The Islamic Ummah: The Islamic Model

This is my original song, Won’t Forget This, which I wrote last night/this morning. I had a rough night, I lost my voice, and I messed up real hard. So please pardon my voice, it’s not at the best times; I also just woke up. But I still hope you enjoy! Comment Rate and Subcribe! 🙂 Some of you might know what the song’s about, because I told you I’d write it, so here it is. I wrote this last night, while I was devastated at the time. I thought I’d make a video of it while I was in the mood. “Having feelings proves that we are only human, and the mistakes we make are the hardest lessons.” – Chloe. My Facebook Page: www.facebook.com My Facebook Page: www.facebook.com My Twitter: twitter.com Lyrics: Please don’t let this go This feeling we got, It should be lasting more than this. I left you in the dark, And I knew from the start That it’s, it’s my one regret. I threw It all away Crushed, flushed down the drain How much longer can I wait? I can’t define our love inside The guilt we bring to the table every night It’s time to go, oh girl pick up the phone tonight. We’ll find out place in this world somehow, Our deepest thoughts and the vows we made, We can’t be tamed, Oh girl not now, It’s just not the time and place. I’ll make it up to you, Cuz’ I won’t Forget This. Perhaps this time I can’t allow myself to find this out I helped you out just to knock me down Perhaps it’s time to let go of this feeling Or perhaps it’s time to myself that she’s not the one for me. I threw It

The Islamic Ummah: THE ISLAMIC MODEL

                                                              

 The Sources of Islam

In this article we propose to study briefly the sources of Islam in order to find out whether or not there is an overall perspective of an Islamic model. The attempt here is made to search in these sources for universal references revealing universal relationships and defining meanings for man’s existence. We maintain the idea that the Qur’anic text is ample enough to provide with such a framework. Its convincing power lies in the ‘content of ideas’ and the ‘representation form’. This power level is not shared in any Arabic literature of the epoch, nor of the following epochs. The Hadith (Sayings of Muhammad) stands short of the Qur’an and is considered by Muslims as an ordinary human language.

The readings of such references can provide interpretations of general dimensions as we shall see in the following Qur’anic postulates.

 In the following verses we read about what the Qur’an advances as a presentation of the idea of God:

‘Say: He is the one and only God, the eternal, He begets not nor is He begotten and no one can be equal to Him.’  112: 1-4

 Reference to God as the origin of the Universe informs:

‘It is He who created the heavens and earth in truth.’  6: 73

 ‘To God belongs the dominion of the heavens and earth.’2: 107

Sura 35 informs us of God as the One who holds the Universe together:

‘God keeps heavens and earth from vanishing and should they vanish who can hold them together after Him?’  35: 41

 In Sura 23 we are informed about the creation of Man:

‘Verily We have created Man from a lineage of clay.’  23:12

 

Creation of Man by an Act

After the creation of man God, we are told in the Qur’an, commanded the angels to prostrate unto him:

‘Your Lord said to the angels: ‘I am about to create man from clay, when I have fashioned him and breathed into him of my spirit, fall you down in prostration unto him’. 38: 71-72

 

The purpose of creating man, according to the Qur’an, is to worship God:

‘I have not created Djins and Humans except for worshiping Me.’ 51:56

 

After the creation of Adam and his wife Eve they were commanded to dwell in the Garden, but not approach a certain tree (the tree is symbol of sexual relation in Islam and that of knowledge in the Bible). Adam’s and Eve’s disobedience to the command has led to their subsequent fall. The fall is followed by a message to mankind, progeny of Adam and Eve, sent at different times. People’s reactions to the messages, in terms of belief and disbelief, will be dealt with, on a day of judgement, where reward and punishment will be administered according to human choice :

‘We said: ‘Get you down all from here; and if, as is sure, there comes from Me guidance, those who follow My guidance shall have no fear and they shall have no grief. But those who reject and belie Our signs they shall be the dwellers of fire, therein they shall abide forever.’2: 38 –
