What Are Muslim Beliefs?
How can Muslim beliefs bring you success and prosperity?
That depends on your point of view. Do you measure your prosperity by the amount of money you have?
Or is success based on your perceived status in society?These things definitely hold a lot of weight, but they mean nothing if one isn’t happy and satisfied.
So what do Muslims believe? We believe in one god, one creator of all that exists, all that has existed and all that will exist.
This concept is called Tawheed, or Islamic monotheism. This is central to the entire Muslim religion, and without it, nothing else matters.
We also believe that our Islamic beliefs and religion and way of life was revealed by Allah, God, through His final messenger, Prophet Mohammad Ibn Abdullah.
Believing that Prophet Mohammad is the last messenger of Allah, along with Tawheed, together makes the first of the 5 pillars of Islam. These pillars are the framework of the Islamic religion and must be practiced by all able-bodied Muslims. This will go a long way in bringing a Muslim success and happiness.
While the five pillars make a person a Muslim, it’s the Articles of Faith in Islam that make a Muslim a believer. The six articles of faith are:
- Belief in Allah.
- Belief in the Prophets in Islam.
- Belief in the Books of Allah.
- Belief in the Angels of Allah.
- Belief in Divine Fate and Destiny.
- Belief in the hereafter.
I’ll admit it. There was once a time when I didn’t practice Islam correctly. Muslims are not supposed to speak about their bad deeds, so I won’t go into much detail. But trust me when I say this, I was a very unhappy person during this time.
Fortunately, through the grace of Allah, I learned that true success only comes through Islam. I knew what our Muslim beliefs were, and I knew what was expected of me as a Muslim. Once I began to actually practice Islam, my entire life changed.
Muslim Beliefs Won’t Bring You Wealth or Fortune
No, I did not become wealthy overnight. In fact, I’m really not rich at all. But I have a wonderful Muslim wife, four great kids, and most importantly, I am pretty satisfied and happy with my life. That is what Islam has brought me, and it can do the same for you. Inshallah.
Could things be better? Of course they could be. I’m not saying that practicing Islamic beliefs is going to remove all the worry out of your life. Just like you, I have bills to pay, my kids get sick, and sometimes my wife and I have disagreements. But in Islam, the beliefs we hold help us overcome these obstacles and make us even stronger.
I know you have a lot of questions. What are Muslim beliefs? What makes them so powerful? How can they improve our lives? That’s what we’re going to discover in this site. Inshallah, the answers will help you find true success and prosperity.
