the religion founded by their prophet muhammed .
the precise definition of the word means "total submission" (to god) .
a person of that faith is called a "muslim" , which means "one who submitts" .
back in the earlier times, the religion was known as "the faith of muhammed" , and the followers were called "muhammedins"
the muslims believe that god spoke to their prophet muhammed and told him the way to heaven and the way to live by his name, and to spread his words. he was illiterate , so another man wrote down everything that he said, and the holy book of the quaran was made. they believe in most of the main prophets that the jews and christians believe in, some of them include moses, abraham, david, mary, joseph, paul, john the baptist & the disciples of jesus. they believe in jesus as a prophet , but not as christ or son of god, but as a messenger of god. in the qua'ran jesus is the second highest prophet next to muhammed. muhammed is also their last prophet, there are no more prophets after him.
islam is the faith of the followers of muhammmed
