''and treat your parents with kindness; if either of them or both reach old age in your presence, do not say *Uff* to them and do not rebuff them, and speak to them with the utmost respect. And lower your wing humbly for them, with mercy, and pray, "My Lord! Have mercy on them both, the way they nursed me when I was young."(Qur'an 17:23-24)

Verily! Man is in loss,
Except those who believe and do righteous good deeds,
and recommend one another to the truth and recommend one another to patience.
(Al Quran : 103)
Allah (Subhana Ta’ala) Ordains
You have your desire and I have My desire.
My desire shall reign. But if you surrender yourself into my desire I shall bestow you also your desire.
And if you oppose My desire then I shall tire you of fulfilling your desire and ultimately what is to
happen will be of My desire.( Hadith e Qudsi)
Prophet Muhammed (Pbuh) said:- Almighty Allah says:
“ I am with my slaves when he thinks of Me and I am with him when he mentions Me.
For if he mentions Me to himself, I have mentioned him to myself; and if he mentions
Me in a gathering, I have mentioned him in a superior gathering. If he approaches Me
by a hand’s width, I approach him by a arm’s length, and if he approaches Me by an arm’s length, I approaches
him by a mile’s length, and if he comes to Me walking,I hasten to him swiftly’
(AlBukhari 8/171 - Muslim 4/2061)
- Prophet Muhammed (Peace be upon him) -
The last and final Messenger of Allah Almighty
"We have not sent thee but as a universal (Messenger) to men, giving them glad tidings and warning them (against sin), but
most men understand not."
"It is He who hath sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth (Islam), to proclaim it over all religion, even
though the Pagans may detest (it)".
Al -Qur'an 61 : 9
Muhammad(Pbuh) is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the last and seal of
the Prophets; and Allah has full knowledge of all things.
(Al Qur'an 33:40)
Hinduism - (Samveda Book II Hymn 6 verse 8:)
"Ahmed acquired from his Lord the knowledge of eternal law. I received light from him just as from the sun." The
Prophecy confirms: The name of the Prophet as Ahmed, one of the names of Prophet Muhammed (Pbuh). Prophet was
given eternal law, i.e. the Shariah. The Rishi was enlightened by the Shariah of Prophet Muhammad.
He is Narashansah or the praised one (Muhammad). He is Kaurama: the prince of peace or the emigrant, who is safe, even
amongst a host of 60,090 enemies. (Atharvaved - 20 Hymn 127 verse 1)
Pratisarag Parv III Khand 3 Adhay 3 Shloka 10 to 27 Maharishi Vyas has prophesised:
The coming Prophet will attest the truth of the Aryan faith, i.e. Monotheism and will reform the misguided people.
The Prophet’s followers will be circumcised. They will be without a tail on the head and bear a beard and will create a great
Christianity - (Book of Deuteronomy chapter 18 verse 18:)
Almighty God speaks to Moses
"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall
speak unto them all that I shall command him."
(Christianity - Gospel of John chapter 16 verse 12-14:)
Jesus (Pbuh) said:
"I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will
guide you unto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew
you things to come. He shall glorify me".
The Sprit of Truth, spoken about in this prophecy referes to none other than Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
(John chapter 14 verse 16:)
"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever."

Buddhism - (According to the Gospel of Buddha by Carus pg. 217 and 218 - from Ceylon sources)
"Ananda said to the Blessed One, ‘Who shall teach us when thou art gone?'
I now proclaim. His disciples will number many thousands while mine number many hundreds.'
And the Blessed one replied, 'I am not the first Buddha who came upon the earth nor shall I be the last.

Identification of Maitreya by Buddha:
Ananda said, 'How shall we know him?'
The Sanskrit word ‘Maitreya’ or its equivalent in Pali ‘Metteyya’ means loving, compassionate, merciful and benevolent. It
also means kindness and friendliness, sympathy, etc. One Arabic word which is equivalent to all these words is ‘Rahmat’.
The words Mercy and Merciful are mentioned in the Holy Qur’an no less than 409 times.
It is mentioned in Zend Avesta Farvardin Yasht chapter 28 verse 129
(The Beneficent one) because he will benefit the whole bodily world. He will be Astvat-ereta (he who makes the people,
bodily creatures rise up) because as a bodily creature and as a living being he wil stand against the destruction of the bodily
(being) creatures to withstand the drug of the two footed brood, to withstand the evil done by the faithful
(idolaters and the like and the errors of the Mazdaynians)".
This Prophecy applies to no other person more perfectly than it does to Muhammad (pbuh):
saying: "There shall be no reproof against you this day".
Soeshyant means the ‘praised one’ (refer Haisting’s Encyclopedia), which translated in Arabic means Muhammad (pbuh).
Astvat-ereta means the one who praised, which is the exact translation of the Arabic word 'Ahmed' which is
another name for Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
'And hold fast, all of you together, to the Rope of Allah (i.e Qur'an), and be not divided among yourselves,
and remember Allah's Favour on you, for you were enemies one to another but He joined your hearts
together, so that, by His Grace, you became brethren (in Islamic faith), and you were on the brink of a pit of
fire, and He saved you from it. Thus Allah makes His Ayat (signs, evidences, lessons, revelations) clear to you,
that you may be guided'.

Introduction to Islam
Islam is a Semitic religion, which has over one billion adherents all over the world. Islam means "submission to the will of God". Muslims accept the Qur’an, as the word of God revealed to His last and final prophet, Mohammed (peace be upon him). Islam states that Allah sent messengers and prophets throughout the ages with the message of Unity of God, and accountability in the Hereafter. Islam thus makes it an article of faith to believe in all the earlier prophets, starting with Adam, and continuing with Noah, Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, John and Jesus amongst many others (may peace be on them all).
The word ISLAM is derived from the Arabic root word ‘Salam’, which means Peace and also derived from word ‘Silm’, means submitting your will to God Almighty. In short ISLAM means acquiring peace by submitting your will to Allah.
"And if all the trees on earth were pens
And the Ocean (were ink), with seven Oceans behind it
To add to its (supply), yet would not the Words
Of Allah be exhausted (In the writing): for Allah
Is Exalted in power, Full of Wisdom."
Islam is based on 05 pillars.
01. Faith (To testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and Mohammed(PBUH) is the Messenger of Allah!)
02. Establishing five times obligatory prayer
03. Obligatory charity (Zakaat)
04. Performing Hajj
05. Observing Fasting during the month of Ramadan. (Saum)
“Truly the religion with Allah is Islam”
‘And when those who associated partners with Allah see their (Allah’s so-called) partners, they will say;
‘ Our Lord! These are our partners whom we used to invoke besides you.’’ But they will throw back their word at
them (and say); ‘’Surely, you indeed are liars’’And they will offer (their full) submission to Allah (Alone) on that
Day, and their invented false deities (all that they used to invoke besides Allah, e.g. idols, saints, priests, monks,
angels, jinn, Jibrael (Gabriel), Messengers) will vanish from them'.
Superiority of a person who embraces Islam Sincerely :-
Narrated Abu Sa’id Al-Khudri (RA): Allah’s Messenger (PBUH) said;
“If a person embraces Islam sincerely, then Allah shall
forgive all his past sins, and after that starts the settlement of accounts, the reward of his good deeds will be ten
times to seven hundred times for each good deed and evil deed will be recorded as it is unless Allah forgives it”
(Bukhari 1:40(A) O.B)
'Allah burdens not a person beyond his scope. He gets reward for that (good), which he has earned, and he is
punished for that (evil), which he has earned." Our Lord! Punish us not if we forget or fall into error, our Lord! Lay
not on us a burden like that which You did lay on those before us, our Lord! Put not us a burden greater than we
have strength to bear. Pardon us and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. You are our Protector and give us
victory over the disbelieving people'.
(Quran - 02:286)
There is no God but Allah, Muhammad (Pbuh) is Messenger of Allah.
We seek the forgiveness of Allah the Almighty for any mistakes!!
Allah knows best.
