The Religion Islam

The Concept of God: According to this concept there is an Entity that made this Universe and everything present in it. This Entity is called God. The other important part of this concept is that this Entity which is called God is Only One. This concept of monotheism is a fundamental when it comes to believing in God, especially in the religion of Islam. God is an english word which in arabic is known as 'Allah' and may be known by some other words in other languages, but it is the same Entity. Some of the biggest misconceptions that people have is to do with the word 'Allah'. For various reasons, many people have come to believe that in the religion of Islam the Muslims worship a different God than Christians and Jews. This is not correct, since "Allah is simply the arabic word for God".

What is Islam: Islam is not simply the name of a religion, the followers of which are called Muslims. The word 'Islam' is an arabic word which in relation to religion means submission. In simple words Islam means submission to God and to follow the instructions conveyed by the Prophet of one's time e.g.Islam at the time of Abrahim (peace be upon him) was to obey the orders of God and to follow the instructions of the Prophet Abrahim (p.b.u.h). Islam at the time of Moses (peace be upon him) was to obey the orders of God and to follow the instructions of the Prophet Moses (p.b.u.h). Islam at the time of Jesus (peace be upon him) was to obey the orders of God and to follow the instructions of the Prophet Jesus (p.b.u.h). In the same manner, Islam after the arrival of the last Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is to obey the orders of God and to follow the instructions of the Prophet Muhammad (p.b.u.h).
