Islam is a simple religion of peace and peaceful practices.The word Islam means 'submission' or total surrender in to the loving care of All-mighty.
The religion is humble and simple to follow as it is strongly monotheistic, opposing of multiple divine existence or association of any kin to god. "God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.' (Qur'an) .Prophet Muhammed (P.B.U.H) is the last messenger of Allah.
Islam is derived from the Arabic word "salaama" and has a two-fold meaning: peace and submission to God. This submission requires a fully conscious and keen effort to submit to the one Almighty God. One must intentionally andconscientiously give oneself to the service of Allah.
It is a universal religion and its objective is to create and cultivate in man the quality and approach of Islam. The faith of this religion is the oneness and sovereignty of God, which has shaped and looked upon all human races as one family.
The word "Muslim" is originated from the Arabic word signifying a person totally devoted to the will of the God. And the word "Allah" meaning "the one True God" is also of Arabic origin.
