بِسْم الله الرحمن الرحيم – In the name of God most gracious most merciful
The word Islam in Arabic can mean two things, Islam from “Istislam” which means submission. Or Islam from “Salam” which means peace. Therefore, scholars say that Islam is submitting your will to God.
Moreover, Muslims believe that Allah (God) is the creator of everything; and everything else is his creation. Allah gave human beings what no other being has, a choice. Freedom to do right or wrong, to do good or bad; to obey or to disobey he who created us. Additionally, good is from God and is whatever leads to god, and evil is whatever goes against god. Destruction, corruption, and war are man-made products. Happen because human beings tried legislating themselves. God has sent messengers to deliver his guidance to us, to guide us. One massage, different prophets to different tribes and times. Massage is: To submit to and worship God alone and to believe in the messenger.
“God does not born or die. Who has no beginning or end. Does not need to become human, animal to understand his creation. He is the creator who knows what he has created. He is the most wise. So, he knows everything. He feeds everyone, but he doesn’t need to eat or sleep or use toilet. True god is the creator who is not part of the creation. So, he has no father, mother, wife or children. He is above all & unique. There’s none like him & he is only one. Who has no parents and no gender. So, he is the creator of all creation & not part of his creation. That is the definition of one true god in Islam which is Allah “الله”. Allah has created humans in pairs of male and female to worship him & in different colors, languages, countries to respect & recognize each other. Everything that begins to exist has a purpose. Purpose of use is not to just eat, poo, have sex & sleep. Purpose of life is to obey & worship the creator because humans are the most superior of creation and our purpose is to serve god by praising & praying. No one is superior whether you are black or white, Arab or non Arab, male or female. For god everyone is equal. Islam is the only religion that is against racism. Allah is the most just & God judges you by your heart only not by your looks. Islam is an accurate, just & peaceful religion of one god, creator, lord Allah.” – (Mr. Faisal Fahim)
Islam is an Abrahamic monotheistic religion. Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) is the last and final messenger of the creator. After Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus (peace be upon them all). The reason is because of how we are, the creator knows his creation better than the creation know about themselves. Hence, The message and the guidance needed time to be fulfilled. Prophet Muhammed PBUH came as mercy to whom mankind. Allah almighty blessed prophet Muhammed with the holy Quran (revelation). Therefore, The Quran is the literal miraculous word of God that was revealed to prophet Muhammed PBUH by angel Gabriel. Hence, the best guidance is the guidance of Allah and the best role model is prophet Muhammed PBUH.
- Why are we here?
- Where did we come from?
- What happens after death?
Religion answers questions that can’t be answered by science. We can’t know about the unknown except what God has revealed for us. Allah is the uncaused cause that created the universe, the heavens and the earth, the sun and the moon. In other words, The more we advance in fields of science the more we know about God’s majesty and greatness.
I am not a scholar or a scientist, I am but a student. Whatever I get right is from God, and whatever I get wrong is from myself, and the devil. I pray that Allah forgives us, and guide us to his true path. Our last prayer, is Alhamdu-li-Allah (Thank god)
