I'm a Muslim - What does that mean?

For those who know me - you know I'm a Muslim... and for those who are only acquainted with me then you may know that I'm a Muslim but you may not know much else about how I became Muslim (when, how, where, and why)... Well, it's a fairly long story but an interesting one and I'd be happy to share the story if you're interested in hearing it - just let me know!

What does it mean that I'm a Muslim? It's a good part of my identity - in short to be Muslim means to submit, surrender and obey in peace and sincerity to the will of God (Allah = One God). It means that I testify there is only One God and there is no one worthy of worship except God alone, and that Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) was the final messenger of God.

I know there are a LOT of misunderstandings and misconceptions about Muslims and Islam so I'd like to extend the offer to ask any and all questions you may have, at any time - there's an open door policy here when it comes to questions! If I don't know or have the answer that doesn't mean the answer doesn't exist - I'll just have to work on finding someone who does!
