Islam is the Perfect Religion

Islam is the religion of those who surrender themselves to God and not worship a god other than Allah. Islam has been perfect, so should Muslims believed. Islam is a religion that is blessed by Allah Ta'ala and not other religions, it must be understood.

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala says, (the meaning):

"... This day have I perfected for you your religion, and have chosen for you ni'mat my ends meet, and have chosen for ridhai Islam as your religion ..." (QS. Al Ma'idah: 3)
When Ibn 'Abbas read the verse, he said, "The Jews say: If only this verse came down in the midst of us, surely we will celebrate the fall of the verse is as festive (the big day or feast)."
Ibn 'Abbas said that this verse was revealed when the meeting of two feast namely the feast festive (Pilgrimage) and Friday.

Some of the lessons to be learned from the above verse
1. The teachings of Islam has been perfect so we do not need a religion and the other prophets. When the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam standing at Arafat when Haji Wada', come down the paragraph above. These are verses of the Qur'an that was revealed last. Because some down time after the verse, the Prophet sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam died, that is, after he returned to Medina after returning from Hajj.
This shows that when the Apostle sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam died, has perfected Islam.


A leading commentators -Ibnu rahimahullah- Kathir said of this verse, "This is the favor of Allah Almighty the greatest to the people where God has perfected their religion, so that they no longer require a religion other than the religion, also does not require Prophet other than their Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam. Therefore, God made the Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam as the Seal of the Prophets, and sent him to the jinn and mankind. So things that are halal is that he sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam lawful and unlawful cases is that he sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam forbade. "

2. No need for addition and subtraction in worship we are prohibited from doing heresy alias (deeds no guidance).
Ibn 'Abbas radi' anhuma said, "Allah has perfected Islam, so that they (Muslims) do not need to add to the teachings of the Apostle (forever) and Allah has made the teaching of Islam is perfect so that should not be reduced
(forever). If God has been blessing, then let there be no angry with the teachings of Islam (forever).

When Imam Malik rahimahullah discuss the paragraph above, he also alluded to the dangers of heresy. He said, "Whoever did heresy in Islam and he thought hasanah (good), it means it has been claimed that Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam has betrayed treatise.
For God has said (which means): "This day have my tune for you your religion ..."
If at the time of the Apostle of life, something not including the teachings of Islam, then today is not Islam. "

Of 'Aisha, the Prophet sallallaahu' alaihi wa sallam said: "Whoever makes a new case in our religion which no origin, then the case is fabricated."

3. The above verse is a rebuttal to those who discredit Islam by saying that Islam is not suitable for every age and every place.
Like the people who say that Islam is really old-fashioned and no longer suited to the current era. If it is said in verse that Islam was perfect means Islam is suitable for every age and place. If some superficial in understanding Islam, then that is wrong is not Islam, but because of the shallowness of mind. So Islam was perfect and true for every age for the servants until the coming of the Hour.

4. Embracing Islam is a very big favor, to be grateful.
If it is said in verse that God has replenish his favor, then this shows that Islam is the greatest favor to a servant. But who receives this favor, that they can take advantage. Conversely, anyone who reject it, they are innocent and will get dhoror (danger).

5. God bless only Islam, no other religion.
Mentioned in verse that God has bless Islam as a religion. Though Islam is said to have perfect as mentioned in the beginning of the verse. Thus, Allah has perfected Islam, has meridhoinya and has bless His servants. So blessed is Islam, not any other religion.
Allah the Exalted says, "Religion that is acceptable in the sight of Allah is Islam" (Qur'an, Ali Imran: 19).
After the arrival of the religion brought by our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, then other religions such as Christians can and Jews, all is vanity religion that is not blessed by God. In another verse says, "And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it occasionally will not be accepted (the religion) thereof, and in the Hereafter he is among those who lose." (Qur'an, Ali Imran: 85).

6. Rebuttal to declare all religions are equal.
The verse that we discussed and the last two verses mentioned above shows the erroneous understanding that states all religions are equal. There are claims that Christians can, Jews and Muslims are all religions are true and can usher in God as equally divine religions that descend from the sky. This clear understanding of misrepresentation and falsehood.
Because there is no true religion after the advent of Islam. The truth is Islam. After the coming of Islam brought by our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, terhapuslah previous religious teachings namely Jews and Christians.
Other religions may be removed or replaced, and that there is only one that is blessed by Islam. So that anyone who wants to go to heaven, then embrace Islam. Who actually seeks a religion other than Islam, then place in hell for it means that God has rejected religion ridhoi.

Judaism is the teaching of Moses' alaihis salam who was a religion and not deviate, then accepted. Similarly, Nashrani religion that does not deviate so. However, after the advent of Islam brought by our Prophet Muhammad sallallaahu 'alaihi wa sallam, the teachings of previously deleted, all that remains is Islam. So there is no choice and is obligatory to follow Islam as God commanded and this applies to every age and place.
Allah Ta'ala has ordered to follow the religion brought by Muhammad as mentioned in another verse, Say: "If you (really) love Allah, follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins." Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.
Say: "Ta'atilah Allah and His messenger, if ye turn away, then Allah does not love the disbelievers". (Qur'an, Ali Imran: 31-32)

To reinforce and clarify that only Islamic religion is accepted and blessed of God Almighty, let us consider again a verse of Holy Qur'an following:

Say: "O People of the Book, let (hold) to a sentence (provisions) that there is no dispute between us and you, that we worship none but Allah and not associate any partners with Him and not (also) some of us shall take others as lords besides Allah. "If they turn away, then say:" Bear witness that we are the ones who have surrendered (to Allah). "(Qur'an, Ali Imran: 64)
