Islam is a progressive religion being practice of Monotheism

The religion of Islam even today when we live in the highest height of the human civilization continues to be one of the misunderstood religions in the world. One reason for this is the fact that for centuries this beautiful religion has been unduly presented to the world through the so-called Muslim people, scholars, organizations and countries that do not act or function in an Islamic manner, according to the teachings of the Quran. As a consequence, Islam has not only got bad name while millions of people all over the world who claim them Muslims fail to prepare themselves for the Hereafter for following the conjectures and man-made doctrines instead of following the teachings of God found in the Quran. Quran is not only the final scripture but also a confirming and consolidating scripture, which makes easy for us to practice our religion making all the sense in the world to prepare our life for the Hereafter, even its mathematical coding support us to concentrate on specific sets of verses as proven truth to better understand certain matters eliminating corruptions and disputes found around us as we find Islam to be a progressive religion of God.

  • God teaches us in the Quran that Submission (islaam or al-islaam in Arabic) is a religion belongs to Him (3:19, 3:83, 3:85), which has come down from the past but updating its laws, teachings and practices from time to time through His messengers and prophets (21:2, 42:13) to make it prevail over any other religions (9:33, 48:28, 61:9):

[3:19] Indeed, the religion with God is Submission, and those who were given the scripture has not disputed except after what of the knowledge came to them out of jealousy between them. And whoever disbelieves in God’s revelations, then God is swift in reckoning.
[3:83] Is there then other than God’s religion they seek while whoever is in the heavens and the earth have submitted to Him willingly or unwillingly? And to Him they will be returned.
[3:85] And whoever seeks other than the Submission as religion, is never be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be with the losers.

[21:2] When a reminder comes to them from their Lord, that is new, they listen to it paying no attention.
[42:13] He has decreed for you the religion what He decreed for Noah, and what we have inspired to you (Muhammad), and what we decreed for Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: “You shall establish the religion, and not dividing in it.” It has been difficult for the idol worshipers which you call them to it. God chooses to Himself whomever He wills and He guides to Himself whoever turns (to Him).

[9:33] He is Who has sent His messenger with the guidance and a religion of the truth to make prevail it over the religion of any of it, even though has disliked the idol worshipers.
[48:28] He is Who has sent His messenger with the guidance and a religion of the truth to make prevail it over the religion of any of it. And there has sufficed with God as Witness.
[61:9] He is Who has sent His messenger with the guidance and a religion of the truth to make prevail it over the religion of any of it, even though has disliked the idol worshipers.

img10 Note: Here is the mathematical confirmation with a small set of verses to concentrate on sending prophets and messengers from time to time with the guidance and the religion with truth to make it prevail over any other religions.

  • He has given us religion what we should practice being sincere, devoted it to Him (39:2, 39:11, 39:14, 40:14) to prepare ourselves for the day to receive full recompose from Him (16:111). He wants His worshipers to be intelligent who will research and study (39:18), then they follow their sincere convictions verifying with their own intelligence given by Him (16:78,17:36, 23:78):

[39:2] Indeed, we have sent down to you (Muhammad) the scripture with the truth; so you shall worship God being sincere to Him in the religion.
[39:11] Say, “Indeed, I (Muhammad) have been commanded to worship God being sincere to Him in the religion.”
[39:14] Say, “I (Muhammad) worship God being sincere to Him in my religion.”
[40:14] So, you (Muhammad) shall call upon God being sincere to Him in the religion, even though has disliked the disbelievers.
Note: Even though references found with the prophet but are equally applicable to all the believers to worship God being sincere to Him in the religion.

[39:18] They are the ones who examine all words, then follow the best. These are the ones whom God has guided; these are the ones who possess intelligence.

[16:78] And God has brought forth you from your mothers’ wombs not knowing anything. And He has made for you the hearing and the eyesight and the hearts that you may thank.
[17:36] And do not follow what has not had any knowledge of it for you. Indeed, the hearing, and the eyesight, and the heart – each of those has made accountable about it.
[23:78] He is Who has given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the understanding. Little is what you appreciate.
Note: God has given us ways and means to practice His religion in a right way upon verification using our own knowledge.

[16:111] The day will come when every soul will be pleading for itself, and every soul will be paid in full for whatever it had done, and they will not be wronged.
Note: Every soul will be given the precise compensation on the Day of Judgment.

img11 Note: Here is the mathematical confirmation from a small set of verses to practice God’s religion being sincere devoted it to Him upon examining and verifying with our own intelligence given by Him to prepare ourselves to receive the precise reward from Him on the day of Judgment.

  • The truth stated in the Quran is very simple to follow that makes all the sense in the world, and makes people happy while any deviation from it does not make sense rather makes people miserable (5:16; 10:64; 92:7):

[5:16] God guides with it (Quran) whoever has sought His acceptance to the ways of peace; and He brings them out of the darkness into the light by His leave; and He guides them to a straight path.
[10:64] For them there is good news in the worldly life and in the Hereafter. There is no change of God’s words. Such is the great success.
[92:7] We will provide him with ease.

  • God teaches us to invite to His path with the truth on the basis of a clear proof as well as with wisdom and enlightenment advocating righteousness and forbidding evil to be a community of those who can be the winners (7:181; 12:108; 16:125; 3:104):

[7:181] Among our creations, there are those who guide with the truth, and the truth renders them righteous.
[12:108] Say, “This is my path: I invite to God, on the basis of a clear proof, and so do those who follow me. God be glorified. I am not an idol worshiper.”
[16:125] You shall invite to the path of your Lord with wisdom and kind enlightenment, and debate with them in the best possible manner. Your Lord knows best who has strayed from His path, and He knows best who are the guided ones.
[3:104] Let there be a community of you who invite to what is good, advocate righteousness, and forbid evil. These are the winners.

  • God’s religion has evolved over the period of time according to His will to make it fit to the respective generation of people, even though the core message and practices always been the same for all generations of people. It is the religion of Adam and Eve but in a simple form just a few words that were given to them to recite to redeem themselves (7:23 & 2:37) and the continuation is found in the similar words given to us in sura 1(Al-Fatehah – The Key) for our redemption as well. However, the religious rites that we practice today were given to Abraham that came down to us through the practicing of people generation after generation, and Muhammad was commanded to continue these practices (4:125, 16:123, 22:78) through whom we received the final scripture (33:40):

[7:23] They (both) said, “Our Lord, we have wronged our souls, and unless You forgive us and have mercy on us, we will be losers.”
[2:37] Then Adam received words from his Lord, and He redeemed him. He is the Redeemer, the Merciful.

[4:125] And who has better religion than one who has submitted himself to God and is a righteous and follows religion of Abraham, monotheism? And God has chosen Abraham as a friend.
[16:123] Then we inspired to you (Muhammad) that you shall follow religion of Abraham, monotheism; he was not an idol worshiper.
[22:78] And you all shall strive in God of His true striving. He has chosen you and has made no difficulty upon you in the religion, a religion of your father Abraham. He (God) has named you submitters before and in this that the messenger would be a witness over you, and you would be witnesses over the people. So, you shall observe the Contact Prayer (al-salata) and shall give the Obligatory Charity (al-zakata), and shall hold fast to God; He is your Protector, so has been the excellent Protector and has been the excellent Supporter.

[33:40] Muhammad has not been a father of anyone of your men, but has been a messenger of God and a seal of the prophets. And God has done being Knower of everything.

  • God has sent down the Quran, the last reminder for the world (12:104, 38:87, 68:52, 81:27), and has made certain promise and prophecies in it that are destined to fulfill at the right time to guide the humanity in the right direction. The mathematical coding of the Quran (74:30-37) being a reminder (74:31) has been unveiled by His messenger for the humanity when it needs it through the fulfillment of the connected divine promise and prophecies in the Quran (3:81, 33:7, 15:9, 27:82) supported with a sign of 19 (74:30). This reminder provides physical proofs to bring people back to His revelations as well as to guard every aspect of the revealed Quran against any human intervention to continue to exist to be a pure Quran until the end of the world as well as to purify the God given practices corrupted over the period of time:

[12:104] And you do not ask them any wage for it. It is but a reminder for the world.
[38:87] It is but a reminder for the world.
[68:52] It is but a reminder for the world.
[81:27] It is but a reminder for the world.
Note: The Quran is a reminder for the world.

[74:30] Over it is nineteen.
Note: Here is a hint being the mathematical coding of the Quran is a message given to a messenger of the covenant and a sign to support the messenger including 19 being a common denominator of mathematical analysis of the Quran.
[74:31] And we have not made guardians of the Fire except angels, and we have not made their number except a warning for those who disbelieved, that it may ascertain those who have been given the scripture (Jews and Christians) and may increase faith of those who have believed (Muslims), and may not doubt those who have been given the scripture (Jews and Christians) and the believers (Muslims). And that may say those in their hearts there is a disease (hypocrites) and the disbelievers, “What has God meant by this allegory?” Thus, God misguides whomever He wills and He guides whomever He wills. And none knows your Lord’s soldiers except He. And it is not except a reminder for the human race.
Note: Here there is mention of the mathematical coding of Quran is a reminder for the people of the world.
[74:32-34] Nay, (I swear) by the moon, and the night when it has departed, and the morning when it has brightened.
[74:35] Indeed, it is surely one of the great (reminders).
Note: The reminder as mentioned in the feminine gender form in 74:31 is the great as the Quran, which has been affirmed followed by an oath of God including 3 items in the oath from His creation.
[74:36-37] A warning to the human race. For whoever has willed from you to advance or regress.
Note:The mathematical coding of Quran as mentioned in 74:31 is a reminder and a warning, whether it may be accepted to advance or may be rejected to stay behind when it comes to them.

img12 Note: Here is the mathematical conformation of the message spelled out in the above verses unveiled by the messenger of God prophesied in the Quran, is a reminder for the humans.

[3:81] And God took a covenant from the prophets: “Surely, whatever I have given you of the scripture and wisdom, then a messenger has come to you confirming that which is with yourselves. You must believe in him and you must support him.” He said: “Have you affirmed and have accepted My covenant on that?” They said: “We have affirmed.” He said: “Then you shall bear witness and I am with you among the witnesses.”
[33:7] And when we have taken their covenant from the prophets, and from you (Muhammad), and from Noah, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, son of Mary. And we have taken a solemn covenant from them.
[15:9] Indeed, we have sent down the reminder (Quran), and indeed, we will surely be protectors of it.
[27:82] And when has fulfilled the punishment upon them, we have brought forth for them a creature from the earth to speak to them that the people have been with our revelations do not ascertain.

img13 Note: Here is even the mathematical conformation of sending the messenger confirmed in the Quran supported with a sign 19, which is also a code of the Quran unveiled through the fulfillment of a major covenant placed in every scripture including the Quran, and the connected promise and prophecies.

Now we live in an age of reason and not of blind faith. It is thus necessary for any intelligent person to debate all matters and not to succumb to the influence of their native environment alone. One should not just rely on the religious background passed on through parents or the society alone. God has given us the opportunity to explore His religion to understand it better, even using the knowledge of the mathematical coding of the Quran to perfect our beliefs and practices avoiding misconceptions and corruptions. Thus, we may reflect to the fact that Islam is a progressive religion of God that should not be trapped in time and place nor to be associated with any particular prophets and messengers either, and we may advance believing and accepting the truth upon verification or we may stay behind due to our doubt and disbelief. When God teaches us to use our intelligence to be a true Muslim (Submitter), then why should we not do it found as proven truth being sincere to make our journey simple and easy by understanding God’s religion as dictated by Him and follow what makes sense to us befitting to the generation we are living now?
Peaceful Friday, Salaam and God bless.
