Part 3: What Islam Is

Allah our Creator have us 5 principles to live by as a guide:

  1. To bear witness to Allah our Creator and His Messenger
  2. the daily Prayers
  3. Charity
  4. Fasting in Ramadhan
  5. Hajj.

ISLAM is penetrate through AL-QUR’AN and Hadeeth.

ISLAM is the divine way of life that was sent down by Allah our Creator though his Prophets or Messengers, men who conveyed upon us the Truth about the Purpose of life for people who have belief and who have the intellect. It is only Allah our Creator who can put that light in a person’s heart to believe. The Al-Qur’an mention 25 person Prophet and Messengers, and Hadeeth of Prophet Muhammad PBUH mentions there are 124 000 Prophets of Allah our Creator, but the success of Muhammad PBUH peoples is what will be highlighted. Islam is the Law from Allah our Creator.

Allah our Creator is the one unique God Who no equal. As Allah our Creator says in the Holy Qur’an (112 Surah AL-Ikhlas)

  1. Say: He is Allah our Creator, the one and only.
  2. Allah our Creator, the Eternal, Absolute.
  3. He begetteth not, nor is He begotten.
  4. And there is none unto Him. Explanation Qur’an (112:1-4) Surah AL-Ikhlas.

We look at the theory of One, but when you look at the concept from a worldly point of view, anything can be one. But in Islam, Allah our Creator is just described as THE ONE in the concept of how HE does not come close to our imagination of HIM. He is the one that ETERNAL, meaning he does not have a parent, nor he ever had any children and “HE IS UNIQUE” and does not resemble any of HIS creation. Al-Qur’an and Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad PBUH are guides and the Quran is guidance and a miracle that will remain until the Hereafter.

Allah also teaches us to supplicate towards Him in the first chapter of the Qur’an: Surah Al- Fatihah (1:1-7).

1. In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

2. In the name of Allah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.

3. All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the worlds – The Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful,

4. Sovereign of the Day of Recompense

5. It is You we worship and You we ask for help.

6. Guide us to the straight path –

7. The path of those upon whom You have bestowed favor, not of those who have evoked [Your] anger or of those who are astray.

In the prayers, which are made at least 5 times a day, and the Al-Fatihah is recited at least 17 times a day, Muslims recite to what means:

Verily, I have turned my face towards Allah who created the Heavens and the Earth, worshipping none but Allah alone, and I am not of the hypocrites. Verily, my prayer, my sacrifice, my living, my dying is for Allah the Lord of the Worlds. He has no partner. And of this I have been commanded, and of the Muslims. (Surah Al-An’ am:

It is also supplicated in prayers that:

be of those who forget the deen for worldly gain.
We ask Allah to make us sincere and steadfast in our actions, and to not become complacent and engulfed in worldly gain. If we are able, have mercy on those who are in need and be generous to them, and avoid being greedy towards them.

Prophet Muhammad PBUH mentioned in Hadeeth Muslim will be split 73 sects and the only one name of Muslim only that Allah our Creator will accept and will be pleased, Al-Qur’an mentions in so many places, we then ask?

That 72 sects are will be “condemned” by Allah our Creator. These labels distance us away from Islam, because these are incorrect innovations; which potentially lead to the evil misleading “factionalism”.

There are so many reasons, which are attributed for “political gain” and a particular purpose; there has been a split 72 sectors of Islam which include Shiah, Salafism, Sufism, Sunni, Islam democratic, Islam Nusantara, Islam Liberal and so on.

Dalil, Al-Qur’an (6:159) Surah Al-An’am.

As for those who divide their religion and break up into sects, thou hast no part in them in the least: their affair is with Allah: He will in the end tell them the truth of all that they did.
