Islam and Muslims

The Arabic word “Islam” means peace, submission, and obedience. The religion of Islam consists of the complete acceptance of the
teachings and guidance of God as revealed to His Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

A Muslim is one who believes in God and strives for the total reorganization of one’s life according to the guidance revealed by God-the Qur’an-and sayings of the Prophet.
A Muslim also works to create a human society on the same basis. “Muhammadanism” is a misnomer for Islam and offends its very spirit, for it implies that Muslims have deified and worship Muhammad, as the Christians did with Jesus Christ. This practice is condemned in the Qur’an and is totally foreign to the Islamic belief structure.

The word “Allah” is the proper name of God in Arabic. It is a unique term and has no plural or feminine forms.
