The Concept Of Islam CSS
The term Islam is derived from Arabic word ‘sal’m’ which literally means peace. In religious context it means “Submission to the will of God.” According to Professor Khurshed Ahmad, Islam means peace achieved by submitting to the will of Allah Almighty.
Islam unlike other religions does not deal only with worship and prayers. It instead is a complete code of life. It guides human beings both in their individual and social life spheres. Islam aims at bringing human beings close to their true God. Its objective is to shape the life of every individual human being according to the teachings of Holy Quran and Sunnah.
Islam also wants to spread the word of Allah Almighty to every corner of the world. It is the duty of every Muslim to bring this religion, Islam into the attention of every Non Muslim. Every person should know about it. Islam has then left it to the will of every Non Muslim either to embrace it or negate it. Like the Holy Quran says
“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers.” – Surah Al Imran (Ayat 85)
Being the true religion of God, the welfare of all human beings lie in following Islam. In its true essence Islam wants to impose only the sovereignty of Allah Almighty on the surface of earth. People should behave according to His will and do not exceeds limits fixed by Him.
Whereas scientific evolution has bought major changes in human life it also has affected the religious beliefs of majority of people in the world. Today every person is facing a clash between science and religious beliefs in his/her life. In such a case only Islam is the answer. It has answer to every problem and confusion of human life.
