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.

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.

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 - 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...

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.

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.
