What Are The Basic Beliefs of Islam?

  Anonymous       Sunday, May 30, 2021

Islam's fundamental teachings are based on the concept that this life is not the end of the road. Is it just the case that some people are born to enjoy their health, favorable circumstances or money, while others are born to suffer from their stolidity or poverty? 

Is it possible that some of them become victims of others who may or may not be punished in this life? Does this imply that some of them can enjoy their good fortune while others must toil with their terrible fortune until the end of their lives? Where is justice if this is what life is like? As a result, eternal existence is required, in which the last account is rendered and infinite justice is fulfilled.

6 Key Beliefs of Islam: 

  1. Belief in Allah as the one and only God. Monotheism(Tawheed)
  2. Belief in angels.
  3. Belief in the holy books.
  4. Belief in the Prophets... e.g. Adam, Ibrahim (Abraham), Musa (Moses), Dawud (David), Isa (Jesus). ...
  5. Belief in the Day of Judgement... ...
  6. Belief in Predestination...

All Divine messages share the same fundamental beliefs. 

These include, according to the Islamic version, believing in a single Creator for the entire cosmos, His angels, His books, and His prophets. 

(1) In Arabic, the word "Allah" is the only term for God that does not have a plural form. 

(2) Holy Quran 21:107. messengers, the Day of Resurrection, and the pre-recording of the universe's events: good and bad. 

(1) The belief in one God, Allah, and that He alone is to be adored is the cornerstone of the beliefs. Allah forbids that partners be formed with Him, according to the Holy Quraan. He, on the other hand, forgives anything He wants to whom He wants.

The principal worship rites are to do the required prayers, pay the necessary charity (zakaah), fast throughout the month of Ramadan, and perform pilgrimage for those who can afford it, in addition to giving witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah's messenger. 

These worship rites are intertwined with the normal Muslim's day-to-day activities. The five-time daily prayers, for example, must be completed within certain time frames and include cleansing the exposed areas of one's body as a requirement to completing the ritual prayer.

All of these serve to remind a Muslim of the need of managing one's time, maintaining cleanliness, order, and concentration while working, as well as remembering one's obligation to Allah. Paying alms and fasting remind a Muslim of his responsibilities to his fellow man, while practising pilgrimage at a certain location and time stimulates communication and cooperation between Muslims from all over the world. 

Some aspects of the rituals appear to be identical to those used to worship idols, such as facing the Ka'abah in Mecca during prayer and circumambulating it as a pilgrimage requirement. 

However, there is a significant distinction between rituals that are performed and rituals that are performed.

1. Islamic rites, which appear nonsensical at first glance, are direct mandates from God, and following them entails entire submission to Him.
2. Human-created rituals are regarded deviations from the original teachings, regardless of how rational or illogical they look. 

It's worth noting that the fundamental beliefs aren't subject to any change. In a limited sense, the rituals are affected by changes in lifestyle or means. For example, the traveller may make two bowings in the ceremonial prayer instead of four, and may postpone his or her fast while travelling, or the sick may postpone or cancel their fast. However, they are required to compensate for these loss by fasting after Ramadan.

The continual changes in life styles and means have a greater impact on the Shari'ah (law) that regulates people's relationships. Despite the fact that Islamic law is still effective after fourteen centuries.
