Islam: The Complete Way of Life
The core message in Islam is that there is only one God (ALLAH) the creator, maintainer & sustainer of everything in the universe, and that prophet Muhammad is his messenger. Every Muslim around the world believes that Allah is one alone:
The Almighty Allah has no sons, parents, partners nor associates.
The Almighty Allah was neither created nor born by anyone; He’s the Almighty.
There are no equal, superior, or lesser Gods.
"˹He is˺ the Originator of the heavens and earth. How could He have children when He has no mate? He created all things and has ˹perfect˺ knowledge of everything. That is Allah - your Lord! There is no God ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him. ˹He is˺ the Creator of all things, so worship Him ˹alone˺. And He is the Maintainer of everything."
Quran: Chapter 6:Verses 101-102
In Islam, we believe that Allah is the absolute one, the all-powerful and the all-knowing ruler of the universe. He is the creator of everything in existence.
Are you wondering whether God (Allah) exists or not?
The question should be instead do we have evidence denying God's existence?
Think about your phone, watch, jacket, or even a simple bottle of water. Did you believe that all these things came into existence out of nowhere or as a result of some random events? Have we ever seen something which came from absolutely nothing?
So what about other things we see that are far more complicated such as small atoms, humans, animals, and all these complicated creatures living around?
The more science evolves the more it reveals about the complexity of the human being; here is a National Geographic video about that:
Human Body 101 | National Geographic
Humans are only a tiny part of a magnificent system, where millions of other species with different designs and complexity, all living in harmony and equilibrium. However, humans are blessed with superior intelligence which grants them the ability to consider the complexity of this whole creation and its purpose.

Looking at the bigger picture, the earth itself is a very tiny part of the universe.... Here is a short video of how the Earth is compared to the rest of the universe
These facts should definitely make us curious about who created all of these and what was the intention behind these creations? We cannot afford to ignore such questions.
"Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use reason"
Quran: Chapter 2:Verse 164
Religion was communicated by Allah to humanity through his prophets ADAM ABRAHAM, ISSAC, JACOB, MOSES, JESUS...and last of all MUHAMMAD peace be upon them all. Those were the best people who lived on earth; they are our role models and were sent to guide us. They were all preaching the same message and that is:
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD AND HE ALONE IS WORTH OF WORSHIP.
Say, ˹O believers,˺ “We believe in Allah and what has been revealed to us; and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and his descendants; and what was given to Moses, Jesus, and other prophets from their Lord. We make no distinction between any of them. And to Allah we all submit."
Quran: Chapter 2:Verse 136
ALLAH SUPPORTED HIS PROPHETS WITH MIRACLES WHICH SERVED AS PROOF THAT THEY WERE HIS MESSENGERS.
We are gifted with our beautiful minds and free will. On judgment day everyone will be rewarded or punished according to his own choices (and the intention of these choices).
Paradise and Hell have different levels; greater deeds will lead to higher levels of Paradise and rewards while more wrong acts lead to lower levels of Hell and harsher punishment.
