meeting at new school on friday

to say or not to say?

hmm i am researching in what muslim is?

and found.


Many scholars, historians and saints have tried to come up with a true definition for Muslim. Some historians have put forward that a Muslim denotes a follower of exclusively of the Qur'an, but Muslims believe that every prophet and their respective followers were Muslim as well. In defining the term, the mystic Ibn Arabi said:

"A Muslim is a person who has dedicated his worship exclusively to God...Islam means making one's religion and faith God's alone.[18]

The Qur'an is clear on promulgating that every prophet preached the same faith, which centered on the worship of God. Therefore, the Qur'an speaks of anyone who submits themselves to God as being a Muslim, regardless of whether they lived before the Qur'an was revealed or after. Thus, the Qur'an narrates the preaching of Noah:

"But if you turn back, I did not ask of you any reward; my reward is only due from God, and I have been commanded to be of those who have submitted (muslimūn)"[19]

Used to describe earlier prophets in the Qur'an

The Qur'an describes many prophets and messengers as well as their respective followers as Muslim: Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Moses and Jesus and his apostles are all confirmed as being Muslim by the Qur'an. The Qur'an states that these men were Muslims because they submitted to God, preached His message and upheld His values, which included praying, charity, fasting and pilgrimage. Thus, in Surah 3:52 of the Qur'an, Jesus’ disciples tell Jesus, "We believe in God; and you be our witness that we are Muslims (wa-shahad be anna muslimūn)." In Muslim belief, before the Qur'an, God had given the Torah to Moses, the Psalms to David and the Gospel to Jesus, who are all considered important Muslim prophets.


so still thinking to correct or not

the form on the new school that i need to fill up and submit on friday.

am i brave to nicely said what is a muslim and it is not a religion. religion is Islam.

ALLAH hu akhbar. Allah help me and give me courage....


Islam (Arabic: الإسلامal-’islām, pronounced [ʔɪsˈlæːm] ( listen)[note 1]) is the monotheistic religion articulated by the Qur’an, a text considered by its adherents to be the verbatim word of God (Arabic: الله‎, Allah), and by the teachings and normative example (called the Sunnah and composed of Hadith) of Muhammad, often considered by them to be the last prophet of God. In addition to referring to the religion itself, the word Islam means 'submission to God',[1] 'peace', and 'way to peace'.[2] An adherent of Islam is called a Muslim.
