A self-righteous, violent, facist, hypocritical but monotheistic religion that was founded by Muhammad, and follows the violent teachings of the Kuran that demand Jihad against anyone in the world who is not a Muslim, for the intent of “conversion.” In order to earn favor with God, you must follow seven pillars—none of which will save you. This is what separates Islam from Christianity, in that Muslims believe salvation can be achieved by good works, while Christianity teaches that salvation comes only through faith in the resurrected Jesus Christ. Muslims (followers of Islam) call the supreme deity (God) Allah and Muhammad is his prophet.

Islam and Muslims claim the word Islam means “peace” but is anything but peace. It is a religion of perpetual outrage and violence against anyone of other faiths. Islam promotes the killing and violence of non-Muslims, for conversion. Its followers have a dangerous preoccupation with death and suicide attacks against people as a result. This is an abomination to most religions because the real, loving God wants Salvation thru faith and not force. Islam hates people of other religions. It embraces terrorism for the sake of destroying the West, Jews and Israel. Islam believes Jews and Christians came from pigs, which is crazy. This is Naziism at its finest. You don’t believe me that Islam is a dangerous religion? Sura 8:12-13 says “Give courage to the believers. I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers!' ‘ How about this one: "When you meet the unbelievers in jihad, chop off their heads. And when you have brought them low, bind your prisoners rigorously. Then set them free or take ransom from them until the war is ended." (Sura 47.4) Nuff said. Muhammad was a murderer so why shouldn’t his phony religion be? Islam also teaches that its followers will eventually rule the world, and the destruction of America is in their future. This is partly why 9-1-1 happened. If you don’t believe that Islam is a facist religion that wants to rule the world then I have some beachfront property in Kansas I would like to sell you.
Islam is a religion of nothing but hatred, violence and death. This explains the epidemic of violoence in the Middle East.

Derived from arabic roots meaning 'peace' and 'submission to God'. Those who follow islam and submit to God (known on arabic as Allah) are known as muslims (note the small 'm').

Someone who calls themselves a Muslim (big 'M') may or may not follow Islam in the same way that someone who calls themselves a Christian may or maynot follow the teachings of Christ.

Followers of islam take their guidance from the Qu'ran which is believed to be the word of God and also from hadith - which are trusted stories about the guidance that one of the prophets (Muhammed) gave.

This is like Christians taking guidance from the gospels - stories about what Jesus (another prophet in Islam) taught.

You cannot be a muslim if you don't believe in all the prophets God sent including Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohammad and many others (25 are named in the Quran but we are told there were thousends).

Muslims have lived peacefully in the UK for centuries. An 8th century anglo-saxon kings produced coins in the declaring in arabic 'there is none worthy of worship but God' (the islamic declararion of faith). The first English translation of the Qu'ran was written in 1649 and the office of national statistics records a Mosque in cardiff in 1860.
related words:
Islamic is something relating to Islam.

Islamist is a made up word that muslims never use. It implies a radical form of behaviour that deviates from the teachings of Islam and is used when the media and politicians want to say islamic-terrorist and think that us mere mortals will be fooled by their clever twist of language.

A religion created by Muhammad 1400 years ago. Muhammad is a prophet of Islam, although many people say that Adam was the first prophet. Last of the three Abrahamic faiths. Means "submission" in Arabic.

Currently undergoing a period of media scrutiny and is being ravaged by terrorists, extremists and Islam haters.

The Quran is the holy text, while the Hadith is the collection of saying from Muhammad and close friends.
Islam is a good religion, however it must undergo a reform and Muslims must learn to be tolerant of other cultures, religions, beliefs and ways of life of other people. Islam does not always have a good record when it comes to this, and Muslims often do not live in harmony with different people. Take current examples of Philippines, Thailand, Iraq, Pakistan and Africa for example.

We are seeing a new wave of reformist Muslims coming along in Islam. Hopefully this will be the change we need to secure a more peaceful world.

islam does not mean "peace" islam means "submission"
The Arabic term 'islam means "submission" and itself comes from the term 'aslama, which means "to surrender, resign oneself." In Islam, the fundamental duty of each member is to submit to "Allah" (Arabic for "the God" which was Hubel the god that the family of Muhammad worshiped) and whatever Allah wants of them.

Second largest religion in the world. Islam is based on the Qu'ran, a text dictated by Muhammed (the last of the prophets.) The Qu'ran gave many more rights to women a thousand years ago than America had in the 1800s, although the religion evolved to be strongly biased in favor of men. Followers of Islam, muslims, have been given a bad name by the Taliban, which was trying to re-create life in the time of Muhammed (which was a pretty bad time to be alive.) Terrorists think they are defending Islam by hurting countries that stomped on them before. Conservatives think they are protecting Christianity by pounding other countries into the dust, while they give Christianity the bad name of a trigger-happy terrorist, worthy of being attacked.
Omg, dad, that guy must be a terrorist, he isn't white.

the religion founded by their prophet muhammed .
the precise definition of the word means "total submission" (to god) .
a person of that faith is called a "muslim" , which means "one who submitts" .
back in the earlier times, the religion was known as "the faith of muhammed" , and the followers were called "muhammedins"

the muslims believe that god spoke to their prophet muhammed and told him the way to heaven and the way to live by his name, and to spread his words. he was illiterate , so another man wrote down everything that he said, and the holy book of the quaran was made. they believe in most of the main prophets that the jews and christians believe in, some of them include moses, abraham, david, mary, joseph, paul, john the baptist & the disciples of jesus. they believe in jesus as a prophet , but not as christ or son of god, but as a messenger of god. in the qua'ran jesus is the second highest prophet next to muhammed. muhammed is also their last prophet, there are no more prophets after him.
islam is the faith of the followers of muhammmed

*reading other hate-based definitions and ROFL*

WARNING! THIS IS NOT FOR THE IGNORANT.

A religion supports peace and based on submission to God.
Very tolerant, yes. The religion & teachings, yes. The people? not always (humans aren't perfect). if u are interested.. : (w w w . w h a t i s i s l a m . o r g . u k) or (9 9 i s l a m . c o m ---> NICEEEE LAYOUT)

Misunderstood. Misunderstood. Misunderstood. Misunderstood.

I used to live in Australia and attended 3 schools.
One of them is catholic school, yet I'm a Muslim there.
There were also a few Muslim friends there too and while they were commenting on the teachings of school, I was very upset that they're Muslims but don't tolerate other religions and shit-talked them (idk why, are they real Muslims?).

Hey, Islam teaches us toleration. If a Muslim really practiced ALL of the God/Allah's commands, he/she WILL tolerate other religions.

And for mistaken surahs like we should kill non-believers, that was messenged at times of war (ex. crusade), so think about it, would you let your enemies attack, kill your families, steal your money, you while you 'tolerate' them at war?

But in real daily life, they must be nice to them, (listen, bros & sis.) So bombing with the intention to kill innocent non-believers is NOT Islamic.

To Muslim-haters, think about what you're saying first. Yeah i know it's fun to make fun of people to make yourself feel better. Ha.

All mistakes are done by humans, not God's.

Peace & Love ~ :)

oh, and stop being racists :| you're just proving to the world that you haven't passed grade school geography AND you need counseling. Sorry.
Extremist Muslim: LETS BOMB BALI FOR KILLING NON-BELIEVERSSSS!!!!!!!!! WEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!1

Muslim: Huh? Astaghfirullah. Go read The Holy Quran and learn the REAL Islam.
