The term for followers of the Islamic religion. Sadly, in light of recent worldly events have een given a horrible name. A few radical "followers" of the religion scewed it for their own personal benifits and have ruined the lives/ increases the racism towards true muslims. The religion is one of peace, actually, and head covering is a choice. Also to wear an entire body veil (burka) is a government run thing, not a religious rule. Saudi Arabia can be blamed for that. There are many good muslim countries (Ex. Lebanon, dubai, jordan, turkey) that are a great mix of westernized and cultural. Very family oriented people, most of the males are inclined towards math/science. Most woman are poetry writers or doctors. Very hard working and driven. Most pretty relgious.
Boy 1: Look at that muslim! He must be a terrorist!
Girl 1: No, that is a very small minority, and a political idea rather than a religious one.

Boy 1: Wow... I feel ignorant now.

An extremely misunderstood religious group of people. Most people only think of them as bad people. Many assume if you are this you are automatically a terrorist which is only ignorance. In reality most Muslims are not violent. The women are beautiful & they have a rich culture. Most people cannot see the true beauty of muslim people because the truth is clouded by bad attention from the media.
Guy: "Oh he looks like a Muslim, we better get out of here!"

Freind: "Relax, I know that guy from back in the day, he's really cool. Just because some people are Muslims doesn't mean they are bad people!"

A lot of people think Muslims are terriost. Not all Muslim hate Americans and want to blow up buildings and people. Most Americans don't understand that Muslim religion is well known in Africa , Asia and the Middle East. There is over 1 billion people that worship Allah known as God in the Muslim religion. The Majority of Muslims come from Africa, Middle East and India. There are two groups of Muslims, one being the Sunni and the other being Shia Sunni is the largeest denomination followed by the Shia. The majority of Sunni Muslims come from Indonesia, Lower Egypt, Somalia, Jordan, Lebannon, Syria, Sri Lanka and Palestine. The Shia believed that the Prohet Muhammad relatives should have ruled Islam. through the blood line. After the death of Muhammad the country of Islam was torn in two.

The Shia wanted Ali Muhammad (cousin and son in law of the Prophet Muhammand) to take over Isam.

The Sunni Mulism wasn't going to be governed by Ali Mu hammad. They wanted a differnt ruler. They decided to have Abu Bakr to lead the Sunni Muslims. Both groups are fighting over who's beliefs are similar to the Prophet Muhammad.

In the Muslim culture the Prophet Muhammad is the annoited one just like Jesus Christ is to Christian and the Jews. This is why you see alot of Muslim men are named Ali or Muhammad. It is a honor to name you son after the Prophet Muhammad or Ali Muhammad. This is similar to the Christian standard of naming your son Daivd,Phillip, Peter, Paul etc. The Sunni believed in a theology system of schools of the Muslim religion. EX: Similar to Greek scholars or diciples of books of Jesus Christ. Each school's has their own opinion of the Prohet Mahammad and Alla. Shia are angry at the Sunni for not continuning the belief of passing the royal blood line of the Prophet Mahammed. Both have a different religious opinion of the Prohet Muhammad. The Shia believe that Muslims were not suppose to mingle with the Christians and the Jews. They believe if you run across a Christian or a Jew you executed them.

The Shia constantly trying to come up with excuese not to follow the Quran. The Quran is similar to the bible. Most Muslims coed of ethics are similar to the Christians and Jewsish faith.
They don't believe in stealing,murder,adultry etc. The Shia don't believe that murder or stealing is a sin.

The Shia do not like Americans, they are the ones that created the Tailban. The Shia Muslims are the ones that are doing most of the terroist work not the Sunni Muslims. The Shia believes that their belief system is more right over the Sunni Muslims. All the Sunni Muslims want to do is create love and peace.
They are the true believers of the Prohet Muhammed.
Ex: The Muslims believe in the same ethic codes as Christians bible codes.

Muslims, people who belong to the religion Islam, the religion of peace. Good, smiley people that will help you out any time, doesnt turn our back on ya cause we fear God (Allah's) wrath. Doesnt descriminate people for race nor religion, tolerent, kind people. Unfortunately Muslims have been portrayed anything but good folk, but they are good folk.
A whole bunch of students studying for their exams. Girl with long Head scarfe comes in the group of freinds and they welcome her, and one guy asks for her help, she helps him.

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"

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').

a follower of the religion of Islam. They worship God and follow the Ten Commandments just like Christians and Jews do. It's just another religion: you got your true practioners and believers, and you got your hypocritefanatics who are always trying to spoil the party. True Islam is not what you see on TV. Terrorism is against the teachings of the faith.
I knew a few Muslim women in college and they did not wear flowing robes or burquas or any of that stereotypical getup. I've talked to some Muslim men there too and there was none of that "kill the infidels" shit. I also once went to a mosque in northern Ohio and talked to some of the parishioners. They were decent, ordinary, American people. They spoke respect and admiration for Christianity and Judaism, the other two major "God" faiths. They were very nice to me, and I was never scared.

One who sincerely embraces the religion of Islam and is free from hypocrisy. A Muslim tries to worship God by following the teachings He has revealed to all of mankind, and worships Him. There are nearly 1.2 billion Muslims in the world today. They are of all different racial and ethnic backgrounds including Arab, Asian, African, African-American, and Caucasian.
Also..Muslims respect and revere Jesus. They consider him one of the greatest of God's prophets and messengers to humankind. A Muslim never refers to him simply as "Jesus", but always adds the phrase "upon him be peace."

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:
