Sectarianism

Allah said in Chapter Al ^Imran, Ayah 110 means: [You are the best of the nations that were brought to the people commanding the lawful and forbidding the unlawful.] Also, al-Hakim related the Prophet said which means:

"If you see my nation fearful of telling he who is unjust, 'You are unjust,'--then know the support of Allah is withdrawn from them".

Thus in Islam warning from the wrong is a must. The Prophet ordered us to command the lawful and forbid the unlawful. He said what means:

 "He who does not respect the elderly among us, is not merciful to the youngsters among us, and does not command the lawful and forbid the unlawful is not following our methodology."

Abu ^Ali ad-Daqqaq said "The one who is silent from telling the truth is a mute devil" so warning from the evil and the wrong is a Must  in Islam. And so you will find detailed articles and refutations to misguided sects such as the Wahhabis so-called Salafis, Hizb al-Ikhwan and Hizb at-Tahrir and other extremists who claim to be Sunnis but in reality have hidden agendas to promote their extreme beliefs that no Muslim accepts.

Islamic ethics

Islamic Ethics

Islam encourages all people to behave with dignity and do only good deeds, for which they will never be ashamed. Allah Almighty sent the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, as an example to all mankind and gave Him all the excellent qualities that people can only possess. He had a high culture of behavior, modesty, good behavior, politeness, tact, kindness and mercy. He always acted according to his conscience, that is, he was just and did not oppress other people.

Allah Almighty praised the Prophet in the Holy Qur'an (Surah Al-Kalam, Ayat 4): 


وَإِنَّكَ لَعَلَى خُلُقٍ عَظِيمٍ

This means:

"Indeed, you have the greatest morality."

The concept of "morality" includes many good qualities, including shame and conscience. This is a religious culture. And this feeling arises from high spirituality and strong faith.

When a Muslim hears the voice of conscience, it affects his behavior and reflects on his life, both religious and social. This quality instills in a person a love of fear of God and everything that strengthens the Faith, prompts him to do good deeds, and it also repels him from vicious deeds and sins.


Abu Hurayrah, may Allah have mercy on him, conveyed Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be on him:

الإِيمَانُ بُضْعٌ وَسِتُّونَ شُعْبَةً

أَعْلاَهَا لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللهُ وَأَدْنَاهَا م الطَّرِيقِ وَالْحَيَاءُ شُعْبَةٌ مِنَ الإِيمَانِ

This means:

"Iman has more than sixty branches, the highest of which is" La ilaha illallah ", that is," There is no other deity but Allah. "And the lowest branch is the removal of an obstacle from the road. And conscience is also one of the branches of Iman. " That is, conscience is one of the ways of manifesting the Faith.



In Islam, conscience is an excellent quality, and it does not at all mean isolation, limitation, notoriousness, inferiority. And this is not laziness, inaction and detachment, not weakness and not a manifestation of humiliation.

Truly, conscience is a manifestation of strong faith in Allah, as well as truthful words, honesty towards Allah and to people. And also these are good deeds in this world. Conscience is study and teaching, good education and ethics, it is a way of life. Conscience is the strength and determination to defend the truth and uphold the principles of justice. Conscience, as scholars have said, is a moral urge that keeps a person from committing sin. And since conscience is a quality of high culture, then all the Prophets, peace be upon them, were the most conscientious of people.

The customs of great people are great customs. The qualities of great people are great qualities. The qualities of the prophets are the finest, superior qualities. Therefore, follow the example of our Prophet and try to learn and adopt His culture and morality.

The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, said:

إِنَّ مِمَّا أَدْرَكَ النَّاسُ مِنْ كَلاَمِ 


النُّبُّوَّةِ الأُولىَ إِذَا لَمْ تَسْتَحِ فَاصْنَعْ مَا شِئْتَ

This means:

“One of the sayings that people have kept from the previous Prophets, peace be upon them:“ Do not do that, for which you will be ashamed. " Literally, the text of this Hadith says: "Do what you want, if you are not ashamed."This does not mean permission to commit sins, but means condemnation of the one who is not ashamed and does what is forbidden by the Shari'aqat. That is, this Hadith encourages people to be shy and to act according to their conscience.



The feeling of shame prevents you from committing vile deeds, sins and violations. And also a bashful person will not observe with interest how other people sin or gladly talk about it. Unfortunately, in our time in modern society, shame, conscience, modesty, chastity and other virtues are considered a sign of backwardness, and few people call for this.

In fact, modesty, shyness and shyness are excellent qualities. The greatest of all the creations of Allah, the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, fully possessed these qualities. Abu Saamiyid Al-Khudriy, may Allah have mercy on him, conveyed that the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was more modest and shy than the girl sitting behind the curtain in her own house. And if He saw something unpleasant, then we immediately noticed it on his face.

There are two types of shyness. Commendable bashfulness is a restraining barrier, an obstacle that suppresses the cravings of nafs, keeps from sinful passions. Scientists said that first of all, a person should be ashamed of Allah, that is, keep himself from sin, knowing that the Creator sees everything.

And the second kind of bashfulness is false bashfulness, which is a negative quality. False bashfulness is, for example, not fulfilling one's duties, embarrassing people, or refraining from calling for good or forbidding evil.

Conscience is a powerful weapon against evil. He who does not possess this quality is accessible to every vice. Therefore, strengthen your bashfulness in yourself, because it protects you from temptations and committing what you will regret on the Day of Judgment.

Be God-fearing, obey the orders of Allah and do not violate the prohibitions. 

What is Islam?

ISLAM
This is the Arabic name for the religion of Monotheism, which all the Prophets professed and called for. And also Islam is the religion of Angels, which they professed even before the creation of people.

God sent Prophets to different nations and they called people to Islam in different languages. And since the last Prophet was an Arab, and the last Holy Book was revealed in the Arabic language, then many religious terms are taken from the Arabic language. For example, the general meaning of the word "Islam" is belief in God and His Prophets, "Allah" is the name of God in Arabic, and "Muslim" is a believer.

 

The foundations of Islam include belief in the One-One God, Angels, Prophets and the Heavenly Books sent down by Him, as well as belief in fate, that both good and evil are created by God, belief in resurrection after death, on the Day of Judgment, in eternal torment in hell for unbelievers and eternal prosperity in Paradise for believers.

 

Faith in One God

Muslims believe that God is the only Creator, and everything else was created by Him, that is, it appeared in being and has the beginning of its existence.
God created the entire universe, including space and time. And the one who created space and time is not himself connected with them.

 

♦  It is not connected with time - it means that it does not have the beginning of Its Existence, does not disappear and does not change.

♦  Not connected with space - this means that God is not in any place and does not fill the entire space entirely.

♦ God is neither an object (tangible or intangible) nor a property of an object. God is not a body and not a spirit, he cannot be called mind, strength, love, law, since all these are creatures or their qualities.

♦ God is not like anyone or anything, His Essence is not comprehensible to the mind, and He cannot be represented in any image. God is absolutely not like the created - neither by His essence, nor by attributes, nor by deeds.

♦ He is an omniscient and omnipotent Creator, does not need anyone or anything, He does not have weaknesses and shortcomings. And only He is worthy of worship.

 

The path of salvation

The greatest and most honorable duty of man is true faith in God! Without it, there is no salvation, and good deeds will not be accepted. This is why it is important to be a Muslim!

Converting to Islam is easy - it doesn't take a lot of time, a special place or special conditions. If a person understood the above and recognized Monotheism, then in order to accept Islam, he needs to pronounce aloud the Islamic testimonies:

"There is no creator but One God, Muhammad is the Messenger of God" 

Please note that the name of the Prophet "Muhammad" must be pronounced correctly, otherwise the testimony will not be considered valid. The letter "x" in this name should be pronounced softly, with a breath. And if a person does not know how to pronounce the word "Muhammad" correctly, then he can say another name of the Prophet Muhammad, for example, "Abu-l-Gasim" (with a solid "g" and a lingering "a").

 The word "testimony" does not mean that a person needs witnesses to accept Islam. "Testimony" in this case means confirmation in words of a belief that a person has received in his heart.

♦ To accept Islam, you do not need to go to a mosque, or look for an imam, or look for other Muslims, or perform any additional actions (do ablution or receive detailed knowledge).

♦  After a person accepts Islam, God forgives him all the sins he had committed before.

♦ To accept Islam means to take the path of all the Prophets and save yourself from hell. And the one who has understood and recognized the truth, in no case should he postpone the adoption of Islam for fear that he will not be able to perform rituals, or does not have deep knowledge, or does not know the Arabic language.

♦ Muslims want all people to come to true faith and be joyful in eternal life. Islam is the greatest gift from the Creator, and blessings are for those who recognize the truth and keep the Faith until the end of their days!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Islamic Creed

Summary of the foundations of the Islamic faith


Man is endowed with reason, and this is what makes him different from many other creatures!

Reason is the ability to distinguish truth from error, right from wrong, good from bad, useful from harmful.

Therefore, a person, as a rational being, is obliged to use this gift to comprehend the meaning of his life and get answers to the most important questions.

the most important thing that our mind can comprehend is the belief that this world has a creator - Almighty God.

                                                                     The Creed of the Messenger of Allah

 

The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, said: <>. In his book „al-Asma’ was-Sifat’ (The Names and Attributes of Allah) the Imam and Hafidh, Ahmad Ibn al-Husayn al-Bayhaqiyy (died 458 AH) said:

“Some of our companions used the saying of the Prophet: <> as evidence to refute the allocation of the concept of place to Allah, they concluded that since there is nothing above Him and nothing beneath Him, therefore, He exists without a place”.

The Messenger of Allah, peace be upon him, also said:

<>. In his book “al-I^tiqad” (The Creed) Imam al-Bayhaqiyy said when elucidating the meaning of this Hadith: “This indicates that eternally nothing existed other than Allah; no water, no ^Arsh (The Throne) and no other creation, they are all classified as other than Allah”.
