Faith in the Unity of God
As mentioned previously, Muslims believe in the absolute unity of God (ALLAH). The essence of Islam is expressed in the phrase “La ilaha illa ALLAH” meaning “There is no deity but ALLAH”.
“And your God is One God; there is no god but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful”
Judgment, faith in the Prophets and the Books, and asked people consequently to live a life of obedience and submission to their Lord. This is the definition of a Muslim.
“Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was upright, and bowed his
will to ALLAH’s (which is Islam).And he joined not gods with ALLAH”
(Qur’an, Ali Imran:67).
Some of these prophets brought revealed books (see below). They were all men guided by ALLAH to teach mankind and guide them on the straight path. Muslims believe in them all and make no distinction between them.
“Say:’We believe in ALLAH, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael,Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in the Books given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets, from their Lord; wemake no distinction between one and another among them, and to ALLAH do we bow our will in Islam” (Qur’an, Ali Imran:84).
Muslims believe that the final prophet, Muhammad, came to invite people back to the true teachings of the previous prophets, and to bring to mankind a final and all-encompassing guidance: the Qur’an. The Qur’an remains in its complete and unadulterated form; there is therefore no need for any more prophets to come. ALLAH’s message is complete.
“They change the words from their right places and forget a good part of the Message that was sent them…” (Qur’an, Al- Maidah:13).
Reading these books today, we have no way of knowing what portion was revealed by ALLAH, and what was recorded and changed by man.
Muslims believe that ALLAH sent a final revelation, the Qur’an, through the final Prophet of Allah, Muhammad (peace be upon him and all of Allah’s messengers).
“None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar…” (Qur’an, Al-Baqarah:106).
The sending of this divine Book is not a new and strange event; but only to confirm, restate, and complete those divine instructions which people had mutilated or lost in antiquity.
“To thee (Muhammad) We sent the Scripture in truth, confirming the scripture that came before it,and guarding it in safety…” (Qur’an, Al-Maidah:48).
Muslims believe that this world will come to an end on a day ALLAH has appointed.
“Every soul shall have a taste of death; and only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense…” (Qur’an, Ali Imran:185).
Everything will be demolished, and all of the human beings who had lived in this world will then be restored to life and will be presented before ALLAH.
The entire record of every man and woman – of all their deeds and misdeeds – will be presented before ALLAHfor final judgment.
One who excels in goodness will, by the Mercy of ALLAH, receive a goodly reward; one whose wrongs overweigh his good deeds will be punished.
It is neither faith nor just to treat everyone equally.
“Is then the man who believes no better than the man who is rebellious and wicked? Not equal are they” (Qur’an, As-Sajda:18).
ALLAHon that day will judge with Justice, and every soul will receive what it has earned. While unsure of their fate in the Hereafter, Muslims are confident of the Mercy and Justice of ALLAH.
“Say: ‘Oh My servants who have transgressed against their own souls! Despair not of the Mercy of ALLAH, for ALLAH forgives all sins, for He is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (Qur’an, Az-Zumar:53).
Those who emerge successfully from Judgment will go to eternal Paradise; those who are condemned and deserve punishment will be sent to Hell. ALLAHis the perfect and fair Judge.
In Islam, faith and good works go hand-in-hand. A mere verbal declaration of faith is not enough, for belief in ALLAH makes obedience to Him a duty. Only when your practice is consistent with your profession will you be a true Muslim. Faith in ALLAH will be your strength, and the Qur’an your guide.
The Muslim concept of worship is very broad. Muslims consider everything they do in this life according to ALLAH’s will, an act of worship. Speaking the truth, refraining from gossip, dealing honestly in commercial affairs, treating one’s parents with respect and honor, helping the poor and needy, dealing lovingly and fairly with family members – whatever is done will be only for the sake of ALLAH Azzawajal.
