Why Islam is right religion

Why I think Islam is the right religion.

By Abdullahi Zakari Aliyu mantafien.

Before my proof, let me address some important aspects of creation of man. From the beginning of the creation, When God the Almighty, intended to create a man, God Almighty call his angels and said to them: "I'm about to create a human on earth." And this is mentioned in the Qur'an 2:30

And when thy Lord said unto the angels: "Lo! I am about to place a viceroy in the earth," they said: "Wilt thou place therein one who will do harm therein and will shed blood, while we, we hymn Thy praise and sanctify Thee?" He said: "Surely I know that which ye know not."

Allah the most high said:
After the creation of Adam, "Allah the most high created some items useful for man and He calls all the angels to come and tell him the names of the items. Allah said to the angels, "Inform Me of the names of these, if ye are truthful."
 See Qur'an 2:31

The angels reply:
They said: "Be glorified! We have no knowledge saying that which Thou hast taught us." "Lo! Thou, only Thou, art the Knower, the Wise."

When the angel failed to mention the names of the items Allah said to Adam:
"He said: O Adam! Inform them of their names, and when he had informed them of their names, He said: "Did I not tell you that I know the secret of the heavens and the earth?" "And I know that which ye disclose and which ye hide." (See Qur'an 2::30

Then Allah the most high orders the angel to postrate to Adam. He said: "And when We said unto the angels:" Prostrate yourselves before Adam, And they prostrate(d), all except  Iblis. He demurred through pride, and so became a disbeliever.
See Qur'an 2:35.

The above verse shows us that all the angels prostrated to Adam except Iblis (Satan). I can say that this is where the problem had started. He refused to postrate to Adam because he felt that he is superior to  Adam and this is mentioned in Qur'an where Allah asked the Iblis ( Satan) for not prostrating to Adam and he replied.

Allah said in Qur'an 7:12, "What hindered thee that thou didst not fall prostrate when I baded thee? (Iblis) said: "I am better than him." "Thou createdst me of fire while him Thou didst create of mud."

Then Allah said: "Then go down hence! It is not for thee to show pride here, so go forth! Lo! thou art of those degraded."
See Qur'an 7:13

The above verse explained how Allah sent away the Satan in His Kindom and before he left the Satan asked Him for one favour which God granted him and Qur'an made mention of it.

Qur'an said, "He said: (Satan) Reprieve me till the day when they are raised (from the dead)."
See Qur'an 7:14

When Allah granted him his prayer and he then said,
He said: Now, because Thou hast sent me astray, verily I shall lurk in ambush for them on Thy Right Path."
"Then I shall come upon them from before them and from behind them and from their right hands and from their left hands, and Thou wilt not find most of them beholden (unto Thee)."
See Qur'an 7:17

The devil promised to lead man astray. He said, "he will make sure man did not obey his Creator.

Allah the most high replied him.
He said: "Go forth from hence, degraded, banished. As for such of them as follow thee, surely I will fill hell with all of you."
See Qur'an 7:18

The above verse explained how Allah the most high expelled the devil from his kindom and told him anyone who follows him shall be cast in the hell fire.

Then Allah told Adam and his wife to enter heaven  and he gave him rules and regulation that they should not eat one certain fruit.

Allah the most high said in the Qur'an See Qur'an 7:19
"And (unto man): "O Adam! Dwell thou and thy wife in the Garden and eat from whence ye will, but come not near this tree lest ye become wrong-doers."

Adam and Eve (Hauwa'u) were in heaven when the devil came to them and told them they should eat the fruit that God prohibited them not to. He told them that If they eat the fruit they will not die, they will remain here for ever and ever and he swore to them that he is serious about it.

And Qur'an made mention of what happened. Allah said:
"Then Satan whispered to them that he might manifest unto them that which was hidden from them of their shame, and he said: "Your Lord forbade you from this tree only lest ye should become angels or become of the immortals."
See Qur'an 7:20

Then they eat the fruit which Allah forbide for them and immediately shame over took them and they started regretting of what they did. And they began hiding their faces.

Allah the most High said"
(Thu did he lead them on with guile.) And when they tasted of the tree their shame was manifest to them and they began to hide (by heaping) on themselves some of the leaves of the Garden. And their Lord called them, (saying): Did I not forbid you from that tree and tell you: Lo! Satan is an open enemy to you?"
See Qur'an 7:22

When Allah the most High asked them a question which they did not have any excuse to present they said:
"They said: Our Lord! We have wronged ourselves. If thou forgive us not and have not mercy on us, surely we are of the lost!
See Qur'an 7:23

Then Allah the most High ordered them to go out from heaven and sent them down to earth.  Allah the most High said in the Qur'an 2: 38. Allah said:
"But Satan caused them to deflect therefrom and expelled them from the (happy) state in which they were; and We said: Fall down, one of you a foe unto the other! There shall be for you on earth a habitation and provision for a time."
This is the end of man's life in heaven.

When the both arrived on earth they realized their mistakes and they asked for God forgiveness and God forgave them.

Prophet Adam started preaching to his families commanding them what is right and forbidden them what is wrong. The only religion that existed at that time was Religion of Islam. Islam is the first religion on earth. You may ask what is Islam?
Islam is an Arabic word derived from the word "Salam" which means Peace. Technically Islam means to submit your self to the commandment of Allah the Almighty.

All this period their is no any other religion than religion of Islam till the period of prophet Nuh which people started associating partner with Allah.

What had happened is, when devil sees that Allah is worshipped for 1,000 years he was angry about it and he comes up with something that will deviate man from worshiping Allah the Almighty.

The devil came up with new idea in the world and told the people of that time that they should have statue of pious people that have passed away so that if anyone of them sees it, it will remember them the good of those people. And they too will do good. So, the people of that time see it as good idea and indeed, it was good but the devil had something to achieved by this, in the next generation. Devil was patient in those period when he saw people did good as he told them.

Those  pious people were SUWA'A, YAGUSTH YAOOK and NASRA. You can found these people names even in the Qur'an see Qur'an 71:23
And they have said: Forsake not your gods. Forsake not Wadd, nor Suwa', nor Yaghuth and Ya'uq and Nasr.

The statue of these people were created with the aims to remember their good deeds and he did remember them.

After the generation of these people. The generation that came after them forgot what the stutue is meant for and the devil came to them to tell them that those statues were created for them to worshipped by their great grandfathers and that is the religion of their great grandfathers. That is the beginning of idolatry on earth.

These people started worshiping these idols as they were told that it is the religion of their forefathers. It's at this junction, Allah the Almighty sees man being astrayed and wished to send revolution on earth by sending the first messager of His, Prophet Nur, may peace be upon him to earth to warned the people of the earth that this is not what you are created for.

Allah the Almighty said in Q11:25
And We sent Noah unto his folk (and he said): Lo! I am a plain warner unto you.

The Qur'an tells us how prophet Noah warned this people about associating partner with Allah and told them to repent and worship Allah alone.
You can read the remaining story in the Qur'an same chapter.

Islam and Christianity are one religion.
Take a look of both religion Islam and Christianity as they originated right from the beginning of creation of  man and you will find out that the story is the same (They teach the same thing) till the period of prophet Muhammad may Allah blessing be with him that Christians come to disbelief in him because he is not from among them.

All prophet of God in the Christianity are the same people in the religion of Islam. Muslims believed with them and respect them. No Muslim is a Muslim if he disbelieves in one of the Prophets of God. See Qur'an 2:132.

The different between Christianity and Islam is one thing, which is believing in prophet Muhammad may Allah blessing be with him that he is a messenger and disregard the believe of Trinity or believing that Jesus is God or the son of God and so on.

The prophet of Islam was sent to all mankind while Jesus is only sent to a particular tribe or area which is Israelite. And this was mentioned in the Qur'an. See Qur'an 61:6

And when Jesus, the son of Mary said: O Children of Israel! Lo! I am the messenger of Allah unto you, confirming that which was (revealed) before me in the Torah, and bringing good tidings of a messenger who cometh after me, whose name is the Praised One. Yet when he haths comes unto them with clear proofs, they said: "This is mere magic."

Jesus was telling his people about Prophet of Islam which is to come after him but when he comes, they reject him and follow their way of fancies.

Allah the most High tells Prophet Muhammad to warn Christian about the Trinity. See Qur'an 4-171
Where Allah subhanna lahu Wataallah said O People of the Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter (aught) concerning Allah except the truth. The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of Allah, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His messengers, and (say not "Three") - Cease! (it is) better for you! - Allah is only One Allah. (Far is it remove from His Transcendent Majesty) that He should have a son. His is all that is in the heavens and all that is on the earth. And Allah is Sufficient as Defender.

Also see Qur'an 19:88-93 where God Almigty said And they said: "The Beneficent hath taken unto Himself a son." "Assuredly ye utters a disastrous thing" Whereby almost the heavens are torn, and the earth is split asunder and the mountains fall in ruins,
That ye ascribes unto the Beneficent a son, When it is not meet for (the Majesty of) the Beneficent that He should choose a son. There is none in the heavens and on the earth but cometh unto the Beneficent as a slave. Verily He knoweths them and numbereths them with (right) numbering. And each one of them will come unto Him on the Day of Resurrection, alone.

This is very clear and Allah the Almighty said there is no doubt in the Qur'an.
Allah the Almighty challenges the disbelievers about the authenticity of the Qur'an, if they think Qur'an is not from the Almighty then they should come with something similar to Qur'an or they should compile a book equivalent to Qur'an which they failed. See Quran 2:23.

Allah the most High said in Qur'an 3:19 The only religion before Him is Islam. Allah said:
Lo! Religion with Allah (is) the Surrender (to His Will and Guidance). Those who (formerly) received the Scripture (differed) only after knowledge came unto them, through transgression among themselves. Whosoever disbelieveth the revelations of Allah (will find that) lo! Allah is swift at reckoning.

Allah the Almighty said in Qur'an 3:85 "And whosoever seekeths another religion other than the Surrender (to Allah) it will not be accepted from him, and he will be a loser in the Hereafter."

With these proof, I say Islam is the right way.

May Allah subhanna lahu wataalah guide us to the straight path and grant us Good in this world and as well as in the hereafter. Ameen
