اَلْحَمْدُ ِللهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِيْنَ

(1:2) Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the entire universe.

Whenever we praise someone, we do so for two reasons:

First, because excellence calls for praise, irrespective of whether that excellence has any direct relevance to us or not.

Second, we praise one whom we consider to be our benefactor. When this is the case our praise arises from a deep feeling of gratitude.

God is worthy of praise on both counts. It is incumbent on us to praise Him not only in recognition of His infinite excellence but also because of our feelings of gratitude to Him, arising from our awareness of the blessings He has lavished upon us.

 It is important to note that what is said here is not merely that praise be to God, but that all praise be to God alone. Whenever there is any beauty, any excellence, any perfection-in whatever thing or in whatever shape it may manifest itself- its ultimate source is none other than God Himself. No human being, angel, heavenly body-in short, no created being-is possessed of an innate excellence. wherever excellence exists, it is a gift from God. Thus, if there is anyone at all whom we ought to adore and worship, to whom we ought to feel indebted and grateful, towards whom we should remain humble and obedient, it is the creator of excellence, rather than its possessor.
(Tafheemul Quran)

Short Quotes

Enter Islam in whole

 يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُواْ ادْخُلُواْ فِي السِّلْمِ كَآفَّةً وَلاَ تَتَّبِعُواْ خُطُوَاتِ الشَّيْطَانِ إِنَّهُ لَكُمْ عَدُوٌّ مُّبِينٌ

(2:208) O Believers, enter completely into Islam and do not follow in the footsteps of Satan, for he is your avowed enemy.
God demands that man should submit, without reservation, the whole of his being to His will. Man's outlook, intellectual pursuits, behaviour, interaction with other people and modes of endeavour should all be completely subordinate to Islam. God does not accept the splitting up of human life into separate compartments, some governed by the teachings of Islam and others exempt. (Tafheemul Quran)
