Qur'aan Chapter.57             Verse 26


Then We caused Our messengers to follow in their footsteps; and We caused Jesus, son of Mary, to follow, and gave him the Gospel, and placed compassion and mercy in the hearts of those who followed him. But monasticism they invented - We ordained it not for them - only seeking Allah's pleasure, and they observed it not with right observance.      


Chapter: 2 Al-Baqarah

(The Cow)     Verse: 136 - 139


Say (O Muslims): We believe in Allah and that which is revealed unto us and that which was revealed unto Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the tribes, and that which Moses and Jesus received, and that which the prophets received from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and unto Him we have surrendered. (136) And if they believe in the like of that which ye believe, then are they rightly guided. But if they turn away, then are they in schism, and Allah will suffice thee (for defence) against them. He is the Hearer, the Knower. (137) (We take our) colour from Allah, and who is better than Allah at colouring. We are His worshippers. (138) Say (unto the People of the Scripture): Dispute ye with us concerning Allah when He is our Lord and your Lord? Ours are our works and yours your works.We look to Him alone. (139) Or say ye that Abraham, and Ishmael, and Isaac, and Jacob, and the tribes were Jews or Christians? Say: Do ye know best, or doth Allah? And who is more unjust than he who hideth a testimony which he hath received from Allah? Allah is not unaware of what ye do.


Chapter: Al-Maeda      Verse: 80 - 82


(80) If they believed in Allah and the Prophet and that which is revealed unto him, they would not choose them for their friends. But many of them are of evil conduct. (81) Thou wilt find the most vehement of mankind in hostility to those who believe (to be) the Jews and the idolaters. And thou wilt find the nearest of them in affection to those who believe (to be) those who say: Lo! We are Christians. That is because there are among them priests and monks, and because they are not proud. (82) When they listen to that which hath been revealed unto the messengers, thou seest their eyes overflow with tears because of their recognition of the Truth. They say: Our Lord, we believe. Inscribe us as among the witnesses.

By the fig and the olive, (1) By Mount Sinai, (2) And by this land made safe; (3) Surely We created man of the best stature (4) Then we reduced him to the lowest of the low, (5) Save those who believe and do good works, and theirs is a reward unfailing.

(8) He is indeed successful who causeth it to grow, (9) And he is indeed a failure who stunteth it. (10) (The tribe of) Thamud denied (the truth) in their rebellious pride, (11) When the basest of them broke forth (12) And the messenger of Allah said: It is the she-camel of Allah, so let her drink! (13) But they denied him, and they hamstrung her, so Allah doomed them for their sin and razed (their dwellings). (14) He dreadeth not the sequel (of events). (15)

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful


Alif. Lam. Mim. (1) The Romans have been defeated (2) In the nearer land, and they, after their defeat will be victorious (3) In a few (less then ten) - Allah's is the command in the former case and in the latter - and in that day believers will rejoice (4) In Allah's help to victory. He helpeth to victory whom He will. He is the Mighty, the Merciful. (5) It is a promise of Allah. Allah faileth not His promise, but most of mankind know not. (6) They know only some appearance of the life of the world, and are heedless of the Hereafter. (7) Have they not pondered upon themselves? Allah created not the heavens and the earth, and that which is between them, save with truth and for a destined end. But truly many of mankind are disbelievers in the meeting with their Lord. (8) Have they not travelled in the land and seen the nature of the consequence for those who were before them? They were stronger than these in power, and they dug the earth and built upon it more than these have built. Messengers of their own came unto them with clear proofs (of Allah's Sovereignty). Surely Allah wronged them not, but they did wrong themselves. (9) Then evil was the consequence to those who dealt in evil, because they denied the revelations of Allah and made a mock of them.

      Sayings of  The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)



A man giving in alms one piece of silver in his lifetime is better for him than giving one hundred when about to die.


To meet friends cheerfully and invite them to a feast are charitable acts.


To extend consideration towards neighbors and send them presents are charitable acts.



To acquire knowledge is binding upon all Muslims, whether male or female.


The ink of the scholar is more holy than the blood of the martyr.


He who travels in the search of knowledge, to him God shows the way of Paradise.


Acquire knowledge, because he who acquires it, in the way of the Lord, performs an act of piety; who speaks of it praises the Lord; who seeks it, adores God, who dispenses instruction in it, bestows alms; and who imparts it to its fitting objects, performs an act of devotion to God. Knowledge enables its possessor to distinguish what is forbidden from what is not; lights the way to Heaven; it is our friend in the desert, our companion in solitude, our companion, when bereft of riends; it guides us to happiness; it sustains us in misery; it is our ornament in the company of friends; it serves as an armor against our enemies. With knowledge the creatures of Allah rises to the heights of goodness and to noble position, associates with the sovereigns in this world and attains the perfection of happiness in the next.



Keep yourselves far from envy, because it eats up and takes away good actions, like the fire that eats up and burns wood.


Supression of Anger:

Whoever suppresses his anger, when he has in his power to show it, God will give him a great reward.


He is not strong and powerful, who throws people down, but he is strong who withholds himself from anger.



Deal gently with a people, and be not harsh; cheer them and condemn not.


Much silence and a good disposition; there are no two works better than these.


The best of friends is he who is best in behavior and character.


One who does not practice modesity and does not refrain from shameless deeds is not a Muslim.


Parents and Family:

Paradise lies at the feet of thy mother.


He who wishes to enter Paradise must please his father and mother.



No one who keeps his mind focussed entirely upon himself, can grow large, strong and beautiful in character.


Remembrance of God:

Whoever loves to meet God, God loves to meet him.


The five stated prayers erase the sins which have been committed during the intervals between them if they have not been mortal sins.



God is not merciful to him who is not so to humankind. He who is not kind to God's creation and to his own children, God will not be kind to him.


Whosoever visits a sick person, an angel calls from Heaven: "Be happy in the world and happy be your walking; and take your habitation in Paradise."


Wordly Love and Materialism:

The love of the world, is the root of all evils.


Wealth properly employed is a blessing; and a man may lawfully endeavour to increase it by honest means.

Prophet (Isa') Jesus (Peace be upon Him)

in the Glorious Qur'aan


The Qur’aan tells us a lot of wonderful things about Jesus.  As a result, believers in the Qur’aan love Jesus, honour him, and believe in him.  In fact, no Muslim can be a Muslim unless he or she believes in Jesus, on whom be peace.


The Qur’aan says that Jesus was born of a virgin, that he spoke while he was still only a baby, that he healed the blind and the leper by God’s leave, and that he raised the dead by God’s leave.


What then is the significance of these miracles?  First, the virgin birth.  God demonstrates his power to create in every way.  God created everyone we know from a man and a woman.  But how about Adam, on whom be peace?  God created him from neither a man nor a woman.  And Eve from only a man, but not a woman.  And, finally, to complete the picture, God created Jesus from a woman, but not a man.


What about the other miracles?  These were to show that Jesus was not acting on his own behalf, but that he was backed by God.  The Qur’aan specifies that these miracles were performed by God’s leave.  This may be compared to the Book of Acts in the Bible, chapter 2, verse 22, where it says that the miracles were done by God to show that he approved of Jesus.  Also, note that Jesus himself is recorded in the Gospel of John to have said, “I can do nothing of my own authority” (5:30).  The miracles, therefore, were done not by his own authority, but by God’s authority.


What did Jesus teach?  The Qur’aan tells us that Jesus came to teach the same basic message which was taught by previous prophets from God—that we must shun every false god and worship only the one true God.  Jesus taught that he is the servant and messenger of that one true God, the God of Abraham. These Quranic teachings can be compared with the Bible ( Mark 10:18; Matthew 26:39; John 14:28, 17:3, and 20:17) where Jesus teaches that the one he worshipped is the only true God.  See also Matthew 12:18; Acts 3:13, and 4:27 where we find that his disciples knew him as Servant of God.


The Qur’aan tells us that some of the Israelites rejected Jesus, and conspired to kill him, but Allah (God) rescued Jesus and raised him to Himself.  Allah will cause Jesus to descend again, at which time Jesus will confirm his true teachings and everyone will believe in him as he is and as the Qur’aan teaches about him.


Jesus is the Messiah.  He is a word from Allah, and a spirit from Him.  He is honoured in this world and in the hereafter, and he is one of those brought nearest to Allah.


Jesus was a man who spoke the truth which he heard from God.  This can be compared with the Gospel According to John where Jesus says to the Israelites:  “You are determined to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God”

 (John 8:40).



The Virgin Birth of Jesus

Muslims believe in the virgin birth of Jesus.  When the angels announced to Mary (peace be upon her) about Allah’s promise that she will have a son, she was surprised, since she was a virgin.  “How can this be?”  she thought.  She was reminded that it is easy for Allah to create whatever he wills.


She said:  My Lord!  How can I have a child when no mortal hath touched me?  He said:  So (it will be).  Allah createth what He will.  If He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only:  Be!  and it is (Qur’aan 3:47).


It is not difficult for Allah to do anything he wants.  He can create a child with both human parents or only one.  No miracle is beyond His power.  After all, He had created Adam (peace be upon him) from neither a man nor a woman.  He created the rest of us from both man and woman.  What is so hard if Allah decides to create a human being from a woman only?  He only commands “Be!”  and it occurs.


Some people think that since Jesus, peace be upon him, had no human father then God must be his father.  The Qur’aan rejects this view.  The position of Jesus with Allah is comparable to the position of Adam with Allah.  Just because Adam had no human parent does not mean we should call him the Son of God.


Lo! the likeness of Jesus with Allah is as the likeness of Adam.  He created him from dust, then He said unto him:  Be! and he is. (Qur’aan 3:59).


According to the Qur’aan, everyone except Allah are His servants.


And they say:  the Beneficent hath taken unto Himself a Son.  Assuredly ye utter a disastrous thing, whereby almost the heavens are torn, and the earth is split asunder and the mountains fall to ruins, that ye ascribe to the Beneficent a son, when it is not meet for (the Majesty of) the Beneficent that He should chose a son.  There is none in the heavens and the earth but cometh unto the Beneficent as a slave.  (Qur’aan 19:88-93)


The Miracles of Jesus

According to the Qur’aan, Jesus, on whom be peace, performed the following miracles by Allah’s leave:


1.  Spoke while he was only a baby.

2.  Healed those born blind.

3.  Healed the lepers.

4.  Revived the dead.

5.  Breathed life into a bird made of clay.


In the Qur’aan Allah quotes Jesus, peace be upon him, as saying:


    Lo! I come unto you with a sign from your Lord. Lo! I fashion for you out of clay the likeness of a bird, and I breathe into it and it is a bird by Allah’s leave.  I heal him who was born blind, and the leper, and I raise the dead, by Allah’s leave.  And I announce to you what you eat and what you store up in your houses.  Lo! herein verily is a portent for you if you are to be believers.

    And (I come) confirming that which was before me of the Torah, and to make lawful some of that which was forbidden unto you.  I come unto you with a sign from your Lord, so keep your duty to Allah and obey me.  Lo! Allah is my Lord and your Lord, so worship Him.  That is a straight path.  (Qur’aan 3: 49-51).


Again, in the Qur’aan Allah tells us about the situation on the Day of Judgement:


    In the day when Allah gathers together the messengers and says:  What was your response (from mankind)? they say: We have no knowledge.  Lo! Thou, only Thou art the Knower of Things Hidden.

    When Allah says: O Jesus, son of Mary! Remember My favour unto you and unto your mother; how I strengthened you with the holy Spirit, so that you spoke unto mankind in the cradle as in maturity; and how I taught you the Scripture and Wisdom and the Torah and the Gospel; and how you did shape of clay as it were the likeness of a bird by My permission, and did blow upon it and it was a bird by My permission, and you did heal him who was born blind and the leper by My permission . . . (Qur’aan 5:109-110)


Not all of these miracles are recorded in the canonical gospels, the four gospels contained in the Christian Bible.


The fact that Jesus spoke while he was yet a baby is not written anywhere in the Bible.  This should not be surprising, because none of the Gospels can claim to recover every single event in the life of Jesus.  Instead, the gospel According to John seeks to emphasize that the events were too many to record.


Similarly, the miracle of breathing life into a bird made of clay is not attested by the Christian Bible.  This too should not make us wonder.  It is obvious that the writers of the gospels could write down only the tradition that was available to them.  Furthermore, they could not write down everything they knew about Jesus for they were writing on papyrus material that were very limited in length.


What is worthy to notice here is that the Prophet Muhammad, may peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him, was honest enough to promulgate this information about Jesus.  The religion taught by God through Muhammad would deny the divinity of Jesus.  Any human being, therefore, who wished to deny the divinity of Jesus would have tried to belittle Jesus.  Since Christians looked upon the miracles of Jesus as a proof of his divinity, we might expect that any human being who tries to deny the divinity of Jesus would not have informed people of miracles not previously known to them.  He might have even tried to deny some of the miracles recorded in the canonical gospels.  On the other hand, the prophet Muhammad honestly conveyed the message delivered to him from Allah.  (May the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.)


Allah tells us the truth without fear.  Human beings trying to win followers tell us only what is conducive to winning us over.  They usually withhold information that could lead to opposite conclusions.  On the other hand, Allah informs us about the miracles of Jesus even if people use this information to support their prior commitment to the doctrine of the divinity of Jesus.  Allah does not need to win worshippers.  Those who worship Allah does so for their own good.  And those who worship false gods do so to their own detriment.


What Allah emphasizes, though, is that the miracles of Jesus do not prove he was divine.  The miracles he performed were a sign, a proof, that he was God’s messenger.  He performed them with God’s help and permission.  Those who use his miracles as proof of his divinity would choose to forget the following sayings of Jesus:


I can of my own authority do nothing. (John 5:30)


They also forget the declaration of Peter:


Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves know. (Acts 2:22 KJV).


These passages suggest that Jesus did not do miracles on his own.  These, rather were accomplished by God’s leave.  Allah reminds us of this.  Jesus also constantly repeated to his audience that the miracles he performed were by God’s leave.

How to convert to Islam and become a Muslim

The word “Muslim” means one who submits to the will of God, regardless of their race, nationality or ethnic background. Becoming a Muslim is a simple and easy process that requires no pre-requisites. One may convert alone in privacy, or he/she may do so in the presence of others.


If anyone has a real desire to be a Muslim and has full conviction and strong belief that Islam is the true religion of God, then, all one needs to do is pronounce the “Shahada”, the testimony of faith, without further delay. The “Shahada” is the first and most important of the five pillars of Islam.


With the pronunciation of this testimony, or “Shahada”, with sincere belief and conviction, one enters the fold of Islam.


Upon entering the fold of Islam purely for the Pleasure of God, all of one’s previous sins are forgiven, and one starts a new life of piety and righteousness. The Prophet said to a person who had placed the condition upon the Prophet in accepting Islam that God would forgive his sins:


“Do you not know that accepting Islam destroys all sins which come before it?” (Saheeh Muslim)


When one accepts Islam, they in essence repent from the ways and beliefs of their previous life. One need not be overburdened by sins committed before their acceptance. The person’s record is clean, and it is as if he was just born from his mother’s womb. One should try as much as possible to keep his records clean and strive to do as many good deeds as possible.


The Holy Qur'aan and Hadeeth (prophetic sayings) both stress the importance of following Islam. God states:


“...The only religion in the sight of God is Islam...” (Qur'aan 3:19)


In another verse of the Holy Qur'aan, God states:


“If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter, he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (their selves in the Hellfire).” (Qur'aan 3:85)


In another saying, Muhammad, the Prophet of God, said:


“Whoever testifies that there in none worthy of being worshipped but God, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and Prophet, and that Jesus is the Slave of God, His Prophet, and His word[1] which He bestowed in Mary and a spirit created from Him; and that Paradise (Heaven) is true, and that the Hellfire is true, God will eventually admit him into Paradise, according to his deeds.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)


The Prophet of God, may the blessing and mercy of God be upon him, also reported:


“Indeed God has forbidden to reside eternally in Hell the person who says: “I testify that none has the right to worship except Allah (God),’ seeking thereby the Face of God.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)


The Declaration of the Testimony (Shahada)


To convert to Islam and become a Muslim a person needs to pronounce the below testimony with conviction and understanding its meaning:


I testify “La ilah illa Allah, Muhammad rasoolu Allah.”


The translation of which is:


“I testify that there is no true god (deity) but God (Allah), and that Muhammad is a Messenger (Prophet) of God.”


When someone pronounces the testimony with conviction, then he/she has become a Muslim.  It can be done alone, but it is much better to be done with an adviser ,so he/she may help you in pronouncing it right and to provide you with important resources for new Muslims.


The first part of the testimony consists of the most important truth that God revealed to mankind: that there is nothing divine or worthy of being worshipped except for Almighty God. God states in the Holy Qur'aan:


“We did not send the Messenger before you without revealing to him: ‘none has the right to be worshipped except I, therefore worship Me.’” (Qur'aan 21:25)


This conveys that all forms of worship, whether it be praying, fasting, invoking, seeking refuge in, and offering an animal as sacrifice, must be directed to God and to God alone. Directing any form of worship to other than God (whether it be an angel, a messenger, Jesus, Muhammad, a saint, an idol, the sun, the moon, a tree) is seen as a contradiction to the fundamental message of Islam, and it is an unforgivable sin unless it is repented from before one dies. All forms of worship must be directed to God only.


Worship means the performance of deeds and sayings that please God, things which He commanded or encouraged to be performed, either by direct textual proof or by analogy. Thus, worship is not restricted to the implementation of the five pillars of Islam, but also includes every aspect of life. Providing food for one’s family, and saying something pleasant to cheer a person up are also considered acts of worship, if such is done with the intention of pleasing God. This means that, to be accepted, all acts of worship must be carried out sincerely for the Sake of God alone.


The second part of the testimony means that Prophet Muhammad is the servant and chosen messenger of God. This implies that one obeys and follows the commands of the Prophet. One must believe in what he has said, practice his teachings and avoid what he has forbidden. One must therefore worship God only according to his teaching alone, for all the teachings of the Prophet were in fact revelations and inspirations conveyed to him by God.


One must try to mold their lives and character and emulate the Prophet, as he was a living example for humans to follow. God says:


“And indeed you are upon a high standard of moral character.” (Qur'aan 68:4)


God also said:


“And in deed you have a good and upright example in the Messenger of God, for those who hope in the meeting of God and the Hereafter, and mentions God much.” (Qur'aan 33:21)


He was sent in order to practically implement the Qur'aan, in his saying, deeds, legislation as well as all other facets of life. Aisha, the wife of the Prophet, when asked about the character of the Prophet, replied:


“His character was that of the Qur'aan.” (As-Suyooti)


To truly adhere to the second part of the Shahada is to follow his example in all walks of life. God says:


“Say (O Muhammad to mankind): ‘If you (really) love God, then follow me.’” (Qur'aan 3:31)


It also means that Muhammad is the Final Prophet and Messenger of God, and that no (true) Prophet can come after him.


“Muhammad is not the father of any man among you but he is the Messenger of God and the last (end) of the Prophets and God is Ever All-Aware of everything.” (Qur'aan 33:40)
