About Islam

The word Islam means "submission",
or the total surrender of oneself to God (Arabic: الله, Allāh).
An adherent of Islam is known as a Muslim, meaning

"one who submits (to God)(Arabic: الله, Allāh)"

Muslims believe that God revealed the Qur'an to Muhammad, God's final prophet, and regard the Qur'an and the Sunnah (words and deeds of Muhammad) as the fundamental sources of Islam. They do not regard Muhammad as the founder of a new religion, but as the restorer of the original monotheistic faith of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. Islamic tradition holds that Judaism and Christianity distorted the messages of these prophets over time either in interpretation, in text, or both.
