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 complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the majority has nothing to do with the extremely. The Arabic world ‘Islam’ simply means ‘submission’, and derives from a word meaning ‘peace’. In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of God.
