Major beliefs of Islam
As described by scholars in Islam, surrendering completely to the will of Allah and abiding with laws is what Islam all about.
Oneness of God
Muslims strongly believe that there is only one creator of all things which is none other than Allah. He knowns everything and powerful in making things happen. God has no partner, no children and has no need to be fulfilled. As mentioned in Quran,
“He is God, the One. God, to Whom the creatures turn for their needs. He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is none like Him.” (Quran, 112:1-4) Source
Believe in God’s Angel
One such honoured creatures whose existence is believed by Muslims. They worship God and obey his sayings and fulfils his command. And angel Gabriel is the leader to all other angels.
Book of Islam
The holy book Quran is sent by God to his messenger Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) as a guidance to entire mankind. And it is also mentioned in Quran that God himself takes responsibility in protecting Quran from haters. This is sadi in Quran as,
Indeed, we have sent down the Quran, and surely we will guard it (from corruption (Quran, 15:9) Source
Believe in God’s messengers
Starting from Adam (the very first messenger of God) Muslims believe in every messenger till the last messenger Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). And it is mentioned in Quran that no more Prophets will be sent to the world after Prophet Muhammed (PBUH). Here is the verse,
Muhammad is not the father of any one of your men, but he is the Messenger of God and the last of the prophets… (Quran, 33:40) Source
And none of the Prophets has equal divine compared to God.
Believe in Judgement day
Day of judgement is one of most trusted belief among Muslims. Day in which every single human being on earth will be resurrected based on their deeds.
Belief in Al-Qadar
Al-Qadar, which is otherwise known as predestination. Adhering divine predestination is not something opposite to freewill. Muslims do have right to choose good and bad, but they are responsible for their choice.
Peace is the only key to open door of prosperity. With that said it can’t achieved through just saying and preaching. It must be felt from the soul and must be refreshed every day.
Islam naturally propagates peace with its strict laws which can lead to longevity of tranquillity with other religions of the world.
One who indulge in cause for disrupting the peace he/she loses the status of being a Muslim.
