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.

1. A pretty cool religion that supported Science, Philosophy, and woman's rights but which was given a bad name by some very messed up fundamentalists who abused and bastardized it.

2. A monotheistic religion which has been a target of religious hatred because of roughly %0.01 of its population.
A Muslim is a follower of Islam.

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.
