“Islām” is the Arabic word for peaceful, willing submission to the code of conduct ordained by God. The followers of Islam are called “Muslims”. Islam is not only a religion, but also a complete way of life ordained by ONE God and taught to Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them all).
The Quran, the last revealed Word of God, is the prime source of every Muslim’s faith and practice. It deals with all the subjects which concern us as human beings: wisdom, doctrine, worship, and law, but its basic theme is the relationship between God and His creatures. At the same time it provides guidelines for a just society, proper human conduct and an equitable economic system.
Discrimination and violence is prohibited for Muslims. “Oh mankind! We created you from a single soul, male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, so that you may come to know one another. Truly, the most honored of you in God ‘s sight is the greatest of you in piety….” (Quran: 49.13).
