When did Islam start?

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Islam is the name of the Way of Life which Allah has chosen for the believers since the creation of the first man on this planet earth! The day Allah sent Prophet Adam (a.s.) as His Vicegerent on this earth, is the day He ordained this Way of Life called Islam for him and his descendants.


All the Prophets who were sent by Allah declared and followed this deen of Islam; and all their followers followed the same. And this deen of Islam was perfected by Allah with the appointment of His Last Messenger (saws), and His Final Message unto mankind in the form of the Holy Quran.


Islam literally means to submit or surrender ones will to the Will of his Creator; and this Deen or Way of Life was ordained by Allah when He sent and appointed the first man on this planet earth! In that sense, Islam pre-dates any other community, movement, or religion!


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your Brother in Islam,
