The Religion with Allâh is Islâm

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

What is Islâm?

Hâfidh Ibn Ahmad ‘Alî Al-Hakamî said: “Islâm means perfect submission to Allâh with Tawheed [monotheism], compliance to Him with obedience and to be completely free from Shirk [associating partners with Allah]”

(The Signposts of the Propagated Sunnah for the Creed of the Saved and Aided Group Vol. 1)


Allâh says:﴿إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللهِ الإِسْلَـمُ﴾

“Truly, the religion with Allâh is Islâm” (Surah Al ‘Imrân 3:19)

Imâm Ibn Kathîr says: “Allah states that there is no religion accepted with Him from any person, except Islâm. Therefore, after Allâh sent Muhammad صل الله عليه وسلم, whoever meets Allâh following a path other than Muhammads, it will not be accepted of him”

Allah also says:

﴿وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الإِسْلَـمِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ﴾

“And whoever seeks a religion other than Islâm, it will never be accepted of him” (Surah Al ‘Imrân 3:85)

Ibn Kathîr: “Allâh is asserting that the only religion accepted with Him is Islâm”

(Abridged Tafsîr Ibn Kathîr 3:18,19,20)


The prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said:

كان النبي يبعث إلى قومه خاصة، وبعثت إلى الناس عامة

“A prophet used to be sent to his people, but I was sent to all mankind”

Sahîh Al-Bukhari 335

The prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم also said:

والذي نفسي بيده، لا يسمع بي أحد من هذه الأمة: يهودي ولا نصراني، ومات ولم يؤمن بالذي أرسلت به، إلا كان من أهل النار

“By He in Whose Hand is my soul, no member of this Ummah, no Jew or Christian, hears of me but dies without believing in what I was sent with, but will be among the people of the Fire”

Sahîh Muslim 284
