Religions before the completed IslamEstimated reading time: 2 minutes, 25 seconds
According teaches of the Holy Quran starting of religion Islam is from first prophet and first man Adam (peace be upon him) as it said in
Surah no 3 verse no 33, 34:
“Verily, Allah has chosen, Adam and Nuh (Noah) and the family of Ibrahim and the family of Imran over all the worlds a progeny some of whom resembles the others (in faith). Allah is all-hearer, all- knower”
There is no doubt about it that the prophet Ibrahim was pure Muslim as it said in
Surah no 3 verse no 67:
“Ibrahim was neither a Jew, nor a Christian, but he was upright a Muslim, and was not one of those who associate partners with Allah.”
So we can say that first prophet Adam was also Muslim and follower to religion Islam because the Adam, Nuh, Ibrahim, and his family were preferred. So I have said above that starting of religion Islam is from Adam (peace be upon him) to Isa (son of Maryam peace be upon him) but the religion Islam was yet uncompleted. It completed by last prophet Muhammad son of Abdullah as Holy Quran says in
Surah no 5 verse no 3:
“Today, I have perfected your religion for you, and have completed my blessing upon you, and chosen Islam as Deen (religion and a way of life) for you.”
So religions before the complete Islam were uncompleted and for a limited period because the teaching of Islam revealed on prophets slowly in parts that mankind can obey it. So it will be said that religions before the Islam were uncompleted and it completed by the last prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). For example a child when he was born his dress will be prepared to size his body. His body will progress slowly and after five years his body will not be able to wear that childhood dress so his dress also will be long as his body. After passing a long period his body will not progress and will stay on a limited length. At that time his dress size also will be fixed and he will not need to change the dress size because the body has completed.
Like to the body the religion Islam was as a child at the time of holy prophet Adam (peace be upon him) and it’s teaches also were shorts and uncompleted. At the time of holy prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) it became as a complete young and it teaches also completed and cancelled all religions before the Islam. So Allah the greatest said now I have completed Islam as mentioned above.
So when we strengthen our faith in Allah and his religion and the teachings of the Holy Quran, so He enlightens our soul and does what is best for us as he is the creator of this universe and knows what is the best thing.
