What is Islam?

Islam is the name God gave to His religion, it is not named after a person, place or ethnic group. Islam is God’s religion which was sent to all the prophets since the first of mankind until now. Prophets such as Noah, Abraham, Lot, Moses, Jacob, Jesus, etc. with the last and final prophet being Muhammad. All prophets came with the same message, which is that God is One, He is the Creator of all that exists and we should worship Him, seek forgiveness directly from Him and only He has power over all things. Islam is a complete way of life that gives perfect guidance in every aspect of life and is the only source of salvation and true peace when one is living as intended by his Creator, God.

    I asked a pretty ugly question in the live chat. This is my first time chatting on here. I did not get any response. I want to know about the Islam religion. At least more than what my aide tells me. She makes it seem so inviting with her peaceful loving ways. I think of becoming Moslem (forgive me for not spelling the word correctly),however, I think of my very Catholic Mom and how she will react every time and I am even 57 years old.
    I had a dream I was praying the Catholic say with Jesuses’ mother and she had this beautiful kimar on. I just had to try to start getting information on this religion on my own. I felt that dream ment something

      Thank you for coming to our site Regina. We are volunteer based and try our best to be online 24/7. Even when the button says online we may have only one volunteer who had multiple chats or he may have stepped away from the computer. We do not purposely ignore any chats or questions – even if they are based on the many negative stereotypes.
       
      Muhammad was the final prophet of God and all previous prophets came with the God’s message of monotheism. These previous prophets were Muslims who submitted and obeyed God and were not Christian, Jewish, etc. and this is the same message that Muhammad was given by God. God says, “Abraham was not a Jew, nor a Christian; but he was one pure of faith and Muslim (who submitted to God with a sound heart). He was never of those who associate partners with God.” [3:67] When the Muslims were a minority tortured and killed for 13 years in Mecca they practiced patience like Jesus and Moses followers. When they were a community or state and were attacked by pagan armies they were allowed and encouraged to defend and fight nobly as we also see from past prophets as well. Islam is a perfect and complete way of life that encourages peace and justice. Those who quote versus of violence would have their questions answered by simply reading the verses before and after and seeing that Islam teaches this complete and perfect system which gives us guidance in all situations of life.
       
      Direct to your question: Jesus and his mother Mary are of the best people who ever lived and revered in God’s religion (Islam) and by all believers in it. We invite you to the religion of Mary who was not a Christian but was a Muslim.

      This is an international site. Islam is not a religion belonging to any ethnicity or country and is God’s message for all mankind. As such there are Muslims in every country of the world and masjids in every major city of the world. There are Muslims of every nationality and ethnicity, so while many people think that all Muslims are Arab they do not know that about 85% of Muslims are not even Arab and coming from every race. It is projected that soon 1 out of every 3 people in the world will be Muslim.
       
      With this in mind it makes no sense to propagate hatred against billions of people without cause and to tell all Muslims to go home is a confusing statement since everyone can be a Muslim from any “home” including you. I am an ex-soldier who hated Islam until I learned about it and now I am an ex-Christian who loves God and His religion with all my heart. I ask that God opens your heart to His message and we are always here to chat with you, just click our chat button. For the sake of sincere learning and dialogue read our articles and come to use with any questions you have.

    How do I have a personal relationship with your god and if I become a muslim and find it’s not for me how do I leave?

    • Ali

      December 20, 2014 at 7:56 am

      I would firstly like to correct that there is not a separate “god” for me and you but there is only one God who is the Creator of all that exists. God says, “There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in false gods and believes in God has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And God is Hearing and Knowing.” [2:256]
       
      I remember vividly the first time I had true inner peace and happiness through a real relationship with God.
       
      I found this by being sincere in seeking God. I was a born and raised in the US, joined the military and was a “born again” Christian. After 9/11 I wanted to research and attack Islam as being an evil religion. When I started reading about it originally it was to attack it. But when one truly reads the Quran and about Islam they see it’s an amazing religion!
       
      Then while reading I wanted to compare it (and others) to Christianity because to be a true Christian I would have to “choose” it not just be it because that was all I knew. When one desires to become religious the first outlet is what is familiar. Eventually trying to disprove Islam was hopeless because I was fighting the truth.
       
      Whenever I read about any man made religion it would bring doubts, so the religion conflicted with our God given logic… our God given bodies and minds fought this as an incompatibility – the priests would just say “stop questioning and have blind faith or you’re a bad person.” While faith has a place once it is affirmed by common sense I was not asking “bad” questions… it was simply that a man made religion does not have the answers one seeking God’s truth desires.
       
      I’ll be clear that I am an engineer by trade an logic and fact appeals to me. I was always in advanced placement sciences and I am not swayed by random arguments that any religion could try… but with God’s truth of Islam there was no contradiction with science, logic, facts, history, authenticity of texts and when you’re mind, body and soul are in harmony based on the truth you achieve true peace. 12+ years as a Muslim that studies religion at high levels and daily and I have found the opposite with the religions of men in that Islam the more I read the stronger my faith becomes, every time.
       
      When I became Muslim over 12 years ago I was overcome by an inner peace that one can only get when we, created by God, follow Him as we were created to do and the religion which is also from Him. There can only be one religion of God, which is from the first to the last human… this is Islam… read more below.

    Is necessary to be Born again or to have a change of heart? I want answers from Islamic teachings.

    • Ali

      January 6, 2015 at 2:06 pm

      One becomes Muslim by believing sincerely that there is no god except God and in all His messengers. Upon entering God’s religion all of your past sins are erased that may have been done when one was ignorant of the truth. In this sense you are born again and are sinless and pure in following God’s religion and you have changed your heart away from the religions of men. See: http://www.faithchat.com/how-to-convert

      God speaks much about His prophet, Jesus the son of Mary, and revealed a whole chapter named “Mary” which details the story of the virgin birth, speaking as a child, the people corrupting his message after him and that he was a great prophet who worshipped and called people to God.
       
      God says, ❝And mention, in the Book [the story of] Mary, when she withdrew from her family to a place toward the east. • And she secluded herself from them. Then We sent to her Our Angel, and he represented himself to her as a man. • She said, “Indeed, I seek refuge in the Most Merciful from you, [so leave me] if you should be fearing of God.” • He said, “I am only the messenger of your Lord to give you [news of] a pure boy.” • She said, “How can I have a boy while no man has touched me and I have not been unchaste?” • He said, “Thus [it will be]; your Lord says, ‘It is easy for Me, and We will make him a sign to the people and a mercy from Us. And it is a matter [already] decreed.'” • So she conceived him, and she withdrew with him to a remote place.❞ [19:16-22]
       
      God says, ❝Then she brought him to her people, carrying him. They said, “O Mary, you have certainly done a thing unprecedented. • O sister of Aaron, your father was not a man of evil, nor was your mother unchaste.” • So she pointed to him. They said, “How can we speak to one who is in the cradle a child?” • [Jesus] said, “Indeed, I am the servant of God. He has given me the scripture and made me a prophet. • And He has made me blessed wherever I am and has enjoined upon me prayer and charity as long as I remain alive • And [made me] dutiful to my mother, and He has not made me a wretched tyrant. • And peace is on me the day I was born and the day I will die and the day I am raised alive.” • That is Jesus, the son of Mary – the word of truth about which they are in dispute. • It is not [befitting] for God to take a son; exalted is He! When He decrees an affair, He only says to it, “Be,” and it is. • [Jesus said], “And indeed, God is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him. That is a straight path.” • Then the factions differed [concerning Jesus] from among them, so woe to those who disbelieved – from the scene of a tremendous Day.❞ [19:27-37]
       
      Indeed many factions differed after the Prophet Jesus and the history is well known how the early followers of Jesus honored the Sabbath, followed the laws, and so on. These were true followers of the Prophet Jesus who worshipped God and not him. We find these followers in the earliest centuries after Jesus. Anyone who studies even the basics of history at this time sees that people were still arguing for Jesus as a prophet at Nicaea and afterwards. It wasn’t until the 4th and 5th centuries when the Roman empire standardized the religion, killing all who disagreed, under the later beliefs of Trinity and many other changes to Jesus’ message in order to Romanize it (such as changing the Sabbath and much more that is well known). Jesus’ message faded and his true followers were being killed wherever the Romans had influence at this time (4th and 5th centuries).
       
      Encyclopedia Britannica says, “Neither the word Trinity nor the explicit doctrine appears in the New Testament, nor did Jesus and his followers intend to contradict the Shema in the Hebrew Scriptures: “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord” (Deuteronomy 6:4)… The doctrine developed gradually over several centuries and through many controversies. Initially, both the requirements of monotheism inherited from the Hebrew Scriptures and the implications of the need to interpret the biblical teaching to Greco-Roman religions seemed to demand that the divine in Christ as the Word, or Logos, be interpreted as subordinate to the Supreme Being… It was not until the 4th century that the distinctness of the three and their unity were brought together in a single orthodox doctrine of one essence and three persons.”
       
      Under such conditions God did what was done when past messages of prophets faded and revived the religion and pure monotheism by sending a prophet with revelation. The Final Prophet, Muhammad, was born in the 6th century. You can read the well known story of the famous Christian Scholar, Salman the Persian, who details how the followers of Jesus were eliminated in the Roman effort to create this religion and reshape history. Thus when he was with his final teacher and wanted to find another teacher he was told there are none left and the prophet will come. Using the scripture Salman was guided to Medinah where he arrived before Muhammad and met him when he came. As a scholar of Jesus’ message he recognized Muhammad and accepted God’s prophet – as we at this site also hope you do as well. You can read his story here on our site at: http://www.faithchat.com/salman-the-persian
       
      Also some articles on historically proven facts on the changes to the Bible and the development of what is now known as Christianity (not to be confused with Jesus’ message which was monotheism and Islam just like all the prophets) you can see these links on our site: http://www.faithchat.com/the-misunderstood-bible & http://www.faithchat.com./is-the-bible-gods-word & http://www.faithchat.com/gospel-of-jesus

    Islam means surrender to Allah the Almighty, the only creator of the worlds. Allah is truth, love , wisdom, knowledge, compassion, mercy, power, strength, beauty and many more qualities. Quran the book revealed by Allah says that many Prophets came on earth to convey the message of Allah at different places at different times. Islam accepts them all. Islam is peace and believes in coordination of people of different temperaments with love. Allah has created them different. Why do we fight over trivial things ? Islam is peace. May Allah give light to everyone, Aameen.

      Islam is the name God gave to His religion which is meant for all people and all times. Muslims have come from various backgrounds before accepting and following God’s religion. I myself am Christian while many of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad came from Pagan, Jewish, etc. backgrounds. We have a couple convert stories on our site from ex-Christians in our FaithChat Converts section linked at the top of the page. We welcome you to click our “Live Chat” button at the bottom right of any page and chat with us one-on-one now to ask more or if you are ready to become a Muslim we can do that, as well, over the chat. God bless.
