Concept of Islam

Allah is our Lord

There is but only one God, Supreme and Eternal, Infinite and Mighty, Merciful and Compassionate, Creator and Provider. We must have complete trust and hope in God, submission to His Will and reliance on His help. This belief secures man’s dignity and saves him from fear and despair. Man is best creature of God and is loved by God.

The Merciful and Loving God has not only created Man to be the best of His creations but has made arrangements for his guidance. He created man from a male and a female and made him into nations and tribes that they may know one another. Verily, the most honorable in the sight of God is the one who is most righteous, fears God, abstains from all kinds of evil deeds, which are forbidden by God, loves God much and performs good deeds which are ordained by God.

Allah has sent Prophets for guiding the Mankind

God sent prophets to all nations or tribes to teach them what is "good deeds" and "evil deeds". All the prophets were men of good character and high honor. They were prepared and chosen by God to deliver His message to mankind. Their honesty and truthfulness are beyond doubt. All prophets guided man to one God and to His path. Noah (peace be upon him) was a prophet. Abraham, Ishmael, Ishaq, Jacob, Moses, Jesus (peace be upon them all) were prophets. Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the last of the prophets of God.

Allah guided prophets through revelations

The revelations are in the form of scriptures or collections of sayings of the prophets. The last of the scripture is Quran which was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Many scriptures were altered or rewritten but Quran remains completely unaltered.

Last Day of Judgment

The life in this world is short. All have to die. This world will come to an end. Then all will be brought to the Lord for a fair trial for their deeds performed in this world. Those whose good deeds exceed their bad deeds will be rewarded. And those whose bad deeds exceed their good deeds will be punished. And no injustice will be done. However, any one who repents earnestly and seeks forgiveness of God after doing bad deeds is forgiven by God and his bad deeds are changed into good deeds. God is Most Merciful.
