What is Islam?


    Islam is an Abrahamic, monotheistic religion which takes its beliefs from the words of The Qur’an and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad. Islam says that there is only one God and Prophet Muhammad is God’s messenger. Islam’s followers are called Muslims and Muslims believe in the oneness of God (Allah in Arabic). The purpose of existing according to Islam is to submit ones will to Allah. In Islam, The Quran is the only true word of God. 

    To follow Islam properly, Muslims adhere to the Five Pillars of Islam and believe in the Seven Articles of Faith (Mentioned below in Detail). Muslims also believe in Abraham, Moses, and Jesus (Ibrahim, Musa, and Isa in Arabic respectively) as Prophets, but believes that the revelations sent from these messengers have been changed. 

    Muslims pursue noble professions and they are also active in their communities. Islam is a peaceful religion, and Muslims strive to make their lives full of good deeds to help themselves, their families, and their communities, regardless if others are Muslims or Non-Muslims. 

    Islam is an intention-based and action-based religion where a Muslim’s deeds speak louder than his or her words. A Muslim’s actions should be truthful and sincere so he or she should exhibit good character.
