Many people think it means people with Middle Eastern heritage when a Muslim is actually ANY person that follows the religion of Islam. The person can be of any race, can be from any country, etc. Ignorance is bliss.

"Muslim" is an Arabic word meaning "one who submits (to God)". A female Muslim is sometimes called a Muslimah. There are customs holding that a man and woman or teenager and adolescent above the age of fifteen of a lunar or solar calendar who possesses the faculties of rationality, logic or sanity, but misses numerous successive Jumu'ahs* without a valid excuse, no longer qualifies as a Muslim.
