Muslim Religion Islam History and Concept
Islam History There are variety and the vast amount of records to study the history of Islam and it’s concept. The pious life of The Messenger of Allah Taala and Our Beloved Muhammad (SAW) has played a great role in creating the history of the Islam. Let us began by clarifying that for us Muslim religion Islam is not the name of some unique faith presented for the first time by Muhammad (PBUH).
The Quran makes it abundantly clear that the Islam the complete submission of man before Allah is the one and only faith consistently revealed by Allah to mankind from the very beginning. Noah, Abraham, Moses and Christ, prophets who appeared at different times and places all propagated the same faith. They were each reiterating in the faith of their predecessors.
Among the fundamentals of Muslim and their religion Islam, the most important is belief in one God, which is also known as ‘Tawheed‘ – not the just the conviction that he exists or that he is one – but that He alone is the creator, master, Ruler, and Administrator of all the exits. The universe exists because Allah wills it to exist; it functions because Allah Wills it to function and Allah provides the sustenance and the energy which everything of the universe requires for its existence and growth. All the attributes of Sovereignty reside in Allah alone, and no one else has a share in them in the slightest compare.
This omnipresence and omniscience is an attribute of Allah alone and of no other. There is nobody ‘before’ Allah and There is no one ‘after’ Him. He has always and will be. All else is transient. Allah Is alone eternal.
He is no one’s progeny. Whatever exists, His own creation and no other can identify in any manner with the Lord of the universe, or claim to be his son or daughter. He is man’s single deity. To associate anyone in His worship is a great a sin as an act of infidelity. He responds to man’s prayers and Allah is alone and he has the power to accept or reject them.
Belief in the hereafter divides people into three distinct categories.
- First, there are those who do not believe in the hereafter and regard life on this earth as the only life. Naturally, they judge good and evil by the result which manifests themselves in this world.
- If an action produces beneficial results it is good, and if it brings about the harmful result it is evil. Quite often the same action is regarded as good when the results are good and bad when its results are bad.
- Second, those people who do not deny the thereafter, but who depend on the intercession or atonement of someone to absolve them of their sins.
- Among them, there are some, who regard themselves as God’s chosen people, who will receive only nominal punishment, however, grave their sins. This deprives them of the moral advantage which they could have derived from their belief in the hereafter. As a result, people who deny the Hereafter.
- Third one’s, those people who believe in the hereafter in the form which is Islam presents it. They do not delude themselves that they have any special relationship with Allah, or that anyone can intercede on their behalf.
- They know that they alone are responsible for their actions. For them, the belief in the hereafter becomes a great moral force.
