Here is the definition of Muslim as I understand it from the Quran:

- One who has faith in the God alone,
- and does good deeds

According to this definition anybody no matter what they call themselves (Deist, Nazerene, Jew, Muslim, etc.) who satisfies the above two conditions is a Muslim.

Satisfying the first criteria is more difficult than it sounds because the key is the God alone with no partners. Here is the fundamental question everyone needs to ask. Does the Lord of the universes need Moses, Jesus, Mohamed, the clergy, or any other partner to exist in my heart?
