Islam

Islam is the way of the Prophets and the elect of human beings since our father Adam through our father Abraham then Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad, - upon them blessings and peace, consisting in true worship of our Creator and excellent living and dying until we return to Him and enter everlasting life, in which this life forms less than a drop in the ocean; a way the formal description of which is:

[1] Faith in the one God alone without partner, son, or spouse, in the angels, the Divine Books, the Prophets and Messengers, the Day of the Resurrection and Judgment, and the foreordained Divine decree that includes both good and evil, and

[2] Praying the five prayers in their appointed times every 24 hours, remitting the poor-due, fasting the month of Ramadan, and performing, if physically and monetarily able, the pilgrimage to Makka.

A Quote On the Sharia,

the Sacred Law of Islam

The entire sacred law is merciful, so if it goes from mercy to cruely, it is not from the sacred law.

The entire thing is wisdom, so if it goes from wisdom to folly, it is not from the sacred law.

The entire thing is common benefit (maslaha), so if it goes from benefit to harm, it is not from the sacred law.

The entire thing is justice, so if it goes from justice to tyranny or oppression, it is not from the sacred law.

Tawhid

Allah unveils Oneness in this diverse world of multiplicity - through the manifestation of Divine acts and attributes, which are the signs which disclose the Sole Source behind them – for those who reflect.

Tawhid is for us human beings (al-muwahhiddun): making Ultimate Reality one (and It is ONE already), seeing unity in diversity (which is a sign of God), so as to understand the One out of the many.

This by grasping the word of the Lord of the universe in His revelation:
