look up any word, like thot:
The literal definition of the word Muslim is “one who submits,”

Meaning one who submits to one, unique, incomparable, and singular God, believing in Him and obeying His commandments.

Whose name in Arabic is "Allaah", literally meaning "The God".

Muslims believe

in the angels created by Him;

in the prophets through whom His revelations were brought to mankind;

in God's complete authority over human destiny, and

in life after death.

Muslims believe in a chain of prophets (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon them all) starting with

Adam and including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Elias, Jonah, John the Baptist and Jesus, peace be upon them.

God's final message to man, a reconfirmation of the eternal message and a summing-up, synopsis, and perfection of all that has gone before was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad , peace be upon him, the last prophet, through the angel Gabriel.
Prophet (peace be upon him) said:

“Every child is born upon the natural way (Muslim). Then its parents make it a Jew, a Christian, or a Zoroastrian. Just like an animal gives birth to a compete animal. Do you ever see one that is born amputated?” Sahīh al-Bukhārī (1385, 4775)

So direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth. Adhere to the fitrah of Allah upon which He has created all people. No change should there be in the creation of Allah . That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know. Quran 30:30

A Muslim is a person who believes in the religion of Islam. Islam is a religion which is similar to Christianity in many ways and anyone who is willing to be a muslim can only be a muslim without being an extremist.

An extremist would:

- Stand on top of a Mail box and curse upon every other religion's belief.
- Scold or harm their women for any reason whatsoever
- Kill people in the name of what they perceive of Islam (an example would be Osama Bin Laden, who is not a Muslim)
- Believe everyone but Muslims are going to hell.
- Watch Porn and say he/she is religious (which is against the Qur'an, once again)

A muslim would:

- Never curse, or if they dare to curse, do so minimally (even though it is against the Islamic Religion) - Hey, not everyone's perfect eh?
- Never harm anyone for any reason unless forced to or asked to by god (which, in the modern day, is impossible by the Qur'an)
- Never kill anyone in the name of Islam, rather die a martyr of Islam.
- Believe what is written in the Qur'an and understand that everyone has a chance of getting into heaven.

- Cover their eyes while a naked person, even half naked, were to walk past them.

A muslim is not a terrorist because Muslims are not allowed to be muslim if they kill anyone. No terrorist is a Muslim
Look at Muhammad, he treats his wife so gently and he never talks to anyone in a rude manner. He is a true muslim because he never swears and never stands on top of his mailbox screaming at either one of his two neighbours who are christian and jewish.

Someone who follows the religion of Islam. Due to the actions of Islamic extremists in the past few years they are often stereotyped as terrorists. Most Muslims are peaceful people. Many forms of Islam are strict which is why Muslims dress in certain ways and do not eat things. They believe that their holy book the Qumran is the absolute teachings of God, who they call Allah. They believe that this message was received by the prophet Muhammad. Much like the bible, the Qumran encourages strict punishments to sinners and those who do not worship in the way they consider to be correct. Most Muslims do not act on these beliefs. A very small minority believe in the process of Jihad, which involves forcefully converting non-Muslims to Islam. Groups such as Al-Qaeda believe in this and have come to be seen as the stereotypical terrorists. A popular phrase is that most or all terrorists are Muslim, which is quite untrue. Many terrorists are Christians and other religions. Muslims believe in the rule of God over the rule of man, so many Islamic countries are led by royal families or religious leaders, and dictators. Another belief of Muslims is that the prophet Muhammad should never be depicted. Incidents in which this has happened have resulted in an uproar in the Muslim community, just as anti-Christian acts have caused protests in religiously conservative areas.
People who believe that Muslims are all terrorists have probably never met a Muslim.
Racist Idiot: All Muslims are terrorists. They should be arrested.

Other Guy: Have you ever met a Muslim?

Racist Idiot: No.

Other Guy: Exactly.
