here are six articles of faith in Islam they are to believe in the oneness of God,His angel,He’s revealed books,His envoys,and the day of judgement,and to believe predestination.I have chosen two out of the six they are the prophets,and the day of judgement.The reason i chose these two is because they are linked as all the prophets were of different colour but they all preached the same message.This can be linked to the day of judgement as no matter your race,colour,or religion we will all be standing before god to be accountable for our own sins and good deeds we have done in the world we have departed from.
One of the key beliefs is to believe in all of God’s envoys,this belief in the prophets of God means a person regarded as an inspired teacher or proclaimer of the will of God.This being that as it may, sundry prophets and flag-bearers are straightforwardly referenced in the Quran, including, among others, Adam, Noah, Abraham, Lot, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Moses, Aaron, David, Solomon, Jonah, John the Baptist, Jesus, and Muhammad, harmony arrive all.
There were numerous prophets and distribution people, and a Muslim isn’t sanctioned to pick and pick among the prophets and detachments of Allah. A Muslim must apperceive with equipollent regard every one of the prophets and distribution people of Allah of whom he knows e.g., explicitly those referenced in the Quran.However, consistent throughout all these revelations, which were given to different prophets at different times, the central theme was the Oneness of Allah. Only Allah is worthy of worship. Not withstanding the messenger, the setting, or the progressive character of the revelation, the fundamental truth of the Oneness of Allah was the pivotal point of the message provided by Allah. This fact is explicitly stated by Allah in the following verse from the Quran Not a messenger did We send before thee without this inspiration by Us to him: that there is no god but I; therefore worship and serve Me. (Quran surah 21 verse 21:25).This is important as they were all sent by the same God and preached the same message which is the oneness of God to the people of their time and we should not neglect any of God’s prophets as all of them came with lessons for us to learn about from their life and struggles,and know that no matter whatever hardships we face in our life God will always guide you if you remember him.This is shown in the Quran surah surah 16:verse 36 And indeed We have already sent forth in every nation a Messenger (saying), “Worship Allah and avoid the Taghut.” (i.e., false gods) Then (some) of them Allah guided; and errancy came true against (some of) them. So travel in the earth, then look into how was the end of the beliers.This verse means that we cannot associate any partners with God as He is one,and that he sent to every nation a messenger preaching a message of worship God alone and to of false gods,but God guides whom he wills and leaves other astray,and that we should look on the earth for the signs of the disbelievers from previous nations as we don’t see any signs of existence were previous nations were.We are shown that we cannot discriminate between racial colour of people as the (Qur’n surah ghafir 40:78)And, indeed We have sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad(SAW); of some of them We have related to you their story and of some We have not related to you their story, and it was not given to any Messenger that he should bring a sign except by the Leave of Allah. So, when comes the Commandment of Allah, the matter will be decided with truth, and the followers of falsehood will then be lost. This ayah explains that there are only certain stories of 25 prophets which are stated in the Quran, and there are many more stories that is not mentioned in the Quran,but we know that there were many more Nabi’s and messengers that are not mentioned.In this light we see that we cannot discriminate between the racial colours of people because all nations were sent a prophet meaning that there are many prophets from different backgrounds and colours of that nation,hence the last prophet had many important people that played a role in prophet Muhammad (PBUH) life were black,the woman who breastfed prophet Muhammad (PBUH) ,the woman he called my mother after my mother,the only man prophet Muhammad (PBUH) adopted,the only companion mentioned in the quran,the man prophet Muhammad (PBUH) called my son,the youngest man to lead a muslim army,the first family member to accept islam,the first ever martyr in islam,and the first Muadhin in all three of the holy mosques.Therefore the prophet Muhammad (SAW) narrated a hadith which said An Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab and a white has no superiority over a black man,nor a black man over a white man (noone has superiority over another person) except by righteousness and good actions.In this hadith i learned that my personal judgement for a black man and a white man has to be the same as we are all sister in brothers in islam.as the prophet(PBUH)didn’t discriminate between a white man and a black man as the prophet(PBUH) had companions from all different backgrounds and colours therefore if we were to judge we would have a serious problem with the most important people in the Prophet(PBUH) livelihood.This hadith also has a socialite implication as in the 21st century people are quick to judge a person based on their colour and racial background rather than looking at their character,morals, and valuesBelief in the day of judgement,is compulsory on every Muslim,as it is one of the six articles of faith.On this day God will resurrect all of mankind who had lived on earth to judge them and the deeds that they put forth,and He God will assign either paradise,or hellfire.Muslims must also believe with surety in the day of judgement of as God says in surah 11:103 In that is a Sign for those who fear the penalty of the Hereafter: that is a Day for which mankind will be gathered together: that will be a Day of Testimony. Nor shall We delay it but for a term appointed.This means a day that is great.The angels will be seen on that day, the Messengers will be gathered and all of the advent can be accumulated with their families. The people, Jinns, birds, wild beasts and domesticated driving animals will all be amassed. Then the most Just ,Who does not wrong any person even the weight of an atom’s weight, will judge among them and he will growth their precise deeds in praise.On that Day shall no intercession avail except for those for whom permission has been granted by (Allah) Most Gracious and whose word is acceptable to Him. (Quran 20:109).This ayat means that* I’ve got me to worry about. You’re on your own, pal.Muslims,and the Prophet(PBUH) and even the archangel Gabriel does not know the appointed time of the day of judgement,as mentioned in a narration the archangel asks the messenger of God (PBUH) when the hour was,and the Prophet(PBUH)replied the one questioning knows no more than the questioner.This is mentioned in the quran They ask thee about the Hour ‘When will be its appointed time?’ Wherein art thou (concerned) with the declaration thereof? With thy Lord is the limit fixed therefore.Thou art but a warner for such as fear it. (Quran 79:42-45)By this they did not mean to know the time and date of the coming of resurrection but to mock it.There are many signs that Muslims must know in order to know when the day of judgement is near,there a major signs that occur relevantly close to the day of judgement and it also involves matters that could and can be out of the ordinary such as the sun rising from the west,once this happens God will not accept any prayers,For those who disbelieved,they will see for real what they had disbelieved in.Masih ad-Dajjal (The AntiChrist),The Mahdi,The appearance of Masih al-‘Isa (Jesus Christ), the son of Mary (peace be upon him),Ya’juj and Ma’juj (Gog and Magog)The destruction of the Ka’bah and the recovery of its treasure,Emergence of the Beast,The smoke,Three major landslides (one in the East, one in the West, and one on the Arabian peninsula)The wind will take the souls of the believers,The fire will drive the people to their final gathering place,Three blasts of the trumpet (fear & terror, death, resurrection)The Prophet(PBUH)mentioned that there are more than fifty minor signs of the Hour in many of hadiths,such as The consumption of intoxicants will be widespread (Bukhari & Muslim),Killing, killing, killing (Bukhari, Muslim, Ibn Majah, & Ahmad),The children will be filled with rage (at-Tabarani, al-Hakim),Female singers and musical instruments will become popular (at-Tirmidhi),Earthquakes will increase (Bukhari & Muslim),and The conquest of Constantinople by the Muslims (Ahmad),even though the are many more some of these minor signs have already happened .We only know that the Day of Judgement will start when angel Israfil will blow the trumpet from a holy rock in Jerusalem to announce the Day of Resurrection.”That Day a man will flee from his brother, and his mother and his father, and his wife and his children.” (Quran 80: 34-36). “Fleeing” might mean that once he sees people who were nearest and showed love to him during this world, in distress, rather than dashing forth to assist them, he will run far away from them in case they should call out to him for help.Aisha, the wife of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) and the mother of the believers, once asked him,”I’d like to ask you two questions ” He said: “Sure, if I even have the answers.” She asked: “How will the individuals be resurrected?” He said: “Naked and barefooted.” (One version also adds: “uncircumcised”). She was quiet for a short while and then asked: “What about the women?” He answered: “In a similar state.” She exclaimed: “Will they not inspect every other?” The Prophet answered: “The affair are far more serious than that.” Then he recited this verse, “For every one of them that Day can have enough preoccupations of his own.meaning that everyone will be accounted for his/her own deeds and no one will worry about anyone other than themselves and will not look at anyone else as they will be preoccupied by their own reckoning.in the hadith of jibreel(archangel gabriel)stated that the said that iman is”Iman is to believe in Allah, the Day of Judgment, His (Allah’s) Angels, Books and Prophets and to believe in life after death; and to believe in Paradise and the Fire, and the setting up of the Mizan (scales) to weigh the deeds; and to believe in the Divine Decree, the good and the bad of it (all). The wider implication of the day of judgement is that we can see many of the signs that are shown above happening now in the 21st century,scholars say that many of the minor signs have happened only imam Mahdi must come then all the minor signs have been complete,then the major signs will take place meaning that we are getting closer to the day of judgement every day.Thence muslims should try to fulfil and do l as many good deeds as they can.
