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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
2. A monotheistic religion derived from the words "Submission" and "Peace" which has been a target of religious hatred because of roughly %0.01 of its population.
