Those who seek the truth sincerely must believe in Allah and His Last Prophet Muhammad and utter this testimony: I testify that there is no god but Allah, and I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” In Arabic, “ASH-HADU ALLA ILAHA ILLALLAH, WA ASH-HADU ANNA MUHAMMADAN RASULULLAH.”
Prophet Muhammad explained to us the five pillars of Islam: Shahadah (the testimony), Salat (prayer), Zakat (charity), Sawm (fasting), and Hajj (pilgrimage).
Muhammad taught us the six articles of Islam: Belief in Allah (the one true God), His angels, His revelations, His Messengers, the Last Day, and destiny.
Muhammad, Jesus, and Moses used to say ‘Insha Allah’ (if God wills), and using the greeting: ‘Asalamu Alaikum’ ( Peace be upon you)!
When Muhammad entered Makkah, he asked those who rejected him, “What do you think I am going to do with you?” They answered, “You are a generous brother and the son of an honorable brother of ours.” Then, the kind, tolerant, generous and merciful Prophet forgave them, announcing: “No harm will come to you. You may go. You are free.”
When his enemies were persecuting and maltreating Muhammad, trying to kill him, torturing and killing his followers and beloved ones, fighting him and his companions and driving them out of their homes, properties, and land… What was the reaction of Muhammad towards his enemies when he entered Makkah and liberated it from idolatry and paganism? He forgave them!
Practicing what he said and taught Prophet Muhammad forgive his opponents who rejected him and disbelieved in his message
Prophet Muhammad said: “The best of Islam is to behave with gentleness and tolerance.”
