Islam is a complete code of life.It has been called a “Din” which means a system of life.It is far superior to any other religion of the world.Its teachings are highly appreciable and beneficial for humanity.It covers all the aspects of human life and aims at its betterment.It promises a good life in this world and the hereafter.
It covers all the aspects of life for all the humanity.It makes clear that the basis of otherwordly life is our deeds and actions in this world.Islam means obedience or submission to the will of God.The will of God is expressed clearly in the religious law.
Islamic culture does not mean the culture attained at any given moment by people who profess the riligion of islam, but the kind of culture prescribed by a religion of which human progress in the difinite and avowed din.Islam forsees and works for the radiant future of human race;and though every Muslim holds his own life cheap in the service of ALLAH which is the service of humanity,he would never dream of sacrificing any human life however insignificant seeming,to the work of human hands.Islam is a religion which specifically aims at human progress and shows the proper way of it in the number of commands and prohibitions covering every avocation of man’s life,his social life and politics as well as every prompting of his mind and spirit.These commands and prohibitions have been codified into a complete social and political system.
Islam covers all the important aspects of our private life.It guides us about the types of food,dress,culture,way of living,standard of living,names,our political life,our economical life,our social life,our festivals and our rites.It is quite clear about our public life.
Other religions promise success in another life to those who qualify themselves for it by provision and simplicity on the earth.Islam promises success and fruition in this life-just as much as in the other-toall men,if they will but obey certain laws and plain rules of conduct.The division between this world and the other vanishes for the true Muslim,since ALLAH is the lord of the Heavens and the earth,the sovereign of this world just as much as of the others.
Allah Almighty has sent Islam as final code of good conduct for humanity. It is a complete guidance for its followes.It is the best political and economic system in the world.
Some people wrongly think that Islam is a set of difficult religious practices.Islam lays stress on certain practices,but these practices aim at physical and mental purification.
The success in this world promised by Islam is not the success of one human being at the expense of others,but the success of mankind as a whole.
Islam is nothing if no practical.The Quran informs the Muslims that true religion is practical,not theoretical or formal.Islam means man’s surrender to the Lords will,and so obedience to His law,which is a law of effort,not of idleness.
Islam is a religion of true peace,justice and equality.It gives us clear directions in regard to respect for each other’s rights in society.It is a flexible religion.It permits us to make use of our reason or mind to suggest solutions to new kinds of social problems.
Islam is a rational religion.Again and again, The Holy Quran denounces irrational religion as religion evidently falls.All historical experience goes to prove that a large measure of free thought is absolutely necesary to human progress,and at the same time that nations which lose faithin God deteriorate.Islam has proved that a large measure of free thought and living faith in God are perfectly compatible.
Ther is no priest hood in Islam.Islam emphasizes on seeking knowledge.Islam brought religious back into its proper sphere of action in daily life.The light of ALLAH,spoken in the Quran,is the light of everyday beautified and glorified by the knowledge of His immanence.
Islm offers a complete political and social system as an alternative to socialism,fascism,syndicalism and all other ‘isms’offered as alternatives,to a system which is manifestly threatend with extinction.The system of Islampromises peace and stability where now we see the strife of classes and of nations and nothing steadfast.
Most of the religions of the world teach their followers to move away from the society in order to lead a holy and pious life.Islam strictly condemns this act.Its teachings are so marvellous that the true Muslim society is free from all the social evils.
