36 Common Misconceptions of Islam * Muslims are Violent, Terrorists, and Extremists This is the biggest misconception due to stereotypes and the media. Violence is always linked to Islam, however the acts of others should not be based on an entire faith. * Islam oppresses Women. Many Muslim countries do have laws that oppress woman, however they are not ruled by Islamic law. The Qur'an includes the different roles of men and women, and a balance between the two. Corina Lopez

37 * Muslims worship a different God 'Allah' is the Arabic word for God. It is their word of preference to call their God. Muslims, Christians, and Jews worship the same God. * All Muslims are Arabs One out of five people in the World are Muslim. They all come from different races, nationalities, and cultures. * Muhammad was the founder of Islam and Muslims worship him. Muslims honor him for his struggles and dedication to deliver the message of God. He was the last messenger of the message, but is not the founder of Islam. Corina Lopez
