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

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.

Islam - means peace and submission or surrender to God, and means peace so Islam is the religion of peace. A religion that wants whats good for mankind and wants evil away from mankind...

Example :

boy : hi what natio are you?
girl: im a turk
boy : u muslim? arent turks muslims
girls: yepz...im muslim
boy: oh okies...its a pity about the media portraying muslims badly eh?
girl: yea

*reading other hate-based definitions and ROFL*


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.

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

The definition of Islam is not found in any of the entries below, or even this one for that matter. To truly understand this religion or do it any sort of justice, do some research. Reading biased opinions made by ignorant people will not give you any clear or truthful definition of Islam.
Internet-loving tween: Dude, isnt Mo getting married next week? Even though we're 11? Muslims do that, right, like as a part of Islam?

Informed Individualist Tween:...No.

the religion that is misunderstood by most of the people who have written about it before me. I'm positive that the "Kur'an" they read is 100% fake (because Amazon even sold fake Kur'ans with intro's such as "death to America"). There is nothing in the Kur'an that says you should kill non-muslims. In fact, Islam states that killing one person (no matter from what race or religion, because Islam states all humans are equal) is like killing all of humanity and that helping one person is like helping all of humanity. Plus, Islam orders that followers must believe in all prophets, not just Muhammed. The anti-Islam writings before me are all results of the misunderstanding all Islam. But I don't blame them, becuase those people are the victims of propaganda.
propaganda victim: "Islam encourages terror, it says so in the Kur'an"

the awake one: "which Kur'an did you read?!? the real Kur'an which has never been altered says that all people are brothers and forbids killing."
