No God except Allah, Muhammad is Allah's messenger!

Islam is to submit to Allah (God) and to strive energetically in His way and it is some contentment in this lower life, and felicity in the life beyond - which is the Greater Life with Gardens of Paradise, rivers flowing beneath.
There is neither power nor ability save by Allah.

The Islamic tradition is the primordial and eternal message, it is that which is revealed from Allah through His prophets, and handed over by the last Prophet (the blessings and peace of Allah upon him)

The understanding and practice of Islam has to be based on the authentic Islamic tradition , which is - in our time - often not the same as people's customs and assumptions.

{ فَٱسْتَمْسِكْ بِٱلَّذِىٓ أُوحِىَ إِلَيْكَ إِنَّكَ عَلَىٰ صِرَطٍ مُّسْتَقِيمٍٍ }

{Hold fast to what has been revealed to you- you truly are on the right path.}

Quran: Their reckoning has drawn near to men, in heedlessness are they turning aside.

{ اِقْتَرَبَ لِلنَّاسِ حِسَابُهُمْ وَهُمْ فِي غَفْلَةٍ مُعْرِضُونَ }

Sh Mahmoud Khalil Al-Hussary, Sura The Prophets 21-1

Islam, which is submission to the will of God - Allah, is also a worldview, a best practice, the answer sought for – from the super-human or divine level: for normal humanity.


Islam is universal, because it is applicable for all men and women in all times and places and its scripture wields global appeal, having existed at the centre of life for thriving communities across the enormously-diverse Islamic world for many centuries.

It is not a made-up system of human thought, although human thought (intellect عقل) is necessary, and every generation has to rediscover the true prophetic message and to discard what is false: the misrepresentations, lies, and innovations, and the greatest bidʿa/ innovation that is tanfīr, repulsing people with harshness and extremism.
