  1. بسم الله and الحمد لله . Let us start with the word ُنَعْبُد, this comes from the root word َعَبَد to worship. A related word is عِبَادَة worship. But what does worship mean? Linguistically the word means ذُلَّة lowness or humbleness. Ibn Jarir says the Arabs would call a road مُعَبَّد flattened which had been squashed flat under the feet of thousands of people. Such a road does not offer any bumps or obstacles to the people walking on it, it has reached the height of surrender and obedience to those who use it. To worship something means to have the greatest submission, fear and respect for that thing. Placing the word إياك before the word نعبد emphasises that our worship in only limited to Allah. Putting all the above together we could understand that إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ means: To You alone, O Allah, we show our greatest respect, humility, submit and obey without any protest just like a flattened road. https://quransteps.wordpress.com/2013/03/11/what-does-إياك-نعبد-mean/
  2. إِنَّ اللَّهَ لَا يَغْفِرُ أَنْ يُشْرَكَ بِهِ وَيَغْفِرُ مَا دُونَ ذَٰلِكَ لِمَنْ يَشَاءُ ۚ وَمَنْ يُشْرِكْ بِاللَّهِ فَقَدِ افْتَرَىٰ إِثْمًا عَظِيمًا Surely Allah does not forgive Shirk( (I.e. directly or indirectly assuming the existence of beings ‘other’ than Allah, whether external objects [apparent] or our own ego [discrete]), and forgives what is besides that to whomsoever He pleases; and whoever associates anything with Allah, he devises indeed a great sin. Surah An-Nisa' (4:48)
  3. Men are the support of women as God gives some more means than others, and because they spend of their wealth (to provide for them). So women who are virtuous are obedient to God and guard the hidden as God has guarded it. As for women you feel are averse, talk to them suasively; then leave them alone in bed (without molesting them) and go to bed with them (when they are willing). If they open out to you, do not seek an excuse for blaming them. Surely God is sublime and great. (4:34)
  4. قُلْ مَنْ رَبُّ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ قُلِ اللَّهُ ۚ قُلْ أَفَاتَّخَذْتُمْ مِنْ دُونِهِ أَوْلِيَاءَ لَا يَمْلِكُونَ لِأَنْفُسِهِمْ نَفْعًا وَلَا ضَرًّا ۚ قُلْ هَلْ يَسْتَوِي الْأَعْمَىٰ وَالْبَصِيرُ أَمْ هَلْ تَسْتَوِي الظُّلُمَاتُ وَالنُّورُ ۗ أَمْ جَعَلُوا لِلَّهِ شُرَكَاءَ خَلَقُوا كَخَلْقِهِ فَتَشَابَهَ الْخَلْقُ عَلَيْهِمْ ۚ قُلِ اللَّهُ خَالِقُ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ وَهُوَ الْوَاحِدُ الْقَهَّارُ Say: Who is the Lord of the heavens and the Earth?-- Say: Allah. Say: Have you taken allies besides Him who do not control any profit or harm for themselves? Say: Are the blind and the seeing alike? Or can the darkness and the light be equal? Or have they set up with Allah associates who have created creation like His, so that what is created became confused to them? Say: Allah is the Creator of all things, and He is the One, the Supreme. Surah Ar-Ra'd (13:16)
  5. Everything in Islam sit well with me. When you understand and are able to act from right action, morality is no longer necessary. It’s instantly obsolete and discarded. Right action has nothing to do with right or wrong, good or evil, naughty or nice. It is without altruism or compassion. Morality is the set of rules and regulations that you use to navigate through life when you’re still trying to steer your ship rather than let it follow the flow.
  6. وَلِلَّهِ يَسْجُدُ مَنْ فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ طَوْعًا وَكَرْهًا وَظِلَالُهُمْ بِالْغُدُوِّ وَالْآصَالِ ۩ And whoever is in the heavens and the Earth makes obeisance to Allah only, willingly and unwillingly, and their shadows (their conceptual existence – for the real and absolute existence is the Names of Allah) too at morn and eve. (This is a verse of prostration.) Surah Ar-Ra'd (13:15)
  7. لَهُ دَعْوَةُ الْحَقِّ ۖ وَالَّذِينَ يَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِهِ لَا يَسْتَجِيبُونَ لَهُمْ بِشَيْءٍ إِلَّا كَبَاسِطِ كَفَّيْهِ إِلَى الْمَاءِ لِيَبْلُغَ فَاهُ وَمَا هُوَ بِبَالِغِهِ ۚ وَمَا دُعَاءُ الْكَافِرِينَ إِلَّا فِي ضَلَالٍ To Him is due the true prayer; Those to whom they turn and from whom they seek help besides Allah give them no answer, but (they are) like one who stretches forth his two hands towards water that it may reach his mouth, but it will not reach it; and the prayer of those who deny is only in error. Surah Ar-Ra'd (13:14)
  8. [59.16] Like the Shaitan when he says to man: Disbelieve, but when he disbelieves, he says: I am surely clear of you; surely I fear Allah, the Lord of the worlds
  9. For ye do worship idols besides Allah , and ye invent falsehood The things that ye worship besides Allah have no power to give you sustenance : then seek ye sustenance from Allah , serve Him , and be grateful to Him : to Him will be your return إنما تعبدون من دون الله أوثانا وتخلقون إفكا إن الذين تعبدون من دون الله لا يملكون لكم رزقا فابتغوا عند الله الرزق واعبدوه واشكروا له إليه ترجعون Qur'an (29:17)
  10. Shirk is.......... the original sin.
  11. And when We raised the mountain above them as if it was a canopy and they thought that it would fall upon them, ( We said), “Hold firmly what We have given you and remember what is in it so that you may fear Allah.” And when your Lord took from the Children of Adam - from their loins - their descendents and made them testify over themselves, “Am I not your Lord?” They said, “Yes, we have testified.” (This) - lest you say on the Day of Resurrection, “Indeed, we were unaware about this.” Or you say, “It was only that our forefathers associated partners (with Allah), and we are their descendants after them. So will You destroy us for what the falsifiers did?” And thus We explain the Verses so that they may return. (sura alaraf :171-174)
  12. A great Urdu/persian poet of Indian subcontinent Mirza Ghalib view about Jannah...... Hum ko maaloom hai jannat ki haqeeqat, lekinDil ko khush rakhne ko Ghaalib yeh khayaal achcha hai.
  13. There is a summit of knowledge, which has been reached by a few lone souls such as the Ibrahim(عليه السلام), Moses(عليه السلام), Isa (عليه السلام) Mohammed (S), Buddha, and few others. This knowledge came to them by the grace of God, revealing the truth that all existence is forever One. This being so, there exists no separate beings such as the Buddha, Jesus, Moses etc., but only the One, knowing Himself in all these various forms. It is, indeed, just this knowledge, which constitutes the message of every seer of Truth: “The One exists as you and me. Realize this Truth; There is but one religion, not many. It is only the childish and the deluded who think otherwise. There is but one substance, which is variously named as “water,” “pani,” “jal,” “agua.” But no matter what it is called, that same substance quenches the thirst of all. " Ask of those who have attained the realization of Allah all speak the same word. All the enlightened have left one message; it is only those in the midst of their journey who hold diverse opinions.” And, of course, the great majority of the world’s people are in the midst of their spiritual journey, and therefore, there are likely to be heard many diverse opinions for many centuries to come.
  14. The Buddha, who lived long before Rasool (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), had a quite different way of talking about the Truth and the path to Its realization. he taught the path of Knowledge, the path of meditation. He, like Rasool (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم), had experienced his identity with the Eternal, and he realized that it is “the belief in a separate “I” that gives rise to all sorrows, binding us as with cords to the world of sorrow.” This “I,” said the Buddha, “does not exist, and the illusion of it conceals what is truly the Permanent Reality."
  15. The essence of Islam is “Surrender to God!” The essence is “Cling to His feet!” Muslim means “Remember Him constantly; lift yourself to Him by the strength of your desire!” How can one express the essence of Islam? It is a state of the Rooh when it’s buoyed up by grace. Islam's essence is intimacy; “Be dissolved in His Bliss!” The offering of one’s heart, mind and body in service of Allah is the essence of Islam; it is the wisdom of love. It is unshaken confidence in the strength of the Rooh: “Identify with Him; be as great and as good!” There is one Life, one Mind, one infinite Ocean of Truth. He is manifest as Rooh, as the sea manifests waves. Islam is the awakening of the wave to its Truth; it is the Rooh’s joyful recognition of its infinite Self. You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you free. Kalma is truth, Kalma is aim, If one understands the meaning of it and accepts it, at that very moment illusion will disappear, he then would become aware of himself.
