Islam is the fastest
growing religion on earth .
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", . Hence, it was not a new religion brought
by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in Arabia in the seventh
century, but only the true religion of Allah re-expressed in its

worthy of worship; not stones, statues, crosses, the sun , the moon,
star, temples, animals, saints, priest, movie stars, football stars,
or religious people. All of those are created beings and worshiping
them is associate partners with Allah and this is the only sin which
wont be forgiven on the day of judgment and will condemn a man or
women to hell forever.

for God and its is the personal name which He gave Himself in the
The first point of
entry into the study of the religion of Islam is to study its core
belief of Islam rather than to learn the social aspects of Islam.

learn what is Islam, Who is Allah and what is Islamic Monotheism
(tawheed) and to also learn what is the opposite of tawheed which is
called shirk. Shirk can negate a persons Islam.
After this we
should know who was the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and what
is the Quran. When we have understood this then we have
understood the first pillar of Islam and we can progress to learning
about the secound pillar of Islam which is the prayer and after this
