What is Islam religion?

One of the major benefits of converting to Islam is that it lifts the fog of ignorance. Suddenly, life and all its ups and downs becomes a little bit clearer, it all makes a little bit more sense. The answers to the big questions that have been plaguing humankind for millennial are all laid bare.

At any time during our lives, when we stand on the precipice, or at the fork in the road we ask ourselves: “Is this it, is this really all there is?” Well the answer is no, this is not all there is. Islam answers the questions and asks us to look beyond materialism and see that this life is little more than a transient stop on the way to life everlasting. Islam gives a clear aim and purpose to life. As Muslims, we are able to find answers in the words of God, the Quran, and in the example of His final messenger, Prophet Muhammad (SAWS).

Being Muslim indicates complete submission to the Creator and the fact that we were only created to worship God Alone. That is the reason we are here, on this spinning planet in the seemingly infinite universe; to worship God and only God Alone. Converting to Islam frees us from the only potentially unforgiveable sin, associating partners with God.

The religion of Islam was revealed for the benefit of all humankind who will exist until the Day of Judgement. It is a complete way of life, not something only practiced on the weekend or at annual festivals. A believer’s relationship with God is twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. It does not stop and start. Through His infinite mercy,

God has provided us with a holistic approach to life, one that covers all aspects, spiritual, emotional and physical. He has not left us alone to stumble in the darkness rather God has given us the Quran, a book of guidance. He has also given us the authentic traditions of Prophet Muhammad that explain and expand on the guidance of the Quran.

Islam fulfils and balances our physical and spiritual needs. This system, designed by the Creator for his creation, not only expects a high standard of behaviour, morality and ethics but it also allows each and every human act to be transformed into worship. In fact, God commands the believers to dedicate their lives to Him.
