WELCOME TO DISCOVER ISLAM
  Allah (God)
Islam is the complete submission and obedience to Allah (God). The name Allah (God) in Islam never refers to Muhammad (peace be upon him), as many Christians may think; Allah is the personal name of God.

What do Muslims believe about Allah?
1. He is the one God, Who has no partner.
2. Nothing is like Him. He is the Creator, not created, nor a part of His creation.
3. He is All-Powerful, absolutely Just.
4. There is no other entity in the entire universe worthy of worship besides Him.

Islamic Month
  Safar

The word Safar means "whistling of the wind". As most of the months were named according to weather conditions, at the time when this name was assigned it was probably a windy time of the year. However, being a lunar calendar, the months shift about 11 days every year so, the seasons do not necessarily correspond to the name of the month anymore.
