Islam Fact file
Muslims are people who follow the teachings of the religion of Islam. The words "Islam" and "Muslim" both mean "submission". Therefore, a Muslim is someone who has completely devoted to God.
Islam began in the part of the world called the Middle East. Many Muslims still live here, although you can now find Muslims living in almost every country in the world. There are about 1000 million followers of Islam. Islam is growing much faster than any other religion in the world. The reason Islam is such a widely spread religion is because it spread by fighting different countries. But this is not the only reason; Islam spread throughout the world because Muslims were traders, and they travelled all over the world to buy and sell goods. Where they travelled, they took their religion with them. Muslims became well known for living good lives, and many people who met them, were so impressed that they decided to convert themselves and follow the teachings of Islam.
Muslims believe in one God who they call Allah. They believe that Allah was never born or never died. He simply made everything, knows everything
