As like to build a strong building we need strong base and pillars, in the same way Islam is based on strong base and pillars. Therefore a good Muslim should not ignore the basic building points of Islam and should try his best to accomplish those.
According to Hazrat Abdullah Bin Umar Razi Allah Tala Anhu; Prophet Muhammad SAW said:
Islam is built upon five:
To worship Allah and to disbelieve in what is worshiped besides him, to establish prayer, to give charity, to perform Hajj pilgrimage to the house, and to fast the month of Ramadan,” (al-Bukhari, Muslim)
Islam is the religion founded by Hazrat Muhammad SAW the Last Messenger of Allah. It means that we have to worship one and only Allah and to believe in the oneness of Allah. The believing in oneness of Allah suppressed us to ask everything that we need from the one and only Allah as Allah SWT is the only sustainer. Allah SWT tells us how to live a successful life by sending His Prophet Muhammad so, that we can look into the life of Hazrat Muhammad and try to spend our life like Him.
Our prophet always taught us the right way to live a successful life. He is the man of truth, people trusted Him and that is why He has won the title of Saadiq O Ameen. If we always tries to speak truth we can serve our nation in better way. Although sometimes speaking truth can becomes very difficult to say but Allah SWT always help the person who regret themselves in telling lie. Due to His exemplary behavior and manners people who lived in squalor loved him dearly.
Our Prophet always helped people, He never judge people by means of their color and cast. He treated everyone same, that what He taught us to be same for everyone, we should help those who are in need. We should not treat people who are deprived.
One of the best and unique habit of Our Prophet is He always used to forgive people. He never ever hurt anyone. Even the animals and other creatures used to share their problems with Him. He is the soulmate of all. There are a lot of stories which tells about the forgiving nature of our beloved Prophet SAW. We should also adopt this forgiving nature of our Prophet Muhammad so that we can live with peace and love. Islam is a religion of love. It always promotes love and no war. We should try to be kind and nice to our friends, family, and relatives.
Prophet Muhammad SAW is the only man in the history of mankind whose life is like an open book for everyone. He lives a successful life. His life showed every chapter of a good living. We can go through about how He spends His life in order to achieve blessings of Allah here and thereafter.
There are various methods to read about Islam and to know about the Islamic knowledge but one of the great and easy methods to achieve the Islamic knowledge is internet. There are several authentic Islamic organizations that has been working day and night to spread the knowledge of Islam by means of internet. Now days it becomes very easy for every Muslim to find out the correct way to solve their living problems according to the sayings of Allah SWT and His Prophet by means of internet.
The reason of darkness, pessimism and depravity in Ummah is that we have abandoned the teachings of Islam. We should revive the teachings of Islam and make them indulge into our kids to make this world a better place for living.
