PostSubject: Facts About Islam   Sun 29 Jul - 23:29

1.Islam" means "peace through the submission to God".

2."Muslim" means "anyone or anything that submits itself to the will of God".

3.Islam is a complete way of life that governs all facets of life:moral, spiritual, social, political,

economical, intellectual, etc.

4.Allah is not the God of Muslims only. He is the God of all people and all creation. Just because people refer to God using different terms does not mean that they are different gods. Spanish people refer to God as "Dios" and French people refer to God as "Dieu", yet they are all the same God. Interestingly, most Arab Jews and Arab Christians refer to God as "Allah". And the word Allah in Arabic appears on the walls of many Arab churches.

5.The Islamic concept of God is that He is loving, merciful, and compassionate. But Islam also teaches that He is just and swift in punishment. Nevertheless, Allah once said to Prophet Muhammad, "My mercy prevails over my wrath." Islam teaches a balance between fear and hope,protecting one from both complacency and despair.

6.Muslims do not believe in the concept of "vicarious atonement" but rather believe in the law of personal responsibility. Islam teaches that each person is responsible for his or her own actions. On the Day of Judgment Muslims believe that every person will be resurrected and
will have to answer to God for their every word, thought, and deed.Consequently, a practicing Muslim is always striving to be righteous.

7.The word "jihad" does not mean "holy war". Instead, it means the inner struggle that one endures in trying to submit their will to the will of God. Some Muslims may say they are going for "jihad" when fighting in a war to defend themselves or their fellow Muslims, but they only
say this because they are conceding that it will be a tremendous struggle. But there are many other forms of jihad, which are more relevant to the everyday life of a Muslim such as the struggles against laziness,arrogance, stinginess, or the struggle against a tyrant ruler or against the temptation of Satan, or against one's own ego, etc.

8. Zaid RadiAllahu Anhu is the only Sahabi whose name is mentioned in the Quran (Surah Ahzaab)

9. Rasulullah (SAW) made duaa to Allah Subhanaho Wa Taala that, He
strenghten Islam with Umar bin Al-Khattab or Umar bin Hisham i.e. Abu
Jahl. Allah accepted the duaa in favour of Umar bin Al-Khattab (RA).

10. Abu Bakr (RA) received the title 'As-Siddeeq' on readily saying
that he accepted Rasulullah (SAW)'s Night Journey (Mairaaj) to the
Heavens when the Kuffar asked for his opinion.

11. Ali bin Abi Talib (RA) walked all the way from Makkah to Madeenah,
at the time of Hijrah, while hiding from the pursuing Quraish.

12. Abu Ayyub Al-Ansari (RA) was blessed by Allah to be the first host of Rasulullah (SAW) in Madeenah.

13. Rasulullah (SAW) called Yahya (AS) son of Zakariyyah (AS) 'Shaheed bin Shaheed' meaning 'Martyr son of Martyr'.

14. Uthman bin Affan (RA) did not fight in the battle of Badr as he
stayed home to take care of his sick wife Ruqayyah (RA), daughter of
Rasulullah (SAW). She died shortly before Madeenah received the news of
Victory for the Muslims in the battlefield.

15. All of Rasulullah (SAW)'s children died before him except for his daughter, Fatimah (RA).

16. Amr bin Thabit (RA) became a muslim during the battle of Uhud, and
died as a martyr in the same battle. When asked about him, Rasulullah
(SAW) said that he was from the People of Paradise, even though he had
not prayed a single salaah.

17. Zaid bin Harith (RA) accompanied Rasulullah (SAW)when he went Taif.

18. The cause of Abu Lahab's death was the wife of his brother Abbas
(RA), Umul-Fadl (RA). on hearing about the defeat of non-muslims at
Badr, he started abusing a muslim servant, so she took a log and hit
him, which caused his skull to crack. He died a few days later because
of it.

19. Ameer ul Mumineen Uthman RA. had given the duty of collecting and
compiling the first holy Quran to Zaid Ibn Thaabit RA., who fulfilled it
by the help of other companions and off course the help of Allah. Zaid
RA. once said that "By Allah, if they had asked me to move a whole
mountain from its place, it would have been easier than the task of
compiling the Quran which they ordered me to fulfill".

20. Abdullah Ibn Masood RA. was the first Muslim to read the Quran
publicly near the Kaaba in Makkah, after the Prophet Sallallahu Alaihi
Waa Sallam.
