In the name of Allah, The Compassionate
The source of All Mercy
ONLY ONE WAY TO SALVATION
Creatures of Allah! There is only one way to avert an approaching
* Have faith I Allah and His blessed prophet and cleanse your hearts
of any allegiances that are false.
*Continue doing good to your fellow creatures until the Day you are
*Invite others to the Path of righteousness with sincerity.
*And endure with perseverance every test and hardship that comes
These are not our words, but the words of your Lord:
By the declining day, surely man is in a state of loss,
save those who believes and do good deeds, and exhort
one another to the truth and exhort one another to the
Remember! Even slight defect in your faith is a cause for damnation . It is only
the sins, mistakes and shortcomings of ours that Allah will forgive through His
Mercy. Our Lord only warns us against placing another object ,idol, or ideology
before Him that is ,He does not allow any kind of association (Shirk).He says
Allah forgiveth not that partners should be set up with Him :but He forgivth
anything else to who He pleaseth; to set up partners with Allah is to devise a
sin most heinous indeed.
In the saying of the blessed Prophet we read:
Whosoever fills the entire earth with sins, but then dies without associating
any partner to me .I will meet him with the forgiveness equal to that.

Association (Shirk) And Lo! Even today our Muslim community has reached.
the verge of annihilation because of our indulgence in it:
Say (O Mohammad , to the disbelievers) : Travel in the land and see the
nature of the consequences for those who lived before you ! Most of them
were polytheists ( Mushrik)
In other words, tell them to explore the four corners of the earth and
look upon the ruins of the past. If older civilizations, which were

there is only One way to Salvation :Its true sons and daughters
must arise and realize that this world is simply a way station on your
journey to eternity and that each one of us is born to die. For such
reasons it is imperative to live our life as successfully and count.
One must, therefore:
* Protect himself from every kind of Association(Shirk).
* Be firm in affirming the Unity of the creator(Tauhid).
* Pattern his lifestyles after the most successful man in the History,
the blessed Prophet Mohammed (May the peace and blessing of
Allah be upon him).
This is the only way one can transform the approaching disaster
into certain success. If it is not done here and now then an awful
fate is inevitable.
Those who believed and did not pollute their belief with Shirk,
for them is peace and safety and they are truly the guided ones
(they are going to reach the goal)

Let us be perfectly clear about the meaning of Kalima
(the testimony of faith ) and let there be no doubt about its
implications. Then we must learn to hold ton innovation
(the bida) Only Tauhid and the way of the blessed prophet can
build our steps into the hereafter .Our Lord has promised to
defend us if we but try with sincerity.
The meaning of the first part of the testimony of faith,
La ilaha illa Allay is that is neither Father nor Son. Male

of being called:
