Another girl is late and has no credit on her phone, asks a guy who happens to have a beard (not too long just right) and asks to borrow his phone. Without a hesitation he lets her call her freind. The girl asks the guy if he is a muslim cause she recognises the beard( some muslim guys choose to grow the beard cause the prophet Muhhammed grew a beard, keeping in mind its suppose to be a handful and not long and dirty) the guy says "yes"
a few examples of what muslims do
He must do the follwoing or is not considered a muslim:
1.Shahadah (Testimony of Faith)
The first pillar of Islam is to believe and declare the faith by saying the Shahadah (lit. 'witness'), known as the Kalimah.
2.Salah (Daily Ritual Prayers)
Prayer (Salah), in the sense of worship, is the second pillar of Islam. Prayer is obligatory and must be performed five times a day. These five times are dawn (Fajr), immediately after noon (Dhuhr), mid-afternoon ('Asr), sunset (Maghrib), and early night (Isha').
3.Sawm (Fasting the Month of Ramadhan)
The fourth pillar of Islam is fasting. Allah prescribes daily fasting for all able, adult Muslims during the whole of the month of Ramadan, the ninth month of the lunar calendar, beginning with the sighting of the new moon.
4.Zakah (Alms Tax for Poor)
The third pillar of Islam is the alms-tax (Zakah). The word in Arabic implies "purification" and it is understood to mean that a person "purifies" his holdings of wealth from greed and stinginess.
5.Hajj (Pilgrimage to Mecca)
The fifth pillar of Islam is to make a pilgrimage (Hajj) to Makkah, in Saudi Arabia, at least once in one's lifetime. This pillar is obligatory for every Muslim, male or female, provided that he/she is physically and financially able to do so.

2. His angels
3. Books Qur'an , bible , torah ...ETC
4. prophets over 100 prophets including Jesus , mosses Muhhamad Peace be upon them all
5. Day of judgment.
prenounce muslim as Mu-z-lim but mus-lim.
The Qur'an confirms his virgin birth, and a special surah of the Qur'an is entitled "Mary." The Qur'an describes the Annunciation as follows:
tell you what
a muslim really
and the Christians, and the Sabians -whoever believes
in God and the Last Day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord. And there will be no fear for them, nor shall they grieve" (2:62, 5:69,).
"We believe in God, and in what has been revealed
to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma'il,
Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books)
given to Moses, Jesus, and the prophets, from their
Lord: We make no distinction between one and another
among them, and to God do we bow our will (in Islam)." (Surat Al Imran; 3:84).
"...and nearest among them in love to the
believers will you find those who say, 'We
are Christians,' because amongst these are
men devoted to learning and men who have renounced
the world, and they are not arrogant" (5:82).
"O you who believe! Be helpers of God -
as Jesus the son of Mary said to the Disciples,
'Who will be my helpers in (the work of) God?'
Said the disciples, 'We are God's helpers!'
Then a portion of the Children of Israel believed,
and a portion disbelieved.But We gave power to
those who believed, against their enemies, and
they became the ones that prevailed" (61:14).
"We had Jesus, the son of Mary, follow in
their footsteps in order to confirm what had
come before him from the Torah and We gave
him the Gospel which contains guidance and Light,to confirm what he already had in the Old Testament,and as guidance and a lesson for those who do their duty.
Let the people of the Gospel judge by what God has sent down in it; Those who do not judge by what God has sent down are perverse!" The Quran 5:45
DO YOU STILL CALL US INTOLERANT?
TO TERRORISTS WHO CLAIM TO BE MUSLIMS - you're not, the biggest proof is you havent read the quran:
" Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair admonition, and argue with them in the kindest way. your Lord knows best who is misguided from His way.And He knows best who are guided." (Surat an-Nahl; 16:125).
The recompense for an injury
is an injury equal thereto (in degree),
but if a person forgives and makes reconciliation,
his reward is due from God,
for God loves not those who do wrong.
But indeed, if any do help and defend themselves
after a wrong done to them,
against such there is no cause of blame.
The blame is only against those who oppress men
with wrongdoing and insolently transgress
beyond bounds through the land,
defying right and justice.
For such there will be a penalty grievous (in the Hereafter).
But indeed, if any show patience and forgive,
that would truly be an affair of great resolution.
Goodness and evil are not equal.
Repel evil with what is better.
Then that person with whom there was hatred,
may become your intimate friend!
And no one will be granted such goodness
except those who exercise patience and self-restraint,
none but people of the greatest good fortune.
"It may be that God will grant love (and friendship) between you and those whom ye (now) hold as enemies. For God has power (over all things), and God is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.
God does not forbid you, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for God loves those who are just."
And Muhammad personally would be appalled by the notion of women being forced to wear veils. He firmly believed men and women to be equals.
