What is the Islamic civilization ? What are the most distinctive features of the Islamic civilization in comparison to other civilizations? How could the Islamic civilization embrace the different cultures and diverse languages? How could it form all of that into one entity? How could Muslims with their newborn civilization spread sciences, knowledge, sophistication and development in the east and west?
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.
Muslims follow the commandments that Muhammad, Jesus, and Moses taught and did, like believing in one God, praying, fasting, and giving charity.
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.”
