Islam: basic beliefs

Islam is a pure monotheistic religion. Which means it is a religion that teaches us there is only one God that has the right to be worshiped and everything else that exists is God's creation. Further more Islam teaches us that God exists outside His creation. That God is unique, has no son nor partner, there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him, He is All powerful, none can harm or benefit him and none has the right to be worshipped but Him alone 


In the Name of Allah, most Compassionate, most Merciful
1. Say (O Muhammad  ): "He is Allâh, (the) One.
2. "Allâh-us-Samad (The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks).
3. "He begets not, nor was He begotten;
4. "And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." 
(Quran Surah Al-Ikhlaas)


Therefore God is not a tree or inside plants, animals, humans or stones. Nor does God become a human being. Nor can a human being become God. But rather God is separate from His creation.

If there was more than one God then there would be chaos. One God may want it to be cold and rainy and the other God may want it to be hot and sunny. This would end up in chaos for human beings in particular.

Islam is not a new religion. It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which Allah revealed to all His Prophets, like Adam, Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, David, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad (peace be upon them all). But the message which was revealed to Prophet Muhammad  (peace be upon him) is Islam in its comprehensive, complete and final form

2 Perfection of the Quran

Since God is perfect. Therefore any book from God must be perfect. Any religious book that claims it is from the Creator has to be error free. there cannot be any contradictions in it. A person may think Oh no what if they find a 'contradiction in my holy book' . This is not a problem with the Muslims. Allah challenges the whole of humanity to find even one single contradiction in the Quran.  For 1400 years the enemies of Islam all over the world have been trying to find a single contradiction in the Quran and they have not been able to do so. Every time they think they have the Muslims fooled by taking certain verses out of context or not giving the true meaning of that verses. The Muslim scholars easily refute them and make them lower their heads in shame. For their cheap tricks. God is more powerful than Satan. Any book that is purely from God will be error free. Any book from other than God will have errors as no one is more powerful than God nor equal in power. It is not the aim of Muslims to insult other religions but we will challenge other religion to bring a book that is error free to us. No other religion is able to do that. And when we point out the mistakes in their books, such as the bible they are not able to refute us.

Thus Islam is Perfect. Now there is no need for humans to guess how they should live this life any more. The Quran is the perfect manual for humans and the Prophet Muhammad is the perfect teacher and perfect example for humans to follow in order to be successful in this life and the next.

Science and Islam

Scientific advancement in the 20th century lead to many Non Muslims leaving their religion on mass scale. Such as what has happened in Britain. which used to be a fundamentalist Christian country, Which waged religious wars all over the world for centuries. The religious wars it fought may not have stopped but the majority population left Christianity.

However, with regards to Islam. Scientific advancement has lead to people becoming Muslim. The Quran which is more than 14 centuries old, contains so many scientific facts that only know we know about. Thus science has helped us understand some of the verses of the Quran and has lead many non Muslims to embrace Islam. Some of which are scientists.

For instance Allah revealed in the Quran  more than 1400 years ago a barrier between two seas

 

Allah says

"He has set free the two seas meeting together. There is a barrier between them. They do not transgress.  (Quran, 55:19-20)

The figure shows the Mediterranean sea water as it enters the Atlantic over the Gibraltar sill. It does does not mix with the Atlantic ocean. but rather it has its own salinity and temperature Which are are higher than Atlantic ocean.

Although there are large waves, strong currents, and tides in these seas the two seas do not mix. One would naturally expect these two seas to mix. However it is as if there is an invisible barrier which prevents them from mixing. Something which is truly amazing. Not only that, Allah had revealed this verse to Prophet peace be upon him  more than 14 centuries ago. A prophet who lived in the desert and could not read nor right. And these facts have only been discovered in recent times with the help of modern technology such as deep sea diving equipment. 

As we know when one goes deep down into the sea. The pressure starts to increase the more deeper we sink into the sea. So much so that without the deep sea diving equipment our rib cage would crush under the pressure and we would die.

There are many more amazing scientific facts that are mentioned in the Quran that we only know of today with the Aid of equipment such as microscopes, deep sea diving kits, the Hubble telescope and so on.

Science and Islam in detail

 

Muhammad (peace be upon him)


In 610 CE God (Allah) commissioned the Muhammad son of Abdullah (peace be upon him) to be His last and final Prophet and Messenger to mankind, in the city of Makkah (Mecca) in present day Saudi Arabia.
Every Prophet was sent exclusively to his own people, but Allah sent His Messenger Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) to all of mankind as Allah said (interpretation of the meaning): 


"Allah revealed to His messenger the Quran by which to guide people And We have not sent you (O Muhammad) except as a giver of glad tidings and a Warner to all mankind, but most of men know not"
[Saba 34:28] 


Allah sent the Quran to His Messenger, to guide people and bring them forth from darkness to light by the will of their Lord. 


Allah says (interpretation of the meaning): 

"(This is) a Book which We have revealed unto you (O Muhammad) in order that you might lead mankind out of darkness (of disbelief and polytheism) into light (of belief in the Oneness of Allah and Islamic Monotheism) by their Lord's Leave to the path of the All Mighty, the Owner of all praise"
[Ibraaheem 14:1] 


The Quran  is a Message from Allah to the whole of humanity. It was transmitted to us in a chain starting from the Almighty  to the Angel Gabriel, The Angel Gabrial then transmitted it to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). This message was given to the Prophet (peace be upon him) in pieces over a period spanning approximately 23 years (610 CE to 622 CE). The Prophet (peace be upon him) was 40 years old when the Quran began to be revealed to him, and he was 63 when the revelation was completed. the Quran was revealed in Arabic.

Allah says: 
You are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'rûf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islaam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allâh……. (Quran 3: 110).

Thus Islam Produces the most civilized society when that society accepts Islam and lives by the Shariah.

 

Verily, those who believe [in the Oneness of Allâh, and in His Messenger Muhammad (peace be upon him)] including all obligations ordered by Islâm] and do righteous good deeds, they are the best of creatures. (Quran 98:7 )

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the model of Human perfection. He was the ultimate leader, ultimate commander, ideal husband. best father, best friend. He was the walking Quran. And those who followed him are honored in this world and the next. AbuBakr, Umar. Uthman, Ali, Khadija, Aisha, Fatima, Khalid bin Walid and the list goes on. More than 1400 years have past and still billions of Muslims love and admire both the Prophet (peace be upon him) and His Companions (male and female, young and old) and will do till the end of this world. Islam raised their status so high because they took the Quran as their constitution and The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as their teacher and leader. Allah praised them and gave them victory after victory against their enemies.

Allah says about Sahabah:

"And the first to embrace Islam of the Muhajiroon (the Emigrants from Makkah) and the Ansar (the citizens of Al-Madeenah who helped the Muhajiroon) and also those who followed them exactly (in Faith). Allah is well-pleased with them as they are well pleased with Him. He has prepared for them Gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever. That is the supreme success." [9:100]

The Two Sources of Islam

The two sources of Islam are

1. The Quran which is the book of our creator

2. Hadith which are the recorded saying and action of the Messenger of God.

 

The Does and do nots in Islam

In order to understand and appreciate the do's and do Not's one must first understand the Concept of God in Islam and why a Muslim believes with certainty.

This been explained in the above articles and the following articles

In short the do's consist of worshiping God alone as God and His messenger peace be upon him have instructed us, to be kind towards people, animals and even the environment and to be charitable, to be humble and not to show of. to help the ophans and needy etc, to fast in the month of Ramadan, to perform the pilgrimage to Makkah (in present day Saudi Arabia) to stand against oppression.

The do not include things such as not commit things which are regarded as crimes .. murder, rape, theft, lying, cheating, defrauding, insulting etc, not eating pig products and animals slaughtered in non Islamic way, not taking intoxicants, not committing adultery etc.

 

 

 

 

Road to Islam and Muslim Unity

The link between Muslims of different tribes, nations, colors, languages is Islam. Therefore unity is not achieved by compromising Islam but by every one sticking to Islam. The Islam as taught to the Sahabah by the Prophet (peace be upon him).

When people start to compromise Islam. Then this strong link of Brother hood and unity starts to become compromised and becomes weaker and weaker as one compromises more and more. Then racism, nationalism and hate begins And our enemies triumph over us because of our disobedience. 

Therefore a Muslim is one who says

"We Hear and Obey"

He or she does not pick and choose which parts of Islam to believe in or which parts of Islam to follow. HE/She believes in all and tries to follow all parts of Islam.

Therefore we should

  • 1. First Know what are the conditions of Shahadah (kalima) and what invalidates the Shahadah Unfortunately many Muslims do not know what the conditions of shahadah are and what invalidates the shahadah.

 

  • 2. Have proper understanding of Tawheed. Correct understanding of Tawheed and Aqeeda can help a person from being mislead by deviate people and thus help prevent him from going outside the fold of Islam. 
  • 3. Know what shirk is and its different forms so we can avoid it. Shirk is the ultimate sin and only sin that Allah will not forgive. It is easy to fall into to. Unfortunately many Muslims are committing shirk without even knowing it.

 

  • 4. Al-Wala'u wa Al-Bara'The legal meaning of Al-Wala' (love, support, help, follow, etc.) is to totally agree with the sayings, deeds and beliefs which please Allah and the persons whom He likes. Al-Bara'(despise, desert, keep innocent of, etc.) is the complete opposite of Al-Wala'and it is to disagree with everything that Allah hates and condemns.

    Al-Barra' bin A'aazeb (r.a.a.) narrates that the Prophet (s.a.w.) said: "The strongest bond of Iman is the love for Allah's sake and the hatred for Allah's sake" (Reported by Imam Ahmad).

     

     Ibn Abbas reports that the Prophet said, "The strongest bond of faith is loyalty for the sake of Allah and opposition for His sake, love for the sake of Allah and enmity for His sake." (3)

     

  • 5. What is Sunnah and Bidda

 

  • Prophet sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam    said, "I have left behind me two things: as long as you cling to them you will never go astray.  They are the Book of Allaah and my Sunnah (life example)." [al-Haakim]  And he also said, "...and you will live to see great differing, so cling to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly-guided Khalifas after me, even if it be with your molar teeth..."[Bukhaaree]

 

  •  Rasulallaah sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam said, "I warn you of the newly invented-matters (in the religion), and every newly-invented matter is an innovation, and every innovation is misguidance, and every misguidance is in Hellfire."  [an-Nisaa'ee]

 

 
Attributes of a Muslim 

When we possess knowledge, we know that the trials in life can be passed, since Allah does not place a greater burden on us than we can bear. With knowledge, we know that these trails, once passed, will bear fruits in the form of pleasing our Creator, rising in ranks towards Him, cleansing us of our sins, and strengthening our Iman further...
