The people who follow this religion are known as ‘Muslims’ which means those persons who have a perfect belief in Allah and His prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H). Muslims believe that Islam is the perfect religion to be followed and we should all submit our wills to Allah. The religion Islam is comprised of various rules and regulations which act as a law for its believers and followers. Those persons who have a proper faith in the guidance set by the holy book Quran are said to be as followers of Islam. Islam educates its followers to live their lives according to the set of rules given in the holy book.
