Why is Muhammad important to Muslims?
Muslims believe that Muhammad is the Last Prophet and Allah’s Messenger as he brought the Qur’an (Muslim’s holy book) to the people. They also believe the Qur’an is made entirely of Allah’s word to them and that when he gave Muhammad the Qur’an’s word, Allah told him all the words which he committed to memory and had to scribes to write it down for him later as he could not read or write. This is why Muslims say that Muhammad could not have copied the Qur’an’s word from another holy book (such as The Bible or The Torah). When he was 25, Muhammad married Khadija, a wealthy widow who trusted him and put him in charge of her trading business. Firstly, Muhammad is important to Muslims because he is believed to be Allah’s messenger. Although Muslims believe that there is only one God (Muslims have to recite this when they are becoming a Muslim, in Arabic it’s called La Illaha Muhammadur Rasullilah and it’s one of the five pillars - Shahadah) and Allah relies on no-one, Muhammad was Allah’s messenger and he was used as a link between the people and Allah. Muhammad was chosen to be Allah’s messenger because he was very reliable, trustworthy and determined to start this religion; he even set up the first Muslim community (Ummah). Secondly, Muhammad is important to Muslims because he is believed to be Last Prophet, out of 147,000 prophets (such as Adem - Adam, Yaqub - Jacob, Yusuf - Joseph, Nuh - Noah, Ibrahim - Abraham, Musa - Moses, Lut - Lot, Isa - Jesus) Muhammad was the last and greatest Prophet. When he brought the words of the Qur’an to the people from Allah, he told them that he was the last prophet and that no other prophet would come after him. Muhammad is also important to Muslims because he brought the word of the Qur’an to the people; non-Muslims may argue that Allah could have used any other man to bring the Qur’an to the people and be the last Prophet but Muslims say that Muhammad was insan-e-kamil (the perfect man)...
...Why is Muhammad (pbuh) important to Muslims?
Muhammad (pbuh) is extremely important to Muslims all around the world, and a sacred symbol for the Islamic religion. Pbuh stands for ‘peace be upon him’. This abbreviation is added along with his name all around the world as a sign of respect for him. Not only that, but Muslims do this to give peace upon him. Muhammad was not able to read or write so his was known as an ‘illiterate’ when he was born, and until he died. Because of this, when ‘Allah’ talked to him, he had to preach to other people and then they had to write them down. All of these saying were kept and treasured and then were finally added into books like the Qur’an and the Hadith. This essay will cover just exactly whyMuhammad is so important to Muslims today.
Muhammad (pbuh) was by far the most important prophet on Earth to Muslims. He was also the last Islamic Prophet. I believe that one reason why he was important was because of the reason he was the last prophet. I also believe that Muslims treasure him as the last prophet because no other prophet came after him and he left the ultimate saying, rules on the guide to how Allah wanted them to live. Muhammad also received the...
... Muhammad is considered in Islam to be a messenger and prophet sent by God to guide humanity to the right way. He is considered as the last in a series of prophets sent by God. The Quran is believed to have been presented to Muhammad by God. Muhammad is know as the greatest of all prophets to the Muslims, and his religion as the only accepted religion of God. He is seen by Muslims as a possessor of all virtues. The scattered verses of the Prophet had been inscribed not only on date leaves and shreds of leather but on “the hearts of men.”
Muller says, “Now Muhammad had certainly not lived like an angel” referring to how Muhammad had raided one of their caravans in the holy month of pilgrimage. He also says this because in 632 Muhammad confused his followers by dying. In war Muhammad lied to his men promising them that if they were to die in battle that they would marry seventy dark-eyed virgins. Muhammad also had preached gospels that where unholy. I his gospels he encouraged war and had no message of peace. He also had eleven wives making him unholy, but this had to do with the time and place that he lived in. to everyone but strong MuslimsMuhammad was a bad person and a mortal. But to the Muslims he was a descendent of God. Yet Muhammad was a great man, superior to his time...
Why is college important to me?
I often dream about becoming a successful business owner of my own restaurant “T. C’s Jamaican Restaurant, but to attain this goal I must acquire a college education that teaches me how to become the best manager in that industry.
Education is important to me because coming from a family of 8 in Jamaica, I was the only one who went to college and for my brothers and sisters to see that I could reach my goal in life sets a higher standard for them.
Another reason it is important is it opens my eyes to see a better future and quality of life for those around me. Seeing that I can help my family in Jamaica, especially my mom out of poverty and not be ashamed of where we lived anymore. My mom was my motivation in life to become the person that I am right now, and to see that I have exceeded that and more, motivates me to push even harder.
I hope that I have motivated my daughter to do that same to go after her dreams and never give up like how my mother did for me.
A college education helped me to gain the knowledge of the world around me, it showed me how to live a better life and how to become a mature adult who looks and plans towards the future. How to get things done the correct way by following the correct procedures and policies in everything. In Jamaica and in the United States the laws are totally different, so with me attaining my studies in the United States of America, I...

The six basic faith affirmations
Muslims have been taught to practice their religion through these six basic faith affirmations. This religion was instituted through a prophet named Mohammed and his Muslim people. Muslims believe that these six basic faith affirmations are very essential to the religion and obtaining God’s Grace. Muslims believe there is only one God and the word for God is Allah. This brings us to the first basic faith affirmation, the belief in Allah. It is said in the book ok Quran that, “He is the One God. God the Eternal, the Uncaused Cause of All Being. He begets not, and neither is He begotten; and there is nothing that could be compared with Him” (Quran 112: 1-4). The purpose of this first affirmation is to recognize Allah and His almighty power. Once Muslims understand the power of Allah and that He is the one who they should be following they can truly devote all of their worship and praise to Him and Him alone. It is important to understand the difference in how Muslim’s view God and how other Christians view God. Other Christian view God as the trinity, The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost, while Muslims view God as beyond our sight and understanding. This concept is further explained in the Quran where its states, “Indeed, they disbelieve who say, “God is the third of three (in a trinity),”...
...Prophet Mohammed (pbuh), as a central part of the Islamic constitution which should be used to guide all Muslims in all their affairs. Muslims generally hold the Quran in high regard and recognise it as the words of Allah. However, in recent decades Muslims as individuals and as collective societies have failed to implement the commandments and revelations of the Quran in their daily lives. Some key factors which have led Muslims generally to neglect Allah’s commandments in the Quran include negative portrayal of Islam in the media, modern social and cultural environment and a lack of knowledge and ignorance of the rulings contained in the Quran. This essay will illustrate how these factors have a major impact on Muslims and their religious practice.
Mass media is significant factor which has led some Muslims to be misguided from Quranic teachings. It has become an essential part of every household. It plays a substantial effect on shaping Muslim thought and actions. Allah swt says in the Quran “When news concerning peace or fear comes to them, they go about spreading it. Had they referred it to the Messenger and to those having authority among them” (Usmani,2000,4:83), however Muslims have disregarded this command in recent times and instead relied on the media and allowed it to shape their Islamic philosophy. According to Aly (2007), mass media have...

Army Museum of Singapore- “Birth of Our Army-From the Flames of Riots and Bombings” Exhibit
Why is Army Museum of Singapore important to the state?
Dr Goh Keng Swee, father of the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) once said, "We must never forget that our existence as an independent sovereign state cannot be made to depend on the sufferance of others." (S.Quek, 2010). With this single statement, he was able to reiterate the importance of having a national army to defend Singapore. Since the British shocking defeat of “impregnable fortress Singapore” to the Japanese during World War Two, foreign supremacy was immediately dispelled and Singapore no longer rely on foreign protection after her independence from Malaysia. Instead, there was a strong national sentiment to build a strong army to defend Singapore from internal and external threats so that her survival will never be again be determined in the hands of foreigners. Therefore, this essay aims to examine the hidden messages in this exhibit, which are reasons for the development of a national army and how the SAF’s presence during the 1964 Racial Riots was a clear indication of its importance in maintaining peace and stability, especially at a time of regional conflict and domestic strife.
By collecting and displaying old artifacts, The Army Museum of Singapore (ARMS) serves not only as a...
...Historical adult education * 2.3 Educators * 3 References * 4 External links |
Programs provide one-to-one tutoring and small group sessions for adults at the 6th grade level or below. Public libraries, nonprofit organizations and school systems administer these programs across the country. Many adult education centers from community colleges receive grants from Welfare and Unemployment departments to offer training to welfare and unemployment recipients to help these individuals gain life and work skills to facilitate their return to the mainstream. They also provide programs for ex-offenders to reintegrate to society.
Educating adults differs from educating children in several ways. One of the most important differences is that adults have accumulated knowledge, work experience or military service that can add to the learning experience. Another difference is that most adult education is voluntary, therefore, the participants are generally better motivated. So researcher André Lemieux (Université du Québec à Montréal) pointed out that the learning of wisdom should be the focus of future university programs to educate the elderly in one of his research.
Adults frequently apply their knowledge in a practical fashion to learn effectively. They must have a reasonable expectation that the knowledge recently gained will help them further their goals. One example, common in the 1990s, was the proliferation of computer...
... Why ICT need to be used for the survival and growth of in manufacturing
