    Default Islam

    In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful


    The word Islam is derived from an Arabic word (salaam: peace) and it means: Total submission to the will of Allah (God)The one who submits to the will of his creator God is called a Muslim.

    To become a Muslim, one only has to believe and accept the oneness of Allah(God) and testify that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah(God) and that Muhammad is Allah’s(God’s) last messenger and prophet. A person has to understand and accept the following principles:

    • This material world is not the be- all and end-all of existence and life in this world is only part of the eternal life.

    • Everything in this world has been created from nothingness by the One God, God Almighty

    • God is the only One who grants life and causes death. It is He who created everything, and if He wishes; He will destroy and obliterate it;

    • God has endowed man with the power of intellect to deal with whatever matters he is presented with and he has given him the power of reasoning with which he can make his own choice and will power to enable him to achieve what he wants

    • Allah(God) is the sole creator of everything, He is the One who has created all the material beings that we can see and feel, and has also created unseen beings, some animate and others inanimate;

    • Among the unseen beings are the angels who have been created for absolute good;

    • And then there are the satans who have been created as dark and negative forces

    • Amongst human beings , God selected certain people to whom the divine law was revealed, so that they can guide humanity towards it ; these people are called prophets for example :Noah ,Abraham ,Jesus, Muhammad(the last and final prophet)…

    • This divine law is contained in all the books revealed from the heavens for example: The Torah revealed to Moses, the Psalms revealed to David , the Gospel revealed to Jesus , the Qur’an revealed to Muhammad

    • The Qur’an is the last and final book and all the other books and their divine laws were abrogated by the Qur’an

    • Allah(God) created an eternal life beyond this temporary life, where the doer of good will be rewarded with a life in paradise and the wrong doer will be rewarded with a life in hell

    • Allah(Almighty God) is completely just in a way that cannot be assessed in human terms

    • Anyone who repents then his/her repentance will be accepted and Allah(God) is Merciful and ever forgiving no matter ho big the sin is

    "The Qur’an is the last and final book and all the other books and their divine laws were abrogated by the Qur’an"

    The Koran came to confirm the previous scriptures and not abrogate it. You will never find the Koran stating something like this.
    Among His signs are the creation of Heaven and Earth, as well as the diversity in your tongues and colors. In that are signs for those who know

    It Confirmed and abrogated and you will find the Qur'an saying this and not the Koran.Abrogation simply meaning we don't pass a glance at the previous scriptures as sources of Law.When praying we do not go to the Gospel, The torah nor the Psalms; when we want to fast we do not look at the three nor fast as they did; we look at the Qur'an: and that's abrogation.
    1)Jacob was allowed to marry two sisters at the same time; this is not confirmed by Islam but abrogated

    2)Moses people were ordered to keep and observe the Sabbath; and clearly the Muslims are not.

    Unless maybe you have a different understanding of abrogation!!!

    are you trying to imply that the devils (shayateen) are not real entities ?
    Nine things the Lord has commanded me: Fear of God in private and in public; Justness, whether in anger or in calmness; Moderation in both poverty and affluence; That I should join hands with those who break away from me; And give to those who deprive me; And forgive those who wrong me; And that my silence should be meditation; And my words remembrance of God; And my vision keen observation.- Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

    If the previous divine scriptures were all in their original form , there would be no need for Quran. If Quran was stating everything that was present before then there was no need for Quran. The reason for the coming of Quran is that the previous scriptures are not in their original form. Quran is a guardian (mauhemin) over the previous divine scriptures i.e it confirms that those divine scriptures were revealed by God to his prophets but it also clearly states that there has been interpolation in them. Most importantly it clearly negates Trinity, Christ to be considered God. Quran does not negate everything or every content of the previous scriptures. There are multiple historical stories about which Quran remains silent, Quran quotes similarities with OT in some accounts i.e story of Joesph, there are differences in other accounts, e.g Job, Jonah . No where in Quran is any prophet shown to be disresepctful to God, OT in contrast paints a very different image of both prophets of God and justice of God.

    Islam is a natural way of life that encourages one to give due attention to their relationship with God and His creation. Islam teaches that it is through the doing of good deeds and seeking the pleasure of God that souls find true happiness and peace. It is in this context that the word Islam derives from the root word “salam,” or peace.

    They are real entities and their presence will be there until the Day of Judgement.
