Most growing religion in world

Before the advent of Islam, darkness of Kuffar prevailed everywhere. Ignorance wrapped everyone’s heart. There were rights to be considered for poor, slaves, women and the suppressed.

Morality was getting terminated and the rights were denied. Oblivious clouds of darkness were ending the sympathy and respect. Everyone was the enemy of someone else.

Advent of Islam:

Allah Almighty, the creator of all universes, sent many messengers who preached the message of Allah and invited people to enter into the circle of a sacred religion Islam.

Islam is a sanctified religion which enlightens the hearts of non-Muslims with the brilliance of its teachings.

“Islam appears to me like a perfect work of architecture. All its parts are harmoniously conceived to complement and support each other; nothing is superfluous and nothing lacking; and the result is a structure of absolute balance and solid composure.”

Muhammad Asad

Many of them accepted the religion Islam and the messengers of Allah while others denied.

Allah showed many miracles to them as He is the creator, the knowing, the listener and the forgiver.

At the end of this messenger’s procession, Allah Almighty sent his last messenger, Hazrat Muhammad S.W, considered last prophet of Allah.

He S.W preached all attributes of Islam to the people betrayed.

Attributes of Religion Islam:

“As there is no God but Allah and Prophet Muhammad is the last Prophet of God” is considered as the central attribute of Islam religion.

Islam is the religion of equity, justice and morality.

Islam is the light of Noor which sparks our hearts. Islam is the religion which conveys the true message of Allah Almighty.

Islam is full of knowledge and wisdom. It secures Muslims with barriers of Halal and Haram.

Islam is a broad religion which teaches the lesson of forgiveness. Islam is only religion which ensures the rights of women, poor and oppressed ones.

Islam demolished the pillars of ignorance. When people did not know how to live life, how to behave others and how to lift morality up.

Teachings of Islam:

Islam religion teaches the lessons of equity.

In the era of ignorance, the rights of poor and the weaker were not to be considered.

Islam demonstrated clearly that every human is created free to pay his obligations. Human must not be shackled into the chains of slavery. So that everyone recognized his value.

Islam taught to treat poor, slaves and women with due respect and politeness.

Islam gave women level of respect and secrecy.

“Declare your jihad on thirteen enemies you cannot see -egoism, arrogance, conceit, selfishness, greed, lust, intolerance, anger, lying, cheating, gossiping and slandering. If you can master and destroy them, then you will be read to fight the enemy you can see.”

Al-Ghazzali

Islam borders the rights for every single person. It taught that right of a person cannot be denied.

Islam taught the lesson of equity. Everyone is equal before God. No one is superior to other unless he is pious. Islam taught to worship one God. As there is no God but Allah.

Islam and the west:

Islam and the culture of west are totally different.

Islam gives respect to others as there are no barriers of superiority and inferiority in Islam. But the culture of west is totally based on judgment of differences.

West does not ensure the rights of minority.  Islam has sympathy and moral values for the minorities.

Culture of Islam and West:

Islam provides the basic rights to all human while west do not ensure the rights of others.

Culture of west is based upon the differences of men and women, poor and rich, stronger and the oppressed and superiority and inferiority.

Islam is the religion of respect and forgiveness.

Western culture does not have one belief. They tend into different cultures and practices. They have their own laws and codes.

“As a society of unbelief, Western culture is devoid of a sense of journey, of adventure, because it lacks belief in much more than the cultivation of an ever-shrinking horizon of self-preservation and and self-expression.”

Stanley Hauerwas

Morality is progressed in the religion Islam.

Islam and the Modern World:

Modern world has changed its code of livings. It is much far from the teachings of Islam. It is based on the modern codes of life and adventures.

Teachings of Islam are forgotten somewhere in this modern era of life.

In modern world, western culture is progressing.

For balancing life, teachings of Islam cannot be ignored.
