Moral Values & Good Deeds

"God has sent me to profess and practice moral values and good deeds."
~ Prophet Muhammad, Sharh as-Sunnah al-Baghawi

Islam firmly believes that the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him, is the prime exemplification of what every Muslim must strive to be, in conduct and in mannerism.

He is our moral compass; his peers have described him to be the living, breathing, walking Qur'an and one of the many Names of the Noble Qur'an is al-Furqan, the Criterion of Good and Evil. Hence, for a Muslim, the Prophet acts as a scale to measure and judge what is righteous and what is sinful. He is the one who guides the way for our morality to be of those who are saved by the Grace of God through Faith and through Deeds.

May God, Exalted is He, grant us the ability to follow the footsteps of His Holy Apostle and be among those to join his Companions and the People of the House in the Garden of Paradise. Amen.

— Fahim Ferdous Promi
