Islam + Islam Way

 "Islam is the only religion that we can find the whole goodness of other religions in it but we cannot find whole goodness in other religions! Islam always have been in the place of my appreciation, because it is the only religion that has the gift of digesting different life stages, and has the ability to attract hearts over the years, Islam proved since its first appearance that it is the religion of all races, for it combine Solemn the Persian , Belal the Abyssin and Suhaib the Roman and all milted in one pot"

(Bernard Shaw the Philosopher)

Why Islam? The question "why?" demands a rational answer.

However, many people think that it is not possible to give rational answers to ideological. Many people do commit themselves illogically to various ideologies and continue to hold onto them only because they find themselves to be raised up in particular communities. This is Different in Islam.

In this part we will answer this question Why Islam?

Islam is an integral way of life. In many ways it is a more determining factor in the experience of its followers than any other world religion.

The Muslim ("One who submits") lives face to face with God at all times and will introduce no separation between his life and his religion, his politics and his faith.

Islam is derived from the Arabic root "Salema": peace, purity, submission and obedience. In the religious sense, Islam means submission to the will of God and obedience to His law. Salam may also mean greeting one another with peace.

One of the beautiful names of God is that He is the Peace. It means more than that: submission to the One God, and to live in peace with the Creator, within one's self, with other people and with the environment.

A Muslim is supposed to live in peace and harmony with all these segments; hence, a Muslim is any person anywhere in the world whose obedience, allegiance, and loyalty are to God, the Lord of the Universe.

Muslims are supposed to live in accordance with God's laws. By doing so, they strive to obtain nearness to God and victory over temporary trials and temptations in this world. All aspects of their practice including prayer, fasting, charity, and pilgrimage are intended to help meet this goal.

And so this section's aim is to help everybody meet that same goal.
