Bismillahirrahmanirrahim - in the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
So Muhammad as a man had died and left the world, but as a Prophet, his legacy lives on in the form of the Al Qur'an and Sunnah. If people hold fast to them, they will never go astray. The teachings he left for us, if put into practice in their true spirit and proper way, will bring happiness to life in this world as well as in the life to come. In this sense, Islam is a worldly religion that considers first the worldly affairs of humanity, then the Hereafter (Jennah) which is an eternal continuation of the worldly life. Hence, the sensible approach is to follow the way shown to us by Prophet Muhammad whose conduct was the Qur'an; which is a guidance from Allah and for which P. Muhammad was given authority by God to interpret. That is why Muhammad's conduct
was is the most exemplary expression of human conduct!
As for the verse I would like to share today is:
1:5-7 You alone we worship; You alone we ask for help. Guide us to the straight and right path, the path of those whom You have favoured; not the path of those who earn Your anger nor of those who go astray.
