Can You Match the Figure to Their Religion?
by Khadija Leon

Christmas. Passover, and Eid, oh my! When it comes to religion, these are some of the most recognized holidays. While they usually guarantee you a day off, they're usually created for or by some of the major figures of the religion. With all the religions in the world, could you match the figure to their religion?

If you were to travel all around the world, you'd find hundreds of religions. While it might be hard to identify the heads of their religion, there are a few religions that are practiced by millions and billions of people.

Christianity is the most-practiced religion in the world, with over 2.2 billion followers. Islam comes in second with 1.6 billion, while Hinduism is third with 1 billion. The top 10 of the list is rounded out with Buddhism (#4), Sikhism (#7), and Judaism (#8). Because these are some of the most followed faiths, their figures are easier to recognize than others. Can you match all the figures to these religions?

Jesus Christ is at the center of both Christianity and Judaism. Could you recognize him? Buddhism honors Siddhartha Gautama and Ashoka while Muslims honor the prophet Muhammad. While you might know their names, do you know their faces? We hope so! 

Can you match these figures to their religion? Let's find out!

We're praying for you!
