  • Islam, a name given by Allah to this religion (Quran 5:4), is an Arabic word which literally means submission, obedience and peace. ISLAM is derived from the word 'Aslam' and the Arabic root 'SALEMA' that means peace, purity, submission and obedience. So 'Islam' would mean the path of those who are obedient to Allah and who establish peace with Him and His creatures and are fully submitting to His will. Islam follower are called Muslims.
    True Muslims submit to Allah with total devotion and sencerity.

    Islam is not a new religion. It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which Allah (God) revealed to all prophets before Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Allah says in the Qur'ân:
    'Say, `We believe in ALLAH and that which has been revealed to us, and that which was revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and in that which was given to Moses and Jesus and other Prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them and to HIM we submit.' (Qur'ân 3-85)

    After the Prophet Muhammad (S)'s death many desert nomads and others claimed to be prophets, during this time Abu Bakr (R) went to war with these people to prove them as false. After Abu Bakr (R), Umr (R) took over Persia, and other parts of Asia Minor, after many years Tariq bin Ziyad (R) took over Spain and Islam slowly traveled though Europe.

    What is Islam?: The name of the religion is Islam, which comes from an Arabic root word meaning 'peace' and 'submission.' Islam teaches that one can only find peace in one's life by submitting to Almighty God (Allah) in heart, soul and deed. The same Arabic root word gives us 'Salaam alaykum,' ('Peace be with you'), the universal Muslim greeting.
    Who is a Muslim?: A person who believes in and consciously follows Islam is called a Muslim, also from the same root word. So, the religion is called 'Islam,' and a person who believes in and follows it is a 'Muslim.'
