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.

A believer in Islam which is a monotheistic religion characterized by the acceptance of the doctrine of submission to God. They are unfairly judged by the ignorant individuals in our society who fail to try to understand the religion. It is one of the main religions in the world and based on peace. Like the KKK in Christianity it has small groups like the Taliban that preach extremes that the rest of the followers of the religion dont adhere to.
I cannot judge every American based on one extreme, therefore I would not judge all Muslims based on one extreme.

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

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.

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

Get a Muslim mug for your guy Paul.
someone who believes in God, the angels, the Last Day (aka the day of judgment) who also believes in messengers sent throughout time to different nations, including Jesus, with Mohammad being the final one. They do not attribute divinity to men, although some sects may have questionable pratices, these are innovations and influenced by culture or other sources. For the most part they are seen as a threat to liars or profits, hence why there is alot of negative propoganda surrounding them. Those behind the islamophobic movement harness the power of racist members of society. But, alas, haters gonna hate.
