  1. There is no happiness, peace or tranquility similar to that caused by monotheism. Allah says: {It is those who believe (in the Oneness of Allâh and worship none but Him Alone) and confuse not their belief with Zulm (wrong i.e. by worshipping others besides Allâh), for them (only) there is security and they are the guided.}(Al-An’âm:82) Thus, the more one’s monotheism is completed and perfected, the more he feels secure, tranquil and happy in this world and the Hereafter, because Allah widens his chest and fills it with pleasure and relief. On the other hand, polytheism - Allah forbid –brings misery and distress into one’s chest, as if he was ascending into the sky. Allah says: {And whomsoever Allâh wills to guide, He opens his breast to Islâm, and whomsoever He wills to send astray, He makes his breast closed and constricted, as if he is climbing up to the sky. Thus Allâh puts the wrath on those who believe not.}(Al-An’âm:125) source: https://www.path-2-happiness.com/en/the-path-to-happiness-the-path-to-happiness-the-causes-of-happiness
  2. When Allah created all the children of Adam, He ordered them (the angels) to prostrate to him. {And surely, We created you (your father Adam) and then gave you shape (the noble shape of a human being), then We told the angels, “Prostrate to Adam”, and they prostrated, except Iblîs (Satan), he refused to be of those who prostrate.}(Al-A’râf:11) Allah created man and honored him. He preferred him over many of what He had initially created. Allah, the Exalted, says: {And indeed We have honoured the Children of Adam, and We have carried them on land and sea, and have provided them with At-Taiyibât (lawful good things), and have preferred them above many of those whom We have created with a marked preference.}(Al-Isrâ’:70) Therefore, he is an honored and preferred creature, since he was favored and revered by his Lord with the following: 1-Dignity and preference in his physical constitution: Allah, the Exalted, says: {Verily, We created man of the best stature (mould)}(At-Tin:4)Allah has created him in the best stature; with a well-organized body and with each part fitting in with the other, and also with the blessings of the mind, and the ability to think, utter and hear. He has created him in the best form and shape. 2-Dignity and preference in having the land and sea subjected to him: This includes the atmosphere, and this confirms how Allah has honored man in the way explained above. First; because Allah, the Almighty, has subjected all these entities to man, and singled him out from the rest of His creation. This serves as evidence that in this world man takes the position similar to a president who is followed or a king who is obeyed, and everything else is like his flock which follows behind him. Allah, the Almighty, says: {And indeed We have honoured the Children of Adam, and We have carried them on land and sea}(Al-Isrâ’:70) Rather, Allah, the Exalted, tells us in His book that He has made whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth subject to man, as a means of honoring him. And has subjected to you all that is in the heavens and all that is in the earth; it is all as a favour and kindness from Him. {Verily, in it are signs for a people who think deeply.}(Al-Jâthiya:13) 3-The provision of the good and lawful things: Allah has granted humans the privilege to eat whatever he pleases of the lawful things. He gave food many benefits, and He made the food of man plentiful and full of variety in comparison to that which the animals eat. Allah has honored man by blessing him with all that through His Grace and Generosity (Glorified be He). {Who has made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky as a canopy, and sent down water (rain) from the sky and brought forth therewith fruits as a provision for you. Then do not set up rivals unto Allah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped).}(Al-Baqarah:22) 4-Preference over much of what He has created (Glorified be He). Hence, man senses his dignity, greatness, stature, and his magnitude due to the honor that Allah gave him. As man is not considered a small and insignificant creation in the world of living matter – he is not considered a small trivial thing as he is considered when he is measured with those materialistic scales which considers the earth itself as a small trivial thing, where one atomic bomb can wipe off two hundred thousand people, as happened in Hiroshima. The significance of man in the view of Islam lies in being held in high esteem by Allah. When we learn about the creation through the verses of the Qur’an, the prostration of the universe to Adam and then the expulsion of Satan by Allah due to him being the only entity who refused to prostrate to Adam, we realize just how important this basis is at the time when humanity can no longer find salvation from its predicament, because of the imposition of the strong on the weak, except through this path - the path of the Qur’an which grants man his freedom, his dignity and his full freedom of choice. On the path of mercy and honor, it is not acceptable to insult a human being, disrespect him, or ridicule him. Allah, the Almighty says: {O you who believe! Let not a group scoff at another group, it may be that the latter are better than the former; nor let (some) women scoff at other women, it may be that the latter are better than the former, nor defame one another, nor insult one another by nicknames. How bad is it, to insult one’s brother after having Faith [i.e. to call your Muslim brother (a faithful believer) as: “O sinner”, or “O wicked”, etc.]. And whosoever does not repent, then such are indeed Zâlimûn (wrong-doers, etc.).}(Al-Hujurât:11) There is no superiority of an Arab over a non-Arab, or of a non-Arab over an Arab; or of a white person over a black one, or a black person over a white one, except in piety. Truly, the noblest among you is he who is the most pious. Allah, the Almighty, says: {O you who believe! Avoid much suspicions, indeed some suspicions are sins. And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you like to eat the flesh of his dead brother? You would hate it (so hate backbiting) . And fear Allâh. Verily, Allâh is the One Who accepts repentance, Most Merciful.}(Al-Hujurât:13) The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) said: “Verily, Allah does not look at your appearance or your wealth, but rather He looks at your hearts and your actions.”[Muslim] SOURCE: islamkingdom
  3. Make Happiness Your Goal

    “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” Einstein quotes source: islamkingdom
  4. Morality

    It is generally accepted that the purpose of a law is not achieved by it just being enacted. Rather, it depends on the manner in which the people respond to it; by adhering to it or by exceeding the limits. Moreover, that which is desired to be achieved by the law is not attained by merely perfecting its drafting and its provisions, but to be more precise, it is better accomplished by being put into practice by those whom it was aimed at, provided that they are motivated from their inside and in their hearts. This motivation comes from their faith in the justice of that law, and their satisfaction with it and, in the case of religion, their belief that they will receive rewards from the legislator for contentedly implementing His decrees and laws. Islamic legislation is founded on the individual’s satisfaction and personal convictions, and Allah also commands to satisfy and use convincing arguments with others when teaching Islam: 21] and speak to them an effective word (i.e. to believe in Allâh, worship Him, obey Him, and be afraid of Him) to reach their inner selves. (An-Nisâ’:63) 21] So remind them (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu ‘alayhi wa sallam]) – you are only one who reminds. 22] You are not a dictator over them (al-Ghaashiyah :21-22)It is for this reason that the Prophet (pbuh) was specifically sent.The Prophet (pbuh) said: “Verily, I was sent to perfect honorable morals.” SOURCE: islamkingdom
  5. Prophet Abraham was indeed a monotheistic prophet and this was manifested in all his conduct. Allah, therefore, says the following when describing him: {Verily, Ibrâhim (Abraham) was an Ummah (a leader having all the good righteous qualities), or a nation, obedient to Allah, Hanifa (i.e. to worship none but Allâh), and he was not one of those who were Al-Mushrikûn (polytheists, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allâh, and those who joined partners with Allâh).} (An-Nahl:120)He (pbuh) grew up among polytheists. Even his father was one of the idolaters, and carved and served the idols. Abraham argued with his father and people: {And (remember) when Ibrâhim (Abraham) said to his father Azar: “Do you take idols as âlihâ (gods)? Verily, I see you and your people in manifest error.”} (Al-An’âm:74)With compelling arguments he firmly rejected their polytheistic ways. He looked at Allah’s ever so apparent signs. {“When the night covered him over with darkness he saw a star. He said: “This is my lord.” But when it set,”} (Al-An’âm:76)That is: he saw how it set. {76. he said: “I like not those that set.” 77. When he saw the moon rising up,} (Al-An’âm:76-77)That is: appearing in the horizon, and he saw that some people worshipped it. he said: {“This is my lord.”} (Al-An’âm:77)Condemning their actions, astonished by their worship!! Taking the opportunity, he said: {But when it set} (Al-An’âm:77)That is: disappeared below the horizon. He went to the people and said: {77. He said: “Unless my Lord guides me, I shall surely be among the erring people.”78. When he saw the sun rising up} (Al-An’âm:77-78)He saw how the people were worshipping it. He said: {“This is my lord. This is greater.”} (Al-An’âm:78)Condemning their actions!! Astonished at how they made a god out of the sun?! {But when it set} (Al-An’âm:78)and subsequently disappeared from sight. He went to those who were worshipping it and said to them: {78. O my people! I am indeed free from all that you join as partners in worship with Allâh. 79. Verily, I have turned my face towards Him Who has created the heavens and the earth Hanifa (Islâmic Monotheism, i.e. worshipping none but Allâh Alone) and I am not of Al-Mushrikûn (see V.2:105)”.} (Al-An’âm:78-79) source: islamkingdom
  6. If an individual is in dire need of religion, then certainly the need of the society for religion is even greater and stronger. Religion is the protective shield of the community, because human life cannot exist except through the cooperation among its members for its betterment: {Help you one another in Al¬Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety); but do not help one another in sin and transgression.}(Al-Mâ’idah:2) This cooperation cannot exist except through a system that regulates their relationships, defines their duties, and ensures their rights.This system could only come from the most Kind, the All-Aware, the All-Knowing of what humans need: {Should not He Who has created know? And He is the Most Kind and Courteous (to His slaves) All-Aware (of everything).} (Al-Mulk:14)The more humanity deviates from religion and Allah’s laws and systems, the more it disappears and sinks into the darkness of doubt, misguidance, the feeling of being lost, confusion, misery and unhappiness. source:islamkingdom
  7. With The Priest

    he family returned to the hotel in the evening and later George received a call from Janolka telling him that the appointment with the priest, Luigi, would be at the church at 10 a.m. the following day, and that he was expecting them. •George: Katrina, that was Janolka informing us that the appointment with the priest is tomorrow at 10a.m., but what shall we do with the kids? •Katrina: We can either take them with us or leave them at the park next to the church – it’s a wonderful park. •George: I think it will be better to leave them at the park. At 8:30am, George, Katrina and the kids went to the fantastic playground in the park next to the church. They left Michael and Sally there after they had asked the caretaker to watch over them. The couple then went to the church to meet with the priest, for their 10 a.m. appointment. Janolka welcomed them and then they went to meet the priest, Luigi, who warmly received them. •Father Luigi: Hello, Katrina. I’ve heard about your great efforts in Britain, may God bless you. •Katrina: This is due to what we’ve learned from you and your knowledge from which we have benefited. •Father Luigi: Hello George. Janolka has told me about your questions and his admiration for the way you think; so please, go ahead and ask anything you want. •George: I have four questions. I don’t want to waste your time so I’ll get straight to the point. The first one is: I can’t understand how come the Lord is one and three at the same time? I’ve read a lot about this and heard many explanations, but I haven’t managed to reach an answer yet, and - I apologize for saying this - I get the feeling that Christianity is just like paganism. The expression of the priest’s face changed. He looked at Janolka’s and Katrina’s faces, and then gazed down and said: •Father Luigi: And what’s the second question? •George: Is Jesus divine or human? Is he a god to be worshipped or a servant who was murdered? Did the Lord have to die to save humanity?! Isn’t it possible to save humanity without needing to die? •Father Luigi: Okay George, what is the third question?
