The Fundamental Articles of Faith in Islam.
The true, faithful Muslim beleives in the following principle articles of faith:
- A Muslim believes in One God, whos has no partners, and is the Supreme and the Eternal, the Infinite and the Mighty, the Merciful and the Compassionate, the Creator and the Provider.
- A Muslim believes in all the Messengers of God without any discrimination among them. Every known nation had a Messenger from Almight God. They were chosen by God to teach mankind and deliver His divine message. The Qur’an mentions the names of twenty five of them. Among them Muhammad (PEace be upon him) stands as the last Messenger.
- A Muslim believes in all the scriptures and revelations of God. They were the guiding light which the Messengers received to show their respected people the right path of God. The scriptures God mentioned in Qur’an are as follows:
- The original Scrolls as revealed to Abraham.
- The original Torah as revealed to Moses.
- The original Psalms as revealed to David.
- The original Injeel (Gospel of Jesus) as revealed to Jesus.
- The Qur’an as revealed to Muhammad (Which is still available in its original form).
Muslims believe that long before the revealtion of the Qur’an to Prophet Muhammad, most of the earlier books and revelations had been either lost or amended by humans.
- A Muslim believes in the Angels of God. They are purely spiritual and splendid begins whose nature requires no food, drink, or sleep. They spend their days and nights in the worship of God. They are honoured servants, assigned certain functions, and they act only by His command.
- A Muslim believes in the day of Judgement. That this world will come to an end some day, and the dead will rise to stand for their final and fair trial. People with good records will be generously rewarded and warmly welcomed to the Heaven of Almighty God, and those with bad records will be punished in Hell.
- A Muslim believes in Fate, whether good or bad, which God has measured and ordained for all creatures. All that God’s knowledge and power are in action at all tines and command over His creation, and that everything He does has a meaningful purpose, even if as humans we fail to understand it fully, or think it is bad.
