    Allah and the Qur'anAll of Allah’s words, which the Angel Gabriel brought to the Prophet Muhammad, are written down in a book. This book is called the Quran. In the Quran, we can read all that Allah says to us and to all mankind.

    In the Quran, we can find stories of many other prophets, for Allah always sent prophets to mankind so that they would worship Him alone and do good. That is why there were many prophets before Muhammad.

    We can also find many other things in the Quran. All that we as Muslims believe, and should do, is written there. when we know what is written in the Quran and follow it, we become good Muslims.

    All that we know about Allah is what He Himself has told us. Allah told the Angel Gabriel to speak to Muhammad, and Muhammad told the people what the Angel Gabriel had said to him.

    Allah is the only God. There is no god apart from Allah. That means, only Allah could have made mankind and the earth, moon, sun and stars. Allah is the only One who created all these.

    Of course, you know that many things on earth just work by themselves. For example, when you put seeds in the earth and wait a few months, plants will grow out of them. To put the seeds in the earth is easy, but there is an important question you must ask yourself: Where do we get the earth and from where do we take the seeds? You may say that the seeds can be taken from other plants, and you would be right. But just think: those other plants also need earth to grow in, so where does the earth come from?

    Earth is made out of fine particles of sand, minerals, salts and other materials. Where can we obtain the sand and other things from? Plants also need water to grow, so where does it come from? The plants need sunshine in order to shoot out from the ground. Where do we get sunshine from? We also need the day and night so that we can count how many days it takes for the plants to grow.

    As we have already said, it is easy to put the seeds in the earth and wait till the plants grow out of it, but nobody can make all the things that are needed to make it work. No man can make earth and air, light and water, or the day and the night. It is exactly the same with all other things.

    For instance, man can build houses. He needs stones to do this, but he cannot make the stones himself. Man can also build cars and aeroplanes. To do this he also needs, among other things, iron and rubber. Again, he cannot make iron and rubber himself. Iron can be found in some rocks, and when these rocks are made hot, the iron turns to fluid and flows out of them. Rubber can be found in certain trees. When the bark of these trees is cut, liquid rubber juice flows out. But the rocks in which the iron is found and the trees from which rubber flows were not made by man. Despite all his cleverness and skill, man is not able to do these things. This means that when man makes cars or aeroplanes or manufactures anything else, he is using materials which are already there on earth. Had they not been there ready to be used, man could not have made those cars, aeroplanes and other things. Everything man uses to make something has been created by Allah. Allah has made all these things which man needs so that people are able to live, build houses, plant crops and rear animals for food and clothing and even make cars and aeroplanes. Without Allah, man would not be able to do anything, for the simple reason that but for the will of Allah, man would not exist. It is Allah Who has created the earth, air, sun, water and the many other things which man needs in order to live. Without these, man cannot live and that means man could not exist on earth. It is Allah Who created man and He Who keeps him alive. Everything is from Allah. That is why we say: There is no god apart from Allah.

    It is Allah Who has created everything. Allah has also told man what he should do, because that is good for him. Allah sent prophets to speak to man. Man should always think of Allah and be grateful to Him, and obey the commands he has given through His prophets.

    Prophet Adam
    (Alaihis-Salaam)



    Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) was the first man created by Allah. He was put to live in paradise. However, Iblees did not like this. Although Iblees was made of fire, he lived with the angels. He thought he was better than Adam, so he became Adam’s enemy and decided to make Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) disobey Allah.

    Allah the Exalted created Hawwā' (Eve) to be the wife of Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) and to share him the life in paradise, where they were put by Allah. Paradise was the most beautiful place you can imagine. It was neither hot nor cold. Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) and his wife Hawwā' were never hungry or thirsty, as Allah the Exalted told them to eat of whatever they desire in the garden, except for one certain tree. He also warns them of the lure of Iblees, and that they should not follow him as he is their enemy. This was another thing which Iblees did not like.

    So Iblees came to Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) and his wife and told them to eat from that tree. Now, Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) and his wife knew very well that Allah had told them they must not even go near that tree. So, they did not listen to Iblees, but Iblees kept on and on at them. He tempted them by saying that they could live for ever if they ate from that tree and would become like angels.

    At last, worn down by the nagging of Iblees, Adam's (Alaihis-Salaam) wife gave in. She came to believe what Iblees was telling them, and adorned the matter to Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) untill they both ate from the tree, against Allah’s command. But they soon came to regret very much their disobedience and their weakness in listening to Iblees. Adam and his wife were very sad. Allah-the Most High-Punished them and Iblees as well, and expelled them out of paradise and downed them to the earth. Allah says:



    "We said: "Get you down, all, with enmity between yourselves. On earth will be a dwelling place for you and an enjoyment for a time." (Al-Baqarah 2:36).



    Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) and Hawwā' repented and asked Allah for His forgiveness. Allah forgave them, for He is the Forgiver. He said: "Then Adam received from his Lord Words. And his Lord pardoned him (accepted his repentance). Verily, He is the One Who forgives (accepts repentance), the Most Merciful." (Al-Baqarah 2:37)

    Allah then told Adam and his wife that they must continue to live on the earth for some time. He also told them that whenever there comes to them Guidance from Him and whoever follows His Guidance, there shall be no fear on them, nor shall they grieve. He promised that they would be allowed to return to paradise as long as they and their children were obedient to Him in future.

    Allah also told Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) that he would be Allah’s first prophet. Many prophets would be sent to mankind, and if man listens to the prophets’ words, he will come into paradise when he dies. But if he does not listen, then he will go to hell and remain there with the evil Iblees.

    So, Adam (Alaihis-Salaam) and his wife came down to earth. On earth, they raised their children, and their children in their turn raised their children. In this way succeeding generations of mankind lived on earth and Allah sent His prophets to all of them. These prophets said: Worship only Allah. Allah has created you. Allah has made for you the plants and the animals so that you can eat them. Be grateful to Allah and always do good.

    This is what Adam (Alaihis-Salaam), the first prophet of Allah, told his children. After him there came many other prophets, and Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the last of the prophets.

    AL-IKHLAS

    Bismi-llahi-r-rahmani-r-rahim

    Qul huwa llahu ahad

    Allahus samad

    Lam yalid wa lam yulad wa lam yakul-lahu

    Kufuwan ahad



    AL-IKHAS

    In the Name of Allah, the Merciful, the Mercy-giving.

    Say: He is Allah, the One

    Allah, on whom all ever depend

    He does not beget nor was he begotten

    And none is like Him.

    Prophet Nooh

    (Alaihissalaam)




    Nooh (Alaihissalaam) was a prophet who lived many years after Adam (Alaihissalaam). The people with whom Nooh (Alaihissalaam) lived refused to listen to him. When he said that they should worship only Allah (subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa) and do good, they paid no attention. Nooh (Alaihissalaam) told them they would be severely punished for ignoring him and the message he brought from Allah. Even so, the people did not believe what Nooh (Alaihissalaam) told them. They laughed at him and said,

    "You are only a man like us. Only poor, weak people believe you. If you are telling truth, then show us the punishment you threaten. You are nothing but a liar!"

    "I do not want anything from you," Nooh (Alaihissalaam) answered, "and I shall never send away the poor or the weak. As far as the punishment is concerned, Allah will bring it upon you whenever he pleases. Don’t imagine you can stop Allah’s plans!"

    Nooh (Alaihissalaam) was both sad and angry that people would not heed his message. But Allah informed Nooh (Alaihissalaam) that he should not feel this way. There was much more important work to do. Nooh (Alaihissalaam) must build a big ship.

    In obedience to Allah’s instructions, Nooh (Alaihissalaam) began to build the ship on land. The people who saw it when they were passing made fun of him and his ship. But Nooh (Alaihissalaam) had a warning for them;

    "You are making fun of us now," he said, "but soon we will know who has to suffer the severe punishment!"

    When the ship was completed, it started to rain without ceasing and the waters on earth began to rise. Allah (subhaanahu wa ta'aalaa) told Nooh (Alaihissalaam) to go into the ship, together with his family and all his friends who believed. Nooh (Alaihissalaam) should also take one male and female from each kind of animal on earth.

    Nooh (Alaihissalaam) did as he was told and then he said,

    "In the name of Allah, we shall now sail away, and when the time is right, we shall return again to the land."

    The waters rose higher and higher until all the valleys were flooded. Nooh (Alaihissalaam) saw one of his sons who had not yet boarded the ship and anxiously called out to him,

    "O my son, climb on board with us so that you will not belong to the unbelievers."

    But his son refused. Instead, he told Nooh:

    "I shall go up to the high mountain. The water cannot reach me there."

    Nooh (Alaihissalaam) became even more anxious;

    "Only those who listen to Allah can find protection!" he cried out to his son.

    But just then a huge wave came and many people were drowned. Nooh (Alaihissalaam)’s son was among them.

    It continued to rain for a long, long time. The water rose so high that it covered all the mountains. But at last the rain stopped falling and the floods went down.

    Now, Nooh (Alaihissalaam)’s ship landed safely at the side of a mountain and all the people and animals who had been on the ship came out. Nooh (Alaihissalaam) and his family and his friends thanked Allah with all their hearts, because they had been saved by Him.

    Prophet Hud

    (Alaihis- salaam)


    Many years ago, there lived a very industrious, hardworking people. They were the people of Aad, and they built large and beautiful houses. On every mountain, they had erected a tower and they were very proud of their beautiful buildings.

    Among the people of Aad lived a man called Hud (Alaihis- salaam), and Hud (Alaihis- salaam) had been chosen by Allah as His prophet. Allah has sent me to you, Hud (Alaihis- salaam) said to his people. Allah has taught you all that you are able to do. He has also given you children and many animals. Therefore you should stop worshipping your false gods. Worship only Allah I and obey His commands. Do good and do not commit wrongs and evil. Listen to what I say, for if you do not, I fear that a punishment will come upon you.

    But the people of Aad scorned Hud (Alaihis- salaam): We are not going to listen to you, they scoffed. We are not going to let our gods down, just because you tell us to. Who are you, anyway? You are nothing but a liar. If you are not a liar, then prove it: tell Allah to send us the punishment.

    Hud (Alaihis- salaam) was very sad and disappointed when he heard this. I am not a liar, I am the Prophet of Allah, he said, "Do you think the houses you have built will last for ever? Remember that it is Allah Who has given you your fortunes. He is my Lord and your Lord and only in Him do I trust. I have already warned you before: If you don’t obey Allah, He will choose some other people to take your place. Allah knows and hears everything. But despite Hud (Alaihis- salaam)’s warnings, the people of Aad went on worshipping their false gods. Hud was very disappointed. He called his true companions together and with them, he left the people of Aad. In this way, as you shall soon see, Allah protected and preserved those who believed in Him.

    Shortly afterwards, a huge black cloud appeared in the sky over the people of Aad. When the unbelievers of Aad saw it, they said: This cloud is surely going to bring us some refreshing rain.

    But they were very much mistaken. The cloud brought a terrible wind which killed them all. The wind swept everything away. Nothing was left except a few large stones, which were the remains of the houses and towers. Therefore, it is of no use to build and make many things. If one does not obey Allah, the punishment is sure to come, and all one has built will become ruins.
