A monotheistic Abrahamic religion, common in the middle east, founded by the supposed prophet Muhammed and worshipping the deity Allah. According to the religion, "God is One." It is descended from Ishmael (As opposed to Judaism and Christianity, which descended from Isaac.) Adherents (Which are called "Muslims") believe that Biblical figures such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus were prophets of Allah. Another prophet, reffered to as Muhammed, appears only in the Qu'ran (one of the muslim holy books). There are three other associated holy books, the Torah, the Zabur, and the Injil (Gospel.)
Islam is the religion associated with most -stan countries.

Islam means the religion of peace. A person following Islam will find that he or she is surrounded by noble teachings, the aim of which is to establish peace between man and Allah, the Creator of all;between man and man; and between man and the rest of Allah’s creation.How does such a religion deal with the issue of terrorism? And what does the word terrorist mean? Dictionaries will define a terrorist as one who systematically uses violence and intimidation to achieve political ends –or one who controls or forces others to do something by violence, fear or threats.All these definitions are covered by two words in the Holy Qur’an, the sacred book of Islam: Fitnah and Ikrâh.In the Holy Qur’an, God begins to deal with the issue of terrorism by teaching Muslims never to become terrorists in the first place.Two of the very first verses of our Holy Book say: ‘Al-Fitnatu ashad-du minal qatl’ –meaning that in the sight of Allah, ‘persecution, or making people constantly fear for their lives, is much worse than killing’. And also:‘Lâ ikrâha fid-dîn’–‘There shall be no compulsion in religion’, that is to say,that no one has the right to force others into complying with their demands or compelling others to follow their line of thinking.Allah reminds us that it is those who have abandoned Him and thrown away all good, and divested themselves of every shred of human decency, that are the ones who will eventually resort to terrorizing others,forcing them into complying with their demands.
Islam in life: One day he found a mother bird beating her wings on the ground in distress. He asked his companions: ‘Who has done this?’ They said: ‘We took her young ones out of her nest.’ The Holy Prophet (pbh) said: ‘Restore them to her. No mother must be tormented on account of her child.’On another occasion, he found one of his companions setting fire to an anthill. He immediately told them to put out the fire saying: ‘No one has the right to torment others with fire.’As Allah Almighty says in the Holy Qur’an that the true believers are: ‘those who suppress their anger and forgive people’, likewise, the Holy Messenger of Allah, Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, said: ‘Allah is Gentle and loves gentleness in all things. Make things easy and do not make them hard. And cheer people up and do not repel them.’It is clear that the true believers and all other good, honest people are always on the receiving end of terrorism, never on the delivering end. Whenever such tendencies appear in society by which the peace is being disturbed and people cannot live their lives without fear, Muslims are enjoined to counter them first of all by reasoning with those responsible for the disturbance. The Holy Qur’an says:Call unto the way of your Lord that is the way of justice and goodness with wisdom and goodly exhortation, and argue with them in a way that is best. (Ch.16: v.126)

A religion about peace in which its followers, Muslims, follow the teachings of God and his last prophet Mohammad. One misconception about Islam and Muslims is that it is a religion of violence in which its followers are to kill, enslave, or convert all non-Muslims which is not true. Many quote passages in the Quran such as
Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with God, for which He had sent no authority".
or
Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah disbelief is worse than killing...
but if they desist, then lo! God is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah disbelief and worshipping of others along with God and worship is for God alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)"

Despite these passages one must not take the Quran literally, also the Quran was written at a time when Muslims ha to the defend themselves violently. When it says Unbelievers it means Muslims whom do not adhere to the faith of Islam despite having the title. Same goes for infidels and non-believers.
Muslims follow the religion of Islam

A religion of peace which follows the teachings of their Prophet Muhammad and their God is known as Allah. Don't confuse Muslims with radical terrorists which kill people and destroy buildings. Those terrorists think they are doing good for their God, but in actual fact, they are mindless and have few understanding for what Islam is. They have misinterpreted the teachings of their Holy Book, the Quran. Read more about them and think for yourself.

In Islam there is one God called Allah he is the creator of this world, and is not human and doesn't have any children. Muslims are followers of Islam and believe in Allah, The Prophets, and The Quran.

There are a lot of racist and inaccurate definitions and to set them straight, Islam does NOT promote terrorism or violence. If you actually read the Quran you will realize that Islam is about peace. You cannot judge MILLIONS of people on Media Lies, the media only shows the destruction caused by Muslims and exaggerates on it HOWEVER UNFORTUNATELY IN ALL RELIGIONS There are terrorists and you CANNOT JUDGE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE on a bunch of terrorists. Followers of Islam are peaceful people.
What religion do you believe in?

the last religion from God to humankind
God sent many prophets since the begining of humanity to remind them of their true purpose which is to worship God & make earth a wonderful place to live
people kept on forgetting their teachings & editing their holy books that's why God sends a new prophet
when Isa (Jesus) peace be upon him was sent to the Jews they were supposed to convert to christianity because it's the most true religion by that time
after 6 centuries of editing the bible and changing in the true Christianity God sent his last prophet Muhammad with Islam
that's why we (the muslims) wish that all people become muslims cause it's the last religion and the only one not changed
we are not saying that Christianity is wrong
but Christianity today is totally different from what it was
we respect Jesus & his mother a lot but as humans
if a God has a son how can we say he's a God ??
a true God is the most powerfull and need no son or anything that make him resemble his creatures
that's our belief
but Islam never forced anyone to convert to it " NEVER"
please read about a topic from reliable sources before talking about it
Christianity had a violent history during crusades
can we say that your religion taught you that? ofcourse not !

you just can't judge all people or an entire belief based on some examples

by the way I don't & never met anyone who thinks that our purpose is to kill Americans !
that's so stupid !
reading about Islam will change many of your misunderstandings
