“Surely those who believe and those who are Jews and the Sabeans and the Christians and the Magians and those who associate (others with Allah) – surely Allah will decide between them on the day of resurrection; surely Allah is a witness over all things.”
(The Qur’an [22.17])

“Surely those who believe, and those who are Jews, and the Christians, and the Sabians, whoever believes in Allah and the Last day and does good, they shall have their reward from their Lord, and there is no fear for them, nor shall they grieve.”
(The Qur’an [2.62])

Islam is not a new religion, but the same truth that God revealed through all His prophets to every people.
According to those verses of the Qur’an, mentioned above, if you are Jewish or Christian you are Muslim as long as you do God’s will.
A Muslim is an adherent of Islam, it can be translate by “one who submits (to God)”.
Muslims believe in a chain of prophets starting with Adam and including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Elias, Jonah, John the Baptist, and Jesus, “peace be upon them”.
The ten commandments from the Torah are in the Qur’an, and Islam holds the belief that Mohamed was the one Jesus predicted would finish the prophesies (temple and Kaaba) that where expected of the Messiah, himself, although Judaic prophesies disagree with any mesiah who performed miracles.

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 have nothing to do with all events which have come to be associated with their faith.
