In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
What is Islam?
Islam means peace. It means complete submission to the Will of God (Allah). Complete obedience to Him.
In the Quran, Allah has revealed that mankind and Jinn were created solely for the purpose of worshiping Allah. The One God. The Only God. And Subhan Allah, Allah has given his creation, the mankind free will to obey or to disobey his command. However, no doubt, we’ll be accountable for our actions on the Day when no brother will look at another brother, where no mother will care for her infant, where no sister will come for help, where no father will protect, and where no relatives will support.
Alhumdulillah, Islam is a religion that gives tranquility to the heart. This religion, this peaceful religion brings you closer to God. It makes you a good and a loving person. It gives you patience because you know that Allah, the Almighty will help you wherever you are, and He will give you whatever you ask for as long as it is good.
Allah sent Prophets to teach mankind how to worship Him, how to be obedient to Him and how we can attain the everlasting gardens that is Paradise. Starting from mankind’s father, Adam, then Noah, Moses, Jesus and our last Prophet, Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be upon him) They all thought their people one thing; to worship Allah alone. To not attribute partners to Him.
Islam makes us realize our connection to Allah. A bond that is so simple to achieve once you choose the right path. Islam teaches us to be good to others. To benefit others, to be selfless because if we take care of others, Allah Subhana-wa Ta’alla will take care of us. If we do good to others, Allah will be happy and give us of his goodness.
Islam is a just religion. When you do good, good comes to you, when you do bad, bad comes to you and vice versa. And also while doing good things, our soul discovers true happiness and peace. That’s what Islam is. It’s peace, it’s love, it’s filled with gladness and goodness.
The word Islam derives from the root word, ‘Salam’ which means peace.
