While violence has historically pervaded religions from all over the globe, since 2002 Americans have been generally split over the idea of whether Islam is more likely than other religions to encourage violence.

Highlights from a major survey completed in 2012 by the Pew Research Center shows that the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims broadly agree on the core tenants of the Islamic faith, but differ significantly in opinions about what groups and practices are a part of Islam.

Islam requires five Articles of Faith which are: a declaration of faith, five daily prayers, charity, fasting in the month of Ramadan, and pilgrimage to Makkah.
Millenials and Islam
The Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs has found that Millenials are generally split on whether the values of Islam are at odds with the American way of life, but the majority believe that muslims should be allowed to build an Islamic center or mosque in their local community.
