ALLAH does not change the state of people, until they change it themselves

2.6.12

Unique Characteristic Of Islam

Our Hadis teacher' teacher in one of his lectures said that Islam provides five benefits to it's followers which no other religion provides to their's. These are: 

1- Self-Preservation

2- Safeguard of Honour 

3- Safeguard of Property

4- Safeguard of Wisdom

5- Safeguard of Religion


I will explain one in each post. 


1-Self-Preservation:



Allah says in Quran: 


"Murder of a single person is equal to murdering whole humanity." 

"And do not kill your children for fear of poverty. We provide for them and for you. Indeed, their killing is ever a great sin." [17:31]

Islam emphasize over preserving each and every soul. The life is important and cherished - regardless of religion, background, ethnicity, culture or any of the worldly factors. 


In Surah Hujrat Allah says to whole humanity: 

 "..O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another..."

even if there's any division than it's for the diversity and versatility in this world. 


Than there's personal space too which is ordered not to be violated. It is said:

"O you who have believed, let not a people ridicule [another] people; perhaps they may be better than them; nor let women ridicule [other] women; perhaps they may be better than them. And do not insult one another and do not call each other by [offensive] nicknames. Wretched is the name of disobedience after [one's] faith. And whoever does not repent - then it is those who are the wrongdoers." (49:11)

It is a commandment which encompasses whole humanity. Believers are commanded not to make fun of any group at all and not only a Muslim group.
