Islam the Perfect Religion

islam

The religion of Islam is the best and most perfect of all religions. In His mercy and kindness Allah sent us the religion of Islam through the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) who taught us the way of worshipping Allah and the best path of life. Allah tells us in the Qur'an:

"Whenever a person refuses Islam and chooses some other religion, it will not be accepted from him and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter."

The religion of Islam teaches us the true knowledge of Allah, how to behave with our parents, how to behave with others, and what things to do in order to be happy in this world and the Hereafter.

The religion of Islam teaches us the permitted (halal) things that we can do and the forbidden (haram) things that we must not do.

The religion of Islam is the key to freedom for all the oppressed people of the world.

 

Who is a Muslim?

A Muslim is a person who:

a. Believes in the One Allah and the Hereafter.

b. Recognizes Muhammad (PBUH) as the last of Allah's prophets.

c. Submits to the instructions of Allah and Muhammad (PBUH) in all things.

d. Befriends and helps Muslims, but is an enemy to the Oppressors.

 

The Qur'an, and Message of God

The Qur'an is a heavenly message and the programme of our lives. Allah in His Mercy sent this book of light and guidance to mankind through His Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

The Qur'an is a book of truth, justice and freedom. It teaches us the highest, noblest path of life. It teaches us knowledge of Allah and the way of worshipping Him. It teaches us complete discernment of good and bad in ethics and behavior.

It teaches us self-sacrifice, for the Qur'an is a message of martyrdom. it says to us: Do not oppress, but don't submit to oppression. Do not be afraid of death with martyrdom, and do not compromise with the oppressors.

The Qur'an tells us: rely on the power and might of Allah and do not be afraid of other than Him. Be stern and severe with the disbelievers and oppressors, and bring them to their knees, but towards one another be kind and merciful.

The Qur'an tells us: be united and cry out for truth and justice in unison. Obey the religious leadership and carry out the command of fighting against the oppressors and delivering people from the claws of oppressions. In this way, you will live in freedom and honor in this world and have felicity and bliss in the Hereafter.

Muslims must learn how to read the Qur'an and, with the help and guidance of the religious scholars, understand its contents. The Muslim must practise the Qur'an's life bestowing and liberating instructions himself, and also teach others to do the same.

Our Holy Prophet tells us: "The best of you is he who learns the Qur'an and teaches it to others.

He has also told us: "Whoever follows the Qur'an will go to Paradise, and whoever ignores the Qur'an will go to Hell."
