Islam is the religion that is based on the belief that there is only one God to which everything worships, and that Mohammad (peace be upon him) is His prophet and messenger. Islam is the religion of peace which millions of people experience on a daily basis with the will of God.
The Arabic word for God is Allah, Who is the same God that the religion of Christianity and Judaism believe in and worship. Basically, God = Allah, so don’t be confused by the difference in the language since Allah is still Allah when you call Allah God.
People who believe in the Islamic belief and accept Islam as the religion of Allah are called Muslims, which you may have heard before. Linguistically speaking, someone is Muslim if they follow the religion of Islam, the same way a Christian is Christian if they follow Christianity.
Islam, as a religion, is our guide from God, teaching us about everything that concerns our livelihood and how we should live and worship Him.
Muslims follow the way that Allah (All Glory be to Him) has revealed to us and prescribed for us to follow. That way is the best way for us, benefiting us in this life and in the after.
And that way is mostly through the Holy Quran which is Allah’s holy words directly revealed to us through the prophet Mohammed, peace be upon him. That was the prophet Mohammad’s miracle as a prophet, peace be upon him.
The Quran has never been and will never be corrupted because it is the ultimate truth. That is the miracle of the Holy Quran.
