Islam (an Arabic term meaning “peace and submission”) is the name given by ALLAH Almighty to the religion revealed by Him to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of ALLAH be on him) through the Holy Quran. It means the achievement of peace through the surrender of one’s will according to the Will of ALLAH Almighty. A person who submits and follows the laws of Islam is well known as Muslim.
OBJECT OF HUMAN CREATION
ALLAH Almighty says in the Holy Quran Verse 51:57;
I do not want from them any provision, nor do I want them to feed Me.
The real purpose of a human being’s life is the worship of ALLAH Almighty, the achievement of His understanding and complete devotion to Him. A person must follow Him perfectly, ALLAH Almighty has created human beings with the faculties that are suitable for this aim, and revealed the Holy Quran so that he may seek forgiveness of ALLAH Almighty through it. Therefore, a Muslim’s first responsibility is to worship
ALLAH Almighty and to follow His commands. This is well-known as “Haquq-ALLAH.” Muslims second responsibility is to serve humanity, “Haquq-al-Ibaad,” for this is part of ibadat (worship). A Muslim can show his love for His Creator by expressing compassion and love for all His creation.
THE ARTICLES OF FAITH (IMAAN)
These are the six basic principles of faith (iman) which form the foundation for a Muslim’s faith or belief, understanding and practice of Islam. The Holy Quran states that one must believe in ALLAH Almighty, the Last Day Qaymat, the Angels (farishtey), His books and His prophets. It also states that ALLAH Almighty alone determines His Decree. Holy Qur’an, verse 2:178;
O you who have believed, prescribed for you is legal retribution for those murdered – the free for the free, the slave for the slave, and the female for the female. But whoever overlooks from his brother anything, then there should be a suitable follow-up and payment to him with good conduct. This is an alleviation from your Lord and a mercy. But whoever transgresses after that will have a painful punishment.
Verse 25:3 of Holy Quran;
But they have taken besides Him gods which create nothing, while they are created, and possess not for themselves any harm or benefit and possess not [power to cause] death or life or resurrection.
