Is Islam Really the Last Religion?

on Saturday, August 24, 2013

This has been one of the hottest topics online in the recent few years. The answer to this question is logical and has to be answered with an open mind. With this in mind, it is certain that the religion that would be the last religion should have criteria like not limited by boundary. This is what religion like Judaism, Islam and Christianity has been able to do around the world. These three religions have a huge number of followers, Islam has around 1.8 billion followers while Christianity has 2.1 billion people and the followers are still counting. Islam is Abrahamic and monotheistic religion that is articulated by its Holy book, the Quran. The adherent or follower of Islam is called a Muslim and it has become one of the fastest ever increasing religion in the world.

It is not the three religions that believe in the God of Abraham, or God -the One and Only Almighty and there are lots of difference that is seen among these three religions. For Islam on concentration, it is believed that it is the last religion on earth, a final Abrahamic religion of Allah. It is not a newly found religion. The Quran has become the final word of Allah and has become intact since the revelation and Allah has made it His duty to protect the Quran even now.

Islam is currently the fastest growing religion in the world. It is not because of the higher birthrates of Muslims in poor nations that has accounted for this growth even as the developed nations have an ever increasing number of people joining. This is not only the reason why Islam is really the last religion on earth, it has always been which is why the faith is facing a lot of persecution and heat lately. It is not that it is not passing through persecutions before now, but it is getting massive with new policies hitting the faith from some countries around the world.

Allah the All Mighty Says (what means): “This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.” [Quran 5:3]. This was one of the last verses revealed chronologically to Prophet Muhammad , marking the completion of the Quran and the perfection of Islam. This means that Islam is perfect and complete without any abrogation. It is universal and eternal as it is Allah who made the Islamic law and there is no human who can adjust it. This is also the reason why Islam has been made to reign and prevail over a lot of religions around the world.

This is also the reason why Allah honored Islam because it is the Truth, making it the last religion in the world.The Quran says (what means): “And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him.”

It is in Islam that you would find happiness and it is a religion that has constituted the essence of the teaching of Islam, signifying there is One Supreme Lord of the universe. The Quran has made it possible that anyone can see clearly about the message of Allah and how to go to paradise as a saint.
