    The first thing that one should know and clearly understand about Islam is what the word "Islam" itself means. The religion of Islam is not named after a person as in the case of Christianity which was named after Jesus Christ, Buddhism after Gotama Buddha, Confucianism after Confucius, and Marxism after Karl Marx. Nor was it named after a tribe like Judaism after the tribe of Judah and Hinduism after the Hindus. Islam is the true religion of "Allah" and as such, its name represents the central principle of Allah's "God's" religion; the total submission to the will of Allah "God". The Arabic word "Islam" means the submission or surrender of one's will to the only true god worthy of worship "Allah" and anyone who does so is termed a "Muslim", The word also implies "peace" which is the natural consequence of total submission to the will of Allah. Hence, it was not a new religion brought by Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) I in Arabia in the seventh century, but only the true religion of Allah re-expressed in its final form.

    Islam is the religion which was given to Adam, the first man and the first prophet of Allah, and it was the religion of all the prophets sent by Allah to mankind. The name of God's religion lslam was not decided upon by later generations of man. It was chosen by Allah Himself and clearly mentioned in His final revelation to man. In the final book of divine revelation, the Qur'aan, Allah states the following:

    Its not about the preaching, its about the fact that these people have so much respect for Islam, but are still willing to hear it being slated. Thats pretty stupid.

    It would be a much happier world if everyone just left it alone and respected each others' beliefs. As that is what they are, beliefs. You choose what you want to put your faith in and live by the rules that they set down. As all religions seem to have peace as a common denominator it is rather strange that so many conflicts are caused by it.

    Yeah, stupid.

    At the core, religion is just belief really. Why do people take it so seriously? Why do they try and make everyone else believe the same?

    Maybe the inventors of the major religions were just so arrogant that they had to force their beliefs on others.

    I've only read the first post by Abdul and I would like to say a few things:

    Why can't all the religions not to differenciate and fight over who's religion is better?!?! I'm a muslim myself but I see NO difference in Judasim, Christianity, Zartush and yes even Hinduasm etc. Why do you ask? Because we all believe in the same God. We might refer him to as different hings but he is the same one who created all of us. So why can't we just ignore the differences and live happily ever after ? We all have different traditions and none of the TRUE believers think that their religion is the best!! Why can't everyone accept that all religions are the same (except different traditions) and live happily ever after? We are not black or white. We are different shades of grey. However as long as there is an element of black and white (colours that make up grey) then we are of the same origin and are the same!!!

    Christ wasn't his last name. I don't think they had surnames back then, hence "Jesus of Nazareth". I think "Christ" is a word meaning something like "the saviour" or something like that.
