Islam, which means submission, is a word derived from the Arabic word Salam

Islam, which means submission, is a word derived from the Arabic word Salam, or peace, implying contentment with God and all His creations. It is an Abrahamic religion that stresses absolute surrender to the one true God, known in Arabic as Allah.

The Islamic Faith Gallery encourages reflection and personal interpretation through its panels and objects, including a Qur’an which is over 200 years old. In this Gallery, guests can learn more about the Islamic faith including the five pillars: declaration of faith, daily prayer rituals, charity payments, fasting during Ramadan, and pilgrimage to Mecca.
