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.

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

Widely and commonly misunderstood, Muslims have been dealing with bigoted and ignorant people long before modern events. For the people who gave you Coffee, Hummus, Clocks, Cleanliness, and surgical procedures, they surely are mistaken simply for a culture rather than a religion-when in fact Muslims thrive all around the globe.

A person following the religion of Islam, which is the belief in one God (Allah). Muslims have one prophet (Muhammad) of whom the religions book (the Qur'an) was sent down to. Although Muslims follow one prophet's message, they also believe in numerous other prophets including Jesus.

While most people think that Islam is a radical religion, it is not. For starters, the word itself means "peace" in Arabic. Muslims believe that life should be led peacefully and that the way peace is reached in ones life is by worshiping God in their everyday lives.
There are almost 2 billion Muslims around the world
