Can any muslims give me a "rundown" of the muslim faith?

You're going to have to be more specific. Islam, in its most basic form, is believe that there is no God but the God of Abraham, there was a lineage of prophets including Jesus (peace be upon him), who is just a prophet and not divine or the son of God. Of this lineage, Muhammad (pbuh) is the last, with his final revelation that is the direct incorruptible word of God that supercedes the Old and New Testaments and all revelations prior. This relevation is called the Quran and was told to Muhammad (pbuh) from God through the angel Gabriel.

I'm curious: how would you (TC) respond if someone made this exact topic, word for word, but replaced "muslim" with "christian"?

Yes, I figured it was implied in my question that you'd be answering them and not just skipping the topic. My question was about how you would respond, not what you would do.

On a serious note... I would say:

God created the world.
God gave a rule.
Man broke the rule and sinned against God for the first time, and ultimately severed the relationship between man and God.
God uses various people through a period of years in order to bring Him glory and to teach "us" various things about life and situations.
It becomes clear that man is unable to follow God for any long period of time without stumbling into sin.
God eventually sends Jesus Christ in order to restore the relationship with man and God.
Jesus lives a perfect life, but is still persecuted by the Jews and hated.
Jesus takes the sins of the elect onto the Cross with Him.
3 days later, Jesus rises again, ultimately defeating death with death's own weapon and setting the captives free.
Jesus appears to many and says He will return again and rises into heaven.
Various missionaries go out in order to spread the news about Jesus Christ.
Book of Revelations.

That is prolly the most basic rundown I can give. Now I'm asking for one in return.

A perfect life, yet the bible thought it was unnecessary to say anything about that perfect life besides his childhood and death? That's something that's always interested me.
