Religion of Al-Islam
This beautiful Religion of Al-Islam is the most precious thing in our lives.As a result, Allah The Most High informed us in the Quran and the Sunnah that we will have enemies
(ourselves, Shaitan,others) and that the only way to protect our Deen is to turn to Allah alone and hold fast to the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Salla Allahu Alihy wa Sallam.
The Prophet Salla Allahu Alihy wa Sallam said in his farewell sermon: “I am leaving behind among you something which, if you adhere to it, you will not go astray after that. It is the Book of Allah and my Sunnah.” (Maalik and AlHaakim)
Allah The Most High says in the Quran “And from those who say, “We are Christians” We took their covenant; but they forgot a portion of that of which they were reminded. So We caused among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. And Allah is going to inform them about what they used to do. (5:14).
The only way, that we can be successful in this life and in the Hereafter is to follow the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet Salla Allahu Alihy wa Sallam in the same way and understanding of the Companions of the Prophet and the early generations of Islam as the above hadeeth states. In every specific thing that we have to deal with, we need the understanding of the early generations of Al-Islam. This is the true knowledge and any deficiency in applying that, then it is animosity and hatred that would spread.
Once there is a dispute we should refer it back to Allah and His Messenger. Allah The Most High says in the Quran: “O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you. And if you disagree over anything, refer it to Allah and the Messenger, if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. That is the best [way] and best in result.” (4:59).
We need to be humble to the knowledge of the Deen, because it is the best knowledge since it is the interpretation of the words of The Most High…Allah. And the Most beloved human being…Prophet Muhammad Salla Allahu Alihy wa Sallam
