'Islam' from the root 'slm' means to 'Submit' 'Surrender' 'Obedience' to the Will of God. Also means 'Peace' indirectly.
The principle belief is that 'There is only One God, indivisible in essence'.
And Islam teaches that by 'Faith' alone one cannot be saved, but 'faith' has to go hand in hand with deeds.
Meaning: Just to believe in God isn't enough but to prove the 'Faith' through action and deeds. So did the Prophet said:
'Faith should be conformed with deeds, and deeds to be in conformation with 'Faith'".
So, once one is committed to this believe he/she should begin to style and shape his life in conformity with his/her faith.
The foundation of Islam is the '5 pillars':
1) Believe in One God, Allah; and to believe in prophet Muhammad as His last Prophet and Messenger, known as the 'Shahada'( which alone incorporates the 6 articles of 'Faith' within it as explained at the bottom)
2) Observe 5 obligatory prayers a day at different times each lasting for less than 10 minutes each.
3) Observe fasting in the month of Ramadan;
4) Zakat (Obligatory Communal Charity/ Purifying Tax) Paid to the poor in community if one is financially wealthy.
5) Haj- Perform at least once in a lifetime pilgrimage to Mecca, if financially and physically fit.
The 6 Articles of Faith in Islam:
1) To believe in One God
2) To believe in all angels, example Arch Angel Gabriel, Michael, etc. etc. know and unknown.
3)To believe in all known religious scriptures, example Torah, Psalms, Gospel, and the Quran , and others known and unknown, but to believe that only Quran alone remains free from interpolation.
4)To believe in all prophets from Adam down to Jesus and Muhammad, the 5 great being Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them all).
5)To believe in Resurrection of the dead and Judgment'.
6) To believe in 'Predestination'; that is to believe that all that shall happen either individually in a person or collectively as a whole from Day 1, has been pre-recorded in the Book of Life with God.
(Though this is the case, it is forbidden to rely upon 'pre-destination and stay dumb without action).
In contrast with Christianity, Islam rejects 'Trinity' but:
Islam believes that Jesus was not killed on the cross.
Islam says that Jesus is not God but a prophet.
Islam believes in the immaculate conception of Jesus.
Islam believes in the miracles performed by Jesus.
Islam believes that Jesus is the Christ.
Islam believes that Jesus is the by product of the 'Word' of God.
Islam believes in the body and soul ascension of Jesus.
Islam believes that Jesus is alive up in the heavens.
Islam believes that Jesus will come back in his second coming.
Islam believes in Anti Christ.
Islam believes in the Armageddon.
Islam believes in Doomsday.
Islam believes in the Resurrection of the dead.
Islam believes in the Day of Judgement.
Islam believes in the Heaven, Hell and also in Eternal Life.

There are no colors in Islam, we are all creations of Allah and He created whoever He wills and He gives each one of us the colors and the shape He chooses. We are all slaves of God and God alone. Have you read the Quran? You should, and see for yourself and live the true amazing moments of getting to know your creator. Allah is not a man nor is he a woman, there is no one like him. He is all knowing, all powerful, all merciful, he is in no need of anyone and we need him the most. Ask him for guidance and he will guide you. know that Allah said in the Quran if you ask me for guidance I will guide you. I Ask Allah to open your heart and show you the right path.
You can start watching videos from Muslim scholars, In the following video, this scholar is an ex-white Christian who converted to Islam, he is giving a lecture about the purpose of your life. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_B2qtVeIT...
One final thing don't die before you have made that decision of worshiping God alone and not having any associates with him.

There's lots of white Muslims, but they don't get "closer to God". That's Christian/Catholic concern. A Muslim worships Allah who is quite a different creature, not the same as God at all.

Originally Answered: People consider America a Christian Nation because the majority are Christian?
Contrary to what many would have you believe, the Founding Fathers did NOT intend for the United States to be a Christian theocracy. Quite the opposite in fact, since freedom of religion is arguably the MOST important element of any free and democratic society. And religious freedom cannot exist without the separation of church and state.
Most of the Founding Fathers believed in God, but many (including Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson) were deists - they had serious reservations about organized religion in general, and specifically Christianity. Paine once wrote, "of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is none more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory in itself, than this thing called Christianity."
Many believe that the U.S. was founded on Christian principles, but this was simply not the case. John Adams addressed this assertion directly in the Treaty of Tripoli (1796): "The government of the United States of America is not in any sense founded on the Christian Religion."
As Thomas Jefferson put it, “I am for freedom of religion, & against all maneuvres to bring about a legal ascendancy of one sect over another.” This is precisely why Christian-themed icons & groups need to stay out of government institutions – because their inclusion marginalizes the non-Christian citizens of a country in which “all men are created equal.”
The freedom to worship (or not) as we choose is one of the things that makes the U.S. a GREAT place to live.
