Things You Should Know About Islam

The message in this song, MashaAllah-so nice..

For those who curious about Islam listen here-

Islam is all about peace

Terrorism it doesn’t teach

It’s all about love, family and charity…

Do you know-even the word Islam itself is derived from Arabic word salama which mean peace..hmm

And do you know our beloved Prophet Muhammad s.a.w was sent by Allah swt to perfect the akhlak’ , the behavior and the mindset of Arab people at that time..

Our prophet s.a.w has taught Islam- the beautiful way of life

Which the teachings are about how to worship the only god, Allah swt

To do good to your parents, love and respect them

Don’t believe me? Check this out

Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to your parent. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in honour (Al-Isra’:23)

Besides that, Allah also said

And, out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say:

“My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.” (Al-Isra’:24)

And Prophet s.a.w also has emphasized it to us so many times! And to give you a few..

· Yazid b. Abu Habib reported that Na'im, the freed slave of Umm Salama, reported to him that 'Abdullah b. 'Amr b. 'As said: There came to Allah's Apostle (may peace be upon him) a person and said: I owe allegiance to you for migration and Jihad seeking reward only from Allah. He (the Holy Prophet) said: Is one from amongst your parents living? He said: Yes, of course, both are living. He further asked: Do you want to seek reward from Allah? He said: Yes. Thereupon Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: Go back to your parents and accord them with kindly treatment. ( HR Muslim)

· Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Amr: It is narrated on the authority of 'Abdur-Rahman b. Abu Bakra that his father said: We were in the company of the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) that he observed: Should I not inform you about the most grievous of the grave sins? (The Holy Prophet) repeated it three times, and then said: Associating anyone with Allah, disobedience to parents , false testimony or false utterance. The Holy Prophet was reclining, then he sat up, and he repeated it so many times that we wished that he should become silent. (HR Muslim)

And also, when the song mentioned about the charity, the singer got the point.. Wanna proof?

· Narrated Abu Huraira:

The Prophet (p.b.u.h) said, "Seven people will be shaded by Allah under His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His. They are:

a just ruler;

a young man who has been brought up in the worship of Allah, (i.e. worship Allah (Alone) sincerely from his childhood),

a man whose heart is attached to the mosque (who offers the five compulsory congregational prayers in the mosque);

two persons who love each other only for Allah's sake and they meet and part in Allah's cause only;

a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for an illegal sexual intercourse with her and says: I am afraid of Allah;

a person who practices charity so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given (i.e. nobody knows how much he has given in charity).

a person who remembers Allah in seclusion and his eyes get flooded with tears."

(HR Bukhari)

· Narrated 'Aisha:

Some of the wives of the Prophet asked him, "Who amongst us will be the first to follow you (i.e. die after you)?" He said, "Whoever has the longest hand." So they started measuring their hands with a stick and Sauda's hand turned out to be the longest. (When Zainab bint Jahsh died first of all in the caliphate of 'Umar), we came to know that the long hand was a symbol of practicing charity, so she was the first to follow the Prophet and she used to love to practice charity. (Sauda died later in the caliphate of Muawiya). (HR Bukhari)

Plus! Allah also has ordered us-Muslims to pay zakat or the obligatory charity tax. Some of our properties will be given to the needy for the sake of Allah, to help those in difficulty-

And be steadfast in prayer and regular in charity..(Al-Baqarah:110)

By no means shall you attain righteousness unless you give ( freely)of that which you love; and whatever you give, of a truth Allah knows it well (Al-Baqarah:92)

So, with all of these, do you still think that Muslims are terrorist? Ok.. maybe there’s some people will ask this question;

How about the things that I’ve seen in TV? Muslims bombing hotels, planes and etc..

Let me explain to you here..

People of the world.....
Do you know the truth about..... Islam?
Or do you think it's about
Bombing planes and killing innocent people.....?
Forget about the lies.....
I' am here to tell you how it really is.....
You deserve to know the truth
About this beautiful way of life.....

Yes! In Islam, Allah swt and Prophet s.a.w did ask Muslims to commence a war BUT with certain conditions. When having a war, it is PROHIBITED for the Muslims to kill women and children;

  • Yahya related to me from Malik from Ibn Shihab that a son of Kab ibn Malik (Malik believed that ibn Shihab said it was Abd ar-Rahman ibn Kab) said, "The Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, forbade those who fought ibn Abi Huqayq (a unfaithful jew from Madina) to kill women and children. He said that one of the men fighting had said, 'The wife of ibn Abi Huqayq began screaming and I repeatedly raised my sword against her. Then I would remember the prohibition of the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, so I would stop. Had it not been for that, we would have been rid of her.’ " (HR Malik)
  • Yahya related to me from Malik from Nafi from Ibn Umar that the Messenger of Allah, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, saw the corpse of a woman who had been slain in one of the raids, and he disapproved of it and forbade the killing of women and children. (HR Malik)

Islam also taught the Muslims to not to kill the innocent people, instead treat them kindly eventhough there are not Muslims as long as they do not bring harm to us;

Allah forbids you not, with regard to those who fight you not for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing kindly and justly with them: for Allah loves those who are just (Al-Mumtahanah:8)

Now, can you see! How Islam promoting the peace, not terrorism! And how Islam teaching the Muslims to do good to others, not oppressing them like some other racers did! Yup, I do understand, maybe some people might get confused. Why the Muslims commit the things that are not reflected them as a Good Muslim. This is because

Too many people wear a title of a Muslim
But they don't practice Islam..

Yeah, listen here- Islam is a perfect religion! But the Muslims, the people (including me) are not..And my advice-

If you want to study Islam, study the religion itself, not the PEOPLE! If you want to see the examples of a REAL MUSLIMS, look at the Prophet s.a.w and also his companions.. I’m not saying all the Muslims nowadays are bad,nop! That’s not my point. You still can see there’s some people who still hold to Al-Qur’an and Sunna.. And this people are those you can ask or refer if you wanna know the REAL TEACHINGS of Islam..Believe me, once you know the truth about Islam, you will see the reasons why we called ISLAM-A BEAUTIFUL WAY OF LIFE
