What Is The Religion of Allah?
Religion refers to the beliefs and a series of practical and moral instructions that the prophets have related on behalf of Allah to guide and lead human beings.
Believing in these tenets and performing these instructions result in man's prosperity and happiness in this world and in the world Hereafter.
So if we abide by religion and follow the orders of Allah and the Prophet (PBUH), we will become prosperous not only in this short life, but also in the everlasting and endless world Hereafter.
We are aware that a happy and prosperous person is one who has a true objective in his life and who does not live in misdeed and aberration. He possesses a good and praiseworthy demeanour and performs good deeds and has a confident, strong, and peaceful heart in this turbulent world.
The religion of Allah directs us towards this happiness and prosperity. Without religion, there would be no prosperity and bliss. Religious tenets are like secret police in the heart of man and always accompany him. They keep man away from moral wickedness and force him to be virtuous.
Belief is the strongest and most solid refuge in which man never confronts fear and anguish in the ups and downs of life. The worshippers of Allah never lose their courage in any circumstances and never feel disdain and inferior, for they see themselves connected to the infinite might of the Creator of the world and under all circumstances, they remember Allah and seek refuge with Allah; they possess a confident, strong, and peaceful heart.
Religion commands us to have a praiseworthy behaviour and to perform good and decent deeds as far as we can.
Therefore, religion is divided into three parts:
