God Prescribed Islam
As ‘Deen’ (Way of Life/Religion)
No Other Religion
Will Be Accepted
By Almighty Allah
(By: M. Javed Naseem)
Allah mentions it in the Holy Quran that His true servants are ONE nation (Ummat-an-Wahidah) only. The ‘Deen’ (way of life or religion) is for Allah and there is only one ‘Deen’ (religion) – Islam. Islam was the Deen (religion) of Abraham and all the prophets or messengers of Allah that followed Abraham. Every other religion (with its fancy names) was created by man under the influence of Shaitan (Devil), as a revolt against God’s decree and to suit human behavior. Allah will not accept any other religion from mankind except Islam and He made it very clear in the Quran:
وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ ٱلإِسْلاَمِ دِيناً
فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِى ٱلآخِرَةِ
“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it
will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter
he will be one of the losers.”
The statement is loud and clear. It does not need any further explanation or sophisticated (or confusing) interpretation. It is simple and self-explanatory. This is the religion all believers must adopt and apply to their lives completely.
Islam is a ‘Deen’ – a complete system, a way of life. And it is the only way of life if you are seeking salvation and trying to escape from the Hellfire. And believe me that there are no short-cuts to it. You need to put your trust in Him and do the right/correct things, as per His instructions, and you'll get through. But first give Him His due, and to His creation (human beings) their due. There is no escape.
Allah commands all believers to stay the course (being Muslims):
يٰأَيُّهَا ٱلَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ ٱتَّقُواْ ٱللَّهَ حَقَّ تُقَاتِهِ
وَلاَ تَمُوتُنَّ إِلاَّ وَأَنْتُمْ مُّسْلِمُونَ
“O you who believe! Fear Allah as He should be
feared, and die not except in a state of Islam.”
It’s Islam from the beginning to the end! There is no other ‘Deen’ (or religion) in this world that is ‘valid’ or ‘authentic’ in the eyes of God. Islam is the “Religion of Allah” and that was the religion of all the prophets or messengers. Human beings changed the contents of that religion and named it after the prophets/messengers or other humans.
These changes/modifications were made in every era, thus paving the way for new sects or new religions. It is still happening today and Devil’s Friends are trying their best to change the face of Islam and make it suitable to them (and call it ‘secular’ or moderate).
The best way to revert to Islam is
to revert to the Quran as the Quran
contains true guidance, blessings
and cure of all human ailments.
We cannot claim to be God’s servants or so-called ‘children of God’ and keep disobeying God. His commands are our obligations and we cannot ignore them. Allah says in Surah (chapter) Aal-e-Imran, verse No.83:
أَفَغَيْرَ دِينِ ٱللَّهِ يَبْغُونَ وَلَهُ
أَسْلَمَ مَنْ فِى ٱلسَّمَاوَاتِ وَٱلأَرْضِ
طَوْعاً وَكَرْهاً وَإِلَيْهِ يُرْجَعُونَ
“Do they seek for other than the Religion of Allah?
while all creatures in the heavens and on earth have,
willing or unwilling, bowed to His Will (accepted
Islam), and to Him shall they all be brought back.”
Islam was, still is, and will always be the norm of heavens. That is the only Deen (religion) Allah Himself created and prescribed; and that is the only religion that will be accepted by Him. Nothing else will be accepted. He removes all doubts and tells us clearly in the Holy Quran:
وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ ٱلإِسْلاَمِ دِيناً فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ
وَهُوَ فِى ٱلآخِرَةِ مِنَ ٱلْخَاسِرِينَ
“If anyone desires a religion other than Islam
(submission to Allah), never will it be accepted
of him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks
of those who have lost (all spiritual good).”
Here is another verse from the Holy Quran to support this argument that it was always Islam and it always will be. Anything else is man-made.
إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ ٱللَّهِ ٱلإِسْلاَمُ
“Verily, the religion with Allah is Islam … ”
