The concept of Islam
To understand some of the terms read the following saying of Imam Ali(AS) . One of the important terms in religion is “Islam”, to clarify the word “Islam” Imam Ali (PBUH) said that:” I will describe Islam in a way that no one has made before me, Islam is submission.
According to Imam Ali (AS) there are six stages for Islam. Islam is a submission, and submission is certainty, and certainty is the affirmation of truth, and affirmation of truth is acknowledgment, and acknowledgement is performance of what is obligatory, and performance of what is obligatory is appropriate action.
Institution of Islam
Islam means submission to the will of God, obey him and seek his consent, Islam has three institution: First, confess to protect life and property, do not take the sword on the neck of people to keep their property, whether helper or a hypocrite. Second, belief and follow the rules and tradition, third is submitted to God which is also the main purpose.
The call of God
When the God created the saving life Islam, and invited every human to participate in it, so they can ensure their world and the hereafter by that. But some people are not taking advantage of these opportunities and destroy their happiness. According to Quran”And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah and he is invited to Islam, and Allah does not guide the unjust people”(As-Saff/ 7).
It is noticeable to say that if we do not welcome the call of God, it will show that the God is liar, which is the worst thing. This verse showed that the great injustice toward people is to prevent the growth of spirituality and happiness.
