So what’s with you Moz-lemsand Izzlam?
Thanks for asking, wehave much to   share.
Like Wsup?
Well we have   a lot incommon with    you.
Our God, is the same God of the Jews and   Christians. In Arabic we  just call him     Allah.
Yeah, I heard   of him, itswhat you guys chant, when   you’re all  excited andgonna do Jihad    Allah-u-   Akbbbar!
Muslims are the followers of Islam and we believe in  all the Prophets   like Moses andJesus, Peace be On        them.
What’s with the   Peace?
Islam meanssubmission to the will of God, andone of its results is      Peace.

Say What Korran.That like your Bible  or something?
Kind of, it’s whatMuslims believe isthe final revelation   given to the      Prophet   Muhammad.

Being Muslim    starts with  declaring thatthere’s no God but     Allah andMuhammad is His     Prophet.
What Else?
It’s about encouraging the     good andforbidding the evil.
So if you forbid evil, why are you  guys always so       angry,demonstrating and    blowing up      people?
