Articles Of Faith
The following are the six articles of faith in Islam. These are the basic beliefs that one must have in order to be considered a true Muslim. They are:
Belief in God Almighty; He is the Creator, Sustainer, and the only one that controls and holds dominion over all of creation. Belief in him requires recognizing that He is the only one worthy of our devotion, supplications, and worship.
Belief in all the prophets of God; Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Aaron, John the Baptist, Jesus Christ, and Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), as well as those not mentioned, take the time to believe in all of them, recognize their mission, and follow their message and teachings.
Belief in the original scriptures revealed by God to his Prophets; The Torah having been given to Moses, the Psalms to David, the Gospel to Jesus, and the Quran given to Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) are scriptures which are recognized by Muslims as revelation. The Quran, God’s final revelation, is a culmination of message of the previous scriptures; it is a standard by which we live by containing eternal guidance for the salvation of Mankind.
Belief in the angels; They are the unseen servants of God implementing his will and watching over mankind.
Belief in the Day of Judgment and the Hereafter; All of mankind will be called to account for their deeds and be righteously judged accordingly on the last day.
Belief in Divine design and decree; God has knowledge of everything, written all things, and all aspect he has willed must come to pass.
