Strong Principles of Islam

Suratun-Nahl – (The Bee) – 16

‘A-‘uu-zu  Billaahi minash-Shay-taanir- Rajiim.
(I seek refuge in God from Satan the outcast)

(In the name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

ثُمَّ أَوْحَيْنَآ إِلَيْكَ أَنِ ٱتَّبِعْ مِلَّةَ إِبْرَٰهِيمَ حَنِيفًا وَمَا كَانَ مِنَ ٱلْمُشْرِكِينَ 123


123.  And afterward We inspired thee (O Muhammad, saying): Follow the Religion of Abraham, as one by nature Upright. And he was not of the idolaters. 123.  Summa  ‘aw-hayNaaa  ‘ilayka  ‘anittabi’  Millata  ‘Ibraa-hiima  Haniifaa.  Wa  maa  kaana  minal-  mushrikiin. 




There is a mention about the Religion of Messenger Abraham (peace be upon him) in this verse, from which it is found that during his period, strong Principles of the Religion had been recorded in writing. The same Principles were presented before the Children of Israel by the Messengers Moses and Jesus (peace be upon them). But the people of the Scripture accepted some of them and rejected some of them, and in this way, the Jews disfigured the entire Religion.


Messenger Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) was sent to make the same Religion current again and produce it before the mankind in its original and complete form. Holy Qur’an was revealed upon him, in which those Principles of the Religion were explained and for all the human beings of the entire world, it was produced in full and controlled form.


Origin of those entire Principles is that human beings should not be interested in any thing from any person save Allah Almighty, and they should turn unto Him with pure intention by turning away from all.


Summary of above mentioned description is that Abraham (peace be upon him) was The Monotheist who was never an idol-worshiper {he (peace be upon him) did never make any partner of Allah Almighty or in His Attributes}. He (peace be upon him) believed that only One God is The Creator, Master and Lord of all. He (peace be upon him) used to ask Him for whatever he wished. He (peace be upon him) was sure that the entire Bounties of the world have been bestowed by Allah Almighty. Therefore, we should be thankful to Him every time. We should never worship any other but Him only.


It is the summary of Islam and the same name (Islam) of this Religion has been chosen by him (peace be upon him). Last Messenger, Muhammad (grace, glory, blessings and peace of Allah Almighty be upon him) has come in this world to regularize the same commandments. To remove the stubbornness of the mankind, it is the proved cure.
