Now it is very crystal clear that the Islam religion is the life fashion as well as the messages of the lives of all the Prophets in the world. Hence, the Islam religion never consents to the phenomenon that diverse Prophets of the God Almighty established the diverse principles of the religion in the world for the people. As per the Islamic approach

Islamic Ideology on the Religious Heads of the Society

Generally, people at large believe that the Islam religion has been founded by the Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him). In many a books of various branches like the school curriculum books, books of History, books of literature as well as the books of general knowledge portray the Islam religion in such a tone as if the Islam religion has been initiated with the arrival of Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) himself. But Alas! in fact, this is the most alarming error and misconception of the people at large in the world because the Islam religion is, beyond doubt, God given religion i.e. the system of life.

The history of Islam religion dates back as much as that of the maiden foot step of the mankind on the surface of the earth. The very initial father of the radical human offspring in the world is the first Prophet Revered Adam (Blessings of Allah be on him) being the founder of the Islam religion in the universe. The term 'Islam' means 'obedience to God Almighty'. In the bygone eras, wherever and whenever the mankind got derailed from the obedience to God Almighty, the God Almighty did descend his messengers there and then. Hence, many a messengers came in the world and they all conveyed the message of nothing but obedience to God Almighty.

Thus, Islam religion is never the religion of Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) at all and, therefore, the terminology of “Muhammadanism” being used for the Islam religion today is fatally wrong because such terminology has/had no place in the Islamic dictionary. But, it is the real fact that Islam religion is perfected by Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) instead of being wrongly believed to have been founded by the Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him). The Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) is the very final Prophet of God Almighty as no Prophet is now to succeed him at all till the dooms day and as such the teachings as well as messages of him (Peace be upon him) is also correspondingly very final in the universe. The sacred Qur’an proclaims very flagrantly to the same effect as follows…………..

“Beyond doubt, the true religion to the God Almighty is Islam itself”. (Sureh Aali-Imran), it is further declared in the “Sureh Shurah” as, “He (The God Almighty) has preferred the same principles of the religion, the message of which had been descended to the revered Prophet Nooh (Blessings of Allah be on him) and the same has been sent to you (O, Mohammad, Peace be upon him) through the Divine Revelation and we had already sent the same message to the revered Prophets, namely, Ibrahim, Moosa and Isa (Blessings of Allah be on all pf them), with the assertion that be steadfast on the religion and never get alienated out of the religion.” (Sureh Shura Verse No. 13).

Now it is very crystal clear that the Islam religion is the life fashion as well as the messages of the lives of all the Prophets in the world. Hence, the Islam religion never consents to the phenomenon that diverse Prophets of the God Almighty established the diverse principles of the religion in the world for the people. As per the Islamic approach, the genuine and true messages of the Islamic personalities of the thousands years ago have been distorted and merged with their self developed myths by the selfish persons in the world, and consequently strange religions have been worked out. To the substance of the Islam religion, it is not the true and real messages of the Prophets of the God Almighty vis-à-vis revered Isa (Peace be upon him) as has been associated with their names today by the people in the world.

Today each follower of the religions claims to be precisely following their concerned religious dignitaries in the life. Certain names like Ram, Krishna, Buddha, Mahavir Swami, Kanfusias, Asho Jarthust, Socrates etc. are well prevalent and famous as the founders and religious scientists of various religions in the world. Now, a query arises as to who these religious personalities were in the days gone. Is there any argument available today to substantiate their life messages to be safe, secure and intact? Even to the extent that today certain such folktales have been related to these religious dignitaries as never befit to them at all.

As against it, the ideology of the sacred Qur’an in regard to the religious personalities is so much transparent, rational, justified and appealing to the human conscious that any wise person cannot help but submit to its authenticity and reality in the life. The sacred Qur’an proclaims very clearly as…………….
(1) “And of course, we did descend the messenger in each and every community in order to transmit the message to the effect that do worship only one God Almighty (The Monotheism) and be remote from the false Gods.” (Sureh: Nahal: 36)
(2) “And there was a guide for each community” (Sureh Raud: 07)
(3) “There isn’t any community which no Warner was sent to”
(4) “Of course, O! Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the messengers had been sent prior to you as well, pertaining to some of whom you have been apprised and some not” (Sure: Fatir: 24)

Hence, due to the same aforementioned elucidation of the Holy Qur’an with regard to all the religious figures preceding the Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him), the Muslims at large cannot express any slandering or incompatible expression against any of the religious personalities (Ram, Krishna, Buddha, Mahavir Swami, Kanfusias, Asho Jarthust, Socrates etc.) of the past. It is because that there is a high probability of their being none but the Prophets of the God Almighty Himself and subsequently their followers might have distorted their teachings and thereby established a new and unrecognized religions after their demise in the world. However, the Muslim mass cannot for sure believe these religious heads to be the Prophets of the God Almighty because, both, the sacred Qur’an as well as the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) are silent with regard to the particular mention of these religious heads being Ram, Krishna, Buddha etc.

Therefore, the Muslims at large can never endanger their faith in God Almighty (Iman) out of denying them and their status squarely because it is potential enough that their faith may stand jeopardized if they discount them. It is one of the imperative prerequisites to be a true Muslim to believe in all the messengers of the God Almighty descended on the earth in the eras elapsed. The sacred Qur’an dictates to the same effect as follows

(1) “Each Muslim does bear faith in Allah, the angels, the scriptures of Almighty Allah and in the messengers of Him. (And they say), we don’t discriminate among the messengers of the Almighty Allah.” (Sureh Bakar: 285)

(2) “O those who believe! have faith in the Almighty Allah, in His messengers and in the holy scripture that has been revealed to His messenger (Prophet Mohamed, Peace be upon him) and in those sacred scriptures that had been revealed unto the erstwhile Prophets of the Almighty Allah; and whoever defies the faith (Iman) in the God Almighty, in His angels, in His scriptures, in His Apostles and in the Hereafter, such ones have plunged into the irretrievable deviation. (Sureh: Nisah: 136)

(3) “And whoever has believed in the God Almighty and in all of His messengers without any discrimination among them, such ones shall surely be rewarded by the God Almighty.” (Sureh Nisha: 152)

(4) “Beyond doubt, whoever denies the God Almighty and His Apostles and resort to discrimination between the God Almighty and His messengers and declare that we believe in some of the messengers from among them and some not; willing to work out any middle path, are in deed the staunch atheists and we have already generated the disdainful retribution for such atheists.” (Sureh: Nisa:150,151)

Hence, attributable to the same foregoing flagrant verses of the sacred Qur’an, the great experts and preachers of the holy Qur’an are top alert and conscious against expressing any opinions haphazardly with regard to the any religious head in the life. The renowned Muslim scholars always advise the Muslims at large to entertain deadly silence on the religious heads whose mention is not available in the holy Qur’an because of the probability of them to be from none but the messengers of the God Almighty.

A great Muslim scholar, namely, Hajrat Allama Sayyad Sulaiman Nadvi while elaborating on the topic “The Rassole Vahdat” (Singularity Of Prophet hood) in the year 1932 said “A Muslim can never be a true Muslim at all in the spirit so long as he/she does not believe in all the messengers of the world concurrently with the belief in the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)” The Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) did teach to the people at large to believe in all the true messengers of the God Almighty at par without any distinction therein.

However, the entire volume of the Islam religion is silent pertaining to the precise number of the Prophets of the God Almighty,yet two categories of them have been depicted by the sacred Qur’an, (1) being categorically named in the sacred Qur’an (2) not being named in the holy Qur’an. Hence, given the second category of the Prophet of the God Almighty one may speculate about Socrates of Greece, Jasthost of Iran, Ramchandraji, Shri Krishna and Gautam Buddha of India and Kanfusious of China. It is because that the sacred Qur’an does dictate clearly that the Prophet did appear in each community in the past.

However, we cannot conclude very surely themselves as none but the Prophets of the God Almighty Himself as we don’t possess any means of evidence to regard them to be the Prophets of the God Almighty except the divine revelation on and of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) whereas the same authentic means does not determine the names of the Prophets of the second category i.e. it is silent in regard to the names of the 2nd category of the Prophets of the God Almighty. Yet it is incumbent upon each Muslim, to be a true Muslim, to believe in the prophets especially who have been particularly named in the sacred Qur’an and silently whose names are not reflected in the holy Qur’an.” (Source: A book on ‘Rasoole Vahdat’, page no. 13)
