Islam (Arabic: الإسلام; al-'islām) is a monotheistic religion originating with the teachings of Muhammad, a 7th century Arab religious and political figure. The word Islam means "submission", or the total surrender of oneself to God (Arabic: الله, Allāh). An adherent of Islam is known as a Muslim, meaning "one who submits (to God)".[


The word Islām is derived from the Arabic verb Aslama, which means to accept, surrender or submit. Thus, Islam means acceptance of and submission to God, and believers must demonstrate this by worshiping Him, following His commands, and avoiding polytheism.

Muslims consider the Qur'an to be the literal word of God; it is the central religious text of Islam.[23]

OK, I was wrong. Blind faith is not SUBMISSION, SURRENDER AND WORSHIP.

Rhetorical question for you: Do you believe in Santa Claus?
