The Beauties of Islam


Undoubtedly, Islam is the most perfect religion, the most conformable to pure nature and sound reason. This is due to the characteristics, beauties, merits and benefits it comprises of that have never been found in any other religion before.

“This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you and have approved for you Islam as religion.” [Surah Al-Ma’idah, 5:3]

Islam is the only religion capable of meeting the needs of both the soul and the body simultaneously. It does not view man as a gear in a machine as does communism, nor does it suppress man’s natural needs and bar him from all his desires, as is the case with monasticism, nor invites him to unleash his desires with no limit, as in the case of the materialism of the western civilization.

Islam is the only religion devoid of sophistication and contradictions.

“Then do they not reflect upon the Quran? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction.” [Surah An-Nisa, 4:82]

Islam is the only religion that can solve the most complex human problems. The Islamic creed provides an accurate and clear image of who Allah is and what the universe and the human race are. It introduces a set of rulings that regulate all issues in life, such as worship, economy, politics, transactions, personal affairs and international relationships, etc.

Islam is the only religion that possesses convincing answers to the most bewildering questions, such as: Why was I created? What should I do in life? Where will I go after death?

Islam is fully comprehensive, the fittest and the best religion in terms of creed, morals, acts of worship, transactions, and general and personal rulings. This is due to the fact that it is not a man-made religion, but rather derived from a divine source; Allah; the Exalted, prescribed the rulings of Islam Himself.

“But who is better than Allah in judgement for a people who are certain [in faith].” [Surah Al-Ma’idah, 5:50]

Furthermore, He does not accept from His subjects any religion other than Islam.

“And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.” [Surah Ali ‘Imran, 3:85]

Islam is a complete system of life. Historically speaking, when the Islamic model was applied into the physical life, it gave rise to an exemplary society and a brilliant civilization that comprised of all the elements of advancement. Morality and high ideals were promoted within the society and social justice and human dignity were demonstrated at their finest.
