The name of the religion is Islam, which comes from an Arabic root word meaning"peace" and "submission." Islam teaches that one can only find peace in one's life bysubmitting to Almighty God (Allah) in heart, soul and deed. The same Arabic root word gives us "Salaam alaykum," ("Peace be with you"), the universal Muslim greeting. Islam is not a new religion, but the same truth that God revealed through all His prophets to every people. For a fifth of the world's population, Islam is both a religion and a completeway of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the majority have nothing to do with the extremely grave events which have come to be associated with their faith. In Islam, faith and good worksgo hand-in-hand. A mere verbal declaration of faith is not enough, for belief in Allah makes obedience to Him a duty. The Muslim concept of worshipis very broad. Muslims consider everything they do in life to be an act of worship,if it is done according to Allah's guidance. There are also five formal acts of worship which help strengthen a Muslim's faith and obedience. They are often called the "Five Pillars of Islam." . Testimony of faith ( Shahaadah or Kalima ) . Prayer ( Salat ) . Almsgiving ( Zakat ) . Fasting ( Sawm ) *. Pilgrimage ( Hajj )

Islam is the religion given by god to all nations. God sent the angel Gabriel to Muhammad pbuh and over a span of 23 years gave the verses that make the Qur'an. The Qur'an is the final revelation given by god. This also fulfills gods promise to Abraham pbuh in earlier scripture. As prophet Muhammad pbuh is a descendant of Ishmael.

assalamu allaikum, lexically, the word islam is the verbal noun of the verb which means, he resigned, or submitted, himself. hence islam is the way or act of submitting and resigning oneself. muslim is the active participle of the verb meaning to submit. hence a muslim is one who submits.

Islamic tradition attributes the beginning of Mecca to Ishmael's descendants. In the 7th century, the Islamic prophet Muhammad proclaimed Islam in the city, by then an important trading center, and the city played an important role in the early history of Islam. After 966, Mecca was led by local sharifs, until 1924, when it came under the rule of the Saudis. In its modern period, Mecca has seen a great expansion in size and infrastructure.

Thanks!
