A religion about peace in which its followers, Muslims, follow the teachings of God and his last prophet Mohammad. One misconception about Islam and Muslims is that it is a religion of violence in which its followers are to kill, enslave, or convert all non-Muslims which is not true. Many quote passages in the Quran such as
Quran (3:151) - "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with God, for which He had sent no authority".
Quran (2:191-193) - "And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah disbelief is worse than killing...
but if they desist, then lo! God is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah disbelief and worshipping of others along with God and worship is for God alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)"

Despite these passages one must not take the Quran literally, also the Quran was written at a time when Muslims ha to the defend themselves violently. When it says Unbelievers it means Muslims whom do not adhere to the faith of Islam despite having the title. Same goes for infidels and non-believers.

Islam is a religion. The followers of Islam (mostly called Muslims) believe in Allah which is Arabic for God. The name, "Allah", is used in some phrases people think are racist such as, "Allahu akbar" which is supposed to mean, "God is great.". However because of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the sentence is usually frowned upon. Some people think the Muslims support explosions and war, but that is not true. Because of ISIS, some people think Islam is a religion of hate which is not true. In fact, Islam is supposed to be an extremely peaceful religion. Furthermore, Islam strictly forbids the consumption of anything made out of pigs because of the unhealthy traits of pigs and their meat. Also, the Muslims forbid the consumption of alcohol because they thought it was one of the works of Satan himself. However, the Muslims allow the smoking of Hookah because it is neutral, but most Muslims say that those who refrain from doing Hookah will most likely be rewarded. In conclusion, this is Islam.

A religion of peace which follows the teachings of their Prophet Muhammad and their God is known as Allah. Don't confuse Muslims with radical terrorists which kill people and destroy buildings. Those terrorists think they are doing good for their God, but in actual fact, they are mindless and have few understanding for what Islam is. They have misinterpreted the teachings of their Holy Book, the Quran. Read more about them and think for yourself.

Islam is a universalizing Abrahamic monotheistic religion teaching that there is only one God and that Muhammad is a messenger of God .
Al-Islam (Submission) is a religion that believes in one God (Allah).

According to Islamic Tradition, there are five basic things that Muslims should do. They are called "The Five Pillars of Islam":

Tawheed: The Testimony (faith in English) is the core of the Muslim belief that there is no god but Allah himself, and that Muhammad is his last messenger.
Salaat: Muslims pray five times per day, at special times of the day.

Zakaat: Muslims who have money must give 1/40th of their money (charity in English) to help people who do not have money or need help.
Sawm or Siyam: Fasting during Ramadan, the ninth month of the Islamic year. Muslims do not eat or drink from dawn till sunset for one lunar month.

Hajj (Pilgrimage in English): During the month of Zulkaedah, the 12th month of the Islamic Calendar is the pilgrimage season where many Muslims go to Mecca, the holiest city of Islam
Muslims pray in a place of worship called the mosque. A mosque is called a masjid in Arabic.

*Women have a great and honored place in Islam, Quran has a chapter titled "Women" and another chapter titled "Mariam" which is a testament to the importance of women in Quran.

A religion of peace where it’s believers worship only one God. The word Islam means voluntary “Submission” or “Surrender” to the Will of God. It derives from the root word “salam,” meaning peace. In Islam, you do not have to worry about what others think, it frees you from the chains of society.
Person #1 : “ why is Islam such a violent religion?”

Person #2 : “ Hey, don’t believe everything you read in the media. In Islam if you kill an innocent soul it’s as if you’ve killed the whole of humanity. It’s a religion that rewards you just for smiling. So how can it be a religion of hate?”

A religion you need to find good sources to know about. Negative images spreading through social media tells nothing about what Islam accurately is.
Reading about Islam from reliable sources will give you a lot of well grounded materials.
