Fitrah is the pure instinct inborn in every child, which recognizes Allah; if this instinct is not corrupted it leads to the belief in Allah’s Oneness
Allah(swt) says: ”Keep your face upon the true religion. This is the pure nature according to which Allah has created the people. There should be no change in Allah’s creation. Truly, this is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.” The Holy Qur’an, Chapter 30, Verse 30
Abu Hurayrah(ra) and Al-Aswad bin Saree(ra) said the Prophet(pbuh) said: ”Every child is born with the pure nature. It is his parents who then change him to a Jew, a Christian, or a pagan.” Sahih Al- Bukhari
“Allah has brought you out from the bellies of your mothers. You did not then know anything. He gave you hearing, seeing, and hearts, so that you can be thankful to Him.”The Holy Qur’an, Chapter 16, Verse 78
With the tools bestowed upon us by Allah like seeing, hearing and reasoning we should look at the world around us and notice the great truth that there is a gret Creator who made us and everything else and who takes care of us and everything else-this creator is Allah.
“That is Allah, your Lord. There is no god other than Him. He is the Creator of everything, so worship Him. And He also takes care of everything.”The Holy Qur’an, Chapter 6, Verse 102
Believing in Allah means three important things:
a) Allah is the Creator and Master of everything. He is the true Lord.
b) Allah has the best and greatest qualities. Many of His great qualities are clear from the greatness and beauty of the things that He created.
c) No one deserves our complete love and obedience but Allah. We need to obey Him and serve Him in the best way. We need to worship Him as He tells us. He is our only true God.
A person without this belief is totally lost and confused. He behaves like a scared rabbit in the middle of a thunderstorm, running here and there without a purpose or an aim.
A person who knows Allah is clear about himself and his purpose in life. He walks with sure steps in the right direction. He lives a happy life because he knows what he should do and how to do it.
