Islam is a monotheistic, Abrahamic religion based on the teachings of the Qur'an , a religious book considered by its adherents to be the verbatim word of God (Allah), and the Islamic prophet Muhammad's personally demonstrated examples for implementing them. The Qur'an states that all Muslims must believe in God, his revelations, his angels, his messengers, and in the "Day of Judgment". Also, there are other beliefs that differ between particular sects. The Sunni concept of predestination is called divine decree, while the Shi'a version is called divine justice. Unique to the Shi'a is the doctrine of Imamah, or the political and spiritual leadership of the Imams.
