What we're about
As salamo alaikum, This is a group for Non-Muslims ( curious to learn about islam ), Muslims ( Reverts, Converts and Born Muslims ). The aim of creating this group is to understand Islam in the light of Quran and the teachings of the Holy Prophet(p.b.u.h) and his family, God willing/inshAllah, to gain the pleasure of God and seek nearness to Him. Let's educate ourselves about the beauty of Islam and bring it deeper into our lives. Islam is the religion of knowledge, it is a guide to the straight path from darkness into the light. The first aayah of the Qur’an to be revealed enjoined reading which is the key to knowledge. God/Allah (SWT) says: “Read! In the Name of your Lord Who has created (all that exists). He has created man from a clot (a piece of thick coagulated blood). Read! And your Lord is the Most Generous. Who has taught (the writing) by the pen. He has taught man that which he knew not” [al-‘Alaq 96:1-5] Islam calls us to seek knowledge. The Prophet (PBUH) made seeking knowledge an obligation upon every Muslim. The Prophet of Allah (saaw) was asked: “What is Knowledge?” He replied: “to keep silent”. He was asked: “Then?” He said: “to listen attentively”. He was asked: “Then?” He said: “to remember”. He was asked: “Then?” He said: “to act upon (what is learned)”. He was asked: “Then?” He said: “to propagate”. [Al-Majlisi, Bihar al-Anwar, vol. 2, p. 28] There is no goodness in knowledge which is not confirmed by action, or words which are not confirmed by deeds:Allah says: “O you who believe, why do you say what you do not do? It is most hateful to Allah for you to say what you do not do.” [Sûrah al-Saff: 2-3] So let us learn Islam : the perfect way of life and and bring it into our deeds and actions. May God guide us to straight path/siratal mustaquim ishAllah. Welcome to our group! Please feel free to post any suggestions or comments. May God Bless you/Jazakallah khair !!!
