The biggest challenge in learning Islam correctly today is the scarcity of traditional Scholars known as Allama. The lack of traditional scholars whether in Islamic law, in Quranic exegesis has given rise to an understanding of the religion that is far from scholarly, and sometimes far from the truth. In view of the need for all of us to get beyond clichés, the need for information from Islamic sources, the need to have information of fundamentals of Islam including what is the command of Almighty Lord about it.

From the first generation, the way of such people had also been considered the path of truth and guidance by the early Muslim community and its notables, of the Companions of the last Holy Prophet of Almighty God those who were taught by them, and those who came after them. It basically consists of dedication to worship, total dedication to God The Most High, disregard for the finery and ornament of the world, abstinence from the pleasure, wealth, and prestige sought by most men, and retiring from others to worship alone.


This was the general rule among the Companions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad and early Muslims. However, when involvement in this-worldly things became widespread from the second Islamic century onwards and people became absorbed in worldliness, those devoted to worship. But if this is true of origins, the more significant question is: Where are true Muslims now and what Muslims are doing is correct in light of their own religion.

Now, it is characteristic of the Islamic ethic that human actions are not simply divided into two shades of morality, right or wrong; but rather five, arranged in order of their consequences in the next world. The obligatory is that whose performance does God reward in the next life and whose nonperformance is punished.

The recommended is that whose performance is rewarded, but whose nonperformance is not punished. The permissible is indifferent, unconnected with either reward or punishment. The offensive is that whose nonperformance is rewarded but whose performance is not punished. The unlawful is that whose nonperformance is rewarded and whose performance is punished, if one dies unrepentant.
