A Muslim is an adherent of Islam, a monotheistic, Abrahamic religion based on the Quran, which Muslims consider the verbatim word of God as revealed to prophet Muhammad. "Muslim" is the Arabic term for "one who submits to God".
Muslims believe that God is one and incomparable. Muslims also believe that Islam is the complete and universal version of a primordial faith that was revealed at many times and places before, including through the prophets Abraham, Moses and Jesus.
A Muslim is one who believes there is no God but Allah, and Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is his last messenger.

Muslims are people who follow the religion of Islam and worship Allah. They believe Prophet Muhammad as the prophet of Allah and yadi yadi yada. But sadly, Muslims are one of the most stereotyped people ever. They are stereotyped as inhuman barbarians only seeking out to kill, rape, blast and whatever worst things that the media or whatever has to offer. I for a fact know that Muslims back in the 7th-12th century did conquer and bring a lot of place under their control from Spain to India. But tell me any empires that was born through peace and love? None. That doesn't make Islamic empires an exception. Yet even if they conquered a lot of territories, they enhanced knowledge, architecture, philosophies and many other stuffs. But nobody likes to think about that and only think that they conquered and did nothing besides kill and rape. Looking in modern times, media has heavily shoved down to our throats that Muslims = Ruffians, Thugs, Rapist etc. But in reality they are kind hearted. Fuck the media and the internet. I live in a Muslim country(Oman). Surrounding me are Muslims, yet there are no explosions and gunfire as people think. The media idolizes the extreme or radical Muslims who are not true Muslims or are just wannabes who do all the killing and stuff. And most of all, urban dic(k)tionary is no place for knowing the truth about Muslims or Islam. And if you're and anti-Muslim who is going to dislike this definition and think it is wrong, getta a life you fucking biatch.
Ignorant biatch : Hey imagine a world without Muslims, wouldn't it be amazing?
Anti-islamphobe : Yeah I agree. There would be no America, no enlightenment of Europe from the Dark ages, no internet, therefore no urban dictionary and most of all you wouldn't be living like this if you are born in this century in a parallel universe same as ours where Islam never exists. Biatch, stop being ignorant and read history and stop stereotyping all 1.5 billion for a few radicals!!!!

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.

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 follower of the religion Islam which means achieving peace through submitting oneself completely to Allah (God in Arabic). Contrary to popular belief, less than 19% of Muslims are from the Arab world. Muslims come from all over the world, there are Chinese Muslims, American Muslims, African American Muslims, Australian Muslims, Pakistani Muslims, etc...
Shahadah: declaration of faith;" There is no God but God and Muhammad is his messenger"
Salat- Prayer; Muslims pray five times a day in order to reflect on past errors and ask God for Forgiveness for any misdeeds,prayer is a direct dialogue between the worshiper and God
Zakat- charity; involves giving to those in need 2.5 % of one's wealth, redistribution of wealth in society and if applied properly can successfully eliminate poverty, giving beyond the obligatory charity is expected of every Muslim- even meeting another with a smile is considered charity
Sawm- Fasting; fasting from dawn until dusk, during month of Ramadan ( lunar calendar of Muslims), by abstaining from things that are necessary for survival, it is a lot easier to abstain from things that are not necessary for survival such as lying, gossiping, etc...
Hajj- Pilgrimage; once in a lifetime obligation of every Muslim who is physically and financially able, wear simple clothing- white clothing that strips all class and culture, everyone stands equal before God
Person 1: Who is a Muslim?
Person 2: one who submits to God

The word Muslim is an arabic word which translates to English literally as "One who has submitted " or "One who makes peace" and which religiously means "One who has submitted to the Will of God in peace".

It is the religion of the angels and of the prophets and of the believers.

Jesus (peace be upon him) taught the believer to say " Thine WILL be done, on earth as it is in heaven" and said "Blessed be the Peacemakers for they will be known as the servants of God"

This summarizes religious law on earth, together with correct belief and methods of worship.

Muhammed (peace be upon him) said "I am the final brick..." in a house built by all the previous prophets.
King James Bible/Mathew:

Jesus orders the believers (they didn't call themselves christians but peacemakers - in arabic "muslim") to pray like him in the garden of Gethsamene where Jesus would stand, bow, and prostrate his head on the ground while uttering specific words of praise that had been revealed for this usage by God.
