Allah* invites to the Abode of Peace

"And Allah summons to the abode of peace, and leads whom He wills to the straight path" (The Qurán 10:25)

Invoke your Lord with humility and in secret. He likes not the aggressors. And do not do mischief on the earth, after it has been set in order, And Invoke Him with fear and hope; Surely, Allah's mercy is (ever) near unto the good-doers. (The Qurán 7:55)

'Terrorism' (WTC attack type). 'Oppression' (Israeli type). 'Unjustified Aggression' (American hegemony type). Some by the misguided, some by the arrogant, but 'All' of these are just various kinds of 'mischief-making' which is strictly hated by God. Those who continue to do such excesses in God's world, whether in the name of religion or without it, unless they repent sincerely and answer the just call of God, face a severe punishment from the Almighty on the Final Day of Reckoning when not a single soul will be dealt unjustly.

"...We ordained for the Children of Israel that if anyone slew a person unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land it would be as if he slew the whole people. Then although there came to them Our apostles with clear Signs yet even after that many of them continued to commit excesses in the land." (The Qur'an 5:32)

  • THE WAR ON IRAQ: The present attitude of the rulers of the United States of America reflects sheer contempt for the idea of Democracy - 'the rule of the People'. While the majority world opinion including that of American public is strongly strongly against any war on Iraq, President Bush hardly seems to consider the public important.

  • Senseless violence in India - Moral obligation of Humanity : [Added 1-Mar-2002] Read our word & message to Muslims & Indians on the senseless criminal massacres of Hindus and Muslims. May sanity prevail. 

Let us unite against the Mischief-makers

Islam: Reminding of God's Original Message

  • Meaning of Islam...Click to drop down

  • The Message... Click to drop down

    • Islam calls all humanity to surrender to the will of God, the only true God of all humanity, because our lives, all our possessions and all that exists in the universe are nothing but favors and blessings from this one God.

    • The only purpose of our existence is to gain the approval of our Creator, that is, to do that which pleases God and refrain from that which is abhorred by God. This life is thus a test of our surrender.

    • All human-beings will be held accountable for the deeds they commit in this world and will be rewarded justly for their deed.

    • This is the same message which was conveyed by all the prophets of God, and the message of Islam is a reminder of the same message.

  • About God... Click to drop down

    • The Arabic word for God is Allah and means 'The God'. Islam emphasizes this simple pure notion of one God and refutes the concepts of trinity or plurality for Godhead as false lacking any scriptural or scientific evidence. Islamic monotheism (Tawhid) is the most important concept to be understood as everything else relating to social, economic, political or moral/spiritual principles of Islam are derived from it.

    • Islam demands that belief in God be based upon reason and contemplation and not on blind faith.

  • About the Prophets... Click to drop down

    • Islam is the same religion which was revealed by God Almighty to all the Messengers and Prophets of God (peace be upon them all) and does not claim to be a new separate religion. Islam is the completion of God's guidance to humanity. 

    • In contrast to the other prophets of God who were chosen by God for a particular nation or tribe, Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the last messenger chosen by the God for all humanity.

    • More in the section Who is Muhammad (pbuh)?

  • About the Scriptures... Click to drop down

    • God sent His guidance to men by inspiring men from amongst mankind known as Prophets and to whom God revealed scriptures.

    • The Qurán is the final scripture revealed by God to Muhammad and it confirms the Torah (Taurat-scripture revealed to Moses), the Bible (Injeel-scripture revealed to Jesus) and the Psalms (scripture revealed to David). Peace be upon all the prophets of God.

    • More in the section What is the Qur'aan ?

  • An Invitation... Click to drop down

    • God invites all humanity to embrace His last and final call to His chosen path Islam. When the Qurán was revealed, Christians and Jews were the people following the scriptures revealed to previous prophets and so they were called to embrace God's final revelation to his prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Prophet Muhammad had started his prophetic mission by inviting the polytheists of Makkah to the worship of One God before he had to migrate to Medina.

    • Islam however categorically states that there is no compulsion in religion (Holy Quran 2:256) and everyone is given freedom by God whether to accept His final call or not. The messenger's duty is only to convey the truth (Holy Quran 5:99).

    • Read No compulsion in Religion and Tolerance in Islam
