Al-Islam, The One & Only Religion That Covers EveryDay Life!

"This Day I Have Perfected Your Religion For You,Completed My Favour Upon You,And Chosen For You Islam As Your Religion."The Holy Qur'an (Surah 5, Verse 3)


Islam is just so easy....


the rules are there for us to follow, not to oppress not to be cruel... just simply to guide us through our life here on earth in the correct way.

If we follow the rules that Allah gave to us we cannot be wrong... we may stray occasionally for we are Human... and Allah knows this which is why he gave us prayer so that we may praise and love and ask forgiveness of him. .... and Allah is all forgiving.....


Who is Allah?

A Poem written by a sister...

 What is Islam ?

Poem written by : Maymoonah MS Adly

"What is Islam?” is the question you ask.
Answering this question is every Muslims task.

Describing Islam can be a lot, 
But first I’ll tell you what Islam is not.

Islam is not Faraqan and terrorism.
Nor is it oppressing women and racism.

Islam doesn’t teach these things.
On t...he contrary it forbids them.

Islam isn’t focused on selling news papers and bean pies.
It’s not about drinking goats milk and having many wives.

Most people think Islam is just a religion.
But, it is actually a detailed way of living, prescribed by Allah, the merciful, the forgiving.

Peace, submission, and morality,Respect, kindness and charity.
And worshipping one God, the All Mighty, This is Islam.

It demolishes the cloudiness and confusion in our brains.
Faith in God is one thing Islam sustains.

It makes clear our purpose of life, beginning and end.
People take our wealth and freedom, but our faith we must defend


3 Statements to describe Islam.

PEACE - As in other Abrahamic religions, peace is a basic concept in Islamic thought. The Arabic term "Islam" itself (إسلام) is usually translated as "submission"; submission of desires to the will of God. It comes from the term aslama, which means "to surrender" or "resign oneself"

Love- is one of the greatest blessings Allah has bestowed on humanity. Allah has created human nature in such a way that a person will take pleasure from loving and being loved, from friendship and from intimacy.

Harmony - ISLAM: THE RELIGION OF UNIVERSAL HARMONY To be at peace with the Earth one must be at peace with himself and this is not possible without being at peace with Heaven.

Finally the first word in the Holy Qu'ran are alif-laam-meem..literally these are letters of the Arabic alphabet... it is believed that it is to draw your attention to the contents.. the following word is READ..

Sura 96 first ayah:

Read in the name of your Lord Who created. (1)

Therefore we see before us the equivalent of

A.B.C Read in the name of your lord who created.....

the message given is read and educate yourselves.

May God help us all find the true faith ISLAM. . . . . 

Ameen.

Thank you Rossimobis,

I too love all people. We are all here but one time, and our time here is very short, why then cannot everyone open their hearts to their fellow man...The world is in great need of love no matter the colour creed we all have the same needs... life is precious ...and should be cherished.

All would do well to remember ... treat others as you would want to be treated.

I am a Christian within the Baptist denomination, but this really helped me to understand Islam better. I wasn't aware of how similar it is to Christianity. May you all be blessed tremendously.
