Islam is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion teaching that there is only one God (Allah)and that Muhammad is the messenger of God. It is the world's second-largest religion and the fastest-growing major religion in the world,with over 1.8 billion followers or 24.1% of the global population,known as Muslims.9 Muslims make up a majority of the population in 50 countries. Islam teaches that God is merciful, all-powerful, unique and has guided mankind through prophets, revealed scriptures and natural signs. The primary scriptures of Islam are the Quran, viewed by Muslims as the verbatim word of God, and the teachings and normative example (called the sunnah, composed of accounts called hadith) of Muhammad (c. 570–8 June 632 CE).

Muslims believe that Islam is the complete and universal version of a primordial faith that was revealed many times before through prophets including Adam, Abraham, Moses and Jesus. As for the Quran, Muslims consider it to be the unaltered and final revelation of God.Like other Abrahamic religions, Islam also teaches a final judgment with the righteous rewarded paradise and unrighteous punished in hell.Religious concepts and practices include the Five Pillars of Islam, which are obligatory acts of worship, and following Islamic law (sharia), which touches on virtually every aspect of life and society, from banking and welfare to women and the environment.The cities of Mecca, Medina and Jerusalem are home to the three holiest sites in Islam.

The name Islam actually comes from the Arabic word salam, which means peace. Islam is a religion of peace, but some do not see it as that. Remember, Islam is perfect but humans aren’t perfect. The people out there that are destroying Islam’s name are not at all representions of the ideal muslim. Islam does not support what they are doing. Also, Islam does not objectify nor oppress women. Islam says that when a girl is a daughter, she opens the gate of heaven to her father. When she is a wife, she completes half of her husband’s religion. When she is a mother, heaven lies under her feet. Islam is a beautiful religion, if you just knew.
Islam is one of the main religions in the world.

Islam means submission to God. God translated in the Arabic language is "Allah". This religion is a peaceful religion but not a pacifist religion. It is a religion that is practical. Verses in the Quran that people take out of context make it look like the whole religion is evil. Yes there is war in Islam but it is not just to spread violence. It is usually used fir self defense. God also prohibits Muslims in war to hurt women, children, the elderly, or even a tree, yes even a tree.

Islam does not preach to hate all non Muslims. Prophet muhammed in fact allowed traveling Christians to spend the night and even pray in his mosque before.

There's so much more incidents and facts to prove that Islam is not the violent evil religion people think it is.

Islam is about rationally submitting to God after being convinced Islam is the truth. The Quran is filled with historical, geographical, linguistic, and scientific miracles like the Big Bang.

It's not blind faith. It's based off pure logic and reason and of course faith.
Islam is a religion of logic reason and faith.

A monotheism religion. Holy Book is the Qur'an. Prophet is Muhammad (pbub) is the main prophet. Fast for thirty days. We respect other people's religion yes some have lost the way but other not. You can't judge what you don't know. Judge Isis you know them, or the people that did 9/11, just don't judge the innocent one who don't deserve it. And really are you guys one to judge at all? Is anyone really? You're ancestors raped and murdered and torture and broke apart families and took away land that wasn't theirs and now your gonna judge most people who didn't even do anything. You share blood with the people that ruined Africans and American Indians lives, and we only share religion. We are not the same just as some of you have changed from your ancestors. Just think for a second, you are racist you might say your not but you are. The first thing that come to your mind when someone says terrorist is Muslims. But your 100% wrong. Yes some Muslims are terrorists for reasons that we good Muslims do not understand. They don't follow the rules as the qur'an puts. Next time think about that.
I am Muslim, since my religion is Islam

Islam is one religion that is monotheistic, meaning they belive in one god, Allah. Dispite common beliefs, Allah is the same god as the one as Christianity and Judaism. Their prophet is Muhammad.
Islam is just another religion, and not all if them are terrorists.
