“O You who believe! Enter absolutely into peace (Islam). Do not follow in the footsteps of satan. He is an outright enemy to you.” (Holy Quran: 2, 208)
The word “Islam” is an Arabic word which means “submission to the will of God”. The act of giving yourself up for Allah, the act of offering peace.
The religion of Islam teaches that in order to achieve true peace of mind and surety of heart, one must submit to God and live according to His Divinely revealed Law.
The ultimate goal of every Divine Message has always been the same: to guide people to God, to make them aware of Him, and to have them worship Him alone.
Since Allah is the only Creator and continual Sustainer of the Universe, He is transcendent above His creation.
The Creator and the creature never mix.
Allah calls on man to ponder over the creation in order to build a better understanding of his Creator.
Muslims come from all races, nationalities and cultures across the globe.
They have varied languages, foods, dress, and customs.
Muslim is a person who willingly submits to the will of Allah.
This was taught by the Prophet Muhammad pbuh in the message of Islam which was revealed as a book (Quran) over the period of 23 years.
After the revelation was complete, Prophet Muhammad passed away in this 63rd year of age.
Prophet Muhammad was the best role model for human kind and he demonstrated true compassion and mercy and invited people to the message of Islam.
The Quran revelation started in the month of Ramadan and that is why Muslims are fasting this entire month every year to celebrate this message of salvation.
Women are ordained to cover themselves (wear hijab) if they believe in Allah and we will find that other religions teach the same regarding women modesty and hijab.
Halal (halaal) is what is allowed in Islam and that is in simple terms pretty much everything that is not explicitly forbidden, which is haram (haraam: usury, adultery, and consuming: alcohol, swine, meat from dead animal,…)
