ISLAM The Religion Of The Future By Shaikh Faisal (August 13 2010)

3.Ramadhan.1431 / 13.Aug. 2010

They intend to put out the Light of Allâh (i.e. the Religion of Islâm, this Qur’ân, and the Prophet Muhammad SAW) with their mouths. But Allâh will bring His Light to perfection even though the disbelievers hate (it). (8) He it is Who has sent His Messenger (Muhammad SAW) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islâmic Monotheism) to make it victorious over all (other) religions even though the Mushrikûn (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh and in His Messenger Muhammed SAW) hate (it). (9) 

(As-Saff 61:8-9)

1. Islamic Concept of God. (Allaah )


Who created Allaah? Answer : Allaah was not created : He has no beggining and has no end! ) 

It is not given to any human being that Allâh should speak to him unless (it be) by Revelation, or from behind a veil, or (that) He sends a Messenger to reveal what He wills by His Leave. Verily, He is Most High, Most Wise. (51) 

{Ash-Shura 42:51}

2. The Miracle of The Quran.

The Most Gracious (Allâh) rose over (Istawâ) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty).(5)

(Ta Ha 20:5)
  Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allâh), will not cause the earth to sink with you, and then it should quake? (16) 

{Al-Mulk 67:16}

Do they not then think deeply in the Qur’ân, or are their hearts locked up (from understanding it)? (24) 

(Muhammad 47:24)

Do they not then consider the Qur’ân carefully? Had it been from other than Allâh, they would surely have found therein many contradictions. (82) 

{An-Nisa 4:82}

He has let loose the two seas (the salt and the fresh water) meeting together. (19) Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress. (20) Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinn and men) deny? (21) Out of them both come out pearl and coral. (22) Then which of the Blessings of your Lord will you both (jinn and men) deny? (23) 

{Ar-Rahman 55:19-23}

* 3. Muslims believe in all the prophets.

The kuffar slander and reject faith in the prophets.

The Messenger (Muhammad SAW) believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allâh, His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. (They say), “We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers” and they say, “We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your Forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all).” (285) 

{Al-Baqara 2:285}

* 4. The Muslims keen sense of Justice.

The Rasool Salah Allaahu alayhe wasalam said : “If you Fatimah should steal I would cut of your hand.”

* 5. Islam is Universal.

You will see this displayed in Hajj!! All races and social status worshipping Allaah in the same way.

* 6. The Ummah. (Brotherhood and Sisterhood)

The believers are nothing else than brothers (in Islâmic religion). So make reconciliation between your brothers, and fear Allâh, that you may receive mercy. (10) 

{Al-Hujraat 49:10}

And (it is also for) those who, before them, had homes (in Al-Madinah) and had adopted the Faith, love those who emigrate to them, and have no jealousy in their breasts for that which they have been given (from the booty of Banu An-Nadîr), and give them (emigrants) preference over themselves, even though they were in need of that. And whosoever is saved from his own covetousness, such are they who will be the successful. (9) 

{Al-Hashr 59:9}

And He has united their (i.e. believers’) hearts. If you had spent all that is in the earth, you could not have united their hearts, but Allâh has united them. Certainly He is All-Mighty, All-Wise. (63) 

{Al-Anfal 8:63}

* 7. Islam gives respect to women.

A woman is amaanah.. A trust from Allaah.

Farewell Sermon.. The Prophet Salah Allaahu alahye wasalam said

“Remember that you have taken them as your wives only under Allah’s trust and with His permission.”

* 8. Islam wages war on poverty

By giving and taking zakah. Riba (Interest/Usury) Is Forbidden.

Communism has been destroyed:

And say: “Truth (i.e. Islâmic Monotheism or this Qur’ân or Jihâd against polytheists) has come and Bâtil (falsehood, i.e. Satan or polytheism) has vanished. Surely! Bâtil is ever bound to vanish.” (81)

{Al-Isra 17:81}

Capitalism and democracy will be soon in their graves!

* 9. Islam has a strong family structure.

All the members of the family have rights over each other.

The parents have rights over their children. The husband over the wife. The wife has her rights over her husband. The children have their rights over the parents.

* 10. Islam is a balanced nation.

Muslims are in the middle of the extremes of the

Thus We have made you [true Muslims - real believers of Islâmic Monotheism, true followers of Prophet Muhammad SAW and his Sunnah (legal ways)], a (just) (and the best) nation, that you be witnesses over mankind[] and the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) be a witness over you. And We made the Qiblah (prayer direction towards Jerusalem) which you used to face, only to test those who followed the Messenger (Muhammad SAW) from those who would turn on their heels (i.e. disobey the Messenger). Indeed it was great (heavy) except for those whom Allâh guided. And Allâh would never make your faith (prayers) to be lost (i.e. your prayers offered towards Jerusalem). Truly, Allâh is full of kindness, the Most Merciful towards mankind. (143) 

{Al-Baqara 2:143}

Then, We sent after them, Our Messengers, and We sent ‘ s  (Jesus) son of Maryam (Mary), and gave him the Injeel (Gospel). And We ordained in the hearts of those who followed him, compassion and mercy. But the monasticism which they invented for themselves, We did not prescribe for them, but (they sought it) only to please Allâh therewith, but they did not observe it with the right observance. So We gave those among them who believed, their (due) reward, but many of them are Fâsiqûn (rebellious, disobedient to Allâh). (27) 

{Al-Hadid 57:27}

* 11. Islam is a Complete package.

Allaah said:

This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm as your religion (3)

{Al Maida 5:3}

* 12. Muslims have a keen sense of Morality.

5 Categories of human action.

1, Fardh. (Obligitory)

2, Sunnah. (Recommended action)

3, Halal. (Do it or not-no sin either way)

4, Makhruh. (Disliked)

5, Haram (Sin)

Islam is the only religion which categorises human actions.

* 13. Islam provides security.

And there is (a saving of) life for you in Al-Qisâs (the Law of Equality in punishment), O men of understanding, that you may become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious – see V.2:2). (179) 

{Al-Baqara 2:179}

Because of that We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder, or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind. And indeed, there came to them Our Messengers with clear proofs, evidences, and signs, even then after that many of them continued to exceed the limits (e.g. by doing oppression unjustly and exceeding beyond the limits set by Allâh by committing the major sins) in the land! (32) 

{Al-Maeda 5:32}

* 14. Islam was well documented

We know about our prophet Muhammad salah Allaahu alahy wasalam.

Ibn Abaas said : the muslims have something that nobody before had ::: Isnaad : An unbroken chain of narrators back to the Rasool salah Allaahu alahy wasalam.

* 15. Islam has pious role models.

The Prophet Muhammad salah Allaahu alahye wasalam was the best of Mankind. His Sahaba RadiAllaahu anhum were the best of people.

* 16. Jihad.

The Rasool Salah Allaahu alayhe wasalam said.. If you are 12 thousand strong. No army will defeat you. 

[Riyadh us Saliheen]

Ibn Abbas (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger said, “The best number of sahabah is four, the best number of men in expedition is four hundred, the best number of men in armies is four thousand, and twelve thousand will not be defeated because of poor numbers.” 

[Tirmidhi 1561, Ahmed 2682, Abu Dawud 2611]

Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh’s Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know. (216) 

{Al-Baqarah 2:216}

* 17. People are fed up with other religions!

There is no morality in other religions.

* 18. Islam is the most hygenic.

The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Ten things are part of the fitrah: Cutting the Moustache, Letting the Beard grow, Using Siwaak (tooth-stick), Snuffing up water into the nose, Cutting the Nails, Washing the finger-joints, Plucking the Armpit Hairs, Shaving the Pubes and washing the private parts after relieving oneself.” Zakariya said: Mus’ab said: I have forgotten the tenth but I think it was rinsing the mouth.

[Narrated by Muslim, 261] [Al-Bukhari (6297) and Muslim (496)]
