Islam teaches that God is the Most Justice

Islam A Comprehensive Way Of Life

Islam is the religion of over one billion people in the world. It is the religion and complete way of life. Islam gives us key principles of how to live life according to Almighty Allah’s wish.  Allah is the creator of this world and He set some rules for us whom we have to follow for living our lives peacefully and happily. Muslims should live their lives according to the Islamic way of life. Family life is the basis of Islamic society. Allah says:

يَا أَيُّهَا النَّاسُ اتَّقُوا رَبَّكُمُ الَّذِي خَلَقَكُم مِّن نَّفْسٍ وَاحِدَةٍ وَخَلَقَ مِنْهَا زَوْجَهَا وَبَثَّ مِنْهُمَا رِجَالًا كَثِيرًا وَنِسَاءً وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ الَّذِي تَسَاءَلُونَ بِهِ وَالْأَرْحَامَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ كَانَ عَلَيْكُمْ رَقِيبًا

“O mankind! Consciously revere your Lord the One Who created you from a soul single and created from it its mate and dispersed from both of them many men and women. And consciously revere Allah (through) Whom you ask [with it] and the wombs. Indeed, Allah is over you Ever-Watchful.” (Surah an-Nisa 4:1)

The essence of Islam is the very essence of humanity. Islam is a complete and comprehensive way of life leading to a balanced way of living. Islamic principles and teachings can provide realistic, fair and objective solutions to the prevention of individual, family, social and international problems that are threatening the existence of human communities throughout the world. Allah says:

وَلَا تَمُدَّنَّ عَيْنَيْكَ إِلَىٰ مَا مَتَّعْنَا بِهِ أَزْوَاجًا مِّنْهُمْ زَهْرَةَ الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا لِنَفْتِنَهُمْ فِيهِ وَرِزْقُ رَبِّكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَبْقَىٰ

“And (do) not extend your eyes towards what We have given for enjoyment [with it], pairs of them (the) splendour (of) the life (of) the world, that We may test them in it. And (the) provision (of) your Lord (is) better and more lasting.” (Surah Ta-Ha 20:131)

Islam is the way of life that every one of us should implement in our lives and can live a peaceful and happy life according to the key principles of Islam. The more grateful we are to have the things we do, the more Allah will shower you with His bounties. Appreciation of what Allah has blessed you with is vital.

Islam encourages its followers to live this worldly life in the best manner and is against abstinence. Success is fulfilled when you are dutiful towards your Lord (Allah), and you should remember that there are acts of worship through the day that is not accepted by Allah at night, and there are acts of worship at night that are not accepted by Allah through the day. We should have an altruistic nature always ready to share our warmth and support with others. Allah says:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اصْبِرُوا وَصَابِرُوا وَرَابِطُوا وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ لَعَلَّكُمْ تُفْلِحُونَ

“You who believe, be steadfast, more steadfast than others; be ready; always be mindful of God so that you may prosper.” (Surah Al-Imran 3:200)

One of the major problems of the present world is that people are striving to make their life easier at the cost of making it difficult for others. If you were to put your trust in Allah the way that Allah deserves, then you would be provided for as the birds are; they leave in search of food at the beginning of the day hungry, and they return at the end of the day fully. Allah says:

مَنْ عَمِلَ صَالِحًا مِّن ذَكَرٍ أَوْ أُنثَىٰ وَهُوَ مُؤْمِنٌ فَلَنُحْيِيَنَّهُ حَيَاةً طَيِّبَةً وَلَنَجْزِيَنَّهُمْ أَجْرَهُم بِأَحْسَنِ مَا كَانُوا يَعْمَلُونَ

“Whoever does righteous deeds whether male or female while he (is) a believer, then surely We will give him l a life good, and We will pay them their reward to (the) best of what they used (to) do.” (Surah An-Nahl 16:97)

Islam integrates all domains of human life, just like the different systems in the human body integrate to provide a complete human being. If one system does not work properly, it has got to affect the whole body. Islam proposes systems of laws that integrate all parts of human society to bring happiness and peace to all its members. Allah says:

الَّذِي خَلَقَ الْمَوْتَ وَالْحَيَاةَ لِيَبْلُوَكُمْ أَيُّكُمْ أَحْسَنُ عَمَلًا وَهُوَ الْعَزِيزُ الْغَفُورُ 

“He who created death and life to test you as to which of you is best in deed-and He is the Almighty, the Oft-Forgiving.” (Surah Al-Mulk 67:2)

There is no other way or system that urges the active worship of Allah in its general and most comprehensive sense other than Islam. Its teachings are kept intact and authentic. It is the only way to happiness, dignity, and universal peace

The reality of life according to the Quran, Allah Almighty says:

  • “And consult them in the matter.” (Quran, 3:159)
  • “And indeed, for Us (is) the Hereafter and the first (life).” (Quran 92:13)
  • “And [remember] when your Lord proclaimed, ‘If you are grateful, I will surely increase you [in favour]; but if you deny, indeed, My punishment is severe.” (Surah Ibrahim, verse 7)
  • “Then do they not reflect upon the Quran? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.” (Quran 4:82)
  • “O you who have believed, why do you say what you do not do? Great is hatred in the sight of Allah that you say what you do not do.” (Qur’an 61:2-3)
  • “And whoever fears Allah – He will make for him a way out. And will provide for him from where he does not expect.” (Surah At-Talaq, verses 2-3)
  • “But We shall be sure to guide to Our ways those who strive hard for Our cause: Allah is with those who do good.”(Quran, 29:69)

Islam is divine guidance wherein humans of all nations, colours and tongues feel linked to a Supreme Power and Justice. Do not look towards celebrities, rich or affluent people above you in worldly matters. The lives of such individuals are not ‘ideal’ in the eyes of Allah. Allah says:

وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكًا وَنَحْشُرُهُ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ أَعْمَىٰ

“And whoever turns away from My remembrance, then indeed, for him (is) a life straitened and We will gather him (on the) Day (of) the Resurrection blind.” (Surah Ta-Ha 20:124)

Thus, when doing good with others Muslims must remember that the reward of it comes from Allah Almighty and that reward is the only success that a person should desire. Nothing can make us happier than seeking the pleasure of Allah. Whether we are a university, home or on holiday never forget to seek the countenance of Allah. Allah says:

وَإِنْ أَرَدتُّمُ اسْتِبْدَالَ زَوْجٍ مَّكَانَ زَوْجٍ وَآتَيْتُمْ إِحْدَاهُنَّ قِنطَارًا فَلَا تَأْخُذُوا مِنْهُ شَيْئًا أَتَأْخُذُونَهُ بُهْتَانًا وَإِثْمًا مُّبِينًا

“And if you intend replacing a wife (in) place (of) a wife and you have given one of the heaps (of gold) then (do) not take away from it anything. Would you take it (by) slander and a sin open?” (Surah An-Nisa` 4:20)

Allah created man to serve Him, meaning that men should believe in the One Lord and do well. This is the main objective of human life. Quran contains all the guidance related to the life of this world and the Hereafter too. If we want to know about the existence of this world and humankind then we have to understand through the Quran because all the answers are present in the Quran. We should fulfil this purpose of our life by following Allah’s commands given in the Quran.
