What is another word for mohammedan?

Pronunciation: [mə͡ʊhˈamɪdən] (IPA)

The term "Mohammedan" has been traditionally used as a synonym to refer to Muslims, but it is considered outdated and inaccurate. In fact, several alternative terms have gained popularity in recent years, including 'Islamic,' 'Muslim,' and 'Muhammadan.' The term 'Islamic' refers to anything relating to Islam, while 'Muslim' is a person who belongs to the religion of Islam. 'Muhammadan' is a term used by some scholars to emphasize the importance of Prophet Muhammad in Islam. Other alternatives include 'followers of Islam,' 'believers in Islam,' or simply 'Muslims.' These terms are more accurate and respectful to the Muslim community, replacing "Mohammedan" with a more inclusive language.
