The secondary matter was Sharee'ah, or religious Law, which kept changing from tribe to tribe and nation to another. Allah the Most High alone knows what is good for His creation.
What Is Life?
Man's existence in this world and the creation of this entire universe are not mere accidents or products of a fortuitous nature. This universe, every single atom of it, manifests and leads us to the realization of a Loving, Merciful and All-powerful Creator. Without a Creator, nothing can exist. Every single human being is aware that.. More

The variety and complexity of the intricate systems, which constitute the fabric of both human beings.. More
An economist had once said: "Today, the only and the biggest threat to Western civilization is the faith and commitment of the Muslims to their Prophet Muhammad, sallallaahu 'alayhi wa sallam which is the source of unlimited strength for them."
