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.

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

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.

Don't blame Islam, blame the people.

Primarily Arabic religion teaching peace, love, and dedication to the one True God--Allah. The prophet Muhammad was given the direct word of Allah by the angel Gabriel, where it was taken down verbatim and has remained unchanged since. Their holy book, the Qu'ran, names several miracles performed by Muhammad by permission of Allah, as well as several scientific truths proved only recently by modern technology--the borders of saline and freshwater, the shape of a microscopic embryo in development, the concept that the earth and heavens were one united 'dust' before they were separated (as in the Big Bang Theory). Right-wing Christians have corrupted the security Muslims share in their faith into an image of terrorism and evil, although the true meaning behind the faith is of peace and acceptance, as they take Christians and Jews as fellow followers of the Book--misguided, but still devout to the same God.
The advent of Islam in the 6th century came as the Bible became corrupted and Allah sent His final prophet.
