1. Simplicity, Rationality, and Practicality
Islam is not a religion based on the
“Are those who know, and those who do not know, equal? Indeed, only those who have a mind commemorate the edification ... ”(Quran 39: 9)
The Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said in one of his hadiths:
“He who leaves his home in search of knowledge, follows the path of the Lord” (At-Tirmidhi).
“The search for knowledge is the duty of every Muslim” (Ibn Majah, Al-Baihaqi).
So, Islam brings a person from the dark world of superstition into the bright world of knowledge.
Religion Islam is not limited to theory. Islam argues that faith is not just a proclamation of belief, but a real way of life. A person’s faith must be confirmed by his righteous actions. That's why Islam is also a practical religion. The Lord says in the Qur'an:
“For those who believe and do righteous deeds, bliss and a beautiful place of return are prepared” (Quran 13:29)
And the prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:
“The Lord does not accept the faith of a person if it is not confirmed by actions, and does not accept actions if they are not confirmed by faith” (At-Tabarani).
So, simplicity, rationality and practicality make Islam a unique and genuine religion.
