Islamism is the Monotheistic Religion - believing in one God. The word Islam is derived from the word Salam meaning peace. But it also means Submission. The people who follow Islam consider that who follows Islam agrees to abide by both body and mind by the will of God. Those following this path are known as Muslims. Islam is one of the latest originated religions - one which came into picture after Christianity. Muslims believe that the Gods Message to the Mankind has been a series of PROPHETS. Prophet Muhammed is the main Ideologist and Apostle of God.

Muhammed who is considered to be the main Prophet of Muslims, was the son of Abdulla and Amna and was born on 20 th April of 571 B.C. His parents died at a young age and he was brought up by his Uncle Abu Talib. On attaining maturity, he took up his Uncles business of Carvan. During one such business Trip he married a widow girl ( 15 years of age ) named Kjadija. After some years, he began to loose interest in life. For seclusion, he used to go cave in the outskirts of Meccan. One day as he was praying in Mount Hira, a angel came and asked him to : Proclaim". This was the beginning of the Prophet Mohammed. Slowly and gradually, in the city of Madina, on July 16th, 622 A.D., he established himself as the Prophet of God.

By the time, Muhammed died in 632 A.D., he has virtually all the Arab under his Garb. The teachings and Sayings of Muhammed are revered as the Sacred Teachings of Muhammed all over the world.
