  1. Muslim

    A Muslim, also spelled Moslem, is an adherent of Islam, a monotheistic Abrahamic religion based on the Qur'an—which Muslims consider the verbatim word of God as revealed to prophet Muhammad—and, with lesser authority than the Qur'an, the teachings and practices of Muhammad as recorded in traditional accounts, called hadith. "Muslim" is an Arabic word meaning "one who submits to God". Muslims believe that there is no other God but the one true God who is referred to with the name Allah. God is eternal, transcendent, absolutely one, and incomparable; that he is self-sustaining, who begets not nor was begotten. Muslim beliefs regarding God are summed up in chapter 112 of the Qur'an, al-Ikhlas, "the chapter of purity". Muslims also believe that Islam is the complete and universal version of a primordial faith that was revealed at many times and places before, including through the prophets Abraham, Moses and Jesus. Muslims maintain that previous messages and revelations have been partially changed or corrupted over time, but consider the Qur'an to be both unaltered and the final revelation from God—Final Testament. 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." They also believe that Muhammad is the Seal of the Prophets and the final prophet. Their basic religious practices are enumerated in the Five Pillars of Islam, which, in addition to Shahadah, consist of daily prayers, fasting during Ramadan, almsgiving, and the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in a lifetime.

Examples of Muslim in a Sentence

  1. Ibrahim Hooper:

    We are seeing I think a more toxic anti-Muslim environment or atmosphere than we have seen since 9/11, in some ways it’s worse because it’s been mainstreamed by public figures like Donald Trump or Ben Carson so it’s seen as a natural, normal kind of thing.

  2. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas:

    The continuation of the occupation and violations to Muslim and Christian sites in East Jerusalem may open the gates to a religious conflict, we must maintain the historical condition and not the status quo imposed by Israel.

  3. Nile Gardiner:

    Undoubtedly this report will embarrass The Obama administration because the White House has gone out of its way to try to appease the Muslim Brotherhood, and so this report I think dramatically undercuts the Obama presidency’s weak-kneed approach on this matter.

  4. Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukry:

    There are certainly members of the Muslim Brotherhood who are in prison, who are facing trial for having perpetrated actions or activities that are not within the confines of the law, we are doing so in the context of a judicial system without any resort to any extra-judicial measures.

  5. Christopher Cornell:

    What would I have done? I would have took my gun, I would have put it to Obama's head and I would have pulled the trigger, then I would have released more bullets on the Senate and the House of Representative members, and I would have attacked the Israeli Embassy and various other buildings full of kafir (a Muslim term for infidel) who want to wage war against us Muslims and shed our blood. That's what would happen.
