Islam is one of the three major Abrahamic religions [W], sharing much of its mythology with Christian and Jewish scripture (the former of which uses the latter essentially as a starting point) and specifically mentioning the Christian mythical martyr Jesus Christ in at least one of its scriptural works (inscriptions on the Dome of the Rock [W]).


Believers in Islam are known as "Muslims".


main articles: /violence (by and against), /terrorism (by)

Like any major religion, Islam has a long history of violent extremism. There is similarly a long history of Western violence against Muslims.

  • The Historic Contributions of Islam "My point is that Islam has stifled a culture, benighted a large region of the world, and quelled an entire people into a rerun of the dark ages. It has done this by successfully smothering freedom, repressing new thoughts and ideas and quelling all individuality. It has effectively prevented a large portion of the world from seeing any forward progress for over half a millennium. ... This is reminiscent of the way in which the Catholic faith inhibited science during its early years."
