Selecting a Spouse

The first thing we should look for when marrying is how committed the person is to Islam. Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi was sallam) said“A woman is normally sought as a wife for her wealth, beauty, nobility, or religiousness (adherence to Islam), but choose a religious woman and you will prosper.” (Sahih Muslim) Read the rest of this entry

Theologically speaking, the universality of Prophet Muhammad’s message (peace and blessings be upon him) comes from the concept of Allah who is the God of all, not only the God of Muslims.

Allah describes Himself in the first chapter of the Qur’an -which is recited by all Muslims around the world in their five daily Prayers- as “Rabb al-`Alamin” i.e. the Allah of all creation. Whether humans are aware of this fact or not, Allah is the God of all mankind – Muslims, Christians, atheists, etc. – regardless of their differences.

The Qur’an declares that a gigantic star and an atom are shoulder to shoulder, worshipping Allah; flies and elephants are brothers and sisters; all of creation is here to help us understand the meaning and the mystery of the universe.
