The Being that has created the universe and everything else is Allah God Almighty, hope this site proved this to you?
how does Allah God almight communicate to us
how does a king commicate to his poeple he will send his servant to the people and command them what the king wants anyone breaking the kings law will be imprisoned and punished.
Allah God Almighty sent many messngers and prophet through out the history, He (Almighty) sent Jesus, Moses to give a message to their people choose the best human being amongst us to give mankind the message again his name was Mohammed sws.
Mohammed sws was a simple man living in the desert. He was inspired by God and receive the revealation from Him which is the Holy Quran
How do we know that the Quran is true reveleation from God we can use same logic as the story of how the king sends his servent with the message
how would the people know the servent is from the king?
the servant has to show proof? ie a badge, sime kind of uniform but the incase of Mohammed sws how would He proof he is the prophet of God
He has to do more to proof that he was a prophet, He showed miracles eg He made the moon split in to 2 the problem with this miracle is that we were not there so how can we know the truth? we have to examin the Quran. the Quran is full of miracles it has historical
miracles, scientifical miracles for example expansion of the universe, big bang. the Quran was revelead 1400 years ago how can
this text recited by a man (Mohammed sws) who could not read or write contain such miracles that scientist have recently discovered this can only mean that the text is not from Mohammed sws but its from true God of the universe Allah.
What is our purpose in life?
once we believe in this creator of the heaven and earth Allah God Almighty, we have to accept that He is the only God and there is no other gods besides Him and Mohammed sws is messenger and prophet
then we have do good to please our creator God Allah and obey all his commandments for example if we do good action knowing that Allah is watching us this is like worship Him, so in other words He created
us to worship Him, He tells us to pray, fast, and give charity these are the main pillers if Islam (submission to will of God) we will be worshiping Him. thats our purpose in life
When he grew up he had to take up the family business. At that time merchants in Mecca were well off. In Mecca there was a lot of money to be made out of the pilgrims who came from all over the east to visit the Kaabah. Built of three layers of stone, theKabbah isbelieved to have been built by Ibrahim and his son Ismail.
Muhammad sws was already known to be very sincere, honest and kind hearted. These traits also left a mark over his business life. he Muhammad was disturbed by the way people around him led their life - specially the spiritual life.
His tribesmen, though Semitic, like the Hebrews, had been riddled by superstitious beliefs, and multiplicity of faiths. They had an assortment of gods, whose images they carved and worshipped with strange kinds of practices. There was no uniformity in the faith. Nor was any discipline in the spiritual life. And Muhammad wanted to change all these.
It is believed that Muhammad was one day visited by the archangel Gabriel who brought message from God, or in his language, Allah. Inspired by Allah, Muhammad decided to give up the business and took to a life of spiritual empowerment. It then devoted himself to prayer, meditation, preaching and helping the poor. He was then around forty.
Muhammad condemned the Arabs for worshipping a host of gods, and told his audiences that Allah was the one and only true God.
Muhammad was born in about 570 AD in the small town of Mecca.
Quran holds all the revelations that Muhammad received from Allah over a period of 23 years. According to Islamic history, after Prophet Muhammad's death, they were compiled under the direction of the first Sunni Caliph Abu Bakr about 1,400 years ago. And this is what we see in the present day's Quran.
Muhammad instructed his followers to destroy all his personal belongings when he died. For, he believed that none but Allah should be venerated. This is why Islam forbids any form of idolism and deity worship.
In course of time Islam acquired believers all over the world. From North Africa to the farthest point of South East Asia. Today, Islam is one of the world's major religions, with followers estimated to be over 600 million. Or, about one fifth of world's total population.
