The creation and existence of everything in this world has a purpose and wisdom behind it. Human beings are the superior creation as Allah has given them the intellect, has created everything for them, and has given them power and knowledge over most of the creation.
This is a gift for all the new Muslims who currently know the right path to Allah. This is a means to strength and preserve their belief. In these audios Sheikh Fahd Salem Bahammam shows the fruits of becoming a Muslim, the excellent features of Islam and all aspects of Islam. Sheikh Fahd illustrates the pillars of faith on which one’s belief is based and the pillars of Islam which contain the best practical deeds (e.g. prayer) and the best deeds of the heart i.e. the monotheism. As Islam is a social religion, Sheikh explains the Muslim’s behavior towards all individuals in the society, old or young, whether they embrace Islam or not. Afterwards he puts up some notice about both of the permissible and prohibited financial dealings. He also mentions the factors which increase the one’s belief and help the Muslim to abide by Allah’s commands. He refers to the obstacles (e.g. lust, misconception and ignorance) in the path of the Muslims prevent him from continuing his way to Allah. He also shows the prerequisites of the sincere repentance which is between the person and his God without a mediator. Finally, he gives a word for the new Muslim.
Know my brother that worship is obligatory upon every Muslim who is mentally sane and has reached the age of puberty. Performing these pillars of Islam is a means to enter jannah, after the mercy of Allah.
In numerous places in the Quran, Allah makes it clear that the key to salvation is not a mere declaration of one’s faith or a false faith that has no righteous deeds as its fruits. Instead, the key is a true faith that combines with and is the driving force behind performing righteous deeds.
Since man is created for the worship of Allah, Allah has explained all types of worship for him in the Quraan and Sunnah so that he can move closer to Allah by doing all that Allah enjoins and abstain from all that He forbids.
Islamic worship is not valid unless it fulfils two conditions:
Belief in God's Oneness is the most important act of worship a human being does.
The best way to answer these questions is to first understand who God is in the context of worship. God by definition is the One who is entitled to our worship; it is a necessary fact of His own existence. The Qur’an repeatedly highlights this fact about God.
'Where I would go?' The most haunting question that should keep you awake at night. 'Would it be better or worse?'
Focus of the Quran: serve and worship God in all you do, in how you live, and how you interact with people and your environment
