I am Mouslim too from Pakistan. Assalam o Alaykum my dear Muslim brother and hello my all Mylot friends. Islam means "Peace" and Muslim means "Peaceful" who ensure the peace all around him/her all the people around him/her. But he is also responsible to prohibit them who are willing to destroy the Peace of the world and part of the world where he is living.

Islam means submission to God's will. there are five pillars of Islam. 1st pillar is shahada(i testify that there is no God but Allah and i testify that Muhammad(pbuh) is the messenger of Allah. 2nd pillar-salah which means offering prayers 5 times a day. 3rd pillar-fasting in the month of ramazan. 4th-zakath or charity. 5th-pilgrimage to Makkah (4th and 5th pillars are optional for those who cant afford) Salam is a greeting which means peace. when you say Assalam aleikum(greeting) it means peace be upon you. the other person will greet back Walekum assalam which means peace be upon you too.
