فَمَن يُرِدِ اللّهُ أَن يَهْدِيَهُ يَشْرَحْ صَدْرَهُ لِلإِسْلاَمِ

And whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He opens his breast to Islam. Quran 6.125

As we mentioned earlier, all Prophets brought same message of submission and obedience to Allah and rejection of anyone who rebel against Allah. All the Prophets submitted to Allah and accepted Islam as their Deen.

Islam is a complete way of life. It is based on the guidance provided by Allah (swt), who is the Creator of the Universe. It covers all aspects of life, it tells us Purpose of our creation, our place among other creatures, our Final Destiny. It shows us way to conduct ourselves publicly and privately, It shows us way to deal with social, political, moral and spiritual affairs, It teaches us economics and transactions, It teaches us governance and administration.

The word “Ibadah” (usually translated as worship) means “total obedience and submission to Allah’s commands”. Thus, everything we do is for the sake of Allah and to earn His pleasure by fulfilling His commands.

Allah (swt) is the creator of Universe and all that exists.

Allah (swt) described Himself with beautiful Names and Attributes. These attributes are unique to Him. And no one is similar to Him in anyways. He (swt) is not like anything that the mind can imagine. Allah (swt) said: لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِ شَيْءٌ “There is nothing like Him”. This is usually referred to as توحيدالآسمأوالصفات (Tawheed-al-Asma-wa-Sifaat)

Allah (swt) wants Mominoon (believers) to purify themselves according to his wish and guidance. He swt wants us to completely submit to his ahkhams (orders) and attain complete iman and righteousness. 

Al-Qadar is “the divine will and decree of Allah (swt)”, where He knew, wrote, willed and created all things in due proportion and according to a precise measure. Allah (swt) knew about everything before bringing them to existence and in accordance with proportions and measures which Allah had written in a Book called al-Lawh al-Mahfooz (the Preserved Tablet). Al-Qadaa’ is the perfectly precise execution and accomplishment of all things in accordance with Allah’s Qadar.
