Islam, a name given by Allah to this religion
(Quran 5:4), is an Arabic word which literally means obedience and
peace. ISLAM is derived from the Arabic root "SALEMA":
peace, purity, submission and obedience. So 'Islam' would mean the
path of those who are obedient to Allah and who establish peace
with Him and His creatures. Its follower are called Muslims.
Islam is not a new religion.
It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which Allah revealed
to all prophets before Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Allah
says in the Qur’ân:
"Say, `We believe in ALLAH and that
which has been revealed to us, and that which was revealed to Abraham
and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and in that which
was given to Moses and Jesus and other Prophets from their Lord.
We make no distinction between any of them and to HIM we submit."
