Darkness adds to darkness, light eliminates it. Violence adds to violence, peace eliminates it. Whoever kills a soul unjustly or to spread corruption on the Earth, it is as if he has killed the entire humanity. And whoever saves a soul, it is as if he has saved the entire humanity.

Who is Muhammad?

What is Islam?
“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).
Human Rights in Islam
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).
