Personally, I believe that in the Muslim religion, the first and most crucial part of the faith system is the belief in Allah. A better understanding of Allah and his uniqueness guides a believer in having a well-founded knowledge of the pillars of faith. Allah sends his guidance to the humanity through prophets, angels and books. Reflecting on my religion life, I believe that Allah talks to me through his book (the Quran), angels and Prophet Muhammad.

Through the messages, God’s wisdom and Justice is reflected in the world. Personally, I always see God’s power and external knowledge on everything in the world through equal distribution of resources. For example, God provides free air for everyone which represents his mercy for all humanity regardless of their geographical location.

My elderly clansmen believe that Prophet Muhammad was a descendant of Abraham. He was and is the most influential man in history. He managed to receive the Quran and through him we communicate to Allah. He has contributed to the manners, ethics, and morals, economic, social and political systems we are observing today. He champions Allah’s message through other prophets as he is clean and full of sacrifices and hardships which are a true model for the believers.

My reflection on Prophet Muhammad life gives the confidence that sacrifice and hardship in this life show the true definition of a life well lived. Secondly, from Prophet Muhammad’s message, (may peace be upon him) I believe Allah speaks to us. He is the bearer and role model of the followers of Allah. Through him, Allah fulfils our needs.
