Six Hundred years after Christianity came Islam with the advent of a new and final Prophet; Muhammad (peace be upon him). He was chosen by the Lord, as were his predecessors and Brother Prophets Jesus, Moses, Jacob, Isaac and Abraham (peace be upon them all) before him, to convey the divine message which he received through revelation in the form of the Holy Quran.
Their Mission and objective was a common mission, to guide mankind to the best way of life and allegiance to the one, True God.
Islam is not merely a religion but a complete way of life, a promoter of peace and tolerance. A Muslim is he who regardless of colour, creed, race, and nationality gives allegiance, obedience and loyalty to Allah, to God, The Lord of the Universe.
The world is home to over one billion Muslims of various nationalities, languages and ethnic origins. In the UK alone there are around 2 million Muslims.
