The Final Message


1) A divinely revealed belief system

" And with truth We have sent it down (the Qur'an), and with truth it has descended. And We have sent you (O Muhammad(pbuh)) as nothing but a bearer of glad tidings and a warner" The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 17, Verse 105


"And truly, this (the Qur'an) is a revelation from the Lord of the Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists), which the trustworthy Ruh (Jibril(Gabriel)) has brought down upon your heart (O Muhammad(pbuh)) that you may be one of the warners, in the plain Arabic lanuguage." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 26, Verses 192-195
2) A belief system centred on the laws of Allah

"Say (O Muhammad(pbuh)): I am only a man like you. It has been revealed to me that your Ilah (God) is One Ilah (God i.e. Allah)" The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 18, Verse 110

"Say (O Muhammad(pbuh)): I possess no power over benefit or hurt to myself excpet as Allah wills. If I had the knowledge of the Ghayb (Unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth, and no evil should have touched me. I am but a waner, and a bringer of glad tidings unot people who believe." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 7, Verse 188
3) An ongoing or eternal miracle

"And they say: Why are not signs sent down to him from his Lord? Say: The signs are only with Allah, and I am only a plain warner. Is it not sufficient for them that We have sent down to you the Book (the Qur'an) which is recited to them? Verily, herein is mercy and a reminder for a people who believe" The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 29, Verses 50-51

"We will show them Our signs in the universe, and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Qur'an) is the truth. Is it not sufficient in regard to your Lord that He is a witness over all things?" The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 41, Verse 53
4) A message which addresses reason

"Verily, in these are Ayat ( prrofs, evidences, signs) for the people who understand." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 13, Verse 4

"Thus do we explain the signs in detail to a people who have sense." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 30, Verse 28

"Say (O Muhammad(pbuh): I exhort you to one thing only, that you stand up for Allah's sake in pairs and singly, and reflect (within yourselves in the life history of the Prophet(pbuh), there is no madness in your companion (Muhammad(pbuh)). He is only a warner to you of a severe torment." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 34, 46
5) A message to all mankind

"O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and mad eyou into nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Verily, the most honourabl of you with Allah is that (believer) who has at-Taqwa ( i.e. he is one of the Muttaqun (the pious)). Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 46, Verse 13

"It (this Qur'an) is only a reminder for all the Alamin (mankind, jinn ad all that exists). And you shall certainly know the truth of it after a while." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 38, Verses 87-88
6) A balance between the spiritual and the material

"But seek, with that (wealth) which Allah has bestowed on you, the home of the Hereafter, and forget not your portion of lawful enjoyment in this world; and do good as Allah has been good to you, and seek not mischief in the land. Verily, Allah loves not the Mufsidun (those who commit great crimes, oppressors, tyrants, mischief makers)." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 28, Verse 77

"Say (O Muhammad(pbuh)): Who has forbidden the adornment with clothes given by Allah, which He has produced for His slaves, and At-Tayyibat ( All kinds of Halal(lawful) things) of food? Say: They are, in the life of this world, for those who believe, (and) exclusively for them (believers) on the Day of Resurrection. Thus We explain the Ayat (Islamic laws) in detail for people who have knowledge." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 7, Verse 32
7) An eternal message for every time and place

"So set you (O Muhammad(pbuh)) your face towards the religion (of pure monotheism). Allah's Fitrah (Islamic Montheism) with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalqillah ( the religion of Allah - Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 30, Verse 30
8) A message protected by the One who revealed it

"Verily, We, it is We Who have sent down the Dhikr (the Qur'an) and surely, We will guard it (from corruption)." The Holy Qur'an, Chapter 15, Verse 9
