Islam is the Deen which Allaah has sent Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) with; Allaah made it the last of religions and perfected it for His creation; He made it a completion of his Favours upon them and chose it to be their Deen; No other religion is accepted from anyone except the Deen of Islam.
"Muhammad(sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) is not the father of any man among you, but he is the messenger of Allaah, and the Last (end) of the Prophets." Noble Qur'an 
He also says:
"This day, I have perfected your religion for you, and completed my Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Al-Islam as your Deen." Noble Qur'an 
And His saying:
"Truly, the Deen before Allaah is Al-Islam." Noble Qur'an 
"And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. "Noble Qur'an 
Allah has ordained that mankind must submit to him in Islam. He said addressing His Messenger (Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)):
"Say (Oh Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)) 'O mankind! Verily, I am sent to you all as the messenger of Allah- to whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth. La ilaaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He); It is He who gives life and causes death. So believe in Allaah and His Messenger (Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)), the Prophet who can neither read nor write, who believes in Allaah and His Words, and follow him so that you may be guided.' " Noble Qur'an 
It is reported in Saheeh Muslim on the authority of Abu Hurairah (ra), that Allah’ s Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said:
By Him (Allah) in Whose Hand Muhammad’s soul is, there is none from amongst the Jews and the Christians (of these present nations) who hears about me and then dies without believing in the Message with which I have been sent (i.e. Tawheed), but he will be from the dwellers of the (Hell) Fire.
The belief in the Prophet Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) is the attestation with full acceptance and submission, not just mere attestation, that what he brought forth is the truth. That is why Abu Taalib (the uncle of the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) did not become a believer in the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam), despite his attestation to what the Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) brought forth and his witness that it is the best of religions.
The Deen of Islam embraces all of the human welfare that is comprised in the previous religions; it is distinguished above all religions in its suitability for all times, place, and nations. Allaah (t) addresses His Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) saying:
And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)) the Book (this Qur’aan) in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Muhayminan (trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (old Scripture). Noble Qur'an 
The suitability of the Deen means that adhering to Islam does not contradict the welfare of the Ummah (Muslim community at large) in any place or in any time. Indeed it is its betterment. This does not mean, however, that the Deen is subjugate to every time, place and Ummah as some people like it to be.
The Deen of Islam is the Deen of Truth, whoever truly adheres to it, Allaah guarantees him victory and makes him prevail on everyone else who doesn’t. Allaah (t) says:
He it is Who sent His Messenger (Muhammad (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam)) with guidance and the Deen of truth to make it prevail over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikeen hate (it) Noble Qur'an 
Allaah has promised, to those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the land, as He granted it to those before them; and that He will grant them the authority to practice their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqoun (rebellious, disobedient to Allaah). Noble Qur'an 
The Deen of Islam is ‘Aqeedah (Creed) and Sharee’ah (Legislation), and it is perfect in both. Islam commands:
1-The Tawheed and forbids Shirk (setting associates with Allaah).
2-Truthfulness, and forbids lying.
3-Justice, and forbids oppression.
4-Truthworthiness, and forbids treachery.
5-Faithfulness, and forbids betrayal.
6-To be good and dutiful to one’s parents, and forbids being disrespectful to them.
7-Keep ties with relatives of kinship, and forbids severing ties with them.
8-To have good relations with one’s neighborhood, and forbids all forms of ill-treatment to the neighbors.
Generally speaking, Islam commands all noble morals, and forbids all ill and despicable manners; it also commands righteousness and forbids wrong. Allaah (t) says:
Verily, Allaah enjoins Al-‘Adl (i.e. justice and worshipping none but Allaah) and Al-Ihsaan, and giving help to kith and kin, and forbids Al-Fahshaa’(2), Al-Mankar(3), and al-Baghy(4). Noble Qur'an 
(1) Published by 'The Message of Islam'
(2) Al-Fahshaa’ – all evil deeds, e.g. illegal lsexual intercourse, disobedience to parents, to tell lies, to steal, etc.
(3) Al-Mankar- All that is prohibited by Islamic Law: polytheism, disbelief, and every kind of evil deeds, etc.
(4) Al-Baghy: All kinds if oppression. http://www.therighteouspath.com/dawah/deen-of-islam.php
