Islam At A Glance

Islam and Muslims

The Arabic word Islam means peace, submission and obedience. The religion of Islam is 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 total reorganization of his life according to His revealed guidance and the sayings zf the Prophet. He also works for building human society on the same basis. "Muhammadanism is a misnomer for Islam and offends its very spirit. The word 'Allah' is the proper name of God in Arabic. It is a unique term because it has no plural or feminine gender.

Continuity of Message

Islam is not a new religion. It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which Allah revealed to all Prophets:

"Say. we believe in Allah and that which has been revealed to us, and that which was revealed to Abraham and Ismael and Issac and Jacob and the tribes and that which was given to Moses and Jesus and to other Prophets, from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to Him we submit". (Qura'n 3:83).

The message which was revealed to Prophet Muhammed (PBUH), the last Prophet in Islam in its comprehensive, complete and final form.
