What is Islam?:

The name of the religion is Islam, which comes from an Arabic root word meaning “peace” and “submission.” Islam teaches that one can find peace in one’s life by submitting to Almighty God (Allah) in heart, soul and deed. The same Arabic root word gives us “Salaam alaykum,” (“Peace be with you”), the universal Muslim greeting.

·        ISLAM IS NOT A NEW RELIGION

·        ISLAM MEANS TO SUBMIT TO GOD

·   ADAM & EVE, ABRAHAM, DAVID, SOLOMON,MOSES, JESUS ARE ALL PROPHETS OF GOD/ISLAM

·     THE MESSAGE OF THE PROPHETS IS THE SAME- ONENESS OF GOD

·   ONLY RELIGION ACCEPTABLE IN THE EYES OF GOD IS ISLAM

 

 

Who is a Muslim?:

A person who believes in and consciously follows Islam is called a Muslim, also from the same root word. So, the religion is called “Islam,” and a person who believes in and follows it is a “Muslim”.

Allah is the proper name for Almighty God, and is often translated merely as “God.” Allah has other names that are used to describe His characteristics: the Creator, the Sustainer, the Merciful, the Compassionate, etc. Islam holds to a strict monotheism. Any worship and prayers directed at saints, prophets, other human beings or nature is considered idolatry.

The Prophet Muhammad’s (peace be upon him) Message of Peace

A major part of the Prophet’s mission was to bring peace to the world. To inculcate such feelings, the Prophet would preach to his followers, “You are all Adam’s offspring and Adam was made of clay.” And in his prayers to his Creator, he said, “O Lord, all Your servants are brothers.”
