What Is Islam?


Recommended Posts

The Arabic word ‘Islam’ simply means ‘submission’, and derives from the Arabic root ‘Salema’, meaning ‘Peace’. In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of God.

God Almighty has chosen His Prophets and they have come to this world enjoining righteous conduct and preaching of worshiping One God. After corruptions within Holy Scriptures and mankind, God Almighty has sent the Last Prophet, Muhammad (PBUH), to the whole of mankind to preach that there is only one religion acceptable to God – Islam.


‘The Religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His will)’ Quran: 3:19


Islam is the religion whereby we recognize God’s absolute authority, and reach an unshakable conviction that God alone possesses all power; no other entity possesses any power like Him. The natural result of such a realization is to devote our lives and our worship absolutely to God alone.

This is the First Commandment in all the scriptures, including the Old Testament, the New Testament, and the Quran.

The Quran is believed by Muslims as God’s final Message to humanity.
