A basic tenet of Hinduism is the belief that everything in the world is an aspect of Brahman. The concept of karma is best described as the sum effect of one’s actions during life.

Muhammad was raised by his uncle and grew up to become a merchant in the city of Mecca. Muhammad reported that the angel told him that Allah was the one and only true and all-powerful God. Most Muslims were polytheistic. The five Pillars of Islam include a profession of faith, five daily prayers, charity for the poor, and making the journey to Mecca. The record of Muhammad’s behavior and teachings is known as the Sunna.
The Hebrews' religion was known as Judaism. Accounts of the Hebrews’ early history appear in five sacred books called a Torah. The Hebrew people made a covenant, or a solemn agreement, to follow God’s law. In a journal known as the Exodus, the Hebrews made their journey to Mecca. According to Hebrew history, Moses was chosen by God to receive a collection of moral laws known as the Ten Commandments. The Hebrews believed the land of Canaan was promised to them by God. Israel's first king was a man named Saul, chosen for his military leadership. Shortly after the death of King Solomon, Israel’s Twelve Tribes formed two kingdoms. One was called Israel and the other was called Judah. Unlike most other ancient peoples, the Hebrews practiced Monotheism, belief in only one god. Written by early Jewish scholars, the Talmud contains explanations and interpretations of the other sacred texts.
