Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Allah is the Muslim title used for what?

Answer: God

In Islam, God is usually called Allah. However, Allah also has 99 names that Muslims don't use very much. These names include Al Rahim meaning the merciful and Al Majid meaning the glorified.
2. Which of the following is NOT a surah in the Qur'an?

Answer: Al Shajarah

Al shajarah in Arabic means the tree which is not a surah. Surah means a chapter in Islam's holy book, the Qur'an. There are 114 Surahs in the Qur'an.
3. Which of the following food and/or drinks are Muslims mainly not allowed to eat/drink?

Answer: alcohol and pig

According to the Qur'an, Muslim's holy book, you cannot drink alcohol because you won't be able to control yourself and you cannot eat pig because it is considered unclean.
4. Shahada, sala, sawm, and hajj are four of the five pillars of Islam. What is the fifth one?

Answer: zakat

Shahada is the creed, sala is prayer, sawm is fasting which means to not eat or drink anything from sunrise to sunset, and hajj is visiting Mecca (birthplace of Muhammad). Zakat is when you give to the poor. Sunni is a type of Muslim, while the other type is Shi'a. Qira'a is when you read.
5. The Qur'an came down to prophet Muhammad when he was at what age?

Answer: 40

Muhammad is the prophet of Islam. When he was 40 years old, Gabriel came down to tell him about the Qur'an and Allah. This all happened in a cave named Hira.
6. How many prayers did Muslims originally have to pray a day?

Answer: 50

In the Qur'an, it is said that originally Allah decided that Muslims should pray fifty times a day. But Moses told Muhammad that the people were too weak for it and he told Muhammad to ask Allah to lower the daily prayers. So Muhammad asked Allah and Allah lowered the prayer to forty. Moses said this was still too much so Muhammad asked Allah again and Allah kept lowering the prayers until it got to five. Moses thought that this number should be lowered but Muhammad was too ashamed to ask Allah again.
7. What do all Muslims have to do before prayer?

Answer: Cleansing

Wudu (cleansing) is when you wash your arm, foot, face, and hair with water in preparation of prayer. Wudu is said to clean a person's body. Women cannot perform prayer if they are in their period because they can't control it and it is considered unclean.
8. In Ramadan, there is a special night where it is said that it was the night of the revelation of the first verses of Qur'an to Muhammad. What is this night called?

Answer: Laylat Al-Qadr

All of these answers are related to Laylat Al-Qadr. Laylat Al-Qadr means the blessed night. Sunnah is the prayer that Muslims pray on this night. Al Alaq is the Surah revealed on that night. Hira is the cave all of this happened in.
9. Malakh is a name for what?

Answer: angels

Malakh means messenger in Arabic because angels used to send messages to prophet Muhammad. It is said that on every person there are two angels, one on the right side and one on the left. They record the deeds and sins of that person.
10. Which of the following is NOT haram (sinful)?

Answer: having a party

Interest is haram because it is considered as cheating someone out of their money. Muslims believe that hardworking money brings the best of things. Playing at a casino is also haram because it is also considered as cheating people out of their money.
