Islam is not a new religion, but the same truth that God revealed through all His prophets to every people. For a fifth of the world’s population, Islam is both a religion and a complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the majority have nothing to do with the extremely grave events which have come to be associated with their faith.
Islam is the Truth and the answer to all questions, both metaphysical and profane. Allah has given us everything, and He wants from us our belief, love, and sacrifice for His sake.
This is obvious in a Qur’anic verse that means:
“Surely my prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are (all) for Allah, the Lord of the worlds.”(6:162)
