- The Islamic system of belief is a set of principles pertaining to the
Creator, to prophecy, and to the unseen, which includes such matters
as the existence of angels, the Resurrection, and the Last Day.
In Islam, worship is understood as any utterance and activity,
whether manifest or hidden, that Allah loves and is pleased with. It
also implies the greatest degree of love and submission
, religious faith is: Belief in a divine being, along with obedience
and worship, in conformity with the sacred texts that define the
attributes of this Being and set down the divine injunctions that
depict how this Being should be worshipped.
The Qur'ân is the name given to Allah's speech that He revealed to
His Servant and Messenger Muhammad (may the peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him); speech that is recited as an act of worship, is
miraculous, and cannot be imitated by man
The Sunnah, according to the scholars of hadîth, is everything that
has been related from the Messenger (may the peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him) from his statements, actions, tacit approvals,
personality, physical description, or biography.
Allah has willed to make the Sharî`ah of Islam (its canonical code of
doctrine and law) the final Sharî`ah for Creation, just as He has
willed to make it the most complete and perfect Sharî`ah.
It was necessary to send Messengers from the human race, so they
would be able to mix with other people, understand them, and relate
to them. If Allah had sent angels, that would not have been possible.
The judicial system in Islam is a system for deciding between people
in litigation with the aim of settling their disputes in accordance
with the injunctions of the Divine Law, injunctions that are taken
from the Qur'ân and Sunnah.
The Islamic economic system is a comprehensive one, since Islam is a
comprehensive way of life that definines how man relates to his Lord
as well as how he interacts with others in society.
