The high status of knowledge has been clearly established in Islam through explicit texts in the Qur'an and the Hadith as well as in the writings of the scholars of Islam. Allâh said in Surat Al-Mujadalah, Ayah 11 which means: « Allâh raises the ranks of those among you who believe and those who were granted the knowledge. » Also, Allâh said in Surat Az-Zumar, Ayah 9 which means: « Those who know are not the same as those who do not know. » In the hadith related by Al-Bayhaqiyy, the Messenger of Allâh MuHammad Sallâ lLâhou `alayhi wa sallam said which means: « Seeking the knowledge of the Religion is obligatory on every Muslim. »
Knowledge is the gateway to success, as known by many. However, some people understand this statement differently. The Islamic definition and concept of knowledge, and how it is a gateway to success in this world and in the Hereafter, is an ambiguous matter to many people. Allâh said in Surat Az-Zumar, Ayah 9 which means: « Those who know are not the same as those who do not know. »
The beginning of the month of Ramadan, as well as the end of the month, is determined by sighting the crescent. If the crescent was not sighted, then the month would be completed by thirty days, as is the case with determining all the months of the lunar calendar. This is taken from the Hadîth of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلّم related by Al-Bukhâriyy and Muslim: « لا تَقَدَّمُوا رَمَضانَ بِيَومٍ أَوْ يَومَين صُوموا لرؤيتِه وأفطِرُوا لرُؤيتِه فإنْ غُمَّ علَيكم فأكْمِلوا عِدَّةَ شَعبانَ ثلاثينَ يوما », which means: « Do not fast one or two days before RamaDân. Start the month when you see the crescent, and end it when you see the crescent. If you are blocked from seeing it, then complete thirty days of Sha`bân. »
The month of Ramadan, which is the best of the year, has the best night of the year: Al-Qadr night. It's the best of the year, as the day of `Arafah is the best of the year. It is better than 1000 months, according to verse 3 of Sourat al-Qadr. The night of Al-Qadr - night of the Value - has a great merit and can be any night of Ramadan.
Allah created the angels of light. All of them are Muslims obedient slaves to God. They are impalpable creatures, endowed with souls honored according to the judgment of God. They are neither men nor women. They are slaves responsible for their actions, responsible for many tasks.
The Paradise is the abode of peace, enjoyment, and happiness. Allâh prepared it for the Muslims. And the Hellfire which is the everlasting place of torture. Allâh prepared it for the blasphemers who chose blasphemy and refused Islam.
Among what the Prophet conveyed and is obligatory to believe in are: the Day of Judgment, it begins when the people come out of their graves and lasts until the people of Paradise reside in Paradise and the people of Hell in Hell. And the Resurrection is when the graves open and the people come out of them for the judgment. And Assembly: the people will be gathered at a place to be questioned about their deeds.
The most eminent of the graces which will be given to people of the paradise when they will be for the paradise, they will see Allah ta`âlâ. They will see Him and there is no something that people of the paradise will more like than seeing Allâh. They will see Him without how, without place and without direction.
Many of the shaykhs of Ibn ^Abdul-Wahhab in al-Madinah used to say, "He will be misguided, and he will misguide those for whom Allah willed the misguidance." Things took place as per the speculation of the scholars. Ibn ^Abdul-Wahhab claimed his intention behind the madhhab he invented was "to purify the tawhid" and "repudiate the shirk." He also claimed people had been following the shirk for six-hundred years and he revived their Religion for them!!
Imam Al-Bayhaqiyy related the Prophet MuHammad (Sallallahu `alayhi Wa Sallam) said: « حتى متى ترعونَ عن ذكر الفاجِر اذكروهُ بما فيه حتى يحذرهُ الناس » which means: « Until when will you hold back from exposing the one who commits enormous sins? Mention about him that which is in him so the people will be cautioned against him. » And Prophet MuHammad said: « إذا رأيت أمتي تهاب أن تقول للظالم يا ظالم فقد تودّع منهم » which means: « If you see my nation fearful of telling he who is unjust, "You are unjust" then know the support of Allah is withdrawn from them » [Related by Al Hâkim in Al Mustadrak]
Reading of the Qur’ân, it is a rewardable deed with the right intention and with the proper articulation of the Arabic letters, even if it were upon the Muslim dead.
Abu Hurayra narrated that the Prophet said, « On the Day of Judgment Allâh will give the shade of the `Arsh (Throne), to seven, when there will be no shade but the shade of the `Arsh. These seven persons are; a just ruler, a youth who has been brought up in the worship of Allâh, a man whose heart is attached to the mosques, two persons who love each other only for Allâh's sake and they meet and depart in Allâh's cause only, a man who refuses the call of a charming woman of noble birth for unlawful intercourse with her and says: I am fearful of Allâh, a man who gives charitable gifts so secretly that his left hand does not know what his right hand has given, and a person who praises (remembers) Allâh in seclusion( privacy) and his eyes are then flooded with tears. »
In Islam, the accountable person (mukallaf) is the one who is pubescent, sane, and has received the message of Islam, which is: “No one is God except Allâh, and MuHammad is the Messenger of Allâh.”
Isrâ` and Mi`râj: this event is celebrated on the 27th of Rajab as per the Islamic calendar. It commemorates the miraculous night journey of Prophet MuHammad Sallallâhu `alayhi wa sallam from the city of Makkah to Jerusalem and then through the seven skies to paradise and beyond.
All holy books taught that Islam is the only true religion. That means all Prophets and Messengers were Muslims, that is, they believed in one God, and that this God is the only true God and he only deserves to be worshipped. The laws in the Quraan differed from previous laws of other Prophets. But the religion is one, ISLAM.
Professing the Two Shahadahs: In regards to the blasphemer who wants to embrace Islam, the belief is not accepted without one uttering the Two Testifications (Shahadahs).

The Two Testifications are: I testify that no one is God except Allâh and I testify that MuHammad is the Messenger of Allâh.
