    • TASAWWUR ISLAM
      “Those who are unsure of the reality – of where they were from, where they are presently at or what this worldly life is about, and where they will be going to ... are aptly termed in the Qur’an as ‘those who are astray! ” - Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail

    • MAN NEEDS TO BE GUIDED
      Everyone of us has certain basic questions within ourselves:
      “Why have we been created?”
      “What is the purpose of my being here in this world?”
      “Why do people die?”
      “Does it end here?”
      “ Where will we go to after death?” ... Etc.

    • MAN NEEDS TO BE GUIDED
      Some may ignore these questions, yet they are still in us and we will have to seek the Truth regarding this matter – sooner or later.
      Man’s limited knowledge of Reality, would not be able to fathomed this mystery.

    • MAN NEEDS TO BE GUIDED
      Only Allah s.w.t. the Creator of every creation knows the truth and Reality of our existence, the reason for our being created and our destiny.
      Ever since Adam a.s., mankind has been promised by Allah, guidance from Him. This is through His sending men, who were Prophets and Messengers, who received the Divine messages.
      And the basic fundamental Truth of the message they bring must be universal, consistently similar and unchanging, throughout.

      وَلَقَدۡ بَعَثۡنَا فِى ڪُلِّ أُمَّةٍ۬ رَّسُولاً أَنِ ٱعۡبُدُواْ ٱللَّهَ
      وَٱجۡتَنِبُواْ ٱلطَّـٰغُوتَ‌ۖ فَمِنۡهُم مَّنۡ هَدَى ٱللَّهُ
      وَمِنۡهُم مَّنۡ حَقَّتۡ عَلَيۡهِ ٱلضَّلَـٰلَةُ‌ۚ

    •  “And verily We have raised in every nation a messenger, (proclaiming): Serve (worship) Allah and shun false gods.
      Then some of them (there were) whom Allah guided, and some of them (there were) upon whom error had just hold. Do but travel in the land and see the nature of the consequence for the deniers!”

    • “ Whosever receives guidance, receives it for his own benefit: whosoever goes astray doth so to his own loss: no bearer of burdens can bear the burden of another: nor would We visit with Our Wrath until We had sent an messenger (to give warning).
       When We decide to destroy a population, We (first) send a definite order to those among them who are given the good things of this life and yet transgress; so that the word is proved true against them: then We destroy them utterly.”

    • PHENOMENON OF PROPHETHOOD
      We do acknowledge a category of people who discover “Laws” in nature and regard them as reliable and their findings learnt, applied and continue to be taught.
      These are the people gifted with insights and inspired with knowledge of the physical world. We called them “Scientists”.

    • PHENOMENON OF PROPHETHOOD
      Yet there is another category of people, who came in different place and time, yet all claimed to receive Divine communication, asserted similar universal message of God, of man’s moral obligation, of the life in Hereafter etc.
      They delivered a message which transcend knowledge of this physical world, inviting mankind towards Faith in the One God. These are the Anbiya’ [translated as “Prophets or Apostles.”]

    • DISTINCTION BETWEEN ‘NABIY’ AND ‘RASUL’
      TASAWWUR ISLAM
      The word “Nabi” means “prophet” refers to a male person who receives divine inspiration, to assist them in guiding the people based upon code of life which had already been conveyed by earlier Messengers (Rasul).
      Word “Rasul” means a “Messenger”, it refers to a “Nabi” who were tasked to convey a new message, code of life to the people, complementing and superseding what had came before.
      17
      AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail-2010
    • DISTINCTION BETWEEN ‘NABIY’ AND ‘RASUL’
      TASAWWUR ISLAM
      So not every “Nabi” is a “Rasul”; whereas all “Rasul” must also be a “Nabi”.
      According to a tradition, Allah has sent 124,000 Prophets (Anbiya’).

      30
      AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail-2010
      • Muslims do not regard al-Islam as a ‘religion’ or that Islam was founded by Muhammad – as purported in many history books.
      • It is ‘Ad-Deen’ a total way of life, based upon revelations from Allah (the One and only God), proclaimed since the first Prophet Adam a.s., providing mankind with guidance through submission to God’s Will (Islam) to be established in accordance with their needs, until it culminated with the coming of the final Prophet Muhammad - as man’s life had gradually evolved from simple nomadic life toward a higher or global civilization.
      31
      CRITERIA
      AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail-2010
    • CRITERIA
      As man’s life and his needs differ from one era to another, therefore some of the legal precepts (laws) brought by these prophets would have to be different – in accordance with differing times and changing needs.
      Yet, in the fundamental Truth and the basic teachings of Reality (Haqiqat),this would (and must) be expected to remain unchanging and consistently similar throughout – from Adam, to Noah, to Abraham, to Moses, to Jesus and finally to Muhammad. (Peace & blessings be upon them all).
      32
      AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail-2010
    • CRITERIA
      We believe these fundamental principles can guide us to verify truth, whatever may remain amongst the many ‘religions’ in today’s pluralistic world – because in essence, all prophets advocating belief in the One God, must be proclaiming the same basic Truth.
      What are these?

    • “ATTESTATION TO ONENESS OF GOD”
      Belief in the Absolute Oneness of God is the most important teachings of every Prophet sent to mankind since Adam a.s.
      The belief in One unique Divine Being (God) - Who has neither partners nor image to be compared with - was never a complex notion.
      Thus idol worship, or attempts to create images of the Divine, ascribing anthropomorphic ideas into theology etc. , cannot be attributed to teachings of the Prophets - but were post-prophetic innovations and theology introduced by others.
      40
      AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail-2010
    • “ATTESTATION TO ONENESS OF GOD”
      Man’s inquisitive search to know about God’s attributes and essence have led many to innovate on their own, creating objects of worship (ma’budat) – thus compromising the notion of God being the Unique One – without likeness.
      This explain why certain religions, later became infused with totem, anthropomorphism, myths, superstitions etc.
      It is because of such deviations that subsequent Prophets were sent - to correct and re-assert the same universal Truth.
      41
      AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail-2010
    • “ATTESTATION TO ONENESS OF GOD”
      So today, those who claim to being monotheistic, must be sincere and eradicate whatever false notions which certain theology may actually be advocating, and return to adhere to the Truth.
      42
      AllRightsReserved©ZhulkefleeHjIsmail-2010
    • “ATTESTATION TO ONENESS OF GOD”
      Such Truth ought to be simple (not simplistic), non-contradictory and clear (not mysterious and antithetical to reason). Message that can be accepted by all levels of society. Thus:
      “There is no other god except Allah (God)”
      “Hear O Israel! your Lord our God, the Lord is One”
      “God is One, but wise men call Him by many Names”
      Any subsequent teachings or theology which deviate from, and opposed to, this basic Truth must be regarded as crooked interpolation and false.
