Islam is not a Nokia

There is nothing wrong in being modern, that’s if you're a fan of mobile phones. As times change, mobiles phones need to be redesigned in shape and size; from big to small and from thick to slim. Even the jet fighters and all sort of electronic or electric appliances, they are restructured and reformed to cope with customers demand and to maximize their efficiency. But Islam is not a Nokia. It could not easily change according to our taste since Islam itself is already a great and ideal religion.

Almighty Allah swt said, which means:
"Today I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favor towards you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion." (Qur'an Al-Maa’idah: 3)

Islam came to change the world with a perfect message and system of life, not to be changed by the world. In present era, it is hard to see Muslims practicing their religion 24 hours a day. Most of us are just being a part time Muslims. No wonder we are lagging behind in all fields and areas. We were oppressed by enemies physically and mentally. People would question why do these happened. Well, there are no other reasons except that we don’t have strong relationship with Allah and we are unattached with Quran.

So let’s open our mind and see what Muslims truly need. We need someone like Abu Bakr r.a. who will stand up with pride, honour and dignity. We need someone like Sultan Muhammad Al-Fateh who managed to conquer Constantinople at the age of 21. It is about time we will have to change. For Islam never change. If we wish to live our life as a Mukmin (believer), we have no choice except to make the Quran our guiding light. Dear readers the responsibility is ours. May Allah grant us the wisdom, courage and the strength to be a full time Muslims. Amin.

"The Quran admittedly occupies an important position among the great religious books of the world.....It first transformed a number of varied desert tribes of the Arabian Peninsula into a nation of heroes, and then proceeded to create the vast politico-religious organisations of the ‘Muhammadan’ world which are one of the great forces with which Europe and the East have to reckon today."
-New York: Everyman's Library, 1977-
