A brief description
What is the meaning of Islam?
The word Islam means voluntary “submission” or “surrender” to the Will of God. It derives from the root word “salam,” meaning peace.
In the Qur’an, God defines that the only purpose for which He created mankind is to Worship Him, Islam recognizes that humankind has free choice in whether they obey or disobey God, but ultimately we will be held accountable to God in the next life for the choices that we make in this life.
