Islam is not a new religion and neither was it created by Muhammad. Islam is a monotheistic Abrahamic religion. The word Islām, from the triliteral root s-l-m, is derived from the Arabic verb Aslama, which means "to accept, surrender or submit." Thus, Islam means acceptance of and submission to the One God (Arabic: الله, Allāh) The God of Adam, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and all the other prophets including Muhammad. An adherent of Islam is known as a Muslim, meaning "one who submits (to God)"
