What Every Muslim Should Know about Islam

Saying of the Prophet (PBUH) is: “He who travels in the search of knowledge, to him God shows the way of Paradise.”

Going into paradise is the fantasy for every Muslim, but everyone wants it in an easy way. God has made our Deen very simple for us to follow. Though we are not fully able to follow it according to what we are asked. The ways are simple and elegant. To consider yourself as a true Muslim one must have enough knowledge about his religion so that he can make his mind up from where to start, how to follow.

Holy Quran is the first step to take a start. But reciting Holy Quran is not enough, you must understand the meaning of every word written there. Most of the Muslims pray five times a day but don’t even know the meaning of what they say while praying. Arabic is a blessed language and we must learn it to understand Quran in the true manner.

Furthermore, it is also advised for a learner to spread his knowledge, “The ink of the scholar is more holy than the blood of the martyr.” We also have to develop a strong faith in God, Prophet Muhammad PBUH and our religion. Plus one must have enough knowledge to answer all the questions raised by the people of other religions. Follow the life style of Prophet Muhammad PBUH is the important part for all the Muslims. Finally, Islam is broad but simple religion to follow but being a Muslim, it’s the responsibility for everyone to study Islam thoroughly.
