Difference Between Islam and Muslim

Islam vs Muslim

Nearly one quarter of the world’s population follows the religion that was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed and subsequently transcribed into the Quran. Despite its number of faithful followers that have now settled across the globe, many Westerners don’t have a clear idea of what this religion entails. Subsequently, even incredibly fundamental questions, such as the difference between Islam and Muslim, arise as these same Westerners are beginning to explore their increasingly globalized world. Beyond linguistic distinctions, there are actually very few differences between Islam and Muslim.

Definition of Islam and Muslim

  • Islam : the meaning comes from the Arabic verbal noun (like a gerund) s-l-m. When appropriate vowel markers are added the word Islam appears. The etymology of s-l-m is to submit, accept, or surrender. From this comes Islam’s conventional definition of surrender to God.
  • Muslim : also has its roots in the s-l-m verb. It is a participle of the verb and refers to a person who engages in the act of submission, acceptance, or surrender. Therefore a Muslim is a person who submits to the will of God, or a follower of Islam.

Uses of Islam and Muslim

  • Islam  is generally used in conversation to denote the religion or community of believes as a whole. For instance: ‘The Islamic community in town will be celebrating Eid next week.’ It is also used when talking about the religion as a noun unto itself. For instance: ‘Islam is based on the sayings of the Prophet Mohammed that have been written down in the Quran.’
  • Muslim  is generally used in conversation to qualify or distinguish a person. For instance, ‘Remember the Muslim man who works at the bank?’ It can also be used as a simple description of one’s religious beliefs. For instance: ‘He is Christian but she is Muslim.’ Because Muslims are a minority community in many countries and most of the West, describing someone as Muslim may also reflect on their lifestyle and choice of dress in addition to their religious beliefs.

Misuses of Islam and Muslim

  • Islam : grammatically speaking, Islam should only refer to the religion or acts done in the name of that religion, never a person who practices that religion. Islamic community and Islamic art are correct, Islamic man is not.
  • Muslim  should be used to describe all people of the Islamic faith but not the faith itself. You may say that you are interested in the religion of Muslims, but never in the Muslim religion.

1.Islam and Muslim are both words used to describe the religion revealed to the Prophet Mohammed.
2.Islam and Muslim both have the same origin in the Arabic verb s-l-m.
3.Islam is the act of submitting to the will of God whereas a Muslim is person who participates in the act of submission.
4.To be correctly used, Islam or Islamic should describe the religion and its subsequent cultural concepts whereas Muslim should only describe the followers of the religion of Islam.

  1. Is it okay to call a community ‘Muslim?’ I read in your piece that it’s a word reserved for individuals, but since a community is made up of individuals, doesn’t that make saying, “Muslim community” okay?

    I’ve grown to hate the word, ‘Islamic,’ because of the way the ignorant racists are using it. Unless in the same paragraph as say, the ‘Christian Faith,’ I can’t see any reason to refer to Islam as, ‘the Islamic Faith.’ I prefer to call Islam, “Islam.”

    And btw, while we’re on racists’ corrupted use of the English language, wtf is an ‘Islamist?” Do we call Christians, “Christianists?”

    It’d be nice if you’d address that particular word.

    • Unfortunately it has come down to Islam being directly tied to fear of terrorism. I hear most “Islamic extremists”. I am not a Muslim, but I know truths about who and what terrorists are actually called, terrorists… That’s it. Its a religious propaganda war with Christianity and Islam, dumb sort of being that the concept of morality are so similar.

      • I would compare Islam and Christian extremist are similar in dedication they are not open to being reasonable. And I know if your religious you should be 100% or don’t basically be a hypocrite. But when the misuse of these religions to suppress or control their people or families is wrong. brain washing is easy to because most of these people looking for answers and are very committed to follow. And so its easy to accept denouncing other when they don’t agree with them.

      • sir you r right
        there is no violence in any religion whether Christianity or Islam because both religions are revealed by Allah and we all know Allah is ghafoor and raheem .


        • I totall disagree with you base on your opinion comparing Islam and Christianity.

        • First, someone please explain how Islam or Muslim became a race and not a religion. All this talk about anti Muslim and anti Islamic racism is by people who have extreme guilt feelings about Racism. My guess is they’re mostly descendants from old slave owners. Or from Nazi’s or other such past groups so they compensate bt calling everything racist. Like Chicken Noodle, your a white racist, Like Chicken Fried, your a white racist, there’s no escaping their cycloptic view of a racist world.
          Secondly, Did I see posted, both Religions were “Revealed by Allah” ? Allah Who? Long before anyone said Allah, they prayed to “Wahweh”. So Allah didn’t exactly reveal Gods name half a millennium after he was declared the one ultimate and true God by the Babylonians.

      • I’ve read the definition between the 2,Islam and muslim and I still lack understandung,can you explain. I am Christian but hate to see any religion stereotyped but in order to correct ignorant remarks I have to fully understand at least the basics.

    • “Islam and Islamism are very different. While the former is a religion, the latter is merely a political, “anti-” ideology that spews hatred.” That’s how the terms are supposed to be used.

      • Hi Cindy, I’d like to learn more about this. Do you have any links to get me on my way? Thanks.
        “Islam and Islamism are very different. While the former is a religion, the latter is merely a political, “anti-” ideology that spews hatred.” That’s how the terms are supposed to be used.

    • Fuck this shit. We do not have to address anything. What has become of the words wasn’t something dictated by anyone of the west – islam and muslims should address the fucking extremists in their faith, and maybe islamist would start having abnother meaning. You must take a fucking stand, or else the worlds stand will be against you. I am sick and tired of muslims asking for things to be addressed but they not doing anything about anything . Were are the muslim states in the refugee crisis? Were are the muslim states in the war against terrorism ? I’ll tell you were they are – they are fucking financing the IS , and not accepting any of the refugees ! YOU ADDRESS WHAT YOU STAND FOR!!!!!!

      • I’M a Catholic, and I have been one all my life
        I know that if we were to have a radical group that will be killing everybody that is not Catholic in the name of Catholicsism the Pope, and all the denomination of the western world will be going on Global television to denounce that infammy….

          “I’M a Catholic, and I have been one all my life

          Gee just like they did in the Crusades? Most wars were started in the name of religion, politics, and nationality. I think it’s time for that big meteor in the sky to come down to Earth and make a clean slate. Maybe bring back the dinosaurs.

          • I doubt that you have studied the history of the crusades because if you did, then you wouldn’t have made a bare assertion.

        • You mean like the Roman church did when they slaughtered indigenous populations all over the world to save their souls and spread the “GOOD”, news about Christ?

          • The whole point being you muppet is that we have moved on as a civilised society and baulk against any such act now
            Give me a modern day example of where anyone from the Christian faith, beyond those trying to protect themselves, have any desire to “cleanse” their country from non Christians ??
            Unlike the Quran it’s not in there to do this
            I.e. No tolerance for non believers full stop is the basic tenet of the Islam faith

          • I’m not a religious person anymore and reading some of these reactions, anger, ignorance in this post alone. I feel like I really made a good choice. Smh! yet I still have belive in humanity. That’s faith!!

      • dumbass…u think ur religion are perfect?

      • mind your language it shows how you illetrate so be a good human don’t abuse other religion this is very harmful for humanity

      • I agree with you as a muslim. They are not following islam, do you see how strong the bond between other countries are yet the bonds between muslim countries have grown apart, they are not followers of religion by saying to no to the thousands of refugees. You want to know who is fighting the war against isil face-to-face? People in such dire states that if they were unarmed they would be refugees in a crisis, and yet to my amazement the muslim world doesn’t care about each other anymore.

    • I’m curious. How come you use the word “racists” when you are talking about religion, and not race?

      • Please don’t call Islam a religion, it is a philosophy used to brainwash the masses. The Prophet Mohammed was a debauch rapist who proposed that every Muslim man who lived by his philosophy would enter the afterlife with a permanent erection and 72 virgins. This is why these idiots have no fear of murdering infidels in the name of Allah because they simply want perpetual sex. There is nothing in it for the women, who become virgins in the afterlife to live a constant hell of perpetual rape.

        • You lack of history that mak you a fool.

        • please think bro..u think,u writte like this,people will like ur word?seriously not…racist..Prophet Muhammad IS NOT A RAPIST..HE MARRIED AFTER HER WIFE IS DEAD..u must understand the concept…and u must know that bible is injil,u know where injil from??Islam bro..Cristian people editing that injil and make a bible

        • “Please don’t call Islam a religion, it is a philosophy used to brainwash the masses.”

          Please… All religion is philosophy used to brainwash the masses. It’s the commercialisation of spirituality. Capitalising on peoples faith.

          Religion is an ugly business, albeit very successful.

    • I would suggest to this Muslim that we are not racist, by thatt you are Islamaphobic.

    • As an ex-Muslim who now has no communication with most of my family (or childhood friends)… I am AMAZED when I speak with people (mostly white western people straight out of university) who defend Islam in the name of ‘tolerance’ and ‘compassion’.

      Let me tell you this. The people you are defending have NO compassion for you (or anyone else who is not Muslim or apostatizes). They use these people and play the victim so they can setup their beliefs and laws in the western countries. Someone has to tell you people. No one understands what is happening. Behind closed doors, many Muslim families laugh at how easy is it to bring their culture into the western nations. Simply move to a country and have 7-8 children, raise them in a Muslim area with strict faith in the Quran and tell them to have more children. With western birth rates below 2 (per family), Islam will have Sharia law and majority within 5 generations.
      If you actually read the Quran, it teaches nothing but the conquest and spread of Islam and the violent destruction of those who are not Allah’s chosen. Worse than the Christian old testament. Muslims are waiting for the right time to strike at the remaining non-Muslim cultures.
      I refuse to be a part of this religion because they treat us women like animals. I had no say in what I wanted to do in life and my life was already planned for me by the time I was 16. HOW IS THAT A LIFE?? Only the men benefit from Islam. That’s all I will say on this topic.

      • No religious save female gender most like that of Islam .female children is not allow at all before till my Holy prophet comes to save us.islam treat female gender like diamond and gold.

      • Akila,
        Your explanation is valuable insight. Islam promotes a false religion of subjection through force, ignorance and deceit.
        Its religious danger is like allowing a Trojan Horse to enter. Everyone needs to hear what you have said, but unfortunately, the generally accepted beliefs in tolerance, fairness and equality allow the truth to be buried to many. Very dangerous to our future, but as Hitler learned, “The bigger the lie, the more who believe it.”
        Quran Surah (9:29)
        Fight those who do not believe in Allah, nor in the latter day, nor do they prohibit what Allah and His Messenger have prohibited, nor follow the religion of truth, out of those who have been given the Book, until they pay the tax in acknowledgment of superiority and they are in a state of subjection.
        John 12:47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. 48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. That word is in the Bible, not the Quran.

      • Akilah,
        Regarding the Bible Old Testament – it was written solely to the Jews (proof is Romans 2:14-15) as they rejected Jesus. The OT lays down the law that is now written on everyone’s heart. The Jews to this day are still looking forward to another god. So the Biblical OT had a purpose. Read Romans 3:20. Animal sacrifice saved no one, but the answer lies in 2 Corinthians 5:21. Now that you are no longer a Muslim, please consider Bible study. Read Genesis & then go to the New Testament to find saving truth.

        • Hope you and world to be in peace

          please note , Islam has command about Muslim think we have this command :

          it is true ?
          is it necessary ?
          is it helpful for you and others ?
          is it makes inspiring ?
          is it kind and favor?

      • God bless you and your family and friends “!! Your so Right about The Whole Setup “!!? They plan for the future of the best time to Blow your Ass Up,And Take over the Whole World “!!? So Sorry you had to Indure your Whole life a Terrible Environment ” Of Hell “!!? I’m Praying for you and your family and friends “!!! Sholam “

      • Akilah,

        Your eyes are open to see the truth. Most people are lead blindly.
        Your story or explanation is like to a tree that bears good and bad fruit.

        The Lord said you would know me by my fruit that is Good that I bear.

        The bad fruit you do see is hate, anger, kill, rape and murder .

        Your heart has been open by God to see the truth.
        God is Love and in him there is no darkness.
        He is searching your heart. Akilah
        Don’t stop seeking God. He has found you, but you have not found him.

        But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

        This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. 6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.

        Be open to God’s leading and you will see truth.

        You have much to do. In time your destiny and purpose you will see. Be guided by LOVE

      • Do you have to live in fear of your life since you broke away from the Muslim religion? Is there a target on your back as the result of taking on western women’s rights? Or are you disowned and shunned by your friends and family but left to be on your own? Lastly why do Muslim women try to get Western women drawn into their beliefs when Muslim women are regarded as property to abuse and forced into almost a type of slavery. I personally could never sit back and allow the men of that religion dictate to me that my daughter must be married to whomever wishes to claim her as his wife. To allow them to rape these children or mudulate their body’s.

    • “And btw, while we’re on racists’ corrupted use of the English language, wtf is an ‘Islamist?” Do we call Christians, “Christianists?””

      Focking Hell Man! Talk about something from nothing. Racism has absolutely fuk all to do with an indifference in the grammar of words used to explain organisations that play on the innocent for greed. Or do you have a problem with the word racism? Am I supposed to say racists? Maybe prejudice is the word you’re looking for, but…
      WTF! Religion. Islam, islamist, christian, christianist, muslim, christian, catholic.. How long till people realise it’s all the same “evil” taking advantage of your naivety.

    • You don’t get to dictate the English language. Go back to calling it s.l.m . or shut the fuck up.. This is nothing short of you being an example of how Islam is bad because it means to submit. To tell a people they can’t say Islamic when it’s definitely properly used is the act of forcing is to submit to Islamic beliefs. You are a hypothetical thinker to say Islam is not a bad form of religion that forces themselves on others and the turn around and say this rhetoric you spit out your pathetic mouth..

      • And we say it is Christian. Not Christianityic. Do we say islamity?..no.. You need an education in both languages.. You have very little common sense

    • A muslim is a part of the islamic community…

    • “I’ve grown to hate the word, ‘Islamic,’ because of the way the ignorant racists are using it.”

      Islam and Muslim do not describe a “race” – how can they then be used as racist words?

  2. Islam is NOT a religion. It is a form of government that uses a religious component to hide the legal, political, economic and military components behind in order to position itself to conquer the world.

    What Islam Isn’t By Dr. Peter Hammond
    “…When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights’, they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works; As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone…” ; “…At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities…” ; “…From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population…” ; “…When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats ( Amsterdam – Mohammed cartoons)…”

    • Islam or Muslim is hardly a religion. Something that was started by an ignorant hippy who was unable to get a gal (and who was a pedo in nature) just contorted stories from nearby Hebrews, Christians and the native religions, and brought together perhaps the only ever “religion” in the world where the God is like an angry Naz… Come on..

  3. From what I have read about sharia law, one would think that the Islamic faith has to be of the devil.

  4. Six of one and 1/2 dozen of another??

  5. islam is shitslam, all of you mindless numbnuts that follow it should consider suicide.

    • And there he is. The ignorant racist everyone. Take a bow you dumbshit.

    • Wow. I’m not religious at all, i just came here to learn something then to read your negative dribble. Please do the world and humanity a favor and don’t breed.

      • Christians are deceiving themselves because they left the original book Jesus give them to followed and change it to all suit them.where is your original Bible. Everyday you are rewriting Bible that why you are devil. I think all happen as a result of economic better leave that of the world because you don’t wen you will die and face God and you are abusing Holy Quran that it’s complete. I pity you

        • Perhaps bible may rewrite but its saying love the people, dont hurt others feeling but some nuts like you wrote the quran its saying kill the peoples drink their blood and suck their flesh this is what the quran teaching to islam

  6. They are evil and referred to as “evil” by anyone who hasn’t their head in a peace-loving-bag-of-bullshit-hippie-idealism. They are a scourge in their own nations and all nations who welcome them. Open your eyes and see for yourself. Every nation who receives them grieves. Nothing else matters.

  7. To say one is racist for not liking the Muslims or Islamic faith is ridiculous!! Considering neither is considered race. It’s the religion and the extremes they go through to make the rest of the world conform to their beliefs!!!

  8. Thanks for this article. I’m a Christian…ish in the US. I am appalled by the by the way our media, government, and ignorant citizens forget that our country was built on the principle of ” Separation of Church and State”, yet readily includes innocent members of the Muslim community and the Islamic religion as a whole as suspects or a threat whenever there is a mass shooting or terror attack commuted by one. When was the last time the Catholics were all suspect when some drunk Irish guy unloaded his AK at the pub?
    I’m glad that I can educate myself and try to understand other human beings who have different beliefs than me instead of labeling them and grouping them into a certain group of enemy, or threat.
    Peace.. 🙂

  9. So…Muslims religion is Islam? Or Islamists religion is Muslim? I still don’t understand.

  10. islam. in islam we believe allah is a only one GOD. and Mohammad (peace be upon him ) is the last Prophet of allah. and Quran is the last book from. allah.

    for more information please go to islamic center and confirm what is islam and muslim.

    sorry. brothers I can not write english. but I try.

    • You are the evil and the religious u believe stand for that, if not that you are greed the name hv called in your book that someone is coming from particular side family but because you like to deceive yourself that y you left the true if someone is a president today is that means no other president that is coming and some president had gone.only a fool will believe other religious because no book complete like Quran.

      • I pity for you because Isa believe in Islam and stop renew Bible everyday. If my if in a sentence means explanation and you rewrite to condition you are deceiving yourself

    • Do you condone the actions of the muslims and Islam communities for attempting to push their beliefs on the people of our country? They have basically come into our country illegally yet feel they have the right to make demands on our country to comply with their customs and beliefs. The American people will never comply to these demands and will fight to remove muslims and islams from our country. Do you believe they have the right to make those demands.

  11. The whole radical Islamic terrorists was very VERY well categorized by Ben Stein to be a form of mental illness. Though we tolerate people with mental illness in the U.S.A. there is currently no sort of mental healthcare system available. Most people are afraid to discuss their mental illness with others due to the fact they will or may be shunned by the other human beings nearby. Once people with mental illness become a danger to themselves or others (or threaten to) they can be taken into custody legally and kept away from the main population.
    I feel bad for women who grew up not dancing and hiding themselves from light like cockroaches. They knew deep down in their heart of hearts that all this nonsense was dead wrong from following the teachings of a violent false prophet right on down to the wife beating, killing poets and the “virgin rich gardens” promised to people that fight the holy war… It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out this is horse shit! What woman in her right mind would want a virgin rich garden?? Oh, so only men have a good life on Earth OR a good after life in this religion made by violent men for violent men?
    Clearly you have to be mentally ill to believe in such evil. The teachings, if you dare to pursue them, will make you sick to your stomach if you have a shred of good inside of you. Please do not sympathize with them until you read http://www.answering-islam.org/Authors/Arlandson/ten_reasons.htm

    Top ten reasons why Islam is NOT the religion of peace
    Violence in Muhammad’s life and the Quran

    P.S. I cannot trust anyone besides Donald Trump. He is the only one that has the balls to do something other than stand there and make remarks about peaceful Muslims. Okay, we have “backslider” Christians (peaceful) and we have the ones that get in your face and tell you that you are going to Hell (confrontational). Democrats felt the need to ban Jesus and God from Church, Santa, Crosses and even Peanuts Christmas from school because they annoyed somebody (most likely some Muslim). When was the last time Santa committed a mass murder?
    P.S.S. Who do YOU think is complaining about our traditional holidays, like Christmas, anywhere in the U.S.A. ? Is it Christians and Catholics? Of course not; its their Holiday.

    Is it the JEWS? Of course not they learned their lesson when they offed God’s son Jesus and the sky unleashed all the fury and rage possible until they had no choice but to admit “Surely he was the son of God”. I highly doubt they will be making that mistake again.

    Is it Atheists? Nope again! Atheists could care less if you told them when Snow white bends over a pot of gold shoots out of her arse and lands at the end of a rainbow in Ireland. They simply do not believe and could care less if we believe.

    Who does that leave that could possibly be complaining about Santa Claus? This religious war started long ago. Whether you believe or not in a higher power just believe in good versus evil before its too late. Please? For all of us?!

    For what its worth I used to be a Democrat. I realized before long as a telephone interviewer for political surveys the Republicans are by far the lesser of 2 evils. Judge them not for what they say but for what they actually do. The policies most Republicans support seem very invasive at times, morally speaking, but they seek to save us from ourselves. We are our own worst enemy.

  12. The note at the bottom of this page reads that these comments are moderated. Why write that when it’s clearly untrue?

    The comment just above mine is so insane it’s almost funny. It reads like something from a skit about stupid wingnuts.

    The problem is…it’s not funny at all. Please remember that this is how it all started in Germany…racist men deliberately intimidating a group of people, all based on their religious beliefs.

    The rightwing nutjobs on this this comment section are starting to make GW Bush look like a centrist.

  13. everyone are asking,muslims are wrong..first of all you should judge yourself than blame others.in bonsina,kashmir Palastine muslims are killed.no one speak about them…because they are muslims.if muslim do something,then all world become unite against them.

  14. Rascist denotes a RACE like for example Caucasian or Asian or African American.. People are not RACIST if they think islam is not a religion of peace or all muslims are terrorists… Now calling you a sand nigger is rascist or a raghead camel jockey is rascist if I’m saying it to mean that you’re inferior to me, a white woman.. If I’m saying I hate all people who are muslim and that Mohammed was a sick con man then I’d be a bigot… Thank you

  15. for every body who love life

    we should be aware why so many big and rich countries like to destroy Islam concepts
    Islam tells to people come to gather to be one unit and one community , who love each other , help each other and exists in peaceful statue , but this concept is harmful for them , they are trying to destroy this concept , but they will not to be success , because Allah and God is over them.

  16. if you want to know what is Islam , see what it tells about speak

    it tells your speak should has these items :
    is it true speak ?
    is it helpful for you and others to speak ?
    is it inspiring ?
    is it necessary to tell ?
    is it kind ?

  17. 1. Surah Al-Fatihah

    1. In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

    2. All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the ‘Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists).

    3. The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.

    4. The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection)

    5. You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything).

    6. Guide us to the Straight Way

    7. The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace, not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger ,nor of those who went astray .

    29.Surah Al-Ankabut (The Spider):

    46. And argue not with the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), unless it be in (a way) that is better (with good words and in good manner, inviting them to Islamic Monotheism with His Verses), except with such of them as do wrong, and say (to them): “We believe in that which has been revealed to us and revealed to you; our Ilah (God) and your Ilah (God) is One (i.e. Allah), and to Him we have submitted (as Muslims).”
    47. And thus We have sent down the Book (i.e this Qur’an) to you (O Muhammad ), and those whom We gave the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) aforetime] believe therein as also do some of these (who are present with you now like ‘Abdullah bin Salam) and none but the disbelievers reject Our Ayat[(proofs, signs, verses, lessons, etc., and deny Our Oneness of Lordship and Our Oneness of worship and Our Oneness of Our Names and Qualities: i.e. Islamic Monotheism)].

    48. Neither did you (O Muhammad ) read any book before it (this Qur’an), nor did you write any book (whatsoever) with your right hand. In that case, indeed, the followers of falsehood might have doubted.

    49. Nay, but they, the clear Ayat [i.e the description and the qualities of Prophet Muhammad written like verses in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] are preserved in the breasts of those who have been given knowledge (from the people of the Scriptures). And none but the Zalimun (polytheists and wrongdoers, etc.) deny Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.).

    50. And they say: “Why are not signs sent down to him from his Lord? Say: “The signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner.”

    51. Is it not sufficient for them that We have sent down to you the Book (the Qur’an) which is recited to them? Verily, herein is mercy and a reminder (or an admonition) for a people who believe.

    52. Say (to them O Muhammad ): “Sufficient is Allah for a witness between me and you. He knows what is in the heavens and on earth.” And those who believe inBatil (all false deities other than Allah), and disbelieve in Allah and (in His Oneness), it is they who are the losers.

  18. The Internet has wreaked havoc, death and foolishness on the world. Most responses are poorly written, inaccurate and give many of us a headache. Learn to spell.

  19. Hi, so my mom is extremely prejiduce and we argue all the time about how not all Muslims are trying to kill and blow up everyone. So can anyone explain to me with facts from the qua’ran (don’t know if I spelled that right) that the Muslim Religion is not trying to kill everyone. I feel like she is really watching to much of the news. Anyway please. I would really appreciate it.

    • well, when the muslims are not too busy trying to kill each other… do a search for sunnis versus sheites(sp?).

      then indeed their quran does prech for them to kill or enslave all infidels (meaning anyone who is not a muslim). now, there are actually a lot of so-called moderate muslims, who do not practice these beliefs. but it does not change the fact that this is what the quran teaches them to do.

      also moderate muslims have a strong tendency to turn a blind eye to the actions of fundamentalist muslims. or even to tacitly support them.

      further, the quran also says that muslims should deceive the non-muslims as to their true intentions. so then it becomes very difficult to tell the difference between a genuinely moderate muslim and a muslim who simply is hiding their true feelings and intentions.

      make no mistake the religion itself is a serious threat, it very aggressively directs muslims to conquer the whole world. also it is not entirely a religion, it is also a political ideology. they are not content to have their mosques, they also want total control of the government too.

      islam itself is still living in the stone ages. it is anti-human rights, anti-technology, anti-freedom of speech. etc.

      Looking closer at the quran I discovered that it is full of hate speech. Hate Speech has never been a protected form of expression. Therefore muslims are not entitled to freedom of speech when talking about their beloved religion. because their religion incites violence against anyone who is non-muslim.

      Sorry, liberals. There’s only 1 interpretation of Islam — Muhammad’s

      Islam-Ex Muslim., Allah is a Gangster,watch this you will leave Islam

  20. Thank you for the article. I think I was using the terms mostly correctly just from context. I will pay more attention. 🙂

  21. Hi Im not here to create one big argument or anything on here. Im just here to ask one or two questions about the Qur’an. Is it true that in the Qur’an says that all other religions must be eliminated? My parents told me that it did say that I would like someone who read the Qur’an to confirm this question if true or not.

  22. to Sade and Angel,
    I think that you will find many of your answers here.

  25. There is a different between Muslim extremist and extremist Islam. those who say Islam is not a religion they are wrong. there is a thin line between religion and ideology. Christians and Muslims should not engage in a debate on who is right or wrong but instead they should try to combat in a dialogue that will both benefit their societies; try to solve the epidemics of the world.

  26. Islam, Sharia Law and the Quran are not religions they are Muslims “foreign law”

  27. All truth. I am a student of Arabic language and I totally agree with the article. Unfortunately in the occidental journalism a lot of confusion is generated by the misunderstanding of both terms ‘Islam’ and ‘Muslim’.

  28. Islam is name of religion, revealed by the same God who sent the previous prophets and messengers like Moses, Jesus. God says in Quran, all messengers were sent by Me to humankind for their guidance, yet humans either rejected them or killed them, because they did not like the message from God. Those who reject God’s message, reject God and have no hope in hereafter.
    Jesus and Moses preached exactly the same morality like the Last and Final Messenger of God Muhammad peace be upon them all.
    Quran says very clearly – Say, we do not discriminate between any of the messengers or prophets, all of them were from God and we believe in all of them and respect all of them.

    But humans, being of selfish nature divided themselves into groups and sects and called themselves Jews, gentiles, Christians, nasiris etc. The Quran clearly guides – “Say, your forefather Abraham who believe in One God was neither a Jew nor a Christian, he believed and submitted to One true God and was a Muslim, so whoever wants success in hereafter follow the Last Prophet Muhammad whose book Quran cannot be played with anymore by humans, for I have taken the responsibility of protecting My Word of final testament given to Muhammad, My final Messenger before World ends.

    Muslim – one who follows Islam.
    Peace to All.

  29. I am very happy that i growed in islam

  30. I do not see a difference here. Nothing said here separates the Muslim from the Islamic religion, which is a religion of Death and subjugation of will to Ruthless Dictatorship.
