What is Islam?

What is Islam?

 The word Islam means submission to God, Allah. Islam is a monotheistic religion that revived in the Arabian Peninsula in the 7th century CE though being World's first and only most ancient religion. It is based on the belief in one God, Allah, and the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, as recorded in the Quran and the Hadith (the sayings and actions of the Prophet Muhammad).

The central belief of Islam is that there is no god but Allah, and that Muhammad is his last and final messenger. Muslims believe in the oneness of Allah, the prophets, the angels, the Day of Judgment, and predestination. They also believe in the importance of performing the Five Pillars of Islam, which are the declaration of faith (Shahada), prayer (Salah), fasting (Sawm), giving to charity (Zakat), and making a pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj) if one is able to do so.

Islam teaches that human beings were created by Allah to worship him and to live in accordance with his will, as revealed in the Quran and the Hadith. Muslims strive to live their lives in submission to Allah's will and to follow the example of the Prophet Muhammad in all aspects of their lives, including personal behavior, family life, and social interaction.

Islam is the second-largest religion in the world, with over 2 billion followers, and it has had a profound impact on the history, culture, and development of many regions around the world, particularly in the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia.
