SECTION 1



ISLAM




Islam is a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion articulated by the
Qur'an, an Islamic holy book considered by its adherents to be the
verbatim word of God (Allah), and for the vast majority of adherents,
also by the teachings, normative example and way of life (or sunnah);
it also is composed of prophetic traditions (or hadith) of Muhammad
(c. 5708 June 632 CE), considered by most of them to be the last
prophet of God. An adherent of Islam is called a Muslim (sometimes
spelled Moslem).

MUSLIM




A Muslim, sometimes spelled Moslem, relates to a person who follows
the religion of Islam, a monotheistic and Abrahamic religion based
on the Quran. Muslims consider the Quran to be the verbatim word of
God as revealed to the Islamic prophet Muhammad. They also follow
the teachings and practices of Muhammad as recorded in traditional
accounts called hadith. "Muslim" is an Arabic word meaning "one
who submits (to God)".

A female Muslim is sometimes called a "Muslimah". There are customs
holding that a man and woman or teenager and adolescent above the
age of fifteen of a lunar or solar calendar who possesses the
faculties of rationality, logic or sanity, but misses numerous
successive Jumu'ahs without a valid excuse, no longer qualifies as
a Muslim.

Most Muslims will accept anyone who has publicly pronounced the
declaration of faith (shahadah) as a Muslim.



The shahadah states:



There is no god but God,
Muhammad is the messenger of God.

THE QURAN




The Quran literally meaning "the recitation"; also romanised
Qur?an or Koran) is the central religious text of Islam, which
Muslims believe to be a revelation from God (Arabic: Allah).

Its scriptural status among a world-spanning religious community,
and its major place within world literature generally, has led to
a great deal of secondary literature on the Quran. Quranic
chapters are called suras and verses are called ayahs.

Muslims believe the Quran was verbally revealed by God to Muhammad
through the angel Gabriel (Jibril), gradually over a period of
approximately 23 years, beginning on 22 December 609 CE, when
Muhammad was 40, and concluding in 632 CE, the year of his death.
Muslims regard the Quran as the most important miracle of Muhammad,
a proof of his prophethood, and the culmination of a series of
divine messages that started with the messages revealed to Adam and
ended with Muhammad. They consider the Quran to be the only revealed
book that has been protected by God from distortion or corruption.
