Understanding Islam

Here is a good short article introducing the basics of Islam: The Four Faces of Islam

Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam, founded the first Muslim community (the ummah) in Medina, Saudi Arabia during the years 622-632 A.D. upon revelations received from Allah in heaven by means of an angel, Gabriel. Muhammad was prophet, judge, leader, and commander-in-chief of the community of Muslims. Islam meant submission to the straight path of Allah and to follow Muhammad as the final prophet.
