ISLAM AND MUSLIMS: The basic Principles of Islam.

The True Meaning of Islam

The word Islam means submission to the will of Allah(God) and a Muslim is he who submits to the will of Allah.

Islam is a religion, which can be followed easily by everyone, everywhere, in a day to day life.

It is the religion of every Prophet of Allah from Adam to Mohammed, and is as old as humanity. In fact, every child that is born is a Muslim. It is the parents that make him a different religion.

Allah has sent numerous Prophets to all the nations and races. As the human race progressed, the Prophets were sent with the laws that suited the requirements of that time. Each new Prophet brought a new Devine Law, which abrogated or cancelled the previous Law.

Mohammed is the last Prophet of Allah and he has brought the last and most perfect Law in the Holy Qur'an. History shows us, that this Law has suîted the requirements of the people for the last 1400 years plus and shall continue to do so till the Day of Resurrection.

Islam is a way of life. It is a simple and uncomplicated religion, giving one maximum freedom without encroaching on the freedom of others. It enjoins one to believe in One God, and do good; to keep up prayers and pay the poor rate; to fast during the month of Ramadan; to perform the Haj and to fight for the sake of Allah wherever necessary; to believe in the justice of Allah, in the life after death, in the prophethood of Mohammed and the teachings of the twelve Apostolic Imams. Islam forbids evil and tyranny, prohibits intoxications and games of chance, adultery and indecencies, and blood and flesh of swine and dead animals. " The is no compulsion in religion" and there are no harsh and hard rituals or unreasonable dogmas in Islam.


Among many reforms which the Prophet of Islam gave to the world, he taught that all human beings whether brown, black, red, white or yellow, are sons of Adam and no man had any superiority over another man because of his colour, rank or riches.

He taught:-

"" The most honourable man in the sight of Allah, is he, who is most careful of his duty to Allah and that man has rights only to the extent of the duties, he performs.""

Education AND REFLECTION

1. It is not everyone bearing a Muslim name is a true Muslim.

2. It is specifically mentioned in the Islamic scriptures that any one who kill another innocent human being is taken as he has killed all humanity and anyone who save the live of one human being is as though he has save all humanity.

3. In Islam, one prays directly to God. Repent ones sins from God and ask for forgiveness and Insha Allah, He will.

4. Muslims believe that whatever that happens to a person is from Allah.
