Islam : be a reflection of the light of God in society

• Islam = triple relations: with Allah, with one and with others

1) How Islam is my relation with Allah?

Allah established religion to show to his servants how to go towards Him. And this way is

just The Islam, which describes bottom and form, and that allows us to love our lord really

loved as Him wants it, and not as we are meant it.

Islam manufactures our relation with Allah in sense where he shows us how to meet it,

how to be in his nearness, how to have talks with Him, what He likes and that he does not

like …

2) How Islam is my relation with myself?

Islam learns us about ourselves a lot: which is the sense of our life, what is good for us and

that is bad …

Islam also gives us keys to live in this world in complete safety.

3) How Islam is my relation with others?

One of the purposes of Islam is to build the community of the believers around shared

values, around respect for rights and for duties of each in the research of general interest.

In this direction, Islam establishes all rules allowing to improve our relation with others

and so not to make them injustice, directly or indirectly.

• Islam was established to improve good behaviors

1) What is the importance of good behaviors in Islam?

Good behaviors represent 80 % Islams: they are the direct and concrete application of the

main principles of the Holy Koran in the society, during correlations and relations which

people maintain between them.

Several verses of the Koran stress the importance of good behaviors and several words of

the prophet promise the highest degrees of paradise to which will have improved his

character and his behavior.

2) How must be the believer in his relations with others?

The believer must be the reflexion of Allah’s mercy and must be just like the prophet: He

must be source of peace and mercy. People around him have to fear no trouble for his/her

part: The believer wishes it for others than he wishes for himself, and works in this

direction: he notably acts with people as he would like that they make him with him.

3) What are characteristic features of character of the believer?

Patience, intelligence, mercy, perseverance, kindness, rapidity in effort, optimism …

• Just like The prophet: the believer must be source of mercy

1) How was the prophet( SAW) in the society?

Long before to receive his mission, the prophet (SAW) was known and admitted to be

trustworthy, true and loyal. He maintained family ties, helped those who were in trouble,

supported the widow and the orphan, found solutions, solved conflicts, recommended the

good and forbade the trouble.

2) What are the acts of adoration Allah’s most favorite?

Among acts the most favorite of Allah, the prophet (SAW) named all that is of benefit to

others. He also said that those whom Allah most likes, are those who are the most useful

to others and to the society.

• Assets in the society, to want the good for others

1) How is the Muslim in his society?

Just like the prophet (SAW )in his epoch, the Muslim makes integral part of his community:

he is active in his society, he works and participates in common effort, he tries to improve

what owes the being and is impregnated with its codes, us and customs.

2) value job

Islam works between others in the development of the humanity and in the prosperity of

the community. It is notably in this frame that Islam encourages job, effort and research. If

job is not a canonical adoration, it becomes it when the intention of working in the public

interest is present.

3) Mutual assistance in the accomplishment of the common good

Islam encourages strongly in mutual assistance for the realization of all what is good and

useful to people. So, withdraw from the public highway what bothers people a good deed

is already. To spare others of the trouble than they go rot to make them a good deed is.

Good advice is a good deed, and so on.

• Role of the believer: carry the message to people, persuade not them nor judge them

1) Is the believer made responsible for transmitting the message of Islam?

Every believer has duty to transmit the message of Islam around him, according to his

possibilities and his situation.

2) How must he make it?

He must transmit the message first of all across his good behaviors and his high morality.

Then with wisdom and by words of God.

3) Is his role to persuade people?

No. Its role is only to transmit the message of the best way and to introduce it under its

best day. Such is its responsibility. That the not Muslim accepts or not the message is of his

responsibility, not that of the believer.

4) Can he judge other people?

Under no circumstances. Being sensible transmit the message, he can make it only by

wishing the best for others, not them by judging. He judgesacts, theirauthors
