Muslims believe in One, Unique, Incomparable God; in the Angels created by Him; in the prophets through whom His revelations were brought to mankind; in the Day of Judgement and individual accountability for actions; in God’s complete authority over human destiny and in life after death.
Muslims believe in a chain of prophets starting with Adam and including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Elias, Jonah, and Jesus peace be upon them.
But God’s final message to man, a reconfirmation of the eternal message and a summing-up of all that has gone before was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad through Gabriel.
Do you know as a Muslim that you have understood what is the pillar of faith and Islam? As Muslims, it is certainly important to know what exactly is the understanding of the pillars of faith and the pillars of Islam in order to take lessons from it. At least there are some points that need to be understood because it acts as one of the pillars of sharia.
What is the first belief a Muslims should have?
Everyone who pledges the two sentences of the creed “asyhadu an lâ ilâha illallâh wa asyhadu anna muhammadan rasûlullâh” becomes a Muslim and Muslim law applies to him: his body becomes holy as well as his children, and his marriage and muamalah with Muslims may be for him.
Consequently, he must practice religious obligations such as performing prayers, fasting, giving up zakat, performing hajj, believing in the supernatural, believing in angels, the day of resurrection.
Everyone who has spoken the shahada is a Muslim. And it would not be perfect for their faith in Islam if they did not carry out what Allah had commanded in the Qur’an and what the Prophet Muhammad commanded in his sunnah.
The word “islâm” lexically means surrender (taslîm) and obedient. Technically it means the religion that has been conveyed by the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from Allah as the last divine shari’ah, which is comprehensive, universal and eternal (will not be disallowed or uprooted until the apocalypse).
