:bulletred: What is Islam?

The word Islam is an Arabic word meaning total submission to the Will of the God and obedience to His Law. Only through submission to the will of the God and by obedience to His Law can peace be achieved.
The proper name of the religion is Islam and its followers are properly called Muslims. The Muslims prefer calling the almighty God with His Name Allah, instead of the English word ‘God’. The Arabic word Allah is pure and unique, unlike the English word God which can be played around with.

If you add ‘s’ to God, it becomes ‘gods’ that is plural of God. Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If you add ‘dess’ to God, it becomes ‘‘goddess’ that is a female God. There is nothing like male Allah or female Allah. Allah has no gender. If you add father to God, it becomes godfather’. “He is my Godfather” means that “he is my guardian”. There is nothing like ‘Allah Abba’ or ‘Allah father’ in Islam. If you add mother to God it becomes ‘godmother’, there is nothing like ‘Allah Ammi’ or ‘Allah Mother’ in Islam. If you put tin before God, it becomes tin-god i.e. a fake God, there is nothing like ‘tin Allah’ or ‘fake Allah’ in Islam. Allah is a unique word, which does not conjure up any mental picture nor can it be played around with. Hence, the Muslims prefer the name Allah when referring to the Almighty Creator. But sometimes while speaking to non-Muslims we may have to use the inappropriate word God for Allah.


The Will of Allah, as defined in His Revealed Guidance to all His Prophets, is good and compassionate, and His Law is the most beneficent and equitable. The religion of Islam is the complete acceptance of and compliance with the teachings and guidance of almighty God as revealed in His Last sacred Book, the Qur'an, to His messenger Mohammed -peace be upon him-, the final prophet of Islam.

The religion of Islam lays great emphasis on uncompromising monotheism and strict adherence to certain creeds and acts of worship. It enjoins submitting to the Will of the God and following the exemplary way of life of Mohammed -peace be upon him-, the guide and teacher of mankind.


:bulletred: Islam: Continuity of Divine Messages:

Islam is not a new religion. It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which the almighty God revealed to all prophets before Prophet Mohammed -peace be upon him-. Allah says in the final testament:
In the name of the God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful,
قُلْ آمَنَّا بِاللَّهِ وَمَا أُنزِلَ عَلَيْنَا وَمَا أُنزِلَ عَلَىٰ إِبْرَاهِيمَ وَإِسْمَاعِيلَ وَإِسْحَاقَ وَيَعْقُوبَ وَالْأَسْبَاطِ وَمَا أُوتِيَ مُوسَىٰ وَعِيسَىٰ وَالنَّبِيُّونَ مِن رَّبِّهِمْ لَا نُفَرِّقُ بَيْنَ أَحَدٍ مِّنْهُمْ وَنَحْنُ لَهُ مُسْلِمُونَ
Say, "We have believed in Allah and in what was revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Descendants, and in what was given to Moses and Jesus and to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and to the God we are Muslims [submitting]."

translation of 3:84

Anyone know a good English translation of the Qu'ran so no one can say to me "Oh, you read the wrong translation of the Qu'ran! No wonder you don't understand it!" and stuff like that.

Is the translation of Dr. Muhammed Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali ok with Muslims? Or Mohammed Marmaduke Pickthal? I really don't want to make the efford of reading the thing and then discovering I read the "wrong" Qu'ran...

if anyone gives you an English copy of the Qur'an, you should always recognize that in fact what they have given you is a copy of the rendering of the meanings of the Qur'an into English based on the understanding of the translator, and not the Qur'an itself.
Of course, as with any translation, the hand of the translator is always present. That is why you will find that translations are different.

Sadly, all translations have shortcomings. All have mistakes. there is no perfect translation.
Commentary and footnotes are a plus in any translation. because they help you learn about the context of the verses and give you additional information about certain issues. the best way to understand the Qur'an well is reading more than one translation and compare between them to get the closest meanings. sometimes, you may need to ask a Muslim for further explanations because a Muslim may be able to get hold of credible references. therefore, don't feel shy to ask any Muslims you know when you encounter certain verses that need more details.

Here [link] you can find different translations.

remember, when you are reading the Qur'an in any language other than Arabic, you are not reading Qur'an. you are reading a translation. the Qur'an is only the original.

Good luck.

Peace

Wonderful! I love all of your work, you're a very talented and dynamic artist, I admire how the spirit of Islam is in all of your work and it is cheerful and fun! MashaAllah. :) Do you do any commission work? I'm a recruiter for a publishing company called New Medina Kids based in the U.S. and we're looking for an artist to create a cover for a book about salaah.

I'm just saying, He's not telling you to be a part of the religion. Just to learn about it so you at least know what its about before you bash it. And again, you chose to view this deviation, he didn't send it to you. There is a back button.

"Let's learn about it" is soft way to say "Come and be part of my religion". Religion should be everyones personal thing, and still I think that if some1 want to learn something about it will find every info he need without any problems. Oh and I chose to view this deviation because of art, but since I saw "the message" it made me sad.

well just as you said, if you want to learn about it, you look it up. He is just providing his time and art to teach those who are interested.

I don't see why you should be sad about the message. I don't understand other atheists immediate hate for religions. It just makes some of us look bad.

I don't hate religions. Religions are nessesary in our world. Without them people wouldnt have any reasons to live and that = madnes and chaos. I hate people that promote religions and force people to join them. I hate people who are telling others that they should try or at leat know about their religion because this and that. Even if its in really soft way like this deviation.

Oh get over yourself. He is trying to teach tolerance, if you understand these religions you can learn to get along with these people and not believe lies, propaganda, ext because you actually have educated yourself. He is not asking anyone to convert. If you happen to like and believe the teachings and WANT and CHOOSE to convert that's all on you. But if you choose to be uneducated then that is your own doing. No one forced you to come here, just like no one is forcing you to learn about Islam.  You chose to and that is your right

Have a splendid day.

Seriously, er... He did this in his own page, and you choose to be here and read all those things lol. So you can't blame him by saying he's rude for explaining his religion.

You know what... You sounded more like an ignorant person. And a little butthurt atheist I see.

Don't confuse 'god' with 'God'. While very similar they are in fact different.
This is more evident and clear in the Greek language.

From Cover to cover? or the priest selects what to read?

also, Do people try to do effort to read it in Greek by themselves?

Over the course of time, it would be read cover to cover. A different part is read each day. And so it goes over and over again <3

As for individuals, I'm not sure. I have met some who do, yes ^^

Yeah but that's the problem with religion...unfortunately many religious people are forcing their believes and rules on other people...the ones who don't are intelligent and kind enough to not do that but I don't think they believe every word of their holy books anyway. I have a lot of lovely Christian friends but they basically neglect everything violent and harsh that's written in the Bible and say "Well it's because of the times they lived in, we can't apply that to todays world." Fundamentalists are different...they're the ones that go crazy when somethings going against their believes/holy book/god and unfortunately there are quite a view of those out there. I can't think of any Christian incident of that magnitude (I don't want to sound biased, but I'm an atheist anyway, so it's kinda all the same to me anyway) but just think about the rage and violence of fundamentalist Muslims everytime anyone says anything against their prophet Muhammed. I mean that's just ridiculous. And Christians and other religious people can be just as violent. And those people are violent because of their religion, so it's not to each his own when people get harmed and oppressed and killed because of it. I mean what's with oppressing women in Islamic countries. Here's a tweet I read the other day: "One of my reasons for being an atheist: I can truly be an emancipated woman without apology. Unlike my Muslim upbringing." I haven't read the Qur'an yet (I'm definitely going to) but I trust that a woman raised with that religion knows what she's talking about. So yeah...if all that oppression and violence in the name of religion wasn't going on I could easily say "To each his own." Unfortunately that's not the case.

I find your comment here ridiculous especially coming from someone who did not read their my religious book.
May I ask you to prove to me how I, as a Muslim who does not force his belief and rules on others, do not believe every word of my holy book?

When exactly did I say I don't think you don't believe every single word of your holy book? I was talking about my friends who believe in the Bible. If they believed all of the Bible they would have to stone people who are working on the shabbat day and stuff like that. They don't do that, so I don't think they believe in everything the Bible says. If the Qu'ran said anything of that extend (which I'm gonna find out when I read it) and you don't do as it says, then I would think the same is true for you. I don't see what's ridiculous about that. If people don't do every single thing their holy book tells them then I presume they don't believe in every single thing their holy book tells them. But as I said, I was talking about my friends and not about you. I will know for sure after I've read the Qu'ran. I read the Bible by the way so I know for sure my friends don't believe in the whole thing, otherwise they would be killing people for the tiniest sins. Hence they're not fundamentalists who believe absolutely every word of their holy book.
