Introduction to Islamic Muamalat


The Islamic teaching was revealed since the prophet of Adam (pbuh) and the teaching is not only confined to belief and moral values, but also include laws that are suitable to be implemented by mankind. Islam to the Muslims is not just a religion but a way of life. The Arabic word 'Islam' simply means 'submission', and derives from the word meaning 'peace'. In a religious context it means complete submission to the will of Allah s.w.t.

Islam, the same truth that Allah s.w.t. revealed through all His prophets to the ummah. In fact the word Islam is not mere religion but is “deen” because it carries the meaning of ‘the way of life’ touches virtually every spectrum of life not only restricted to ritual and spiritual, but also encompasses not limited to political and economic as well. It is, in essence, the same message and guidance which Allah revealed to all Prophets, from Adam, Noah, Abraham, Ismael, David, Moses and Jesus (S.A.W.) and right through His last prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.), but the message which was revealed to Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W.) is Islam in its comprehensive and complete form. The Quran has emphasized the completeness of its teaching and this is in line with a Qur’an verse;

“This day I have perfected your religion for you, complete My blessing on you and approve Islam as the way of life for you” (Al-Maidah : 3 ).
