What Is Islam?

If you try googling that, this is what you would get.

“The religion of the Muslims, a monotheistic faith regarded as revealed through Muhammad as the Prophet of Allah.”

Islam, is a way of life. It is a guide to all of mankind. It encourages one to give due attention to their relationship with God. Islam teaches that through the doing of good deeds and seeking the pleasure of God, a soul would find peace and happiness.

Islam places great importance in the belief that the soul gives life to a human body. Likewise, in its absence, the human body dies and disintegrates. However, the soul is eternal and will be reunited with the body on the Day of Resurrection, when God will raise everyone to answer for their deeds on earth. Islam encourages the individual to focus on keeping the soul healthy, through the remembrance, obedience and worship of God. There should be a correct balance in strengthening the soul and not over-indulging with the pleasures of the body.

The only reason I typed all of that is because I wanted to present to you some kind of introduction to what Islam is. This is not a blog where I’m going to preach my faith. I am still in the process of understanding and learning about Islam as well so who am I to preach it? Why I brought up Islam is because I am a Muslim, I’m proud to be a Muslim, and it’s sad how many people have so many misconceptions about the religion and how many people hate Muslims. Racism is an issue I’ll be talking about later on. I can relate to it personally, so I think it’ll be an interesting topic.

Anyway, getting back on track. This category on my blog is for anyone out there who’s interested in learning about Islam and the struggle of Muslims in today’s world. The sub categories of Islam would be directed towards Muslims (especially my fellow Muslim sisters). You’ll find out more about this as we go. Happy reading!

With Love.

  3. One thing those on the receiving end of racism tend to forget when they are the ones experiencing it is that it is a 2-way street. Nobody talks about the silent recipients who don’t speak out because it’s socially unacceptable to point the racism finger at those who traditionally are the victims….
