Question: What is Islam? Another question: Who are Muslims?
Islam is one of the largest religions in the world, with over 1 billion followers. It is a monotheistic faith based on revelations received by the Prophet Muhammad in 7th-century Saudi Arabia. The Arabic word islammeans “submission,” reflecting the faith’s central tenet of submitting to the will of God. Followers of Islam are called Muslims.
