For this brief introduction to Islam and Muslims, let’s begin with a few definitions. Islam can be defined as “peace through submission to God.” Muslim refers to “one who submits to God.” And the Arabic word Salaam simply means “peace.”

We believe that when everyone follow the laws of our creator willingly, then there is peace for self and everyone.
