1) "Islam" means "surrender" or "submission". "Salam" (which means "peace") is the root word of "Islam". In a religious context the word "Islam" means "the surrendering of one's will (without compulsion) to the true will of God in an effort to achieve peace".

2) "Muslim" means "anyone or anything that surrenders itself to the true will of God". By this definition, everything in nature (trees, animals, planets, etc.) are "muslims" because they are in a state of surrender to God's will. In other words, they are fulfilling the purpose for which God created them.

3) Islam is not a new religion or cult. It is a universal way of life and civilization. Studies show that between 1.5 and 1.8 billion people in the world identify their religion as Islam. Along with Judaism and Christianity it traces its roots through Prophet Abraham and back to the first humans Adam and Eve.

4) There are five pillars of practice in Islam. These practices must be undertaken with the best of effort in order to be considered a true Muslim: A) Declaration of faith in One God and that Muhammad is a prophet of God. B) Formal prayer five times a day. C) Poor-due "tax" - 2.5% of one's excess wealth given to the needy once a year. D) Pilgrimage to Mecca at least once, if physically and financially able. E) Fasting during the daylight hours in the month of Ramadan.

5) There are six articles of faith in Islam. These are the basic beliefs that one must have in order to be considered a true Muslim. They are belief in: A) the One God. B) all of the true prophets of God. C) the original scriptures revealed to Moses, David, Jesus and Muhammad. D) the angels. E) the Day of Judgment and the Hereafter. F) destiny.

6) Islam is a complete way of life that governs all facets of life: moral, spiritual, physical, intellectual, social, economical, etc.

7) Islam is one of the fastest growing religions in the world. To become Muslim, a person of any race or culture must say a simple statement, the shahadah, that bears witness to the belief in the One God and that Muhammad is a prophet of God.

8) "Allah" is an Arabic word that means "God". Muslims also believe that "Allah" is the personal name of God.

9) Allah is not the God of Muslims only. He is the God of all people and all creation. Just because people refer to God using different terms does not mean there are different gods. Many Hispanics refer to God as "Dios" and many French refer to God as "Dieu" yet they mean the same God. Many Arab Jews and Arab Christians call God "Allah" and the word "Allah" (in Arabic script) appears on the walls of many Arab churches and on the pages of Arabic Bibles. Although the understanding of God may differ between the various faith groups, it does not change the fact that the One Lord and Creator of the Universe is the God of all people.

10) The Islamic concept of God is that He is loving, merciful and compassionate. Islam also teaches that He is all-knowing and the perfect judge of affairs, and will punish (or forgive) accordingly. However, Allah once said to Muhammad, “My mercy prevails over my wrath”. So Islam teaches a balance between fear and hope, protecting one from both complacency and despair.

11) Muslims believe that God has revealed 99 of His names, or attributes, in the Qur'an. It is through these names that one can come to know the Creator. A few of these names are the All-Merciful, the All-Knower, the Protector, the Provider, the Near, the First, the Last, the Hidden and the Source of All Peace.

12) The Christian concept of "vicarious atonement" (the idea that Jesus died for the sins of humanity) is alien to the Islamic concept of personal responsibility. Islam teaches that on the Day of Judgment every person will be resurrected and will be accountable to God for their every word and deed. Consequently, a practicing Muslim is always striving to be righteous while hoping and praying for God's acceptance and grace.

13) Muslims believe in all of the true prophets that preceded Muhammad, from Adam to Jesus. Muslims believe they brought the same message of voluntarily surrendering to God's will (islam, in a generic sense) to different peoples at different times. Muslims also believe they were "muslims" (again, in a generic sense) since they followed God's true guidance and surrendered their will to Him.

14) Muslims neither worship Muhammad nor pray through him. Muslims solely worship the Unseen and Omniscient Creator, Allah.

15) Muslims accept the original unaltered Torah (as revealed to Moses) and the original unaltered Bible (as revealed to Jesus) since they were revealed by God. But none of these scriptures exist today in their original form or in their entirety. Therefore, Muslims follow the subsequent, final and preserved revelation of God, the Qur'an.

16) The Qur'an was not authored by Muhammad. It was authored by God, revealed to Muhammad (through angel Gabriel) and written into physical form by his companions.

17) The original Arabic text of the Qur'an contains no flaws or contradictions, and has not been altered since its revelation.

18) Actual 7th century Qur'ans, complete and intact, are on display in museums in Turkey and other places around the world.

19) If all Qur'ans in the world today were destroyed, the original Arabic would still remain. This is because millions of Muslims, called "hafiz" (or "guardians") have memorized the text letter for letter from beginning to end, every word and every syllable. Also, chapters from the Qur'an are precisely recited from memory in each of the five formal prayers performed daily by hundreds of millions of Muslims throughout the world.

20) Some attribute the early and rapid spread of Islam to forced conversions by the sword. While it is accurate that the Muslim empire initially spread, for the most part, through battles and conquests (a common phenomenon for that time) the religion of Islam itself was never forced on anyone who found themselves living under Muslim rule. In fact, non-Muslims were afforded the right to worship as they pleased as long as a tax, called "jizyah", was paid. During the Dark Ages, Jews, Christians and others were given protection by the Muslims from religious persecutions happening in Europe. Islam teaches no compulsion in religion (Qur'an 2:256 and 10:99). For more, read "The Spread of Islam in the World" by Thomas Arnold.

21) Terrorism, unjustified violence and the killing of non-combatant civilians (or even intimidating, threatening or injuring them) are all absolutely forbidden in Islam. Islam is a way of life that is meant to bring peace to a society whether its people are Muslim or not. The extreme actions of those who claim to be Muslim may be a result of their ignorance, frustration, uncontrolled anger or political (not religious) ambitions. Anyone who condones or commits an act of terrorism in the name of Islam is simply not following Islam and is, in fact, violating its very tenets. These people are individuals with their own personal views and agendas. Fanatical Muslims are no more representative of the true teachings of Islam than fanatical Christians are of the true teachings of Christianity or fanatical Jews are of the true teachings of Judaism. The most prominent examples of such “religious” fanatics are Anders Behring Breivik, the 2011 Norwegian terrorist who claimed in his manifesto to be “100 percent Christian” and Baruch Goldstein, perpetrator of the 1994 Hebron massacre who is considered by some Jews to be a “hero” and a “saint”. Extremism and fanaticism are problems not exclusive to Muslims. Anyone who thinks that all Muslims are terrorists should note that terror groups like ISIS (or ISIL), Al-Qaeda and Boko Haram kill Muslims as well. Also, the former boxer Muhammad Ali, perhaps the most celebrated person of our era, is a practicing Muslim.

22) The word "jihad" does not mean "holy war". It actually means "to struggle" or "to strive". In a religious context it means the struggle to successfully surrender one's will to the will of God. Some Muslims may say they are going for "jihad" when fighting in a war to defend themselves or others, but they say this because they are conceding that it will be a tremendous struggle. But there are many other forms of jihad which are much more relevant to the everyday life of a Muslim such as the struggles against laziness, arrogance, stinginess, one's own ego, or the struggle against a tyrant ruler or against the temptations of Satan, etc. Regarding the so-called verses of "holy war" in the Qur'an, two points: A) The term "holy war" neither appears in the Arabic text of the Qur'an nor in any classical teachings of Islam. B) The vast majority of verses in the Qur'an pertaining to violence refer to wartime situations in which Muslims were permitted to defend themselves against violent aggression. Any rational, intellectual analysis of the context and historical circumstances surrounding such verses, often ignored by pundits or violent extremists, proves this to be true. Other verses of violence deal with stopping oppression, capital punishment and the like.

23) Women are not oppressed in Islam. Any Muslim man that oppresses a woman is not following Islam. Among the many teachings of Muhammad that protected the rights and dignity of women is his saying, "...the best among you are those who treat their wives well."

24) Islam grants women many rights in the home and in society. Among them are the right to earn money, to financial support, to own property, to an education, to an inheritance, to being treated kindly, to vote, to a bridal gift, to keep their maiden name, to worship in a mosque, to a divorce, and so on.

25) Muslim women wear the head-covering (hijab) in fulfillment of God's decree to dress modestly. This type of modest dress has been worn by religious women throughout time such as traditional Catholic nuns, Mother Teresa and the Virgin Mary.

26) Forced marriages, honor killings, female genital mutilation and the confinement of women to their homes are all forbidden in Islam. These practices stem from deeply entrenched cultural traditions and/or ignorance of the true Islamic teachings or how to apply them in society. Arranged marriages are allowed in Islam but are not required. In fact, one of the conditions for a valid Islamic marriage contract is the mutual consent of both parties to the marriage. And divorce is permissible provided the Islamic guidelines are followed which protect the rights of all affected parties, especially women and unborn children.

27) Islam and the Nation "of Islam" are two different religions. Islam is a religion for all races and enjoins the worship of the One Unseen God who never took human form. On the other hand "the Nation" is a movement geared towards non-whites that teaches God appeared as a man named Fard Muhammad and that Elijah Muhammad was a prophet. According to orthodox Islam these are blasphemous beliefs that contradict the basic theology defined throughout the Qur'an and other authentic texts. The followers of "the Nation" adhere to some Islamic principles that are mixed with other practices and beliefs completely alien to authentic Islamic teachings. To better understand the differences read about Malcolm X, his pilgrimage to Mecca and his subsequent comments to the media. Islam teaches equality amongst the races (Qur'an 49:13).

28) All Muslims are not Arab, Middle-Eastern or of African descent. Islam is a universal religion and way of life that includes followers from all races. There are Muslims in and from virtually every country in the world. Arabs only constitute about 20% of Muslims worldwide. The countries with the largest Muslim populations are not located in the Middle East. They are Indonesia (over 200 million Muslims) and Pakistan and India (over 350 million Muslims combined).

29) In the five daily prayers Muslims face the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. It is a cube-shaped stone structure that was built by Prophet Abraham and his son Ishmael on the same foundations where Prophet Adam is believed to have built a sanctuary for the worship of the One God. Muslims do not worship the Kaaba. It serves as a focal point for Muslims around the world, unifying them in worship and symbolizing their common belief, spiritual focus and direction. Interestingly the inside of the Kaaba is empty.

30) The hajj is an annual pilgrimage to the Kaaba made by about 3 million Muslims from all corners of the Earth. It is performed to fulfill one of the pillars of Islam. The rituals of hajj commemorate the struggles of Abraham, his wife Hagar and their son Ishmael in surrendering their wills to God.

Abraham was not married to Hagar.He was married to Sara,and there son was the promise of God Isaac.Ishmel was not the promise and was concived by Sara’s handmaiden.

LunarHart

Thank you, someone finally pointing out what I was thinking and wanting to say.
Also Like you said Ishmael was conceived by Sara’s female slave which was Hagar. Bc Sara couldn’t have children and didn’t believe God when he promised Abraham he would be a father of many nations as many as the stars in the sky, and became inpatient and gave Abraham her female Hagar so Sara and Abraham could build a family thru Hagar. But God had promise ld that “SARA” Would become pregnant with a son named Issac because Sara laughed when God messenger told she would have a son in their very old age. Then Sara saw Ishmael making fun of Isaac and made Abraham send Ishmael and his mother away. So God told Abraham not to worry about Ishmael. Bc Ishmael will become a great leader too. But Issac will make u a father of many nations. So Abraham sent them on their way. So Isaac was the son that God promise Abraham and Sara.

First of it is well writen. I really appreciate that this writting has given me a good understandig about the Islam.

But, this might be true only in the writting format. But when you consider the reality and the happening and practices of the Muslim community at the Pudupattinam Area, Kalpakkam-603102, India. The local Muslim community in this area is practising exactly opposite what was said by you above. I have lived in Kalapkkam for nearly about 30 years.

Kindly do somthing to rectify this.

“If it doesn’t move the meter, it doesn’t move the media”. In other words, there are plenty of Muslims who do condemn and fight against terrorism, but that’s comparatively boring. The media will highlight and give much more coverage to any act (or threat) of terror than it’s condemnation.

#20 the Jihad is part of the Qur’an, and Muslims are to follow the Qur’an word by word, while not every Muslim goes that far, it is in nature of Islam the call for Violence and Intolerance on these so called infidels,because not everything Muslim follows this section doesn’t mean it isn’t part of the religion, and you can’t pretend it isn’t because it is, you cannot change the Qur’an, you can only try to persuade it’s lowest interpretation, but you can’t persuade that on every Muslim, the Qur’an calls on all Muslims to raise against the infidels, does it not?.

Talha

yes jihad is an important part we do it everyday, every muslim does, it means ” to struggle in the way of Allah” and yes we follow every part and everysection of the holy book in its correct interpretations. The ayah’s that you guys would usually quote have a certain scenario revolving around them that one needs to study before coming to a conclusion. Just quoting an ayah out of context to get to your means is wrong. The violence we see in muslim countries in these days isn’t the result of them following islam, its the result of years of war, poverty and illiteracy that is fundamentally an armed rebellion.

ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION…….

It is very wrong to say “islam” is Religion. Islam was started by a single person and after that few other fellows started to follow the earlier fellow due to many unkown reasons. But the main reason it seems the fear – fear for life. First of all Religion should have some basics and fundamental idea of the Universe, celestial bodies, our Mother Earth and all the living beings, etc. What kind fundas this so called islam has. From No.28 it is agreed that only 20% are arabs and others are forcebly converted to islam. The so called arabs are all foolish people they have not contributed even today to the existing science and technology of the world but they are thorughly enjoing the fruits of the developments in science and technology developed by the Europeans and Indians. Of course there is always few exceptions like Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam from India, Dr. Abdus Salam from Bangaldesh, etc. These great people were only born as muslims and their fore fathers were forcebly converted to follow the bulshit rules of islamists.

Again if I come back to the very basic point of any religion is to respect the rightiousness of the other living beings in the Mother Earth and pracatice dharma, eliminate adharma and fianally attain salvation. At present only terrorists are controlling the so called islamic communities and cultivating adharma in the whole world. Poor and forcebly converted mulims are the maximum sufferers and they do not what to do in this world and do not know the escape route to escape from the branded islam name forcebly attached with them from their fore fathers.

There are many things to write to disuade the poor muslim community to completely the brutual muslim practice which are anyway no use to present world……….Kaniyavan

I found what I read about Muslim religion to be very different from what I believed it to be. Interestingly, I work and live among Muslim followers now for a little more than two years. For the first time, I am understanding the religion to be much like that of my own Christian religion. The concept of what is out there as for information is by mostly the extremists of the Muslim religion and not the norm at all. To really understand it more, please ask google to give you facts and examples like I just read before stating anything here. The Muslim problems that we encounter is because of extremists, not True Muslims.

jarhead4God…. Yes, if you’re watching Muslims on TV and the mainstream media it will seem like most of them are extremists. But the reality on the ground is far different. Extremists capture the headlines for obvious reasons and, unfortunately, that’s what people remember and associate with true Islam if it’s not balanced with AUTHENTIC knowledge and/or REAL WORLD and COMPREHENSIVE experiences with the Muslim COMMUNITY.

please do not deceit innocent people who are honest and naïve. Tell the truth. look at the Islamic world. Their fruits speak for itself. All these lies presented in the article do not translate to how Muslims in their countries behave(they behave very differently in the west since they are not a majority yet); bad treatment of women, injustice to minorities, deep seated hate and discrimination for people from other religions, force their religion on you, kill you if you convert from Islam to another religion, justify atrocities and injustice committed against non Muslims,……
is there on church in Saudi Arabia? Can a woman drive in Saudi Arabia? Can an adult woman travel without the permission of her male guardian? The answer to all these questions is NO.
Slavery is allowed in Islam. What ISIS is doing now in the middle east is exactly what Mohamed and his followers had done earlier . That is how Islam spread outside Arabia. That is the reason why ISIS is getting support from all young people from all over the world who start to read the Quran and Sunnah ( Mohammad biography and his life story) in order to learn their religion properly. They do not need any mentors to get them radicalized. The Quraan and Sunnah are enough. They just need an initiator to trigger them to read and know their religion better.

Islam is a fascist and non democratic religion that aims to take over the world. Simple as that. Europe and the rest of the world should all ban Islam. “Not everyone is like that…” That is just BS. If you have Islam as your religion, then you are a full believer. There is no middle ground according to Islam. Look at Saudi Arabia and the Sharia laws. Seriously?

Good attempt to perpetuate the myth of the moderate Muslim. The barbaric, archaic and grotesque practices in points 21-25 described as being against Islam, are the typical behaviour and views of Muslims. Several Islamic Nations such as Saudi Arabia have the death penalty for those who reject Islam. On the contrary to what this article claims, it is impossible to be a Muslim and not have these sick views. Comparing examples of extremists from other religions is laughable. No other religion has caused so much harm upon humanity. Islam is a racist ideology that aims to commit mass genocide to all others.

I do love how most pro-Islam websites will carefully neglect to mention Sharia(h) though. Read the Holy Book, decide for yourself. Too much faith in others is akin to having no faith at all.

Thanks Doctor for explaining the weaknesses of Muslims in the west which made me think deeply about it. knowing that most of immigrant come from poor areas and also some are illiterate as a result of colonialism or oppression from their government after the independence. However, it is our responsibility for thinkers philosophers and communities to work together to address this issues using this beautiful prove: listen to people who advise you dialogue with people who think different learn from criticism analyse and love your enemy to reform our heart, renew our understanding and revive our thinking.

Only want the truth. I always greet Muslims respectfully and have never met one who was not a polite individual. I wish people would live by rationality , but it seems there is an inborn need for many humans to desire the supernatural. To me it doesn’t matter as long is ” the truth is the truth”

People- I beg you to not listen to this white-washed , incomplete narrative, of Islam. This author says nothing about Sharia Law, of which, Muslim fundamentalism is believed and practiced. It doesn’t mention the section(s) of the Quran that talks about the infidels and why they should be killed in the name of Allah. No, this is not a religion of peace as it is claimed It fits all the definitions of a cult, as as such, should be wipred from the face of the earth! Don’t drink this Kool Aid-it’s poison!

You see!! All you need to do is learn more about Islam not just by watching the news, but by reading books, visit more website, watch more Muslim’s in their daily activities, visit more more places where Muslim’s are based and remember humans are not perfect, just like the Author making a mistake or you getting something when you are making plans (typical example is when sometimes you are making a call on your cell then you are trying to look for the cell on your table). Just a heads up though should you meet people who have different believe don’t argue with them bcos we all have the right to believe what we want..

Mohammed was a liar and a false prophet. Why even tax other religions? This is intolerance. Islam has been forced on so many. Many want to convert and are not allowed. It’s still no coincidence that there are so many killing in the name of Islam.

Alhamdulillah this appears to be very accurate. Allah Knows Best. Been learning Arabic and Translations of Quran differ considerably. Now consult atleast 5 or 6 in addition to learning Arabic and root words. One must not follow anything without understanding and understanding comes with believing, research, knowledge and pondering deeply. Allah Makes it easy by His Mercy as only He can Guide whom He Wills. Sadly there is a lot of misinterpretation on internet and the media nowadays so ignorance follows but truth and wisdom is what everyone should strive to achieve to achieve peace. In sha Allah.

This is a very good explanation of Islam. If any non-believers read this, this is the true meaning of Islam.

Aslam-O-Alaikam,
Thank you for the article very informative article. I researched Islam very thoroughly. Most Muslims do not practice true Islam.
Although Quran CAN NEVER be corrupted but Usurp Muslim rulers paid money to write Hadiths against Islam and Prophet Muhammad to justify their illegal UnIslamic deeds. Sunni Caliph Started this and his successors continued this. Now most Muslims follow corrupt hadiths more than Quran.
I remember a debate between Ahmed Deedat and a Christian leader. Ahmed Deedat pointed a verse from Bible. The Christian leader pulled out his copy of the bible and told to the audience that the verse is not in the bible and Ahmed Deedat is lying. Ahmed Deedat pulled out his copy of the bible and showed the verse. Moderator checked both books. Ahmed Deedat had 5th edition while the Christian leader had 6th edition. In between 5th and 6th edition they removed that verse from the bible. It is going on with Muslim Hadiths for last 1400 years. Many Hadiths quoted by scholars of 8th -10th centuries with reference from Sunni Sahih books are not in modern day Hadith books. All Hadith books write in their preface that most Hadith against Ali were forged by Umayyad rulers and were not true. So they did not include in their books. But the compilers of Hadith books were not infallible. They still have many Hadiths in so called Sahih Hadith books against Islam and Prophet Muhammad.
2- Although every Non Muslim has to pay Jizya for their protection. But it is less than the tax ( Khums) a Muslim has to pay. Khums is as compulsory as Zikaat. But Quran mentions that Kums must be paid to the family of Prophet Muhammad. So Usurp Muslim rulers translated Ghanimtum” ( غَنِمْتُمْ)as WAR BOOTY. Word . Actual meaning of this word is Windfall profit. If Muslims were giving Khums then Non Muslims could not complain because Khums is more than Jizya.
2- There are more than 1000 names of Allah and even 1000 names can not explain Allah. To know 1000 names of Allah read Dua Joshan-Kabeer and Dua Mashlool. Abu Hurera quoted the hadith of 99 names which is not true Hadith.

So…..God spoke to Mohammed through the Sky fairy Gabriel, up a mountain, where there was no one else around? A scripture was written, grammatically correct (even though Mohammed was illiterate) and this Scripture is the LAST word and will of God? No other gods or religions that follow after are to be tolerated.
This is what makes Islam in particular a very dangerous religion. This alone gives free reign to the fanatical Islamists to create havoc with impunity.

Do yourself, your family and society a favour and go read some science books. Lets stop teaching our young this religious rubbish (religion being created thousands of years ago to CONTROL the masses by a small number of slightly less stupid people) The sooner we stop teaching ALL religion to our young and the sooner we start to look at the FACTS of life, the sooner the senseless killings will stop.

“Islam is full of peace, don’t judge a religion but you can judge a person”
Another statement which shows how dangerous religion is.
Why should we not judge a religion?
What does not judging religion do apart from allow religious psychopaths the free reign to do what they want? Oh I know. It allows you to view all the senseless killings, the oppression, the brainwashing and fear, without the guilt that should flow through your body as all of these atrocities are committed in the name of RELIGION, the concept in which you partake.
