What Is Islam?

The word "Islam" is an Arabic word which

means "submission to

the will of God". This word comes from the same root as the Arabic

word "salam", which means "peace". As such, the religion of Islam

teaches that in order to achieve true peace of mind and surety of

heart, one must submit to God and live according to His Divinely

revealed Law. The most important truth that God revealed to

mankind is that there is nothing divine or worthy of being

worshipped except for Almighty God, thus all human beings should

submit to Him
May we all submit to the will of God and love one another. Peace!

In Islam, when we say:" there is no God but Allah:", we, then, keep ourselves far from any human power that may humiliate us, betray us,or let us down

this is the wonderful feature of Islam: to be connected to one power that has all the potentialities, and that it is with you whenever, wherever you are...

my best wishes to all
I prefer a good bottle of Cabernet and the company of an intelligent independent woman.


Joys are two types, tao: temporary and lasting.

Some people think that happiness depends on others wether persons or objects. Yet, happiness is internal, and depends on how much you can live without depending on others. In other words, a person who enjoys real happiness says: "I can be happy even if I am alone. My heart is my paradise." And the heart who is in good connection with God is the happiest heart on earth.
