A Muslim is a follower of the Islamic faith. Contrary to what appears to be, from the vast majority of the widely bigoted definitions other users of this website have submitted, popular belief, Mulsims follow a religion that is no better or worse than any other and is not a terrorist religion.
Muslims follow the prophet Muhammad.
Contrary to popular belief, jihad (holy war), although it is required by Islam, is often not a literal war. In fact, it is believed in the Islamic faith that inner war is the highest of all holy wars--meaning that one must fight inside oneself the way that many non-Muslims do on a day-to-day basis to be a better, holier person.
In Islam, Jews and Christians are accepted as "people of the book" because they use the same holy books that Muslims believe in and the Koran comes from.
Muslim terrorism often only comes from the power-hungry who abuse religion (and it cannot be denied that this hasn't occurred in all religions, particularly Christianity) and the uneducated who have been given misinformation by the power-hungry. Islam in itself is not a terrorist faith and never has been. Also, the notion that Islam was originally spread by early terrorists galloping through the Middle East on camel back is untrue and is a notion similar to the fact that a reason Christianity is so prevalent worldwide is that it was sometimes spread by force and violence, despite the fact that violence is an undeniable violation of the laws set forth in Christianity.
Muslim: Hi everyone I'm a Muslim and I'm not a terrorist.

A muslim is someone who practises the religion of Islam; the only religion today in which The Lord commands the people to worship him alone, afterall, he is the One who created everything.
The Muslim is the one that worships Allah alone

Muslim- a follower/believer of the religion of Islam. Muslims leave normal lives like you and I, only they are more strict on certain subjects. Like many other races, muslims are often misunderstood to be terrorists/anti-semitics/anti-christian/anarchists/anti-american. Most muslims do not commit acts of terrorism. Due to the actions of a few bad muslims, they have singlehandedly created a sterotypical image of a muslim: a towel headed, fanatical, suicidal, pyshcopath. They are one of the most misunderstood people on earth. Many people say that if we kill all the muslims, then there would be no more terrorists activities. That is genocide, and it would makes us no better than the nazis. Many of the things we use today are from muslim decent. Like coffee, algebra,and the concept of zero.

The second largest religion in the world. This religion oftentimes is the scapegoat for terrorism, but in reality is a peaceful religion, although these days some people claim to be Muslims to justify their own actions. For example, Osama bin Laden.
"I'm a Muslim, so I pray 5 times a day."
"I don't eat pork, I'm a Muslim."

a beatiful religion most people dont understand islam or anything about it yet make up stuff everyone in this generation is brainwashed. whats wrong with wearing a hijab? we just dont want anything wrong happening too us. muslims have the same rights like everyone else on this planet.FYI in the bible it says christians are also supposed to wear hijabs or shave off their hair. Yes there are people who mislead or religion but theres people who mislead every religion.

One who submits to the will of God. They have a bad rep for terrorism, but really that is only 10% of all Muslims in the world. Many of them are horrified by that 10% and wish they would change. They live in almost every country and are just as law abiding as the rest of us. They value hospitality, generosity, celibacy, kindness and are really some of the greatest people you will ever meet if you can put away your fear and get to know them. Not every Arab is a Muslim!!!!! Every Muslim believe that there is no other God but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet.
Please stop saying that Muslims are all terrorists; it's like saying every American is a loud, obnoxious person.
