It's not right that God would reveal on his Messengers or Prophets different Religions that contradict each other in essentials. A messenger is a prophet who comes with abrogating some of the laws brought by the previous messenger or receives a new set of laws. But the religion is one, believing in the oneness of Allâh.
انت الحبيب وانت نور بصيرتي ... وسراج عمري في القديم وفي غدي You are the beloved and the light of my inner sense, My lifetime’s lantern, for my past and future more intense
The heart is the leader of the organs ; if the heart is devoted to piety then the rest of the organs will follow its lead, and consequently, the person will become pious ; likewise, if the heart is corrupted, the rest of the organs will follow in corruption, and consequently, the person will become a sinner. So fear Allâh and work for the Day of Judgement, the day which Allâh described in the Qur’ân as being: « The day where assets and offspring serve no benefit, only the one who has come with a sound heart will profit. »
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.
The SaHabah (Prophet MuHammad's companions) loved dearly and respected Ahlul-Bayt (Family of the Prophet). History is clear on the fact that Imam Aliy himself gave elegance to these honorable Khulafas: Abu Bakr, Omar and Othman and that he was the fourth Khalifah. He respected them highly and they respected him highly for his vast knowledge and relation to the Prophet.
It is invalid to divide the inheritance of a deceased person or to sell the inheritance until the debts and the zakât which was obligatory on him have been fulfilled. Something may be sold to pay off a debt or fulfill the will. The expenses of performing Hajj and `Umrah on behalf of the deceased must be taken out if the Hajj and `Umrah were obligatory on him and he did not perform them. The inheritance is like a collateral held for that purpose.
There are five prayers which must be performed by the Muslims and are called obligatory prayers. It is a great sin to neglect performing any of these obligatory prayers.
What is repentance (Tawbah)? Repentance is regretting, refraining and intending not to commit the sin after that. If the sin was leaving out an obligation one makes it up and if it involved neglecting a right to a human, one satisfies it or seeks the person’s pardon.
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). In addition, the Muslim is obligated to recite the Two Testifications (Shahadahs) in every prayer for validity of that prayer. The Two Testifications are: I testify that no one is God except Allâh and I testify that MuHammad is the Messenger of Allâh.
Allâ ta`âlâ said in the Qur'ân: ﴿ كُنتُمْ خَيْرَ أُمَّةٍ أُخْرِجَتْ لِلنَّاسِ تَأْمُرُونَ بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَتَنْهَوْنَ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَتُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللّهِ ﴾ which means: « You are the best of the nations to come forth to the people, bidding the lawful and forbidding the unlawful. » [Surat Al `Imran, Ayah 110] Prophet MuHammad Sallallahu Alayhi Wa Sallam said: « مَن رَّأَى مِنْكُم مُّنكَراً فَلْيُغَيِّرْهُ بِيَدِهِ فإن لم يستطع فبلسانه فإن لم يستطع فبقلبه وذلك أضعف الإيمان » which means: « The one of you who sees an evil that is practiced, he must change it by his hand, if he is incapable, with his tongue and if he is incapable, he must hate that by his heart, and this being the minimum that faith requires. » [Related by Muslim]
One becomes a Muslim by believing in the Two Testifications of Faith and uttering them with the intention of leaving out blasphemy. The Two Testifications of Faith are: I testify that no one is God except God and I testify that MuHammad is the prophet of God.
The Qur'ân is not man-made. It pertains the orders of Allâh. The Qur'ân we read now, is in a language that we understand. But the speech of Allâh is neither a letter, language, or sound. But what we read in the holy books, are expressions of the eternal speech of Allâh. Because Allâh does not resemble the creations in any way.
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.
Allâh exists without a place. He created the universe and willed for the existence of time. He is not bound by time or designated with place. The development is a sign of needing others, and the one who needs others is not God. There is absolutely nothing like Allâh whatsoever, and He has the attributes of Hearing and Seeing.
There are five prayers which must be performed by the Muslims and are called obligatory prayers. They are Dhuhr (Noon) prayer, `Asr (afternoon) prayer, Maghrib (sunset) prayer, `Ishaa’ (Nightfall) prayer and Fajr (Dawn) prayer. It is a great sin to neglect performing any of these obligatory prayers. Among the merits of performing the obligatory prayers is that one’s small sins, which may be committed between prayers, are forgiven.
The tongue is one of many endowments Allâh bestowed upon His slaves. Although the tongue is a tiny organ, the person who uses it to comply with the orders of Allâh, the teachings of the Qur’ân, and the teachings of the Prophet may earn blessings in this world and the in Hereafter. However, the one who uses his tongue in disobedience to Allâh would not be displaying thankfulness to Allâh and would be heading towards his own destruction. Certainly, being thankful to Allâh means not to use the endowments bestowed by Allâh in what is forbidden. One needs to know the sins of the tongue could be small or enormous.
Allâh created the universe, He exists before the space and the time. God exists without place and does not depend on time. We do not say "where" or "when" or "how" about Allâh.
This universe is created, it is born, it needs who created it and who makes it change. This world with all the creations it contains must have a creator who is alive, attributed to the will, knowledge and power ; and it is Allah ta`ālâ. Allah is the creator of all things existing. The healthy mind does not accept the existence of an action without someone executing it.
Al-HâfiDh Ibnou Hajar said in his book FatHou lBârî: Al-Bayhaqiyy reported in al-'Asmâ 'wa Si-Sifât with a Haçan transmission chain according to Ibnu `Abbas that the disbelievers came to the prophet and he Say, tell us your Lord, whom you worship. Allâh revealed qul houwa lLâhou AHad until the end of the sūurat. The prophet said, "These are the attributes of my Lord` zza wa jall."
Allâh is the One Who is the Only God. He is the One Who is attributed with an eternal and everlasting Life (which is without soul, body, blood, bones or need for food). He is the One Who manages the world and does not need any one and every one needs Him. He is not seized with somnolence or sleep. To Him belongs what is in the heavens and Earth. No one will intercede, on the Day of Judgment, except with His permission.
