God – (Islam) How is Allah described in the Qur’an? What do Muslims learn about Allah and the faith through the Qur’an?

This term the children will be introduced to Islam.  They will learn that Muslims believe in one God, who is unique and invisible. – they call their God – Allah. Muslims believe that there are many different characteristics to God, just like Christians. We will learn about the Muslim creation story and compare it to the Christian story we read last term, noting the similarities!  Next we will explore the Qu'ran and how important its words are to Muslims.  Finally we will find out about the rules given inside the Qu'ran and how Muslims try to follow these rules.
