ISLAM
Islam in Arabic means submission to the Allah’s will and obedience of his law. It is a strictly monotheistic religion. God is Allah; he is immortal, omniscient and genderless.
Islam is the final word of God. Although Judaism and Christianity preceded Islam and worship the same God as Islam it is more refined than them in that it is built upon them.
Muhammad is God’s Prophet and received the Quran, which is the Revelation and Miracle form God. His life and teachings are examples on how one is to live his life.
The followers of Islam are called Muslims. There are 1.3 billion Muslims Worldwide; they are not to be confused with Arabs, Persians, Pakistanis, Europeans, Indonesians, Iraqis or other nationalities.
Twelve percent (12%) of the world’s Muslims are Arabs. The US, with five to six million Muslim has the twentieth largest Muslim population. Egypt, not Saudi Arabia has the most populous Arab Muslim nation.
The most populous Muslim nation in the world is Indonesia (over 200 million Muslim). All Muslims are not Arabs and all Arabs are not Muslims.
