Some characteristics of Islam
In Islam, the concept of religion receives a new meaning. First, it is not treated as a dogma (an affirmation considered fundamental) that a man must accept if he wants to escape eternal damnation (a condemnation), but as a science based on humanity’s universal experience.
Thus, according to Islam, Divine revelation (or God’s communication with man) is an essential factor in the evolution of man.
And from its simplest form (that of the truths and religious laws revealed to the great Prophets of God), Divine revelation is the universal experience of humanity and the divine gift conferred on all the nations of the world.
Secondly, to further strengthen the idea of science in religion, Islam presents all its doctrines as principles of man’s conduct and action and makes every point of faith the basis for the man’s action to reach higher and higher levels of life.
Thirdly, the field of religion is not confined to the future world, its primary concern being the present life, during which man, through a virtuous life here on Earth, can attain the consciousness of a higher life.
And this is how the Quran, the Holy Book of Islam deals not only with the means that enable man to reach communion with God but also with those relating to the problems of the world, through important questions whose correct understanding allows man to lead a happy life.
It is a guide for personal progress, and also for the advancement of society, the nation, and even humanity. He prepares man for another life, but only by making him able to get by in the present life.

Believing in all the prophets
Believing in all the Prophets is one of the pillars of the Islamic faith. The major feature of Islam is that it requires its followers to believe that the great world religions that preceded it were revealed by God (Almighty); and thus, Islam establishes the foundation of peace and harmony among the world’s religions. According to the Holy Quran, there is not a single nation in the world in which a Prophet did not appear: “… And there was no nation but that there had passed within it a warner.” (Quran 35:24).
