Islam is an Ideal Religion
Islam is commonly used as the name of a religion whose followers are referred to as Muslims. In Arabic, however, the word islam literally means “submission (to God)” so that muslim refers to “one who submits (to God).” Koran is the Holy book of Allah Almighty. Which is revealed upon Holy Prophet (PB.UH). All the prophets preached the same universal message of belief in one God and kindness to humanity. The last in the series of prophets, according to Muslims, was Muhammad.
Muslims have six major beliefs:
- Belief in one Allah
- And Belief in the Angels
- Belief in the holy books sent to all the prophets including Torah that was revealed to the prophet Moses, Bible that was revealed to the prophet Jesus, and Quran (Koran) that was revealed to the prophet Muhammad (PB.UH).
- Belief in all the prophets sent by God including Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad.
- Belief in the Day of Judgment and life after death. The best reward for performing good deeds is getting closer to God.
- Belief in divine decree. This means that God is all-powerful and nothing can happen without His permission, however, he has given human beings freedom to choose whether to be good or bad. In the end,the question, how they lived in this life, will be asked .
Prayer and prayer Calling:
Salah or prayer is an important part of religion Islam. Salah is obligatory on every Muslim commanded by Allah Almighty. And Muslim must offer it 5 daily prayer times. Through namaz we can communicate with Allah Almighty. Also is it the highest form of earning closeness to our creator. Adhan in arabic is an announcement of prayer which the mu’azzin called from the Mosque. Five times a day calling Muslims for mandatory worship that is salah.
We can say that adhan is an appeal to all muslims about the time of five daily prayers and also for congregation prayer. Adhan meaning in english translation is as follow:
God is Great! God is Great! The God is Great! God is Great!
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God,
I bear witness that there is no god except the One God.
Bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of God,

Hurry to the prayer, Hurry to the prayer.
