CHAPTER 8 FAITH IN HOLY SCRIPTURES
Allah has sent down to a number of Messengers, Books in order to proclaim them to mankind.
These Books contain the Words of Allah.
Among them are the Sheets of Ibrahim (#Abraham), Taurat revealed to #Moosa (Moses), Az-Zabour (psalms) revealed to Dawood (David), The Injil (Gospel) revealed to
Being the last #Book assuredly guarded from corruption, The Qur’an confirms the truth in the previous Books and guards it.
Whatever, in those Books, differs from The Qur’an is corrupted or abrogated.
#Allah (Glory be to Him) says: “To you We sent the scripture in truth Confirming the scriptures that came before it, And guarding it…” [The Qur’an 5:48].
Allah revealed The Qur’an in Arabic and has firmly promised to protect. His last #Message from all corruption; He says about The Qur’an: “We have, without doubt,
sent down the Message, and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption)” [The Qur’an 15:9]
CHAPTER 9 : FAITH IN PROPHETS
We believe that: Allah chose from among mankind some Prophets to deliver His Guidance.
From among those Prophets He selected Some Messengers.
He sent to the Messengers Laws and commanded them to proclaim these laws and to clarify them to their people.
Some of the great Messengers of Allah were Nooh (#Noah), Ibrahim (Abraham), Moosa (Moses), Isa (Jesus), and Muhammad (peace be upon them all).
Embracing Islam does not mean to disbelieve in Moosa, Isa, or any other prophet.
Islam teaches you how to believe correctly in all Prophets.
Allah (Glory be to Him) says in The #Qur’an: “To you We sent the Scripture in Truth, Confirming the scriptures that came before it, And guarding it…” [The Qur’an 5:48].
Meaning: Clarifying the Truth they distorted.
Allah mentioned’ names of a number of Prophets, He says: “Say you (Muslims): We believe in Allah, and the revelation given to us, and to Ibrahim, lsma‘il, Isaac,
Ya‘qoob (Jacob) and the Tribes, and that which was given to Moosa (Moses), and Isa (Jesus), and that which was given to all Prophets from their Lord. We make no
difference between one and another of them, and we submit to Allah (in Islam)” [The Qur‘an 2:136]
The first Prophet was #Adam, father of mankind, Alayhis-Salam (Peace be upon him).
Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam ‘Alayhis-Salatu was-Salamu (Peace be upon him) is the Seal (the last) of the prophets. No prophet is to come after him up to the
end of this world.
Hence the fact that Islam is the only true religion to remain up to the Last Day.
He is Muhammad son of Abdullah son of Abdul-Muttalib. He is an Arab from (the famous tribe) of The Quraysh, a descendant of Ibrahim (Abraham) and Isma‘il
(Ishmael) – Alayhimus-salatu was-salamu – (Peace, and prayers of Allah be upon them).
He was born in Makkah (Mecca) in 571 AD (Known as the Year of the Elephant).
Allah sent Revelation to him when he was 40 years old.
He stayed in #Makkah 13 years calling people to (believe in) Allah.
Only a limited number of people believed in him.
After that he emigrated to Al-Madinah and invited its people to believe in Allah, and they accepted.
He became the leader of Makkah in the year 8 AH He died at the age of 63 after the whole of The Qur’an was revealed, and all Arabs embraced Islam.
