I would like to post videos by Muslims on different topics regarding our beloved faith. Topics will range from comparative religion, manners, convert stories, the unseen, stories about the Prophets and other interesting topics. Feel free to peruse and get a new perspective. Hope you see it as a type of video library. As such, I will continue uploading daily and you can zip by and look at the video that interests you. Enjoy! Peace!
(Only, brothers and sisters in Islam are welcome to post resources in this thread.)
Islamic monotheism in a nutshell:
"Islam is not a new religion, rather it is the continuation of the same Truth that God revealed to all of His prophets starting from Adam and culminating with Muhammad (peace be upon all of them), to the entire mankind.
One God: Accepting the absolute unity of Allah (God) is the most important article of faith for a Muslim (one who follows Islam). Monotheism is a theme that is frequently emphasized in the Holy Qur’an - the scripture that Muslims believe was revealed by the Lord to Prophet Muhammad - and the famous sentence that states: There is no creature or deity worthy of worship except Allah is the foundation stone of Islam.
Some of the attributes of God that are mentioned in the Qur’an which serve to provide a better understanding of our relationship with the Almighty are: The Merciful, The Generous, The Just, The Forgiving, The Master, The Wise, The All-Knowing, The All-Hearing, The All-Seeing, The All-Powerful, The Peaceful, among many others.
The Qur’an introduces Allah in the following way:
“Say: He, Allah is One, Allah the Eternal. He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is nothing that is equal to Him.” (al-Qur’an, Chapter 112, Verses 1-4)
In another chapter of the Qur’an, God describes himself as such:
“He is Allah besides Whom there is no god; the Knower of the unseen and the seen; He is the Beneficent, the Merciful. He is Allah, besides Whom there is no god; the King, the Holy, the Giver of Peace, the Granter of Security, Guardian over all, the Mighty, the Supreme, the Possessor of every greatness.” (al-Qur’an, Chapter 49, Verse 22-23)
Prophethood: Muslims believe that out of His loving care for humanity, Allah sent Prophets to guide mankind. This golden chain of divinely appointed individuals began with Adam, who was the first Prophet, as well as the first human being; and ended with Muhammad, the last Messenger."
Sahih International: We have certainly sent down distinct verses. And Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path.
The following video is from a series about all the Prophets peace be upon them, feel free to check out their stories. They are our examples in conduct and in Islam and we bring forth their good and moral stories.
