Three Departments Of Islam

Islam is the second largest religion and it is growing day by day (Alhamdulillah). Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) said: “Islam is to testify that there is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, to perform the prayers, to pay the Zakaat, to fast in Ramadan, and to make the pilgrimage to the House if you are able to do so”. Imaan (Belief), Salah (Prayer), Fast, Zakaat and pilgrimage to the House (of Allah Ta’ala) are also called the pillars of Islam.  These are the obligatory duties of a Muslim to perform all these activities. Basically Islam is divided in to three major categories. It all started up when Hazrat Ibrahim (A.S) and his son Hazrat Ismail (A.S) were constructing the house of Allah and were paying, Quran talks about their prayer: "Our Lord! Send amongst them a Messenger of their own, who shall rehearse Thy Signs to them and instruct them in scripture and wisdom, and sanctify them: For Thou art the Exalted in Might, the Wise." Hazrat Ibrahim prayed to Allah (SWT) to send a Messenger to this mankind who does three things: call them towards Allah (SWT), preaching instruct them in scripture and wisdom the last one is to sanctify them Actually this payer was for Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam), Allah Ta’ala fulfilled His promise and sent His Beloved messenger Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) for the guidance and direction of this mankind. Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) used to do all these things; he used to call people towards Allah Ta’ala. He was the one who broken down all the distance, race, and color barriers by saying “La Ilaha Ill Allah Muhammadur Rasool Allah (There is no god only Allah, Muhammad is the Rasool (Messenger) of Allah)”. The sun, moon earth, stars, trees, all of them are the signs o Allah (SWT). Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) used to recite the Ayats of Quran and used to convince pople about the Oneness of Allah, this was the prime Job of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW). The second department of Islam is learning the wisdom of Islam through the Scripture. There were 72 people called Ashab-e-Suffa, they used to learn the Quran and Hadith from Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) in Masjid-e-Nabwi. The third and last department of Islam is purifying the souls.  Rasulullah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wasallam) used to purify the souls of Sahaba (R.A).  After the departure of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) from this world, the sahabs kept on working in these three departments but after them there was a serious weakness in all of the departments. Many of the Muslims put themselves in the race of power crisis which is against the teachings of Quran.  When Muslims started Jihad for money, they started learning Quran for wealth and there were khankas (Khankah is a place where the scholars of Islam purify the souls of their followers) only to “generate business”, the downfall of Muslims started. (All praise is due to Allah, Lord of the Realms; and Prayers and Peace of Allah be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his family and companions)
