“Say, [O believers], “We have believed in Allah and what has been revealed to us and what has been revealed to Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the Descendants and what was given to Moses and Jesus and what was given to the prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, and we are Muslims [in submission] to Him.”[Quran 2:136]
‘Islam’ was founded over 1400 years ago with the revelation of the ‘Quran’, believed by Muslims to be the final scripture sent by God to all humanity through His Messenger, Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, peace be upon him.
It is a guidance for success in this life and the Hereafter, calling every human being to reflect on the reality of life and re-awaken our natural capacity to know spiritual truths about our Creator, surrender to His will and seek mercy for ourselves and others, saving us from the consequences of the evils we commit. Those who surrender to God are promised eternal paradise, uniting with loved ones, enjoying unimaginable pleasures and, above all, seeing and being in the indescribable presence of God almighty.
The Quran also serves as a clear warning to those who knowingly reject God’s guidance, transgressing against themselves and others, that Hellfire is prepared as a punishment for the wrongdoers; A most terrible fate in which we must seek refuge from.
