Islam is a universal provision for a peaceful life. One and a half thousand years ago, Islam was revealed as a complete and suitable way of life for all people of all eras. Upon the last and final Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Allah Almighty perfected this religion for Mankind. The words and guidance of the great Creator Allah SWT and the teachings of the last Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) are not only limited to beliefs and moral rules but also include applicable and suitable laws for human beings. As a result, nothing is missing in human life in the provision of Islam. The Holy Qur’an states:
الْيَوْمَ أَكْمَلْتُ لَكُمْ دِينَكُمْ وَأَتْمَمْتُ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعْمَتِي وَرَضِيتُ لَكُمُ الْإِسْلَامَ دِينًا
“Today I have perfected your religion for you, and completed My favor upon you, and have chosen Islam as your DEEN (way of life)” Al-Maidah: 03
So, according to the Holy Qur’an, Islam is a way of life and a complete code of life. Now let’s see when we can call a life system a complete system.
The Conditions of A Complete Code of Life
# Firstly, there must be a reasonable and satisfying statement about the identity of the Creator and the purpose of creation.
# There will have answers about invisible objects. What will happen after the death of a person, the subject must be an accurate, reasonable, and satisfactory statement.
# It must be given to the past, present, future, and secret and open omniscient.
# Here should have a clear goal of success in human life and be a cause of peace of mind.
# It must have also clear guidelines and principles for solving all the problems that arise in human life.
# Should have the rules and regulations to meet the biological, moral, and spiritual needs of the people.
# Must have the principles and guidelines on all issues, including family, social, economic, political, legal, and international.
# It must be universal and useful to all people undoubtedly.
# This must be useful at all times. It must have a pattern of usefulness to practice and follow and implement.
# There will be guaranteed rewards for honesty, justice, good deeds, benevolence, and righteousness.
# It should have an appropriate punishment and punishment system for injustice, crime, misdeeds, wickedness, and oppression.
# Of course It will have sovereign and omnipotent authority and must have a source of complete unaltered eternal knowledge.
Islam is The Complete Code of Life
All these above conditions are available in Islam alone. If you read and analyze the Holy Quran and Hadiths, you will see that only Islam has fulfilled all the above criteria. Surely, Islam has the solution to the question of age. All religions except Islam offer only some moral and spiritual advice. We can not find the vast political, economic, social, and international aspects of human life, scientific law, judicial, agricultural, and industrial policy in any of them. Every secular doctrine in the world has a foundation based on the Creator and secular materialism theology. So, they have nothing to do with the entire life of humans. The conditions and characteristics of a complete life system of human life are also missing in all other ideologies.
However, Islam is the only complete code of life for human beings. The principles given by Islam for each section of life are still as infallible and unique as they were in their early days. People of any religion, caste, or ethnic group in the world adopting Islam as their way of life, will undoubtedly become the best, the greatest, and most beautiful human group in the world. Because, The Qur’an says:
‘Today I have perfected your way of life for you. I have bestowed upon you My blessings (Al-Quran), and I have chosen Islam for your way of life. (Surat al-Ma’ida: 5: 3)
