Islam 02

Islam is a belief in Allah which means God in Arabic. Because people are not portrayed in its religious art, Islamic artists traditionally focused on beautiful flowing script (calligraphy), complex geometric patterns and architecture. How much do you know about the religion which created such art?

If you are a Muslim and want to test your knowledge of Islam, or simply want to find out more about the religion, we have 20 quizzes in our Specialist section that you can play free of charge. There you will find out about the five pillars, the prophets, etiquette and democracy.

First, try this KS2 religious education quiz to see how much you already know.
