Welcome to Islam

What is Islam?    
Islam is not a new religion, but the same truth that God revealed through all his Prophets to every people. For a fifth of the world’s population, Islam is both, a religion and a complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the majority has nothing to do with the extremely grave events that have been associated with their faith.
      What does ‘Islam’ mean?    
The Arabic world ‘Islam’ simply means ‘submission’, and derives from a word meaning ‘peace’. In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of God.

‘Mohammedanism ‘is thus a misnomer because it suggests that Muslims worship Muhammad (peace be upon him) rather than God. ‘Allah’ is the Arabic name for God, which is used by Arab Muslims and Christians alike.
      Why does Islam often seem strange?    
Islam may seem exotic or even extreme in the modern world. Perhaps this is because religion does not dominate every day life in the west today, whereas Muslims have religion always uppermost in their minds, and make no division between secular and sacred. They believe that the divine law, the Shari’a, should be taken very seriously, which is why issues related to religion are still so important.
      Who are the Muslims?    
One billion people from a vast range of race, nationalities and cultures across the globe - from the southern Philippines to Nigeria-are united by their common Islamic faith. About 18% live in the Arab world; the world’s largest Muslim community is in Indonesia; substantial part of Asia and most of Africa are Muslim, while significant minorities are to be found in the Soviet Union, China, North and South America, and Europe.

      What do Muslims believe?    
Muslim believe in one, unique, incomparable God; in the angles created by Him; in the Prophets through whom His revelations were brought to mankind; in the day of judgement and individual accountability for actions; in God’s complete authority over human destiny and in life after death. Muslims believe in a chain of Prophets starting with Adam and including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Elias, Jonah, John the Baptist, and Jesus, peace be upon them. But God’s final message to man, reconfirmation of the eternal message and a summing-up of all that has gone before was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through Gabriel.
      How does some one become a Muslim?    
Simply by declaring ‘there is no God apart from God, and Muhammad is the messenger of God’. By this declaration the believer announces his or her faith in all God’s messengers, and the scriptures they brought.

Muslims don`t look islam as a normal religion, but as a whole system of Life, which gives all answers about this life and hereafter. many people don`t think how they came to this life and what is waiting them after death. they just do not want to think about their death although they must meet it....... The followers of other religions have no decisive proof for their belief, therefore they believe in their religions emotionally or through imitation. Some of them think that you just have to have faith without clear proof. However when it comes to normal things in life people apply a lot of thought such as buying a car, house, choosing a University course or which bank to join, so how can it be that when it comes to the most important questions about life; which define the purpose of our lives that we should just have 'faith' without being convinced absolutely. It is therefore vital for a Muslim to believe in the existence of Allah (swt) without any doubt whatsoever and to believe in the Prophethood of Muhammad (saw) and that the Qur'an is the final revelation sent by Allah (swt) to humanity. Islam is unlike all the other religions as it has a decisive proof that convinces the mind.
