Understanding Islaam

Please forgive us for any disturbance, but we have an important
to address to you regarding FAITH, and we Don't intend to overload
your email with unnecessary messages...

Understanding Islaam
1) The deen (religion) of Islaam: It is the way of life that Allaah
sent the Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) with. By it,
Allaah terminated the validity of all other religions, perfected this
religion for His worshippers, completed His favour upon them and has
chosen only this religion for them - no other religion will be
accepted by Him from anyone. Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) said:
{Muhammad is not the father of any man amongst you. Rather he is the
Messenger of Allaah and the khaatim (last and final) of the Prophets},
[Soorah al-Ahzaab, Aayah 40]
{This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour
upon you, and have chosen for you Islaam as your religion}, [Soorah al-
Maa.idah, Aayah 3]
{Indeed the religion with Allaah is Islaam}, [Soorah Aal-'lmraan,
Aayah 19]
{Whosoever seeks a religion other than Islaam, never will it be
accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers},
[Soorah Aal-'Imraan, Aayah 85]
And Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) obligated all of mankind to take
Islaam as their religion. So Allaah said, whilst addressing His
Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam):
{Say: O mankind! Indeed I have been sent to you all as the Messenger
of Allaah; to Whom belongs the dominion of the heavens and the earth.
None has the right to be worshipped except Him; it is He who gives
life and causes death. So believe in Allaah and His Messenger - the
Prophet who can neither read nor write - who believes in Allaah and
His Words. So follow the Messenger of Allaah so that you may be
rightly-guided}, [Soorah al-A'raaf Aayah 158]
And in Saheeh Muslim (1/93), from Abu Hurayrah radhi-yallaahu 'anhu
that Allaah's Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:
((By Him in whose Hand is the life of Muhammad! There is no one from
this nation, be he a Jew or a Christian, who hears of me and then dies
without believing in the Message that I was sent with, except that he
will be one of the Companions of the Hellfire)).
And eemaan (faith) in the Prophet implies: affirming that which he was
sent with, along with acceptance of it and submission to it. Without
these two matters, mere affirmation is not sufficient. This is why
even though Abu Taalib (the Prophet's uncle) affirmed what was sent to
the Prophet Muhammad (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam) and that Islaam
was the best of religions, yet he did not accept his message nor
submit to it; and thus he did not have eemaan, in the Prophet (sal-
Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam).
2) The religion of Islaam contains all that was beneficial from the
previous religions. It is suitable for implementation in any age,
anywhere and by any nation. Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) said,
whilst addressing His Messenger (sal-Allaahu `alayhe wa sallam):
{And We have sent down to you the Book in truth, confirming the
Scripture that came before it> testifying to the truth contained
therein whilst exposing the falsehood that has been added therein},
[Soorah al-Maa.idah, Aayah 48]
That Islaam is suitable for implementation in any age, anywhere and by
any nation does not mean that it becomes submissive to nations - being
altered and changed by them - as some people falsely think. But rather
it means that whenever it is truly adhered to then it brings benefit
and goodness to that nation, as well as reforming and correcting it -
in whatever age or place.
3) The religion of Islaam is the religion of truth. It is the way of
life that Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) guaranteed His help and
victory for those who truly adhere to it, and that He would make it
dominant over all other religions.
Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) said:
{It is He who has sent His Messenger with the guidance and the
religion of truth, that it may prevail over all other religions, even
if the pagans detest it}, [Soorah at-Tawbah, Aayah 33]
And Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) said:
{Allaah has promised to those amongst you who truly have eemaan (true
faith and belief) and act in obedience to Allaah and His Messenger,
that He will grant them rulership upon the earth, just as He granted
it to those before them, and that He will establish their Religion for
them and grant them the authority to practice their Religion which He
chose and ordered them with. And He will certainly change their
situation to one of security, after their fear. Providing that they
worship and obey Me, not associating anything else in worship with Me.
Then, whoever rejects this favour by disobedience to their Lord - then
they are the rebellious transgressors}, [Soorah an-Noor, Aayah 55]
4) The religion of Islaam is a complete religion comprising both
'aqeedah (beliefs) and Sharee'ah (laws).
It commands them with tawheed (to single out Allaah alone for worship)
and prohibits them from shirk (associating partners with Allaah in
that which is particular to Him).
• It commands them with being truthful and prohibits them from lying.
• It commands them with 'adl (justice) and prohibits them from
injustice and oppression.
• It commands them with fulfilling trusts and prohibits them from
acting treacherously.
• It commands them with keeping promises and prohibits them from
breaking them.
• It commands them with kindness and good treatment of parents and
prohibits them from disobedience to them in that which is not sinful.
• It commands them with joining the ties of relations and prohibits
them from severing them.
• It commands them with good treatment of neighbours and prohibits the
causing of harm to them.
In short, Islaam orders all that is good, from manners and morals, and
prohibits all that is evil from it.
Likewise, it orders all actions which are righteous and good and
prohibits all actions that are evil and harmful.
Allaah (Subhaanahu wa Ta'aala) said:
{Indeed Allaah enjoins upon you justice, kindness and the giving of
good to relatives and near ones. And He prohibits you from all
shameful and evil deeds, oppression and transgression. Thus He
admonishes you, that you may take heed and be reminded}, [Soorah an-
Nahl, Aayah 90].
