What is Islam?
Islam is divine guidance based upon the belief of the oneness of Allah and in Muhammad (PBUH) as his final messengar.
Who is Allah?
In Islam Muslims believe Allah is the one true God who created the heavens and the Earth. He has no partners and no equals.
'Say: He is Allah, the One; Allah the Eternal; Absolute; he begets not, nor is he begotten; and there is none like unto him'. (Quran 114:1-4)
Who is Muhammad (PBUH)?
In Islam, Muslims believe that Muhammad (PBUH) is the last prophet Allah sent down to humanity. Allah revealed the Qur'an to the prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
'Verily, we have sent thee in truth as a bearer of glad tidings and a warner.' (Qur'an 2:119)
'Mohammad is not the father of any of your men,but (he is) the messengar of Allah and the seal of the prophets.' Qur'an (33:40)
What is the Qur'an?
In Islam the holy book is called the Qur'an. It is the last and final revelation from Allah which was given to Muhammad (PBUH) so he could reveal it to mankind.
'But those who believe and work deeds of righteousness, and believe in the revelation sent down to Muhammad-for it is the truth from their lord,- he will remove from their ills and improve their condition.' (Qur'an 47:2)
'It is he who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the book confirmingwhat went before it; and he sent down the Torah (of Moses) and the Bible (of Jesus), before this as a guide to mankind.' (Qur'an 3:3-4)
