The Basic Beliefs of Islam

MV: This is just the basic things that Muslims believe in. I got from the book Islam Beliefs and teachings by Ghulam Sarwar. This should be stuff that you should already know but if you don’t you know now.

The Basic Beliefs of Islam are:

Allah

Angels of Allah (Malikah)

Books of Allah (kutubalah)

Messengers of Allah (rasulullah)

The Day of Judgement (yawmuddin)

Destiny (Al Qadr)

Life after Death (Akhirah)

These beliefs have been stated precisely in Al- Imanul Mufassal, the faith in detail:

Amantu Billahi, wa mala ikathi, wa kutabihi, wa rasulihi, wal yawmul akhiri,wal qadri kharihi wa sharrihi minallahi taala wa bothi badal mawt

Imanul Mufassal
Imanul Mufassal

” I believe in Allah, in His Angels, in His books, in His Messengers, in the last day (day of judgment), and fact that everything good or bad is decided by Allah the Almighty, and in the life after death.”

These seven beliefs can be grouped into three categories:

Tawhid(oneness and uniqueness of Allah):

  • Allah
  • Destiny

Risalah (prophethood):

  • Angels
  • Books of Allah
  • Messengers of Allah

Akhirah( life after death):

  • Day of Judgement
  • Life after Death

Tawhid, Risalah, and Akhirah summerise the whole of the Islamic system of life. So we must understand them.
