Islam means peace and prosperity. Islam give us the lesson of brotherhood.The followers of Islam will be succeeded in this world and in Hare after as well.Islam is the oldest religion so Islam is not a new religion.
Islam is a complete code of life. If we follow Islam we will be successful and we can come over all the difficulties.what we are facing now a days. Islam teaches us how to be a true Muslim so we can learn Islam from Holy Quran.
As we are in the Ummah of Hazrat Muhammad(SAW), the Holy prophet(SAW) taught us the way of life. The Lord of the world revealed the Holy Quran to Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) so that people may understand about Islam.
The followers of Islam are called Muslims so we should not be binomial, we will have to prove our true religion and we will have to sacrifice our lives for Islam and we will never let anybody to harm our Holy religion.
There are five pillars of Islam so these are; Kalima Taibba, Salaah (Namaz/ Prayer),Zakat, observing Fast and Hajj.These are the five pillars of Islam, if anybody refuse any one of them he will be called Infidel (According to Islamic scholars) so if someone doesn’t perform these orders so he is committing major sins.
Zakat and Hajj depend upon assets if somebody has capability so he must be in position to take care Zakat and perform hajj.
Islam doesn’t contain only worships. Islam shows us how will be our social life, what will be our character how we will treat our waives so all such things are in the circle of Islam. The Holy prophet Hazrat Muhammad(SAW) has said in his last sermon,
“O People, lend me an attentive ear, listen to what I am saying to you very carefully and take these words to those who could not be present here today.
“O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust.
Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and HE will indeed reckon your deeds. ALLAH (SWT) has forbidden you to take usury (interest).
therefore, all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer any inequity. ALLAH (SWT) has judged that there shall be no interest.
“Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray(destroy) in big things, so beware of following him in small things.
“O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard you your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your waives only under ALLAH (SWT) trust and with his permission.
If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right t be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and committed helpers. See more about Women Rights In Islam
And it is your right that they do not make friends with any of whom you do not approve, as well as never to be unchaste “O People Listen to me an earnest, worship ALLAH (SWT),say your five daily prayers(SALAH) ,fast during the month of Ramadan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to.
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve (Bibi Hawa A.S), an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor an Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a does a black have any superiority over a white except by piety and good actions. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every other Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood.
Nothing shall be legitimate to a Muslim which belong to a fellow Muslim unless it was given freely and willingly .Do not, therefore, do injustice to yourselves.
“Remember, one day you will appear before ALLAH (SWT) and answer your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.
“O People no apostle or prophet shall come after me or no new religion should be born”.
So that was the last sermon which is complete code of life and simply we can say that following these words of the Holy prophet(SWT) is Islam.
At last I would like to say that “O my LORD succeed us in this world and in Hereafter as well and give us capability to spread Islam”.
