Peace be Upon Those Who Follow the Guidance of God (Allah)

 

Dear Friends,

 

I would like to invite you towards a way of life that our Creator has prescribed for us. Unfortunately, most of us have deviated from the guidance that our Creator gave us for a peaceful and satisfied life. It’s never too late. God loves those who comeback to Him. God (Allah) is the most forgiving and most merciful.  His Grace is waiting for you and for everyone. 

Time to time God sent His prophets and messengers in order to reinforce and remind His guidance. The first man on earth, Adam was a prophet (peace be upon him). Thousands of prophets and messengers came towards humanity including Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon, Moses, Shoaib, Saleh, Zachariah, Jesus Christ and Muhammad (peace be upon all of them). They all gave SINGLE and the same message;

God (Allah) must be worshiped alone (without any partners) and people must fulfill their obligations (rights and responsibilities) to each other. 

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the final and last messenger of God (Allah) upon whom Allah completed His guidance for the rest of the humanity. The last messenger of Allah (God); Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is a universal prophet. God made him the messenger for all human beings. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) is NOT a prophet for Muslims only. He is the prophet of Allah for all humanity.

Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born more than fourteen centuries ago in Makkah. He was the most kind and merciful messenger of Allah. He established justice and peace for all human beings. He asked his followers to;

 

  • Worship God (Allah) alone and do not associate any partners with Him

  • Be kind and gentle to your parents

  • Be kind and gentle to your wife

  • Be kind and gentle to your children

  • Be kind and gentle to your neighbours and other human beings

  • Be courteous to others

  • Stay in the company of righteous people. Righteousness belongs to heart, not in the appearance

  • Ensure to fulfill your responsibilities towards your Creator

  • Ensure to fulfill your responsibilities towards parents, wife, children, relatives, neighbours and fellow human beings.

 

Allah gave Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the divine guidance in the form of a book. This book is called Qur’an.  Qur’an verifies other divine books such as Torah, Gospel, etc… Qur’an explains the beliefs of believers and warns about the dangers of ignorance and arrogance. Qur’an gives us the news of past present and future.

The way of life that Allah prescribed for all human beings is called ISLAM.  Islam is a common sense and natural way of life. It has no illogical beliefs. Islam is very scientific and has no ambiguities. It is a pure way of life. Islam provides peace of heart and mind. Islam protects environment, dignity and respect for all human beings. Islam removes all false claims of superiority based upon gender, ethnicity, colour, language, wealth, fame, power, vanity, etc…. Islam very strongly condemns racism, discrimination, hate, oppression, violence, terrorism, extremism, fanaticism, etc.

Islam protects the rights of children, women, elderly, rich and poor.   Islam connects human beings to their Lord for eternal peace and harmony.

 

I invite you towards peace, i.e. Islam

Best Regards,
