Islam (Arabic: الإسلام‎) is the complete and natural way of life that humanity is born upon and is naturally inclined to. Islam is the morality of Allah (God) demonstrated in the personality, character, actions, and traditions of the holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and taught in the speech of Allah, the holy Quran. Allah makes it clear in the Quran that he created man to worship him alone.

Most human beings, however, pervert away from this natural way of life through negative societal, family, and cultural influences.
