Islamic Ethics vs Liberal Ethics

Honestly offspring’s of Adam & Eve, Muslims develop their Islamic-ethics from the sacred book Al-Quran-e-Kareem and Hadith shareef (sayings of the Noble Prophet), while Quran-e-Kareem encloses more than a few commands and Muhammad’s (Ummatee) followers must act upon. The Hadith shareef presents Muhammad صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ as the perfect human, whom Muslim-Ummah must imitate in all esteems. Muhammad صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ was revealed upon the Ummah as a mortal-being, appointed by Gracious Almighty Allah (God) to teach the word of Allah (God) and lead a model life, as the best “Model” for mankind in virtues and perfection. The beloved Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ is living evidence, of what man can be and of what he can achieve in the realm of excellence and virtues.

And those who struggled in Our path – We shall surely show them Our paths; and indeed Allah is with the righteous ones. (1)

Muslim believers look at the whole thing in a different way and morality comes from the beloved Prophet’s actions and good is whatever He exercised. Morality does not decide the Prophet’s actions; however His actions decide and outline morality. The acts of the beloved Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ are not conventional acts but are Gracious Almighty Allah’s own acts endowed, guided and permitted by Gracious Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ.

Whoever desires harvest of the Hereafter, We increase the harvest for him; and whoever desires the harvest of this world – We shall give him part of it, and he has no share in the Hereafter.(2)

It was for this approach and by this reason that beloved Prophet Muhammad’s sentiments became the beliefs of Islam while his personal lifestyles and habits became moral essentials; Gracious Almighty Allah’s directives for all disciples in all ages and places to follow.

You are the best amongst all the nations that were raised among the people – you command what is good and prohibit what is evil and you believe in Allah.(3)

Islam is a complete way of life, and ethics is one of the keystones of Islam.  Ethics is one of the essential sources of a nation’s power, just as immorality is one of the leading causes of a nation’s failure.  Islam has established some all-purpose essential rights for humankind as a whole, which are to be perceived in all situations.  To endorse these rights, Islam has delivered not only legal safety measure, but also a very operational moral system.  Therefore, whatever leads to the prosperity of the individual or the society and does not face any sayings of the religion is ethically good in Islam, and whatever is harmful is ethically bad.

And let there be a group amongst you who invites towards goodness, and commands what is good and forbids what is evil; it is they who are the successful ones.(4)

Well-known of its significance in a vigorous society, Islam supports ethics and substances that lead to it, and positions in the way of dishonesty and substances that lead to it.  The administrative principle for the conduct of a Muslim is (Virtuous Deeds) and this term covers all deeds, not only deeds of worship.  The Protector and Evaluator of all deeds is Gracious Almighty Allah (God) Himself.

The most essential characteristics of a Muslim are virtues and modesty and a Muslims should be modest with the Creator Gracious Almighty Allah (God) and also with all His Creations.

And turn not your face away from people (with pride), nor walk in insolence through the earth.  Verily, God likes not each arrogant boaster.  And be moderate (or show no insolence) in your walking, and lower your voice.  Verily, the harshest of all voices is the voice (braying) of the ass. (5)

A Muslim should not be unproductive or devoted to the temporary desires of this world. While record people let the material world to fill their hearts, Muslims should keep Allah (God) in their hearts and the substantial world in their influence.  Instead of being devoted to the Pullman and the work and the credential and the bank figures, all these possessions become tools to mark us better societies.

It is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards East or West; but it is righteousness (the quality of ) the one who believes in God and the Last Day and the Angels, and the Book, and the Messengers; who spends of his wealth, in spite of love for it, to the kinsfolk, to the orphans, to the needy, to the wayfarer, to those who ask and for the freeing of slaves; and who is steadfast in prayers, and gives Zakah (Alms); and those who fulfill their covenants which they made; and who are patient and perseverant in poverty and ailment and throughout all periods of fighting.  Such are the people of truth, the pious. (6)

Definition of the verse demonstrates that morality and piety is centered before all others on a correct and truthful faith.  The significant to virtues and good behavior has a strong bonding with Gracious Almighty Allah (God), who perceives all, at all times and universally.  He discerns the secrets of the hearts and the plans behind all acts.  And so, a Muslim must be ethical in all situations; Almighty Allah (God), is very well aware of every one, when no one else is therefore, we can deceive the whole world, except for Him.  We can escape from the world, but not from Him, so when there is no escape why disobey Him.  The affection and endless awareness of Gracious Almighty Allah (God) and the Day of compensation enable’s man, to be ethical in behavior and honest in intentions, with dedication and devotion:

Do not ever think of those who rejoice for their deeds and wish to be praised without doing (good deeds) – do not ever think that they are safe from the punishment; and for them is a painful punishment.(7)

Aj banta hun mu’azziz Jo khulay Ḥashr mayn ‘ayb

Haye ruswayi ki afat mayn phansun ga Ya Rab

Translation: Ya Rab! Today, I act as if I am a respected person. Alas, I will be disgraced if my faults are exposed on the Day of Judgement. (8)

Ethics in Islam lectures every feature of a Muslim’s life, from greetings to comprehensive relations.  It is collective in its scope and in its applicability’s, whereas morality rules in selfish needs, arrogance and evil behaviors.  Muslim-Ummah must not only be ethical, they should also command virtues and not only abstain from immoral but must also outlaw them.  Furthermore, must not only be ethically strong, but they must also contribute to the ethical condition of the society as a whole.

You are the best of the nations raised up for (the benefit of) men; you enjoin what is right and forbid the wrong and believe in God; and if the followers of the Book had believed it would have been better for them; of them (some) are believers and most of them are transgressors.(9)

Islamic Ethics <> Conclusion;

When observing Islamic-ethics, Muslims appreciate Muhammad صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ as model human-being, the one all mankind should strive to imitate. Along with extra universal virtues, the 5 Pillars of Islam form a core of Islamic-ethics and supports incentives for ethical deeds along with keenness of final judgment is the strongest.

Most Important Facts about Islam you need to know

Respectively a soul is born in a situation having no powers to change the future. The faith of his family or the creed of his nation is forced upon him from the very first day of his life in this particular realm. By the time he touches his young adulthood, he is largely brain-washed into considering that the views of his certain tribe about religion are true and that the entire world should follow the same religion. On the other hand, when societies are exposed to new religions which they have not come across, they begin to demand the authority of their own. The explorers of true belief again and again touch a point of misperception upon recognizing that each and every faith, division, and creed titles to be the one and individual right way for men and women. Actually, they inspire people to do well. Hence, which one amongst them is true? That is an important question and they all can’t be true at a time, as each of them title others to be wide of the mark.  Then how is it possible for the explorer of truth to pick the correct path? Dear friends I will try to answer that and many other questions as we explore the facts and how important role it can play in our life.

Generally in this realm, we devote many years to obtain a credential that entitles us for a decent job.  So doesn’t our perpetual life ask for that we devote a small number of weeks or days of analysis and bone up to pick the right religion which is okay adjacent to God and which will top us to everlasting PLEASURE?

At this moment arises the big (?) Name the true religious conviction? God passed us brains and understandings, which enables us to sort this vital assessment. If considered this is the most vital assessment of life-spam upon which relies her/his future. As a result, we must scrutinize calmly the signs exposed and pick what seems to be true waiting for additional signs to arise. Let’s do this in a systematic mode and go through each and every aspect individually:

 

1-Primarily to save time, ignore all those religions that don’t entitle to be from God and also religions not common because normally the fact of a true religion is so obvious that scores of people would follow it.

 

2-If the steps mentioned above are followed we have very few religions left to follow.Now strides in the purpose to do the investigation through various books about the evidences, influences, theories, and rehearses of those faiths.

 

3-Throughout this retro, plead desperately and honestly to God to guide and enlighten your heart with the true religious conviction and to monitor you in following and treasuring it. At times we discern the right path but don’t have enough courage and backbone to move forward with it.

 

4-Once this homework is completed, typically one of these religious convictions will step out and you will discover one of them to be more logical, true and in harmony with your heart, mind and soul.

So my friends I have detailed the values that should be considered and also tried to highlight the ways which can be applicable in grasping the appropriate chance helpful in following a specific and true religion. Now let’s move forward to look into the practices and the benefits that can be obtained while practicing Islam.

 

  • Prayers (Salah)

 

In Islam Muslims perform Salah (prayers) five times a day and each prayer overwhelms hardly more than a few minutes to execute. Salah (prayer) practiced in Islam is an uninterrupted link created amid the believer and the creator (God). There are no couriers or obstacles amid the creator (God) and the creation (disciple), therefore we feel the innermost pleasure and harmony by the grace of God and so He is pleased because we effort to fulfill the only reason mankind is created for.

 

  • Benefits of Salah (Prayers)

 

Salah (prayers) affects our minds’, helping us relax and so reduces the effects of constant worry on different parts of the body. We have identified that it not only helps in reducing mental stress but it also supports in beating physical strain and balances our emotional response to it. Adjoining is a great link amid Yoga and Salah (prayers).Yoga exercise restores the system of the body and mind. It helps to stable harmony between different aspects of lifestyle such as social, physical, spiritual, emotional and mental. Basic theory of Yoga is to treasure and esteem the natural life with immense pleasure. The same status quo is with Salah (prayers) and it is very efficiently replacing Yoga for a tension and disease free persona.

 

  • Fasting in Ramadan

 

Each year in the holy month of Ramadan, Muslims abstain themselves from eating, drinking and sexual contact from dawn until sunset. Even though fasting is beneficial for health; it is heavenly considered above all as a way of spiritual self-purification. If we cut off ourselves from worldly relaxations, even for a short spell we will surely gain true sympathy mainly for those who starve and along with that grow higher in spiritual life.

 

  • Benefits of Fasting:

 

A research directed in the late 1997’s in Accounts of Food Digestion proved that fasting decreases bad (LDL) fat intensities by 8% and triglyceride by 30%.It also provide that good (HDL) intensities can be increased by 14 ½ % guarding your heart from cardiac diseases.

Dear friends there are many other benefits such as;

1-Abstaining (fasting) Benefits in beautifying the skin and prevents from bad skin.

2-Abstaining (fasting) Advances your Immune system.

3-Abstaining (fasting) expands your Acumens system.

4-Abstaining (fasting) Rewards in losing weight & supports for prolonged existence.

 

  • Zakat (helping the needy):

 

Finally possessions rightfully belong to our creator (God) and we are its custodians, so treasures of the world are hence kept by humans in trust. Meaning of the term Zakat is mutually ablution and development. Donating Zakat means “contributing a defined ratio according to the laws of sharia on sure possessions to sure classes of deprived individuals. Zakat mainly helps those people who are needy and lack from the basic requirements to prosper a balanced life. Our assets are sanctified by donating a minor share to individuals in need and an individual may donate as much as he/she gratifies as charitable alms or donations.

 

  • Terrorism:

 

In dainty of these and many other Islamic transcripts, the action of provoking fear in the souls of vulnerable private citizen, the indiscriminate damage to structures and belongings, the bombarding and injuring of acquitted women, men and kids are completely outlawed and hateful actions rendering to Islam and the Muslim-Ummah. Muslims shadow a religious conviction of harmony, compassion and tolerance with the huge mainstream have zero to do with the passionate events which have been linked with Muslims. An individual act of terrorism committed by a person does not high spot the teachings of his religion he would be considered guilty of breaking the worldly laws and the law of the shadowed religion.

In the holy Quran, God has stated: Islam is a religion of mercy and does not permit terrorism. My dear friends what else is left to be said, when the creator of the world is not accepting violence then people disobeying him are un-doubtfully sinners and this statement which cannot be denied by people following any religion.

God does not forbid you from showing kindness and dealing justly with those who have not fought you about religion and have not driven you out of your homes.  God loves just dealers.  (Quran, 60:8)

 

  • Human Rights and Justice in Islam:

 

Solitary of the key problems faced by mankind nowadays is intolerance. The technologically advanced realm can propel a guy to the moon but cannot stop a guy from disliking and fighting with his companions. Eternally in the holy days of the noble Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) Islam delivered a brilliant pattern of how intolerance can be terminated.  The yearly tour to Makkah spectacles the real coming together of all races and populations, in which about 2.5 million people from across the world visit Makkah to carry out the pilgrimage.

Islam armors the existence and possessions of all residents with honor, whether he is a Muslim or not.  Dear friend’s terrorism is much too far because in Islam, abusing people or ill-treating them is not permitted. Within the Islamic realm, one would hardly find senior citizen house. The anxiety of loving parent’s in the utmost testing spell of their lifespan and it is measured an integrity and a blessing for an unusual spiritual development. It is not sufficient that we pray for our parents but in profit remember when we were kids they preferred us upon themselves and we should act with unlimited sympathy.  In Muslim societies mothers are in specific privileged the most and when parent’s touch old-age they are handled with merci & kindness. Serving parents is a duty 2nd to Salah (prayers) and it is considered awful expressing irritation towards them although it is their fault. So this is Islam my friends and never well the five figures be the same as much as we attempt.

SERVICES OF ISLAM AND ISLAMIC SCHOLARS FOR THE EVOLUTION OF MANKIND

The major optimistic influence of Islam in the world can be witnessed in the praise of Muslims in the quest of facts, as the noble Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) has stated; “The finest type of worship is to search of knowledge”.

The past expresses that, the upsurge of Muslims far ahead transformed the growth of the world to the peak of progress in a time of four decades and was established on Islam’s importance on knowledge. This rendering to scholars is clear when one takes a glimpse at the holy Quran (Koran) and the Sunnah of the noble Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) which is definitely full with references to knowledge, education, reflection and the use of goal line.

Are those who have knowledge and those who have no knowledge alike? Only the men of understanding are aware (Qur’an 39:9).

A majority of Muslims shadow the holy Quran (Koran) and the role model of the noble Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ). The Sunnis specially offer more respect & tribute to the holy Quran (Koran) and the sacred books enclosing the hadith, specimens of the noble & kind Prophet Muhammad (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) but all the premature scholars and the 4 caliphs operated together, the Sunnis accepted all the first 4 caliphs, as they were chosen by the Muslim society. They also accepted all the premature imams (scholars) for their knowledge.
Muslim Scholars are heirs of the noble Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) and the guardians of Islam. They are known to be those who do not stray from the path of truth, correcting unaware analyses and lairs.
In a Hadith from Abu Da’ud al-Tarmidi it is stated that:
The noble Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) stated “Prophets did not inherit money, but knowledge, so he is lucky who shadows the similar path”.
Islamic scholars played a vital role in the development of modern world, focusing on social, political, cultural, artistic and financial attainments between 1300 -1900 and the improvement of Islamic community. Islamic scholars shaded public awareness and established sermons for Western societies.
Modern Islamic scholars presented intellectual work in order to reject Western societies, innovation and actual reorganizers. Islam emphasized a structure of law centered on the holy Quran (Koran). This very structure was built to support people in relating the holy Quran (Koran) to daily life and circumstances. The order of laws, entitled the Sharia, controlled all features of life containing, good conduct, domestic life, commercial dealings, and administration. Islamic scholars also played a very spirited role in the restoration of Muslim Ummah and exposed the factual colors of Islam. Today Islamic scholars are trying to develop the image of Muslims-Ummah globally by writing books and contents in order to support moderate appearance of Islam. It is compulsory for every Muslim to respect Islamic scholars as they are now the only way to transfer the education of Islam, after the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ). It is not permitted to speak harsh or bad about them.
Some essential accomplishments that derived from Islam were medications, the paper mill, and an integrated language. The noble Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ) stimulated medicine and science developments and stated: “For each and every disease, Almighty Allah (عَزَّوَجَلَّ) has specified a treatment”. Throughout the Golden-Age era, the launch of a paper mill was made in Baghdad. Paper was first conceived in China. Soon paper substituted for skin of animals and some for plants usually obtained from ancient Egypt. This made developments in education and specially for making books:
Islamic Scholars could connect with each other and ideas were transformed. Text could be recited and debated by specialists from all over the Islamic world which was significant to Muslim-Ummah because of their faith. They desired to identify the start of the holy months, the time of (Salah) prayer and the course of (Kiblah) Kabba in Mecca. They would perceive the location of the moon and sun, so that they would distinguish the course of (Kiblah) Kabba in Mecca. Farming developments are also fragment of the accomplishments of Islam. Various new plants were familiarized into all measures of Islam from India, Africa, and China. Muslim-Ummah progressed in implanting, which is slicing off a division from a plant and joining it onto a different plant. Also enrichers that are recycled to make grounds extra fertile and support to propagate came from Muslims.
Many other significant accomplishments like technology, algebra, sociology, astronomy, sciences, agriculture, philosophy, arts, navigation, economics, literature, industry and law. By education, Muslims developed into founders of the greatest major accomplishments in the whole world, which far ahead principled the western and specially the world civilization in poetry, medicine, geometry, technology, mathematics, chemistry, urbanization, physics, art and ethical values.

It also is recognized that, the Islamic kingdom ruled the hearts for more than 1000 years and endured with the title of the utmost progressive civilization ever to exist in the world. The key detail for this conferring to history was that, Islam highlighted the significance and esteem for education, prohibited damage and cultured respect for specialist, restraint and lenience for those following other religions. The education of Islam encouraged Muslim-Ummah to their activities in science and other countless accomplishments which have today transformed into the vital cause of world civilization. The civil rights of woman and children in the community, responsibility of parents towards their children, duties of husband and wife, and the character of government towards citizens are all highlighted and sheltered by Islam when there was nothing on the planet.

In assessment to this, I am very proud and obliged to state that the accomplishments, effects and involvement of Islam in global civilization are the supreme in the world. What is anticipated of us as Muslims is that, we endure to oblige as encouraging representatives to the world, by donating to make the world healthier for all and conquer harmony. It is safe to determine this opinion that, the vehicles we ride, the aircrafts we fly, the medicines we consume, the PCs we use, the timepieces, art and tools were all made promising by the only support of Islam. So please readers of the new era don’t assume Islam as an extremist religion, there are many services Islam has offered without any compensation and it is due time to compensate it, by following the laws it has introduced which are in the interest of the whole mankind not just Muslim-Ummah. Mark the verses beneficial not just for Muslim-Ummah!

Who are “Sahaba’s”? – Why respect them?

A Muslim who perceives with his eyes the holy Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم just only for a short while, whether they are a child or an adult, they will be called “Sahabah” رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُم with the condition of passing from this world as a devotee; the dupe law implements to visionless Muslims who have just talked with the holy Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم at least once in a life-time. If a pessimist sees the holy Prophet Muhammad صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّمَ and then accompanies the devotees after the demise of the holy Muhammad صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم, he will not be considered a “Sahabah”.

UN doubtfully, the soul style and experiences of the holy Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم and his companions رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُم are the very capable origin producing courage of faith and devotion for the believe .The Ummah and the call towards believe has always been illustrating glitter of faith from these origin and it is by this that the cinders of their souls have been kept glowing.

They generally agreed upon animosity contrary to their caste, people and encounter their cruelty, brutality and left their motherland and emigrated to Madīnaĥ, all of this just for the sake of exercising and extending the religion of Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ . They fought along the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم), against the non-Muslims, with their prosperity and souls. Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ elected them to place the obligation of safeguarding the Religion of Islam for the upcoming formations and it is because of them that the Religion is sustained; as the holy Prophet (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم) said:

“The finest among all are my “Sahaba’s” then those who pursue them and then those who pursue them” [Saheeh Bukharee].

The memoir of the companion’s رَضِیَ اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَنْہُم consists of the history of men who welcomed the proposal of Islam when it was bestowed to them. Their souls indicated to its legitimacy and they proclaimed when called towards Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and his beloved Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم. “Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ we have UN doubtfully perceived the caller (صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم) calling towards faith”. By placing their hands in hands of the holy Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم, it became uncomplicated for them to sacrifice their souls their riches and their tribes. They started searching for comfort in the obstacles and crisis that troubled them in the line of inviting others towards Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ. This aspect principle penetrated their souls and obtained ability over their frames and wisdoms. They presented the astonishing faith in the invisible, never-ending love for Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and his beloved Prophet صَلَّی اللہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم, tenderness for the Muslims and severity for the non-Muslims .They elected the after-world upon this world, tribute (the compensation of the after-world) to refund (the prize of this world), the invisible to the visible and intelligence to unintelligence. They were ambitious to encourage people toward Islam, Thus extracting the humanity from bondage to the formation and taking them towards the subjugation of Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ only. They detached humanity from the discrimination of other religions and harvested them in to the justified religion of Islam.

They presented no interest for the attractiveness and pride of the world and strived to meet Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and enter the promised “Heavens”. They also displayed excellent determination and vision in extending the souvenir of Islam and conveying it to the mankind with the expenditure of their souls. For this ambition they advanced throughout the far borders of the world saving no force to skyline as far as they could. In doing so, they kept aside their individual gratification, relinquished their leisure’s abandoned their homelands and nobly passed their lives and riches. They progressed in this aspect until the infrastructure of faith was entrenched; souls and hearts flourished with the true love of Almighty Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and the divine and sanctified breeze of faith blew sincerely. Finally the sacrifices and efforts were fruitfully blessed and an empire of “Tauheed”, faith, worship and continuity was established.

Muslim: A man of his word

Muslim islam dawateislami

In the Arabic dictionary, the word Muslim is an up rooted expression of Islam.

“Muslim” and “Islam” come from the identical root: which means; “to abide in peace”; “renounced in compliance”; and this straightaway bond between two individuals, one being supreme to the other or in charge of issues. Why are so many people transforming into Islam and why it has become the speedily flourishing religion in the world today. It is necessary to re frame the meaning of the words from the Arabic language to portray an exact view of what is “ISLAM” & “MUSLIMS” are.

A Muslim’s primary objective is to “build a fraternity (ummah)” were fortune is equally allotted. “Prostrations while praying were formulated to correspond… hard egotism … guiding to put away their self-esteem and greed “For Muslims it is obligatory to give zakat—alms to the poor. Fasting in the month of Ramadan reminds them of what is life for the needy, who can’t eat or drink whenever they desire to do so.

Honest intention is the vital solution to the triumph or omission of the Muslim. All actions taken must be for the welfare of Allah and not for showing off or drawing attention to himself or herself. If there is even a bit of self-esteem or advertisement for the people rather than doing for Allah, then the whole action will be jilted by Allah on the Doomsday. This is because Almighty Allah loves chastity of intentions and so does wants chastity in deed.

Islam is a religion defined by the holy prophet Muhammad & a gift for the Muslims from Allah, The Originator and Strengthener of all that exists. As such, it is for Him Alone to order and direct His creation and He Alone is the only one not answerable to any one for what He will accept and what He will reject. It is also for Him Alone to decree what is good and what is bad and He is surely the One to show the right track to everyone in all things.

Muslims should understand that Islam delivers a perfect and comprehensive way of living, justifying a Muslims life entirely from the start till the end and from the rise until demise. Islam is always vigilant to prompt that it is not a religion of hollow words services; preferably it is a global way of life that must be practiced regularly by the Muslims to be in Islam.

There are other directives and laws which affect virtually all aspects of a Muslims personal, family and civil life. Matters which are diet, clothing, children, marriage, divorce, responsibilities towards parents, personal hygiene, personal relations, business relations, fighting in defense of Islam, relations with non-Muslims, and much much more.

In judgment, we are made to perceive that ISLAM is a sure way of life for the Muslims. Everything is concluded in Islam from rise to demise and live in the complete compliance to the Will of the One Who Created man in the first place.

Hadees, muslim

Non-Muslims inquire, “What about Muslims as extremists?” And of course the answer is simple; “If you are at peace with Allah and doing what He has ordered and staying away from what He has disallowed, how could you be an extremist?” This is a mis perception of both the meaning of the word, “Muslim” and a gross mis perception of what Muslims are all about.

As the Sufi poet Rumi tells us: “Look for the soul—you become the soul. Hunt for the bread—you become the bread. Whatever you look for—you are.”   Let us look for peace.
