Islam (n.) 1816, from Arabic islam, literally “submission”, from root of aslama “he resigned, he surrendered, he submitted,” causative conjunction of salima “he was safe,” and related to salam “peace.”
Six essential beliefs. Requirements for being a Muslim.
- Belief in One-God (الله).
- Belief in Angels.
- Belief in the Holy books (Taurat, Gospel, and Quran).
- Belief in the prophets (Adam – Muhammad)
- Belief in the Day of Judgement.
- Belief in God predestination.
Qur’an explicitly instructs believers not to prostrate to the moon. To worship or give worship to the moon or any other celestial body would go against Islam. Which in essence makes it impossible for the God of Islam to be the moon.
Chapter (Surah) 41 verse (Ayat) 37
SAHIH INTERNATIONAL – And of His signs are the night and day and the sun and moon. Do not prostrate to the sun or to the moon, but prostate to Allah , who created them, if it should be Him that you worship.
Arabic: وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ اللَّيْلُ وَالنَّهَارُ وَالشَّمْسُ وَالْقَمَرُ ۚ لَا تَسْجُدُوا لِلشَّمْسِ وَلَا لِلْقَمَرِ وَاسْجُدُوا لِلَّهِ الَّذِي خَلَقَهُنَّ إِن كُنتُمْ إِيَّاهُ تَعْبُدُونَ
A verse (Ayat) that encompasses all the laws of Shari’ah. Some scholars have stated the most comprehensive is Al-A’raf 7:31. As it has a command, a prohibition, permissibility, and information.
Qur’an 7:31 O children of Adam, take your adornment at every masjid, and eat and drink, but be not excessive. Indeed, He likes not those who commit excess.
Arabic:يَا بَنِي آدَمَ خُذُوا زِينَتَكُمْ عِندَ كُلِّ مَسْجِدٍ وَكُلُوا وَاشْرَبُوا وَلَا تُسْرِفُوا ۚ إِنَّهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُسْرِفِينَ
