Misunderstandings about Islam
Islam is an Arabic word meaning "submission" and in the religious context means "submission to the will of God". "Islam" is derived from the Arabic word "salam" which literally means peace.
The religion demonstrates peace and tolerance. Muslims, the followers of Islam, are worldwide and number 1.2 billion. Indonesia has the largest
population of Muslims, two hundred and twenty-eight million, while Saudi Arabia has twenty-two million. Forty percent of the seven to ten million American Muslims are African Americans.
All Arabs are not Muslims. Same ways, all Muslims are not Arabs. Allah is the Arabic word for God, which is used throughout the world by all Muslims and by Christian Arabs. Muslims believe in the same God as Christians and Jews believe.
The message of Islam is, Say, we believe in God and that which was revealed unto us, and that which was revealed unto Abraham and Ismael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and that which was revealed unto Moses and Jesus, and the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered (The Quran, 3:84). Islam can be traced to Adam, the first prophet of Islam. The Quran was however revealed in 610 AD to the Prophet Mohammad (peace be on him; pbuh).
