Answer A

Islam is an Arabic word that means submission and surrender to God. In this sense Islam began by the universe creation where all God creatures were created under their submission (Islam) to God. Upon start of mankind, they are taught through God prophets to be on full submission (Islam) to God. All prophet missions; including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, was to hold submission (Islam) to the one and only one God, the Creator.

In this sense:
  • Islam per God revelation of Torah to Moses is called Judaism.
  • Islam per God revelation of the bible to Jesus is called Christianity.
  • Islam per God revelation of Quran to Muhammad is called the very name Islam.

Islam religion per Quran revelation to prophet Muhammad began in year 610 AD by God revelation of first verses of Quran to prophet Muhammad through the angel Gabriel (Jibril).

Islam is the religion given to mankind by Almighty God. It came into existence with the first man stepping on the earth. Hazrat Adam (AS) was the first Muslim and first Prophet of Islam. All the Prophets (May peace be upon them all) had been teaching/preaching Islam. The last prophet of Islam Hazrat Muhammad (May peace be upon him) was born in Mecca, Arabia, in 570 AD. The country is now known as The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He started preaching Islam in 610 when he was 40.
