What Is Islam?

Islam is taken from the root word ‘sa-la-ma’ which in Arabic refers to submission; so Islam means submission to God alone, and not associating any partners with Him. The Islamic Faith is the link between individual and God (For more information read ‘Islam-The Religion of Peace’ by: Dr. Abdul-Rahman Al-Sheha).

A Muslim is always mindful of God during day and night; the five daily prayers are meant to preserve the relation between God and man. The entire life of a Muslim is tied with God. God, the Exalted, says: “Say, "My prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are all for God, the Lord of the worlds.” (6:162)

The Traits of the Islamic Faith

To a Muslim, Islam is the last of the heavenly religions that has a divine link. One of the teachings of Islam is adherence to a strict form of monotheism. A Muslim does not associate partners to God. God, the Exalted, says: “If anyone seeks a religion other than Islam [submission to God], it will not be accepted from him; he will be among the losers in the Hereafter.” (3:185)
