What is the difference between “Muslim” and “Islam”?


The words Islam and Muslim are terms that are used to describe the religion started by Prophet Mohammad. Islam refers more on the religion and the act of surrendering to Allah, while the term Muslim talks about the person who is following the belief or teaching of the religion. In short, Islam is used to describe the religion itself as well as some of its cultural practices and concepts, while Muslim is used to term only the followers of the Islam religion.
