What is Islam?

Mon Nov 29, 2010, 3:30 PM
What is Islam?



Islam is the eternal message of Allah to all people without any exception.  It emanated from our father Adam (peace be upon him) and then was passed on to other chosen messengers reaching its completed word to mankind with the final prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Linguistically,
Islam's means the deliberate "submission and surrendering" to the Almighty's commands. Practically,

Islam's as a religion is based on six basic concepts of faith and five fundamental pillars without which one's belief is not accepted. The six beliefs are:

:bulletblack: The belief in One God, Allah.
:bulletblack: The belief in His Angels.
:bulletblack: The belief in His Scriptures.
:bulletblack: The belief in His Messengers.
:bulletblack: The belief in the Day of Judgment.
:bulletblack: and the belief in the divine decree, the good and the bad of it.

Islam's teachings are simple, rational, and straightforward. They link the practical side with the moral one, the body with the soul. Islam is an encompassing as well as a moderate religion; it speaks to both individuals and groups, it establishes a balance between its beliefs to work harmoniously and fluidly. Islam does not expel life; on the contrary it encourages the true fulfillment of life. It is the very religion of tolerance, freedom, equality, and fraternity.
Islam's is the religion of ethics par-excellence. It seeks spiritual elevation as it abhors all kinds of vices for instance, greed, envy, hatred, selfishness, arrogance, and so on.
Islam's cannot be defined in one word because it is a way of life as it deals with the spiritual, social, economic, cultural, political and international aspects.
Islam's is the light given by the Almighty to facilitate our life, lighten our heart, and guide us to the right path. It stems from a special call from your heart then that call touches all the parts of your body and soul and lets you feel peace and true happiness.

It's horrible that a few bad people created the awful stereotype that all Islam is bad, especially in America. The generalizations are very bad where I live. People can be so ignorant. Just remember to always be happy! Bless you and peace to you and your loved ones!

    Yes that's so unfortunate, we don't force people to Islam as some think,
    but we want people to understand Islam correctly,
    and to give up the misconceptions which spread about.

    Thank you dear for your kindly feedback,
    I appreciate each good word :rose:

The thing with alot of groups, anything from races, religions, classes, there are a few bad people which makes people worry about the intentions of everyone. Like for example, they think all teenages want to take loads of drugs, have loads of sex and carry loads of weapons. The same with religion, there are a few individuals that make people rethink about that particular religion and wonder what their incentives are. We had it alot here with Ireland, catholic vs protestants. Try not to take everything people say to heart, those people who are angry against a whole religion are niave and blind that its only one or two people that are angry. For whatever the reason.

Maybe intention of others it doesn't matter as much as that one of them directs you specific thing or looks you a bad look without understanding, but also be a good thing when trying to correct or clarify idea for some, especially if it was prevalent in the whole world as bad. Each person has his own mind and that mind should be respected as we want others respect us. Religion has been, and still and will remain a sensitive issue because the world is full of different beliefs. Individuals in this life must represent the exchange of roles so that we can live together and accept each other. But whatever we said, life will remain out of good and evil.
