t believe in Jesus Christ (P.B.U.H). However, this has got nothing to do with reality, as Quran tells the Muslims that Jesus was also a messenger of Allah, just like Muhammad (P.B.U.H).
6. Islam and terrorism
Whenever there is terrorist activity anywhere in the world, a Muslim is believed to be responsible for it - implying that the religion promotes extremism. However, the Quran clearly mentions that people who kill the innocent are not part of Islam.
Most people know that a Muslim man is allowed to have four wives at a time, but they are unaware of the conditions behind it. A person has to treat all of them equally otherwise he will be answerable to Allah on the day of judgement.
1. Taliban represent Islam
The biggest misconception about Islam and Muslims is related to extremist groups like Taliban, who have nothing to do with religion. They are not a part of Islam, as they don’t follow the teachings of Quran.
