Five Piller Of Islam
“Why Islam?” is a common question asked by Non-Muslims.First of all we should understand that Islam is not a different religion from Jews,Christians and other Abrahamic religions.Islam is the continuation of those religions as Allah SWT mentioned in Quran.
قُلْ يَا أَهْلَ الْكِتَابِ تَعَالَوْاْ إِلَى كَلَمَةٍ سَوَاء بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَكُمْ أَلاَّ نَعْبُدَ إِلاَّ اللَّهَ وَلاَ نُشْرِكَ بِهِ شَيْئًا وَلاَ يَتَّخِذَ بَعْضُنَا بَعْضاً أَرْبَابًا مِّن دُونِ اللَّهِ فَإِن تَوَلَّوْاْ فَقُولُواْ اشْهَدُواْ بِأَنَّا مُسْلِمُونَ
Say, “O People of the Scripture, come to a word that is equitable between us and you – that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah.”1 But if they turn away, then say, “Bear witness that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].” [Surah Al Imran ayat 64]
Islam is not only a religion but a complete code of life.It is the climax of humanity as mentioned in Quran:
Therefore We ordained for the Children of Israel53 that he who slays a soul unless it be (in punishment) for murder or for spreading mischief on earth shall be as if he had slain all mankind; and he who saves a life shall be as if he had given life to all mankind.54 And indeed again and again did Our Messengers come to them with clear directives; yet many of them continued to commit excesses on earth. [Surah Al Maidah ayat 32]
There is no religion on the face of earth other than Islam which says murder of a single innocent is like murder of entire humanity.Some people try to portrait Islam as a religion of terrorism but infect Islam is the religion of peace.
Islam teaches us to fear Allah even when you have no fear of anyone else or even when you are alone. You should know that you’ll be accountable for whatever you do before your creator on the day of judgment.So Islam is this much peaceful that even there is no fear of police or accountability in this world even than don’t harm people, don’t do evil things.
