  • The word Islam is an Arabic word meaning peace, submission and obedience. In the religious context the word Islam means total submission to the Will of God and obedience to His Law.

    ISLAM What does it mean?

    *

  • Islam is not a new religion. It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which Allah revealed to all previous prophets and messengers.They all were submitted to God and have called their people to worship and serve the same God, the Creator and the Sustainer of the universe.

    *

  • One God One Religion"The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah - that which We have sent by inspiration to thee - and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: Namely, that ye should remain steadfast in religion, and make no divisions therein: " (42:13)

  • Not a messenger did We send before thee without this inspiration sent by Us to him: that there is no god but I; therefore worship and serve Me. Quran (21:25)

    *

  • And this was the legacy that Abraham left to his sons, and so did Jacob; "Oh my sons! Allah hath chosen the Faith for you; then die not except in the state of submission (i.e. Islam) Quran (2:132)

    *

  • According to the Gospel Jesus (pbuh) called his people to surrender to the will of God (which Islam stands for), he taught them that only those who submit will inherit paradise and he pointed out that he himself submitted to the will of God:Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, may your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. [Luke, (11:2) / Matthew (6:9-10)]"None of those who call me "Lord' will enter the kingdom of God, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven" (Matthew 7:21)"I can not do anything of myself. I judge as I hear and my judgment is honest because I am not seeking my own will but the will of Him who sent me." (John 5:30)

    Thus Jesus, like the prophets before him and the one who came after him, taught the religion of ISLAM: Submission to the will of the one true God.

  • O ye who believe! bow down, prostrate yourselves, and adore your Lord; and do good; that ye may prosper. (QURAN 22:77).And he (Jesus) went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed... (MATTHEW 26:39).

    And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship... (JOSHUA 5:14).

    And they (Moses and Aaron) fell upon their faces... (NUMBERS 20:6).

    And Abraham fell on his face (GENESIS 17:3).Muslims performing sujood (prostration) during their prayer.

    *

  • Say ye: "We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Abraham, Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and that given to Moses and Jesus, and that given to (all) prophets from their Lord: We make no difference between one and another of them: And we bow to Allah (in Islam). Quran (2:136)

    *

  • The rock that falls by the force of gravity is muslim; so are the sun, the moon, the stars, the mountains, the oceans, the trees, the animals, so too is humankind as a whole. All submit to the will of their creator.

    Animate and inanimate creatures (biologically and physically) are regarded as muslims in the sense that all, willingly or unwillingly, are subject to the Divine laws which are devised by God in nature and cannot escape from them.

    *

  • Fitrah = Innate Nature (Sinless and submitted to the will of God i.e. Muslim) Abu Hurayrah reported that he heard the Prophet saying:Every child is born in a state of Fitrah, then his parents make him a Jew or a Christian.It is like the way you help animals give birth. Do you find among their offspring a branded one until you brand them yourselves? Collected by Al Bukhari

  • Do they seek for other than the Religion of Allah? while all creatures in the heavens and on earth have, willing or unwilling, bowed to His Will (Accepted Islam), and to Him shall they all be brought back. Quran (3:83)

    *

  • Who can be better in religion than one who submits his whole self to Allah, does good, and follows the way of Abraham the true in Faith?Quran (4:125)

    *

  • How strange that in every special case one praises one's own way!If Islam means:"surrender into God's will"it's in Islam that we all live and die. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

  • "Sense of justice is one of the most wonderful ideals of Islam, because as I read in the Qur'an I find those dynamic principles of life, not mystic but practical ethics for the daily conduct of life suited to the whole world."Sarojini Naidu, Lectures on "The Ideals of Islam", see Speeches and Writings of Sarojini Naidu, Madras, 1918, p. 167:Famous Indian Feminist and Poet

  • Now the least you could do as thinking and concerned human being is to stop for a moment and ask yourself: Could these statements sounding so extraordinary and revolutionary be really true? Islam teaches that God has given man the faculty of reason and therefore expects man to reason for himself. To reflect to question and to reflect.Dont let others judge for you, be independent, objective, open minded and discover the truth and the beauty of Islam by yourself.Islam blames those who follow blindly the steps of their forefathers as it is stated in the following verse:

    *

  • When it is said to them: "Follow what Allah hath revealed:" They say: "Nay! we shall follow the ways of our fathers." What! even though their fathers Were void of wisdom and guidance?May your intellectual journey towards the TRUTH be a pleasant one.This Presentation was edited by Gh.FaridQuran (2:170)
