Islamic Beliefs and concepts
Islam is the fastest growing religion on earth and now nearly 2 Billion humans all over the world called Muslims, that is almost a third!
Islam is based on the submission of human will to one god who is known as 'Allah' or 'the only one', 'the Superior' and it is believed to be the only creator of this universe with all the existence under his own control.
Islam was the religion given to Adam, the first man on earth who was created by God. All the prophets and messengers of God "Allah" to humankind on earth were Muslims, including Adam, Abraham, Moses, Aaron, Jacob, Jesus and Mohammad and they have the same basic Message to Mankind as Christianity:
"La Ilaha Illa Allah"
Which translates as: No God worth of worshiping except Allah and anything else is his servant and creation.
Although those prophets came with different books, practices and methods of worshipping, Prophet Mohammad (peace and blessings be upon him and all other prophets) was the last Messenger of Allah on earth before the Day of Judgement.
The basic message of Islam is the absolute unity of Allah 'God' who is not dependent on anything or anyone else. Muslims believe that Jesus was Allah's Prophet and Messenger and his servant just like all other prophets, including Mohammad and Moses.
Muslims also believe that God and his creations are completely different entities, Allah is not his creation nor he is a part of it, rather that his essence and his great knowledge are everywhere on his creation.
Islam calls the human away from the worshipping of the creation of Allah and invites him to the worshipping of the creator - Allah himself. It's believed the greatest sin of humanity is the worshipping of the creation.
Among the basics of Islamic Religion, the most important part is the belief in one God 'Allah' and that he is the only Creator, Ruler, Lord, Administrator and Master of all that exists, and this Universe exists and functions because the will of Allah alone.
Allah responds to man's prayer and he is the only one who has the power to accept or reject it. He is the Master of man's destiny, no one ever else can interfere with the fate of others or even with his own fate!
All the human's hopes and fears should be only directed to Allah. He is the object of fear & source of favour.
