Hadith about the Basic Beliefs

It is narrated by Abu Huraira

One day while the Prophet (ﷺ) was sitting in the company of some people, (The angel) Gabriel came and asked, “What is faith?” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) replied, ‘Faith is to believe in Allah, His angels, (the) meeting with Him, His Apostles, and to believe in Resurrection.” Then he further asked, “What is Islam?” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) replied, “To worship Allah Alone and none else, to offer prayers perfectly to pay the compulsory charity (Zakat) and to observe fasts during the month of Ramadan.” Then he further asked, “What is Ihsan (perfection)?” Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) replied, “To worship Allah as if you see Him, and if you cannot achieve this state of devotion then you must consider that He is looking at you.” ( Sahih Bukhari, Book 2, Hadith 43)

Let us further discuss in a bit detail the basic beliefs of the Muslims.

Tawhid-Faith in Oneness of Allah SWT

Tawhid is utilized to portray the faith in “Oneness of Allah”. Tawhid originates from an Arabic word signifying “unification” or “unity”. As Muslims, our one and premier conviction is that nobody is deserving of love then Allah. Allah is the, only one and has no accomplice. As Said in Quran:

قُلْ هُوَاللَّهُ أَحَدٌ

“State: He, Allah, is One.” (112:1)

Also, He says:

قُلْ إِنَّمَا هُوَ إِلَهٌ وَحِدٌ وَإِنَّنِى بَرِى‏ءٌ مِّمَّا تُشْرِكُونَ‏

State: “He is just a single God, and I am away from that which you set up (with Him).” (6:19)

Faith in Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

Being Muslims, our subsequent conviction is that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the prophet of Allah sent to us to guide us correctly. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the last prophet of Allah and the most unrivaled among all the prophets of Allah. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) life is a good example for all the individuals and each Muslim should attempt to follow his life.

ما کانَ مُحَمَّدٌ أَبا أَحَد مِنْ رِجالِکُمْ وَ لکِنْ رَسُولَ اللّهِ وَ خاتَمَ النَّبِیِّینَ وَ کانَ اللّهُ بِکُلِّ شَیْء عَلِیماً

“Muhammad isn’t the dad of any of your men, yet he is the Messenger of Allah and the remainder of the prophet”

Belief in the Messengers of Allah

Being Muslims we faith in all the Prophets and Messengers of Allah. They accept that Allah’s direction has been uncovered to mankind through exceptionally selected messengers, or prophets, starting with Adam, who is viewed as the principal prophet and Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) is the last Prophet of Allah SWT.

Faith in the Holly books

Muslims accept that Allah sent books to His messengers as verification for humankind and as director for them. Among these books is the Quran, which Allah sent to the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). As Allah stated:

“We have sent down the Quran, and without a doubt, We will watch it (from debasement). “(Quran, 15:9)

Faith in the Angels

Muslims trust in the presence of the heavenly attendants. The blessed messengers love Allah alone, obey Him, and act just by His order. Among the heavenly attendants is Gabriel, who brought down the Quran to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Belief in the Day of Judgment

Muslims strongly believe in the arrival of judgment when all human beings will come back to Allah for the judgment of their deeds. They will be decided for their activities of this world, so those Muslims who complied with Allah’s guidelines will be compensated with heaven and the individuals who didn’t adhere to Allah’s directions will be rebuffed.

May Allah helps us understanding our Deen, and May He guides us on the right path. Aameen.
