Islam means peace and submission to the will of God. Islam is a religion which asks its believers to submit themselves to a life of peace and harmony with all of creation.
Islam enjoins respect for all Prophets beginning with Adam and ending with Muhammad. Muslims accept the Holy Qur’an as the Message of God and a standing miracle that never ceases to provide wonders to the reader. Muhammad’s deeds and communications which are termed Sunnahare recorded in the Hadith, which is the second source of Islamic teachings. Islam asks of Muslims to pray five times daily. During the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims fast from dawn to dusk, and this is believed to lead to increased patience, willpower and self discipline. In addition to the observance of the end of Ramadan, or otherwise known as Hari Raya Aidilfitri, Hari Raya Haji or the Festival of Sacrifice is significant in the Muslim almanac as well.
