5 Things Islam Teaches Us

Islam is the last religion that was emerged among all the religions. ‘The Holy Book Quran’ is the holy book of Islam which depicts the perception of the Islam. Moreover, a Sunnah is the regulations or we’d rather say a norms or guideline for a better and peaceful living presented by the Prophet Muhammed (SAW). They are available in the form of Hadiths (Advises). Another thing called ‘Sharia’ is the governing rules and regulation for different aspect of human life and society.

There are many points which can be implemented to upgrade the lives of mankind. So, here we present 5 good points to learn from Islam.

1. Monotheism

It means one god belief. It’s a way end disputed regarding everyone’s personal God concepts. This is one of the main aspects of Islam.

2. Education

There is an advice from Prophet Muhammed (SAW), regarding education, it was “For knowledge, go to China if necessary”. China was believed to be most difficult route in those ancient times because of lack of transportation.

3. Business

Our prophet’s advice is to be strictly honest in merchandising, pricing and avoiding any kind of monopoly or black marketing and not to earn more than your necessity or to hoard the goods.

4. Social responsibility

Just like the government collects the taxes from the people, people who follow Islam should volunteer a tax system in the form of Zakat for the poor and needy. A certain portion of the amount you earn is should be necessarily dedicated to those in need. This is not Hadith really but is one of the five compulsory aspects of Islam.

5. Cleanliness

Prophet Muhammed (SAW) also advised to maintain cleanliness even in the dirtiest places of the house like washrooms. He even advised to bath with minimum amount of water as it is the most essential factor for human life and should not be wasted.

Side note: ‘SAW’ written after Muhammed are actually initials of the full name of the prophet which has to pronounced out of respect. ‘SAW’ stands for ‘Swallah Alaihi Wassalum’

Some beautiful quotes said by Prophet Muhammad

  • Kindness is a mark of faith, and whoever is not kind has no faith.
  • The ink of the scholar is more sacred than the blood of the martyr.
  • To overcome evil with good is good, to resist evil by evil is evil.
  • None of you truly believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.
  • Four things support the world: the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the good, and the valor of the brave
