Introduction to Islam

Islam means “submission.” Muslim means “one who submits.”

They have NEVER been separated. Islam never took over Muslims, they have always been in unity. In the 7th century Mohammad coined the Arabic term “Islam” (submission) as the political military entity of his cult and “Muslim” (someone who submits) for his followers. Mohammad originally had less than 50 followers that led to 100 followers, that led to thousands. To grow the numbers of his followers he took jihadi measures by forced submission to Islam – under the sword. Conquering villages by death or submission to Islam, his Muslim followers adhered to his measures of brutality and genocide. In an early jihad military force, Mohammad killed over 600 Jews- beheading them himself, as an example to his followers – all in the name of Allah.

For those confused of the basics of Islam and to give you more wisdom and insight into this threat to our nation, I have condensed some key points from “ISLAM 101″ by author Gregory M. Davis.

1. The Basics

a. The Five Pillars of Islam

The five pillars of Islam constitute the most basic tenets of the religion. They are:

1. Faith (iman) in the oneness of Allah and the finality of the prophethood of Muhammad (indicated by the declaration [the Shahadah] that, “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”).

2. Keeping of the five scheduled daily prayers (salah).

3. Almsgiving (zakat).

4. Fasting (sawm).

5. Pilgrimage (hajj) to Mecca for those who are able.

The five pillars in and of themselves do not tell us a lot about the faith or what a Muslim is supposed to believe or how he should act. To understand Islam and what it means to be a Muslim, we must come to understand Muhammad as well as the revelations given through him by Allah, which make up the Quran.

b. The Quran — the Book of Allah

According to Islamic teaching, the Quran came down as a series of revelations from Allah through the Archangel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad, who then dictated it to his followers. Muhammad’s companions memorized fragments of the Quran and wrote them down on whatever was at hand, which were later compiled into book form under the rule of the third Caliph, Uthman, some years after Muhammad’s death. The Quran is about as long as the Christian New Testament. It comprises 114 suras (chapters), not to be confused with the Sira, which refers to the life of the Prophet. The Quran comes exclusively from one source: Muhammad. It is through the life of Muhammad that the Quran must be understood, as the Quran itself says. His wars and killings both reflect and inform the meaning of the Quran. Furthermore, the strict literalism of the Quran means that there is no room for interpretation when it comes to its violent injunctions. It is through the example of the warlord and despot Muhammad that Muslims understand the Quran.
