Difference Between Druze and Islam

The Druze and Islam are religions that seem to be from the same chain. It is believed that the Druze is derived from the fundamental Islamic principles. This article discusses the different aspects of Islam and Druze and points out the differences between the Druze and Islam.

Druze

The Druze is a religious community that has its origin in linked to Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan. This religious community is one of the lesser popular communities in the world. Druze religion is believed to have originated in the 11th century. It is believed that the Druze community has originated from Ismaili sect. The religious community adds some other philosophies of other religions in this like Neoplatonism.

Islam

Islam is the religion which has its base in the Quran, a holy book of Muslims. The religion of Islam is based on the teachings and examples set by Prophet Muhammad, who is considered the final prophet of God. Islam instigated in Arabian countries during the 7th century. Muslims form a large religious community of the world and live in countries like Indonesia, Africa, China and Russia. Muslims are about 23 percent of the total population of the world. Among world religions, Islam is the second largest religious community which is increasing rapidly.

What is the difference between the Druze and Islam?

The Druze is the religious community that is not considered Islamic by Muslims. According to Muslims, a Muslim is one who has faith in Muhammad as the last Prophet of God . The Druze believe that a person may appear in the form of an Imam or Prophet. The religion of Islam, believes in existence of one God and considers the prophets as devout people sent by God to spread the teachings of Islam. The Islamic religion believes that Muhammad was the last prophet of God while the Druze religion denies the end of prophet hood with Prophet Muhammad. The Druze religion describes God as their leader they pray and believe that one day he will appear again. The followers of Islam believe in existence of one God and worship him. Druze considers Thursday as their day of worship, unlike the religion of Islam, which considers Friday as their day of worship. The Druze and Islam followers both believe in one God and they call God “Allah”. But, the Druze and Islam are different in that Islamic followers merely pray to Allah whereas those of the other religion also worship their leader. The religion of Islam supports the belief that a person gets life only once and they must follow under the rules that appeal to win Allah’s paradise after facing him on the Day of Judgment. The soul of human beings remains in its physical existence even after death. The Druze believe that after death, the soul can enter into another body. Like Islam, the Druze religion also the teachings related to the Day of Judgment when their acts in the world will be judged.

    You are wrong Druze and Islam are to different religions. One : Islam has 3 Sunni, Shiah and Nation of Islam and Druze is One.
    Two : They can have a minimum of 4 wife’s and Druze can have one wife.
    Three : Our book is different to the Quran and its not even close to it. 
    Four : Druze and the Muslims cant stand each other, so its why u see the Druze always with the Catholics.
    Five :  The Druze symbol is the star Green ( Aql “the Universal Mind/Nous) Red(Nafs “the Universal Soul/Amundi) White(Tali “the Future/Effect) Yellow(Kalima “the Word/Logos) Blue( Sabiq “the Potentiality/Cause/Precedent) and we pray to our God the one and only. Muslims – Mohammad 
    Im not saying all muslims are Violent, cruel and terrorists but its how the world sees it. 
    But my point is look at them and then look at us. Druze : http://amit4u.net/vault/blogs/51968/israel-druze-men.jpg  Muslims : http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-2zL8s4PAFaQ/TyqsBRpU1wI/AAAAAAAADq0/GrHf9rnI_9M/s1600/muslims1.jpg
    See the differences and please stop giving false media cause its an offence that you said that the druze are similar to musliems because im know were near that.

      Druze are not muslims. Most Druze do not even know their weird religion. It is a secret religion and we all know anything that is hidden is not good. Judaism, Islam and Christianity are great religions and are open to all. Druze is closed and distrustful.

      I am sorry but you are wrong, We muslims dont pray to muhammad. We just give him blessings and the Nation of Islam is NOT part of islam, it is a seperate religion because they believe God came in a form of a man, and only black people (not meaning to be racist) are the only ones allowed to be part of the religion. White people are considered experiments of scientists in an island. We pray to the one and only Allah, not muhammad, who ever taught you we worship muhammad? We are not christians who worship Jesus! In the pictures, you are taking the evil from the media, and taking good from your religion! Many muslims cooperate with each other like the first picture! Druze is a man made religion, it combines both Islam and Christianity, just like Baha’i, Sikh, Ahmadiyah and many others. They are created by white people who conquered the countries of the middle east to get people to follow them. Please, dont judge islam by what the media gave you! Look at the people who truly follow the book, not only claim to be muslims but dont follow its rules.
