What do Muslims Believe

What do Muslims Believe?

What do Muslims Believe? We, the Muslims believe in the Oneness of Allaah (God) in all aspects. What is meant is that there is a clear difference between the Creator and the creation, and that there is nothing whatsoever that can be compared to the Creator.

We believe that He is the Sole Possessor, Creator, Provider, Sustainer, and Maintainer of everything. He is the One who brings life into Read more ...

The Upbringing of Three Daughters

The Question: The Messenger of Allaah (Sallallahu alayhi wassallam) said: "Whoever had three daughters and was patient with them, gave them drink and clothed them then they will be a screen for him from the Fire."
