CHAPTER 1 FAITH (1) The Basics of Islam ﱠنأو ﷲ ّﻻإ َﻪﻟإ ﻻ ْنأ ِةدﺎﻬﺷ : ﺲﻤﺧ ﲆﻋ مﻼﺳﻹا ﻲﻨﺑ ” : (ص) ﺪﻤﺤﻣ لﻮﺳﺮﻟا لﺎﻗ ِ ِ ِ ِ هاور).نرمَِو،او،ةاءإو،ةاِمإو،ُلرًاْ ﱢ  (يرﺎﺨﺒﻟا Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “ Islam is based on five : to testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s apostle, to perform prayer, to pay the obligatory charity, to perform pilgrimage, and to fast Ramadan.” The starting point in Islam is the two testimonies : the Oneness of Allah and the prophethood of Muhammad (PBUH) . Prayer is a daily worship. Obligatory charity, i.e. ,zakata yearly worship ;, is so is fasting the Ramadan month. Pilgrimage is a once-in-life worship.

(2) The Heart ً ِ  ْﺖَﺤﻠ َﺻ اذإ ﺔَﻐ ْﻀُﻣ ﺪﺴﺠﻟا ﰲ ﱠنإو ﻻأ ” :(ص) ﺪﻤﺤﻣ لﻮﺳﺮﻟا لﺎﻗ  “ ﻠﻘﻟا ﻲﻫو ﻻأ ،ﻪﱡ .ُُاَْتاذإو،ُاَ Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “ There is a piece of flesh in the body. If it becomes good, the whole body becomes good, and if it becomes spoilt , the whole body becomes spoilt, and that is the 4 heart.” Islam emphsizes the heart as a symbol of intention . Allah knows what we hide, i.e. , what we intend. One may deceive anyone else, but certainly he cannot decieve Allah , i.e. , God. What counts is not what you reveal, but rather what you conceal. God knows what undeclared intentions we may cover up. (3)  Deeds and Words ﺎﻣ ﻲﺘﻣأ ﻦﻋ ﱄ َزوﺎﺠﺗ ﷲ ﱠنإ ” : (ص) ﺪﻤﺤﻣ لﻮﺳﺮﻟا لﺎﻗ(يراهاور).ْوأُْروْو َ ْ

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said, “ Allah has accepted my invocation to forgive what whispers in the hearts of my nation unless they act or speak .” Allah does not hold you responsible for what you think. You are responsible to Allah for what you actually do or say. This is out of God’s mercy.

His disbelief was when he claimed that I cannot recreate him as he was. His abuse was when he claimed that I have a son, whereas I am too glorified to have a wife or a son .’ ” To re-do something is easier than doing it for the first time. For Allah , to recreate humans
