Thank you for this clear explanation on what Muslim means.

Let us all remember that Jesus was not a Christian, Buddha was not a Buddhist. We need to not follow the followers but to follow the original teaching.
In Christianity and Islam we have people who identify themselves as being followers of these religions but do not follow the teachings of Christ or of Mohamed, peace be upon them. They bring shame on the names of Christ and Mohammed, peace be upon them, and shame on their fellow Christians and Muslims. They create misunderstanding and war and misery.

If we all took the trouble to understand the religions and beliefs of others and what all great religions have in common we could change the world.
As the world is now, full of blind mindless hatred and fear of "the other" may the great Creator have mercy on us all.
