Islam the Religion of Peace

Islam is a total surrender and obedience to God, called Allah in Islam. Muhammad (P.B.U.H) was born in Makkah, in 570 A.D. Orphaned at a very young age, raised by his uncle, Hazrat Abu Talib, and was recognized early for his wisdom, generosity and honesty.  Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) after time to time had went to the cave of Hira, near the “Mountain of Light” near Makkah. He was forty years old when, the Angel Gabriel appeared to him and delivered the first of what would become twenty-three years’ worth of revelations from God. Those revelations, given to Muhammad (P.B.U.H)  by God through the Angel Gabriel, became the miracle of the book called Holy Quran. Muhammad (P.B.U.H) passed away at the age of 63. Within a hundred years of his death, Islam had spread throughout Europe, and across Asia as far east as China. In Islam, the Bible, Torah, Christians and Jews deserve the respect and protection of all Muslims. The same respect and protection was extended to Buddhists of India and realized that, contrary to their first impression, the Buddhists and the Hindus weren’t idol-worshippers after all.

Muslims have a particular respect for Jesus, and never say His name without adding the “Hazrat/ Hadrat/ Peace Be upon Him” as sign of Respect.

The Holy book of Islam, the Quran refers to the perfect birth of Christ, acknowledges his miracles and his second coming. Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) himself said: Whoever believes there is no God but Allah, alone without partner, that Hazrat Muhammad (P.B.U.H) is his messenger, that Jesus is a servant and messenger of God, his worth breathed into Mary and a spirit emanating from him, and that Heaven and Hell are true, shall be received by God into Heaven.
