Muslim believes and faith

Muslims believe in the oneness of God and the name of religion they follow is Islam. Almost everybody is familiar with this name as this is not a new religion. It is religion which started more than 1400 years ago when Allah (God) sent His Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) on the land of Arab to teach the people about Islam and give them the message of Allah. The religion that was thought by previous prophets such as Jesus, Moses, David, Ibrahim, & other prophets. In the Quran Allah informs us: "Lo! We inspire thee (Muhammad) as We inspired Noah and the prophets after him, as We inspired Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and Jesus and Job and Jonah and Aaron and Solomon, and as we imparted unto David the Psalms; And messengers We have mentioned unto thee before and messengers We have not mentioned unto thee; and Allah spake directly unto Moses; Messengers of good cheer and off warning, in order that mankind might have no argument against Allah after the messengers. Allah was ever Mighty, Wise" Quran(4:163-165).

Allah also revealed His Holy Book Quran on His Beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). This Holy Quran contained message from Allah for his creature, man. The basic concept of Islam was to believe in the oneness of Allah. To believe that there is no one else but Allah to be worshiped and to be praised only. The Holy Quran told the human being that this whole universe has been created by Allah in a single week. He is the creator of everything. He is the sovereign leader of this universe.

He has created the earth, heavens and everything else in between. He is monitoring each and everything. Having firm belief in all these concepts, a Muslim leads his/her life according to the Will of Almighty Allah. Islam teaches all principles to lead a prosperous life.

Islam is a religion of peace and gives the lesson of equality and does not discriminate on the basis of cast and color. According to Islam all human being are equal. They have equal rights in society. They have equal right of education etc. Allah sent His Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to guide His men about the right path and to forbid them from the wrong path. Now itís the duty of the Muslims to follow the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). He was indeed a great reformer of all times. Our beloved prophet Mohamed (SAW) said in a Hadith: "O people! Your God is one and your forefather (Adam) is one. An Arab is not better than a non-Arab and a non-Arab is not better than an Arab, and a red person is not better than a black person and a black person is not better than a red person, except in piety". There lot verses in Quran that commands the believer to stand for justice. In the Quran Allahs tells us: "O mankind, We have created you from a male and a female and have made you into nations and tribes for you to know one another. Truly, the noblest of you with God is the most pious. Truly, God is All-Knowing, All-Aware" Quran (49:13)

The Muslims believe in Allah and His Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).
They also believe in the Holy Book of Allah the Holy Quran revealed to His beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Muslims believe in the day when everything will be destroyed and this life will come to end. That is called the day of Qayyamat. To face that day Allah has advised man to offer Namaz along with other prayers and good deeds. Islam is a very flexible religion and is a religion of harmony and guides its followers to create peace in the society.

The faiths of Muslims are very strong. Muslims believe that Allah Almighty created each and every thing in the world. Allah Almighty is the owner of everything. Allah Almighty sent humans in the world to worship Allah Almighty. This live is temporary and will come to end in short span. Allah Almighty gives us chance to make our life better and peaceful.

After death God will ask about our life. Humans will receive rewards or punishments based on their deeds while they were living in this temporary life.
