Well... Islam has no central authority that defines what Muslims actually believe. Everyone is free to follow their own local teacher.
That means that intelligent, mature, civilized Muslims tend to worship in an intelligent, mature, civilized way. But backward, undeducated, primitive people tend to worship in a backward, uneducated, primitive way.
The same is true of the Catholic church, to a somewhat lesser extent. When you compare the way Catholicism is worshiped in civilized countries to how it is worshiped in less advanced countries... you could wonder if it's even the same religion.
