From the first day when Adam A.s arrived on the Planet Earth as a slave and messenger of Allah. The question was, if Adam A.s was the first messenger, in which Civilisation would he spread the message of Allah in?
In my opinion that he was designated as a slave of Allah and (عبدالله) after few moments when his wife arrived in this world, the production of Adam A.s’s family started and he spread the message of Allah as a messenger on earth between his family and so on.
What was the Message?
When Adam A.s was sent on Earth by Allah. He started bawling in front of his creator (Allah) and apologised for his mistake but he didn’t know the suitable words for an apology.
رَبَّنَا ظَلَمْنَا أَنفُسَنَا وَإِن لَّمْ تَغْفِرْ لَنَا وَتَرْحَمْنَا لَنَكُونَنَّ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ
Allah knows everything and Allah is Rehman (الرحمن و غفار) Allah taught him the special words for an apology and then Adam A.s was ordered by Allah to stay here for a limited time.
I think this was the first message from Allah to His creation (Adam) on earth
In my opinion, the beginning of Religion for human beings was started with this ayat which is mentioned above.
What is a Religion?
In general terminology here’s the definition;
“the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods”
In Islamic terminology religion is an instruction received by messengers of Allah.
These instructions(Quran) is for humans and Jinns only as written in Quran not for any third creation as a message and messenger was selected by Allah Only and the last messenger was Prophet Hazrat Muhammad S.a.w.. Quran said:
مَا كَانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبَا أَحَدٍ مِنْ رِجَالِكُمْ وَلَٰكِنْ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ وَخَاتَمَ النَّبِيِّينَ ۗ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَىءٍ عَلِيمًا * يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اذْكُرُوا اللَّهَ ذِكْرًا كَثِيرًا
In the religion different types of instruction following by us(Muslims) example: Faith ,worship ,laws , charity and belief system etc
Impact of Religion in our life is very deep and reality based.our societies and daily matters is handled by Religious instructions or influence of Religion in our life make us better human and Quran said: “Momin” is better then “ordinary human”, these both are conditions(of faith) only not species.
Life between these instructions called Islam and who are practicing it called Muslim.
The Revolutionary Moment
There are different types of Culture in this world like Indian,Arabic and Chinese etc.
In my opinion ,a Religion which is practicing under influence of any culture is not pure then a milk in cup of a tea.i mean religion is disturbing by local culture and we get far from our religion due to cultural impact.
Let’s have a general example from Islam which is practicing in sub-continent
Music is prohibited in Islam but in sub-continent music is in tradition even in Muslims ,Hindu and Christians .we all lived together with multi cultural tradition.
This is open violation of Islamic law and ought we are try to stop that but mostly people (Muslim) like n love it.
Family system also lead by culture in Sub-continent.specially cousin marriage is not recommended due to un-realistic reason which is part of Christianity. In Christianity cousin marriage is not allowed or promoted but Islam never ever restrict us.
Religions have their own culture and if any tradition is existing ,the religious culture overcome on it and make changes according to its law.the purity of Religion never loose due to true laws.
Most Religions loose their true worth due changes and cultural influence and most of their followers are convert into local cultural preachers like Americans or take the culture as Religion.
Islam is a Best Religion because they have their own culture and also Islam have power to make Powerful Islamic culture.
Instructions from Quran and Sunnah is enough to built Islamic culture anywhere in any upcoming centuries
This ayat from Quran tell us how to grow
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا أَطِيعُوا اللَّهَ وَأَطِيعُوا الرَّسُولَ وَأُولِي الْأَمْرِ مِنكُمْ ۖ فَإِن تَنَازَعْتُمْ فِي شَيْءٍ فَرُدُّوهُ إِلَى اللَّهِ وَالرَّسُولِ إِن كُنتُمْ تُؤْمِنُونَ بِاللَّهِ وَالْيَوْمِ الْآخِرِ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ خَيْرٌ وَأَحْسَنُ تَأْوِيلًا
The True and Only Religion
When prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H)
Announced his Prophecy 1400 years before,all religion excluded Islam became null and void at that time only Religion which was true that time was Islam which will remain till judgment day
﴿إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الإِسْلَـمُ﴾
(Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam.)
¿Question is why the other Religions got fired except Christianity?
All other Religious scriptures changed by their saint as their wish.different editions were introduced for followed up, with the passage of time the actual words of God disolved in preachers wish or as per king requirement.but one code remain wrote their scriptures that one was about last messenger.
Instructions from Allah specially laws prayers and faith overwrote by saints or preachers at that time include Bible, old Testament and other types of Religious material.these kind of problems started before Islam,
After this Sin preachers of different Religions started work on hypothesis ,in result idol worship starts.
The Curiel people changed the word of God and this work impacted on their life, culture and region,after this whole Religion was dissolved with Culture.Now they have no true religion and Religious culture,all their preaching is based on hypocrisy.
“On day I read a scientific book and the writer was Stephen Hawking and he said to pope there is no God” I got worried about these words.hows possible that big scientist claim that type of statement after while I got it that Bible is not word of God it’s changed with passage of time, that’s why according to bible he is right.
Same story happened with other Religions most people converted to Muslim Alhamdolillah because they know or they realised the truth.
Why Islam ? I think I wrote the answer above but I want to teach my follower that’s why I will give a reason for why?
After prophet Essa A.s (Jesus) the great gap of almost 600 years occurred. Meanwhile all religion mixed up and preachers made a fool out of their people. Illiteracy ratio increased and only the senior preachers had the right to know, learn and amend their holy scriptures. As time went by there remained only the scriptures written by humans and not God.
Then the last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) came and again Allah sent the whole Instructions (Al Quran) through him for humanity with all the laws, codes, culture and prosperity.
Today the Islamic law is practiced in most countries even with its cultural aspects.
In Islam mostly Muslims remember Quran orally without any mistake and also remember Hadiths. We have a strong teaching system. Even Allah give assurance that no one can make changes in his words (Quran). From last 1400+ years Quran is in the same language and Condition. This Religion is valid till the Day of Judgment.
