The word Muslim is an arabic word which translates to English literally as "One who has submitted " or "One who makes peace" and which religiously means "One who has submitted to the Will of God in peace".

It is the religion of the angels and of the prophets and of the believers.

Jesus (peace be upon him) taught the believer to say " Thine WILL be done, on earth as it is in heaven" and said "Blessed be the Peacemakers for they will be known as the servants of God"

This summarizes religious law on earth, together with correct belief and methods of worship.

Muhammed (peace be upon him) said "I am the final brick..." in a house built by all the previous prophets.
King James Bible/Mathew:

Jesus orders the believers (they didn't call themselves christians but peacemakers - in arabic "muslim") to pray like him in the garden of Gethsamene where Jesus would stand, bow, and prostrate his head on the ground while uttering specific words of praise that had been revealed for this usage by God.

Get a Muslim mug for your guy Zora.
a follower of the religion of Islam. They worship God and follow the Ten Commandments just like Christians and Jews do. It's just another religion: you got your true practioners and believers, and you got your hypocritefanatics who are always trying to spoil the party. True Islam is not what you see on TV. Terrorism is against the teachings of the faith.
I knew a few Muslim women in college and they did not wear flowing robes or burquas or any of that stereotypical getup. I've talked to some Muslim men there too and there was none of that "kill the infidels" shit. I also once went to a mosque in northern Ohio and talked to some of the parishioners. They were decent, ordinary, American people. They spoke respect and admiration for Christianity and Judaism, the other two major "God" faiths. They were very nice to me, and I was never scared.

A religion of peace that is gravely misunderstood by non-muslims and muslims (extremists) alike.
Muslim: It is okay to blow up people if they are infidels.

Non-muslim: The muslims all want tp kill us.

An extremely misunderstood religious group of people. Most people only think of them as bad people. Many assume if you are this you are automatically a terrorist which is only ignorance. In reality most Muslims are not violent. The women are beautiful & they have a rich culture. Most people cannot see the true beauty of muslim people because the truth is clouded by bad attention from the media.
Guy: "Oh he looks like a Muslim, we better get out of here!"

Freind: "Relax, I know that guy from back in the day, he's really cool. Just because some people are Muslims doesn't mean they are bad people!"

Someone who follows the religion of Islam. Due to the actions of Islamic extremists in the past few years they are often stereotyped as terrorists. Most Muslims are peaceful people. Many forms of Islam are strict which is why Muslims dress in certain ways and do not eat things. They believe that their holy book the Qumran is the absolute teachings of God, who they call Allah. They believe that this message was received by the prophet Muhammad. Much like the bible, the Qumran encourages strict punishments to sinners and those who do not worship in the way they consider to be correct. Most Muslims do not act on these beliefs. A very small minority believe in the process of Jihad, which involves forcefully converting non-Muslims to Islam. Groups such as Al-Qaeda believe in this and have come to be seen as the stereotypical terrorists. A popular phrase is that most or all terrorists are Muslim, which is quite untrue. Many terrorists are Christians and other religions. Muslims believe in the rule of God over the rule of man, so many Islamic countries are led by royal families or religious leaders, and dictators. Another belief of Muslims is that the prophet Muhammad should never be depicted. Incidents in which this has happened have resulted in an uproar in the Muslim community, just as anti-Christian acts have caused protests in religiously conservative areas.
People who believe that Muslims are all terrorists have probably never met a Muslim.
Racist Idiot: All Muslims are terrorists. They should be arrested.

Other Guy: Have you ever met a Muslim?

Racist Idiot: No.

Other Guy: Exactly.
