“And let there be (Risen) from you a nation inviting to (all that is) good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful.” (Noble Quran, Surah Al-‘Imran, 3:104)
“You are the best nation produced (to set an example) for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and (you firmly) believe in ALLAH. If only the People of the Scripture had believed, it would have been better for them. Among them are believers, but most of them are defiantly disobedient.” (Noble Quran, Surah Al-‘Imran, 3:110)
“And when they forgot that by which they had been reminded, We (ALLAH) saved those who had forbidden evil and seized those who wronged, with a wretched punishment, because they were defiantly disobeying.” (Noble Quran, Surah Al- A’raf, 7:165)
“Hold to forgiveness; command what is right; But turn away from the ignorant.” (Noble Quran, Surah Al-A’raf, 7:199)
On the Authority of Abu-Saìd Al-Khudri, who reported that Muhammad (Peace be upon him) said, “Whoever (amongst you) sees something detestable (evil, sinful, wicked, unjust, wrong, etc.) let him (or her) change it with his (or her) hand, if he (or she) cannot do so, then with his (or her) tongue, and even if he (or she) cannot do so, then do so with his (or her) heart, and this is the weakest kind of faith.”
Although estimates vary, the Muslim population currently stands at 1.5 billion people. Islam is the fastest growing religion, through birth rates and conversions. Muslims come in all colours; the Far East, China, the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Russia and the Caucasus, Australia and New Zealand, Americas and so forth. Muslims are in a real sense everywhere on this planet.
A Muslim is a true Monotheist. There is no room for other deities, associates or partners with ALLAH, or intermediaries.
Is there a single statement or pronouncement that signifies a person is a Muslim? Yes, there certainly is. It is the Shahadah, the First Pillar of Islam.
