  • A Muslim, sometimes spelled Moslem, is an adherent of Islam, a monotheistic Abrahamic religion based on the Quran. Muslims consider the Quran to be the verbatim word of God as revealed to prophet Muhammad. They also follow the teachings and practices of Muhammad as recorded in traditional accounts called hadith. "Muslim" is an Arabic word meaning "one who submits to God". A female Muslim is sometimes called a "Muslimah". Muslims believe that God is eternal, transcendent and absolutely one. They hold that God is incomparable, self-sustaining and neither begets nor was begotten. They also believe that Islam is the complete and universal version of a primordial faith that has been revealed before through many prophets including Abraham, Moses, Ishmael and Jesus. Muslims also believe that these previous messages and revelations have been partially changed or corrupted over time and that the Qur'an is the final unaltered revelation from God. Most Muslims accept as a Muslim anyone who has publicly pronounced the Shahadah which states: I testify that there is no god except for the God, and I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of God.
