Have you ever wondered what muslims were? read this:

A Muslim (Arabic: مسلم) is an adherent of the religion of Islam. The feminine form of 'Muslim' is Muslimah (Arabic: مسلمة). Literally, the word means "one who submits to God)". The word "Muslim" is the participle of the same verb of which "Islam" is the infinitive.[1]

Muslims believe that there is only one God, translated in Arabic as Allah. Muslims believe that Islam existed long before Muhammad and that the religion has evolved with time. The Qur'an describes many Biblical prophets and messengers as Muslim: Adam, Noah (Arabic: Nuh), Moses (Arabic: Musa) and Jesus (Arabic: Isa) and his apostles. The Qur'an states that these men were Muslims because they submitted to God, preached his message and upheld his values. Thus, in Surah 3:52 of the Qur'an, Jesus’ disciples tell Jesus: "do thou bear witness that we are Muslims". Muslims pray five times a day; these five prayers are known as Fajr, Zuhr, Asr, Maghrib, Isha. There is also a special Friday prayer called Jumu'ah.

Most Muslims accept as a Muslim anyone who has publicly pronounced the Shahadah, which states, "There is none worthy of worship except God, and Muhammad is His Messenger." This is often translated as, "There is no God except Allah"; "Allah" is the Arabic word for "the God". Currently, there are an estimated 1.4 billion Muslims, making it the second largest religion in the world.

I think Arabic looks pretty. ^^ I learned about Islam in my history class when we were learning about the Middle East. My teacher knows how to speak Arabic along with 8 other languages. He's a pretty cool teacher. (:

muslim isn't really much of a religion, it is actually borderline to fake from my point of view unlike Christianity since Christianity has exorcists and stuff who force out evil spirits like on paranormal state which has to be real or it wouldn't work

As thefinalword said this is a thread to discuss the religion Islam, not find out who is Muslim, so it's not going to be locked.

This supposed to be a discuss, not just one word posts, here's some questions for consideration.

What's your favorite/least favorite aspect of Islam?
How did you learn about Islam?
What's it's like being Muslim or growing up in a Muslim home?
What do you know about the history of Islam and what do you think about it?
If you are Muslim, why do you like/dislike it?

I used to know how to write in arabic and read the Qur'an and read some Arabic text since my friend taught me how to. I sadly forgot. But, I am in good terms with many Muslims and are friends with them. In fact, I am attending my cousin's Muslim wedding at Malaysia this December, I am very excited!

shouldn't there be some reformation in islam? like don't take everything in the Qur'an literally. in order to reduce the violence associated with the religion.

I don't know much about muslims... okay almost nothing but I doubt that most are bad people. There will always be the crazy ones just like in every other part of society.

fasting, its fricken annoying, especially when you dont believe in it and are being forced.

How did you learn about Islam?

my grandparents and neighbours shoved it down my throat since i was a kid

What's it's like being Muslim or growing up in a Muslim home?

Well since my parents are from another branch of Muslim, it was living easy, i didnt have to wear any hijab, or i didnt have to pray to the carpet every 5 hours like some of the other strict muslims. Plus i was allowed to wear a bikini when i went swimming unlike some of the other folks.

What do you know about the history of Islam and what do you think about it?

i believe in non of it. i think anything that has to do with religion is bullshit.

If you are Muslim, why do you like/dislike it?

i dont care much about religion, but i hate the fact some people are surprised when i say i am muslim. or make a stupid joke like "is your uncle a terrorist?" *mummble* stupid ignorant assholes... (>____>);
Muslim life must suck badly. One question have you fasted before?? if you have how did it feel?
