Call to islm part 6

Asalam wa alikum


(6) ALLAH

Allah, the most exalted, commands us to believe in Him, in his prophets, in the Day of Judgment, in his
scriptures, in his angels, and in predestination whether or not it goes in our favour. Allah commands and
leads us to the right way in this life and that is the way of Islam and belief in the Holy Quran and in the
apostle sent to the last generation of mankind, who is also the seal of all prophets. His name is (Ahmad)
and (Muhammad), and Allah has informed about him in the Torah as disclosed in His statement in the
Holy Book: And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: "O Children of Israel! I am the apostle of Allah
(sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to
come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad... (Q61:6). In Torah, which was revealed before the Quran,
Allah had foretold the Israelites of the advent of a prophet who will succeed Jesus and whose name shall
be Muhammad and (Ahmad), and that they must have faith in him, believe and follow him. Therefore,
there is no deity worthy of worship besides Allah, the All-knowing and Wise, who informed of a prophet
that was yet unborn and even before he was sent. His name was disclosed to the Israelites. Prophet Isa
actually informed them about him saying: "O Children of Israel! I am the apostle of Allah (sent) to you,
confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me,
whose name shall be Ahmad... (Q61:6). Prophet Isa (May peace and blessings of Allah be upon him)
had also informed of a prophet that was expected and in whom they must believe by the name
Muhammad. Allah therefore commands us to believe in the Prophet Muhammad and every Jew or
Christian who has faith in God is also required to believe in Muhammad by testifying that there is no
deity worthy of worship besides Allah; that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah; that Isa is the servant
and messenger of Allah. He must also testify that all messengers of Allah were sent down with truth to
guide people to the true worship of Allah. It means that all the prophets came with one objective which is
to instruct people to worship Allah alone without associating partners in his worship, while at the same
time deserting the worship of anything beside Allah. Humankind is therefore required to believe in all the
prophets starting from the first to the last of them who is Muhammad (May the peace and blessings of
Allah be upon him). Everybody must therefore testify and proclaim these great declarations with which
they will be saved from hell-fire after death. I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship besides Allah and that Muhammad is the messenger of
Allah.
